>heavily delayed security
You don't really follow android news huh?
Samsung is one of the only OEMs that actually releases the monthly security updates, generally ~2 weeks after google, but they release EVERY single month, and have done since at least the S8 launch. My S8 has gotten a security update every month since launch. Same with the S9, Note8, S8+, S9+, etc.

The feature updates are ~8 months behind google, but that's not exactly a shock since samsung has followed this delayed release for ~6 years in a row now. Anyone buying samsung is well aware of how long it takes for android version updates, and they're not at all bothered by it because half the time the new update brings stock android features that Samsung already had built in for a year or longer.

iFag here. Yes. I have something called "Change" on my plan so every 12 months I can swap in my current/old phone for a new one without additional cost. The only downside is they reset the time remaining on my plan by doing so, but since I plan to use change in another 12 months anyway it doesn't matter…

>but they are so slow in pushing out the security patches to all of their phones
Almost entirely carrier dependent. They almost always have the updates out by the 15th of each month, it's on your carrier to actually do anything about it.

Though I wouldn't be shocked if certain regions unlocked versions get fucked over a bit.

Not a concern in the US, so idgaf particularly.

Dude and his wife come in for an upgrade on his device. Near the beginning he asks for help transferring his content and I ask him how many photos he has so I can pick the best method. Opens his gallery and there is a few dozen photos of his wife naked in the tub hold a newborn. They did a home birth and I saw her completely naked holding their baby. She was off looking at a new case for her phone. Guy looks at me and we just accept what happened and agreed not to speak of it again non verbally. Got to spend the next 40 minutes with a woman I've seen stark naked covered in semi-red bath water from her after birth.

The display is among the most important aspect of a phone...
"Super Retina Display" (MADE BY SAMSUNG)...it's really sad Apple has to trick people into thinking the display is something special by using buzzwords. The "Retina" display is made by Samsung and it's a very old and outdated OLED display. Samsung saves their high end displays, AMOLED and Super AMOLED, for their own Galaxy phones. It's for obvious reasons, Samsung wants to crush Apple like an ant in terms of quality. Anytime you're looking at an iPhone you're truly looking at a Samsung, an outdated one. Charging over $1,000 for this new iPhone is absolutely insane, especially for such grossly outdated technology.

This. Truth be told, besides 4chan threads and niche reddit communities, iPhone consumers do not really give a shit what Samsung or Pixel consumers think. There is a broad community of people infatuated with shitting on Apple because of what I suspect is some inferiority complex. The amount of Apple consumers doing this vice versa to Apple competitors is virtually negligent.

I speculate that this is because Apple consumers are actually out in the world achieving things and have the cash to show for it. How odd that Apple products are marketed for identity purposes, yet Android users are the ones emotionally invested in their phones.

If really want it and can afford it nobody is stopping you. As for me I am curious at which price point people will stop buying iPhones. Currently we are at 1150 in euro land.

Something similar happened with custom license plates over here. Once they raised the price to 2000 from 1000 60% of people stopped buying them.

So my guess is the iPhone it's max price without inflation adjusting would be around 1000 - 2000. But maybe I will be proven wrong we shall see.

Many Android applications refuse to install to the SD Card, although with root you can force some of them to install.

SD cards are also many times slower than standard EMMC, while newer phones like the GS8 have a newer version of EMMC which shit stomps SD cards even more.

If you need the storage, it is better to spend the extra money, because EMMC is must faster and far more reliable than any SD card money can buy.

>you're forced to buy a new one every year
You don't seem to understand that I WANT to buy a new one every two years. I get bored with it. Give me something new.

Why do you want a phone anyways?

To browse reddit on the company shitter, and so I always have a screen I can stare at to avoid talking to anyone.

No, because a house is something I can buy for life, pour my energy and passion into, and it feels good being settled into one place.

Jokes on you. This is our future because people are fucking retarded.
Car sales are already stagnating depending on market etc. and the future is MaaS aka mobility as a service with focus on leasing.
It will create a massive shitfest with e mobility as a service with disposable, state funded, explosive cars because numales and thots want their socialist utopia.

Thanks for reminding me zipCar is a thing. Those cars are all around campus and it's basically a subscription you pay for and in return you get to drive any of their cars around town.

I use a 600-700 EUR/USD phone (depending on country).
But it's not a slim piece of shit like like Ifag or Samsfag. A rugged phone with several cool sensors (even thought I rarely use them) that is pretty much indestructible.

For that kind of phone I'm ready to pay the price. All others "modens phones" are pretty much fagshits that are dead after 12 months.

It actually did survive me trowing it around at full power when I was drunk af.
