Most of u just dont know anything about phone companies. They intentionally reduce the battery life of your phone Every updates so you can buy their new phones. Thats why i dont do update. It is a gimmick. Been using my phone for 2 years. Accidentally updated my phone. The battery sucks now!

AnonD-771260, 06 Jul 2020Not bad then. My Note9 battery lost 1/4 of capacity during 2 years.How can you tell that since android lacks built-in tools that monitor battery health?
Hi ....i use around 3 to 4 months as i use samsung, Iphone, OnePlus. Whosoever launch a new phone i try my best to purchase
Used to be around 6-8 months before I bought my first OnePlus. First one passed the three year mark and I gave it away becauseI needed a bigger screen for work apps. Never slowed down or caused any issues.
You get what you pay for , dont be misled by high spec cheap brands.
The pool option is so limiting...
I do upgrade no more than 2 years
But I use 2 phone...
So, I still keep the old one for another 2 year
I gave away my phone to friend or relative or my helper...
So, the phone lives on more than 4 years...
(And that's also my reason why I will not buy non 5G phone,
even though there is still no 5G in my country)

Come on now, not everything has to be this fantasy revolving around you where you're some super special target of a notorious hacker group. You could just as easily download an innocent-looking app that exploits the vulnerability, or download one of those "free" paid apks that I know most of you do.
Of course, the solution to that is to only download from the Play Store, and from trusted publishers.
928 lasted me more than 3 years, 950 died but 930 will last me till Duo comes out I guess
AnonD-762416, 06 Jul 2020Of course it did. Your absolutely, genuinely non-fictional Galaxy Note 10+, right?Wow wow....Mr.Salesman telling me again 💩
I owned a Note FE and S10 and I can tell you that the battery drained the percentage I mentioned after a year use.
Heck, even a high-end Xiaomi phone is more reliable than that. Once Mi 10/10 Pro price drops significantly then I'll be sure to buy one.
One of the reasons I like buying iPhones is that they age gracefully so I don’t need to upgrade often and thus save money in the long term and protect the environment, too. So I held on my iPhone 4 (my first ever smartphone) for 3 years and on my iPhone 5s for 5 years. Currently I am on iPhone 8 Plus for the third year since November 2017. I never had a problem with battery but I’m not a very heavy user and I never play games. Both iPhone 4 and 5s had small batteries anyway but being a light user never had to charge them during the day. Even today my 7 years old 5s which still has the original battery is good to browse the internet and watch YouTube non stop for at least 3 hours without the power mode. As for my iPhone 8 Plus after almost three years of use the battery health is at 88%. I normally charge my phone up to 80% and after a full day out I still have at lest 50% when I return home. One of the things I have noticed is how well iPhones preserve battery when the phone is in sleeping mode. My friend’s Samsung s10 for example will lose battery in sleeping mode faster than even my iPhone 5s.
Dometalican, 05 Jul 2020IP rating is definitely in case you're a klutz and drop your phone from time to time and ... moreIP rating is useless on most modern phones as water damage is not covered under warranty.
Besides the modern phones with glass sandwich design are are easily cracked on drops which renders all that IP rating useless.
People who want to swim with their phones, for whom IP Rating is a dealbreaker act like they are cousins of Aquaman or something.
Most phones flagship or budget come with some form of splash resistance which prevents against accidental drops in water.

The likelihood of such a thing happening is 0.00001%.
So lack of security patches don't affect the end user in the real world.
Ppl and several businesses used Intel chipsets for years without issues despite the Spectre & Meltdown vulnerabilities. As I said, unless a team of hackers specifically target you exploiting that security loophole, you are safe.
Ppl continue to fall for marketing gimmicks where they feel if they don't have the latest security patch, they are vulnerable or worse the phone becomes unusable after 2 years. These are the same people that can be hacked using a simple phising link and they are worried about vulnerabilities in the system that are less likely a threat.
If it wasn’t for the camera, I’d be happier to wait longer to change phone, I wish you could just swap out the camera

While Samsung phones losing 5-10%.
Samsung doesn't even have that fast of a charging brick.
They do weak for 45W rated performance.
I used to change my handsets every 1 and a half year, mostly because of the data plan, but then i tried something different, i notice the the phone were in pretty good condition and that, even of they do not have the most recent and fabulous versión of the OS, the were completely useful and usable, wich means that you could still take advantage of it, but resides that you maximiza your investment and reduce the human-electronic waste and contamination, because honestly, not all the time we need the fastest or the strongest, sometimes we just need the one that gets the thing done fairly well.
I use phones generally until they are obsolete or lost. I used to use a G6 for more than 2 years until I lost that and then bought a V50, though previously I swapped from G5 to V20 to G6 within a year

Every 4 or more years. Can't vote cuz captcha error on GSM app. :/
used to change them every 2 years but now they reached a maturity it really doesnt worth to change them faster than 3 years unless you don't know what to do with your money.
