Many of you who watch my channel remember last year’s debacle as I upgraded my cell phone. I prefer to have a Note phone by Samsung and when I bought that Note 7 last year I was very happy …until they started literally blowing up. So here we are about a year later and now we have the latest and greatest the IPhone X and the Note 8.
My excitement for new phones has dwindles so much because the functionality really isn’t ground breaking and the access to these devices is almost criminal. Yet people are paying $1000 for a phone?
Think about what you can buy for $1000 dollars OR invest a $1000 dollars in. You do understand when they make the next phone the resale value of this one will fall through the basement and you will feel like IT just pulled you into the sewer. So am I upgrading? Nope. When I was forced to switch to a S7 Edge pretty much that was counted as my upgrade and I refuse to trade this in and get crapped on because the phone isn’t in perfect condition (I have a hairline scratch that I was told would stop me from getting my full previous Note 7 owner discount). I am really thinking about getting an old school flip phone and upping my tablet game for the future.
I can’t wait to see how many people can’t buy a good meal or how many panhandlers I see talking into the Note 8 or IPhone X on my next drive into the city.
So what do you think? Are you getting one of the latest generation phones or are you good just riding out this wave until the next big thing?
