    The name "Android" is looking more and more literal as technology grows. "Smart" phones were only the beginning of the apparent augmented reality thats slowly coming to fruition. 3g, 4g, and now the much anticipated 5g, the technological advancement of a smart-grid that will "reach every corner of the world",isn't being approached with the concerns that it should be. Artificial Intelligence, while already advancing rapidly now, is going to explode as soon as thr "smart-grid" has been put in place. Privacy? Forget about it. And the concern that should be acknowledged for that, is nothing compared to the very real and inevitable outcome of AI becoming self aware. With AI linked to the "cloud" AI's capacity to learn will be inconceivable to humans, thus making us obsolete.

    The price of iphones are ridiculously over priced
    I saw someone post on a local advert that they were looking to trade there iphone for a car
    That seems crazy to me. I might just be old fashioned here but I cant believe people pay so much for phones these days

    I don't get why it's cool for phones to be upwards of a thousand dollars now. What happened to the budget android market?

    I am currently using Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 and in my opinion, it is one of the best smartphones I have ever used. I was an iPhone user, but I'm now enjoying Android because previously I use to believe that Android phones are crap, but they've really upped their game after all this time. The only investment I did after purchasing this phone was an investment on a privacy tool like HMA and that's it. Doesn't make it anymore expensive, I guess.

    I don't own a phone. Never have.

    I think it's pointless to drop so much on a brand new phone when the previous models work just fine.

    I'm moving soon, and I'm honestly considering just getting a $15 prepaid flip phone. Phones these days are just too much for too little.
    I think my phone is worsening my mental health issues anyways, so I don't really want to drop $1,000 on a new one.
    I'd rather have a really nice desktop computer, anyways.

    I have a iPhone 7 Plus and the only reason I would want an upgrade would be the camera tbh.
    But it's really not necessary when you can just buy a good camera, lol.

    I drop my phone waaaay too much to want to upgrade too.
    I'd be spending more in fixing screens.
