    Re: QOTW: When did you last upgrade your mobile phone?

    I got a new phone a few weeks ago, but only because AT&T is about to boot a bunch of older models that don't do "HD Voice" off their network, including my previous Moto G6. Switched to a Moto G Power (2021).

    I miss the G6's front fingerprint button, which could also do things like swipe the screen back, much more than I miss its screen, which had a better resolution but washed out more easily than my new phone. Luckily, Cricket (my AT&T MVNO) subsidized the new phone, so it was ~$89 USD/£66 GBP.

    Got one of the flagships this summer. A decent compact camera for the upcoming trip was in a similar price, and the portability was a paramount. No regrets: photos are great.

    5½ years ago - Small 4.7 inch Samsung A3 (2017).

    Battery is still as new (Newer discharged to lower than 20%).

    I can't find another small (<5 inch) Android phone at a reasonably price !!

    I upgraded to the iPhone 12 mini last year, got it on the launch. Absolutely love the smaller form factor of it, while making only a small sacrifice on the camera front.

    Re: QOTW: When did you last upgrade your mobile phone?

    Bought an iPhone 7 new about 3 years ago so it was an older but current model still. Some things bugged me for a while mainly around lack of choice, but is better since it allows me to use Chrome as the default browser. Generally it does most things pretty well and has a long support cycle, otherwise I'm not really a big apple fan, battery is at 85% and with light usage would last me a couple of days still if I needed it too.

    Re: QOTW: When did you last upgrade your mobile phone?

    Almost 3 years with an Honor View 20. It had battery bulge at the start of the year, so with a new battery in it I expect it will do the job for another couple of years now that it's back to nearly 3 days of battery life. We've really reached the point where the performance increases aren't noticeable any more, and on the ARM side everything past A76 has been increased performance for increased energy. The efficiency of the "Big" CPUs hasn't moved forward more than 20% in a few generations.

    Almost 4 years old, my £300 LG6+ grey import is going strong if a bit underpowered. Battery life is great, it's robust and the gorilla glass has coped with many drops without damage, the only failure is the headphone jack.

    My main reason for changing would be for better camera's, but no way am I paying silly money for a premium phone.

    Re: QOTW: When did you last upgrade your mobile phone?

    Well whaddya know.... Last week I finally upgraded, after almost seven years!
    I wouldn't normally, but I do now need a better phone, this one was second hand anyway so a bit clapped out, and many apps can no longer run/update on my current phone because it's so old.
    Don't actually have the new phone yet, either, as there are supply shortages in the UK!

    Spring of 2020, Samsung S20. Still going strong, but if S22 will have some amazing features, I might sell mine and buy it. In particular I am looking for better battery life and maybe better video capabilities.

    Re: QOTW: When did you last upgrade your mobile phone?

    I swore my OnePlus 7 pro would last me at least 3 or 4 years, but then Amazon went and had an offer on the 9 Pro last Amazon day, so I bought one. The 7 Pro is still going, as my wife smashed the screen on her Moto G about the same time as I ordered it, so everyone's happy.

    I'm definitely keeping this one for 3 or 4 years. Honest.

    Don't even use a phone.
    Gave up on them about 10 years ago and I've never missed it one bit.

    Re: QOTW: When did you last upgrade your mobile phone?

    Realme X50 Pro 5G back in the spring when I broke the screen on my Xiaomi Mi Mix 2s. Still prefer the 2s but it wasn't worth getting the screen replaced without doing the battery too as it wasn't holding a great charge and the offer on the X50 was pretty good at the time (around £300 IIRC).
