What you describe is the worst side of human behavior by people who cannot afford such behavior.
Try this, get the best model you can afford, after thoroughly researching the phone models spread the phone on contract be satisfied (Or YOU have chosen the wrong phone, plenny of info out there.) come contract renewal same thing over again.If you buy outright same thing exactly 2 years down the line swap if you can't afford to swap don't or just yhrow a few coins a week in a bucket. There's lots of competition in the phone market , plus millions of people at any given time waiting to buy or upgrade so the manufacturers keep churning out choices to attract the available trade, whatever we think doesn't matter and we are wrong, the head of these companies aren't sat reading this thread thier marketing/manufacturing strategy works , in the billions in apples case 140 billions+ worth if they would have only charged half as much for thier product that would mean they only had the princely sum of 60 ~80 billion , buf as for poor sony thier fans have no less money than anyone else's, its just that despite all the fan based chaos they cause in the rateings and comments, the public obviously find thier products inferior because they are voting elsewhere with thier wallets. Maybe sony should stick to hardware reselling they make good lenses etc.

prince JD, 17 Sep 2014Hii I'll b buying s5 in couple of day's...I saw on YouTube ....octa core version is 20% faster... morefor you who is better quad core 1,9 ghz+ 1,3 or quad core 2,5 801 procesor?
Buy samsung s5 2,5 and dont think anymore trust me. Is far better and it support 4g also.
I know what one of my problems is with Android after a chat with an unemployed mate..With Android ALL of the companies keep releasing models at a high rate and i want to change my phone to latest one or at least try it..I cannot afford this so i sell my Android (whichever company makes it) at a loss to try the next new kid on block...I do find this exciting and keeps enthusiasm going but at a high cost..
So to sum up,,if companies released less but better quality and designed Android the whole Android thing would be more appealing..I have tried Nexus 5 (brilliant fast device) and S3/S4/S5 but they are awful and slow especially camera.
Sony decided to release flagship every 6 months and now look at their losses,the person on the street needs time to save up for their next phone and Sony did this but the fans could not get the money in time to buy their next flagship..I have a not very well paid job and buy mainly second hand but now my money is low so how are less affluent folk going to keep buying brand new phones from these companies..
To prove my point Apple and Samsung release flagships yearly,oh and just so happens they are top 2 companies in Smartphones.

Hii I'll b buying s5 in couple of day's...I saw on YouTube ....octa core version is 20% faster then snapdragon....??
I am using Galaxy S5(SM-G900F) for almost one month. I have upgraded from Galaxy S3. I wish to share my user experience with you.
For me it’s a real up gradation from S3 to S5.
Some features I like most and feel they should be present in all high end mobile.
IP67 certification – Water and dust resistance really required for this type of costly device.
Display quality- Really display quality is different form other display. Put same photo or video in other mobile you will see the difference. Also outside legibility is very good. There will be no problem to read the screen outside with display brightness sate in auto, no need to put it in maximum.
Finger print scanner – I find very useful for me. We have to swipe finger to unlock. We can store different angel swiping. So only placing finger will not work. I feel this is more secured because the user only know the swipe angles.
Heart rate sensor & S health – Really useful for monitoring my health related things like walking, jugging etc.
Battery life – I find it last 25% more compare to my old S3. Though it got bigger screen.
Power saving mode with gray scale and ultra power saving mode really very helpful in some situation.
Download buster- I have tried experimentally few times. As I do not have unlimited data plan. It is absolutely super fast for downloading big size files.
IR remote control – Useful for using as single remote for all device.
Private mode – Similar type third party application people use but now it is installed and better than those third party application.
Touch sensitivity – By applying this I can use anything as s pen.
One handed operation, smart stay, light sensor, barometer, smart stay.
Some features which may be not that much useful or need to be improve.
Smart scroll, smart pause – As they detect user’s eye from front camera there are limitation of those application to work properly. For me smart stay is working very well but Smart scroll & smart pause are not working very well though all are based on same tech.
Air view, Air browse, direct call are working well but I don’t feel they are much essential. But we can deactivate them any time.
