    Maybe it's just me I guess, I tend to get bored of smartphones rather quickly and then I have to jump to another one :sweatsmile:

    Best answer ever. If it works, it works. I just don't understand why you should buy a new device every two years or so if the one you got is functional and still upto date?

    It is a proposal, not a lead.
    We really can answer "4 years?" in 2023 or later.

    Well I am using my phone for messaging (WhatsApp, Signal, Telegram), take some photos, listen to music (Spotify), Online banking, interacting with my health insurance (own app) and browsing (Brave),... so I am not a Games :D that is maybe why :D
    So I can easily use a device until EOL :)

    This is my use case:)
    I am currently using my phone till it reaches EOL-> so my Pixel 3 reached EOL in October :)

    Well... this proposal and the lead in camera segment.
    The S21 Ultra has the best camera setup in the Android World - and in even in some use cases compared to a n iPhone 12 Pro max

    Just the same as with girls ...
    One more reason to jump to a new hardware!

    Not if you buy Samsung, they leave out the charger. :rolleyes:

    So that should compensate:D

    (you'll end up buying a wireless charger, which is 60% - 70% efficient plus the rest like packaging transport etc but who cares)

    They wouln't do a compensation even if they leave out the phone itself!

    Oops, that may be the next future trend:
    Buy an empty box for thousand bucks.
    But "we are almost CO2 neutral".
