Because Cred Forums is full of fucking ricers, benchmarkers, and other non-productive shitstains that can't even fathom being too busy to give a fuck about having the latest gear or a WM theme that matches their anime desktop.

Conditioning creating the never satiated hunger to fill the void inside you to douse the pain for a few weeks with every new GoyToy.
There are people who are ready to go to a bank and ask for a loan so they could buy a new phone they can't afford.
God bless capitalism

Austin Gutierrez

Because they buy shitty phones. My aunt has a Zenphone with just 8GB of ROM and half is occupied by the system. Imagine installing and upgrading apps while keeping stupid videos for her 4 and 10 years old daughters

sell a phone that's a year old for 90% of its' initial value
add a tiny bit more to get the latest one
that's why
this, of course, doesn't apply if you have an android phone, which lose 30-50% of their value over the period of 6 months

They download every single social media app, which drains the battery in the background like hell. It becomes extremely laggy due to the "clean master" apps-like which they will use it 10 times per minute to delete the cache, which uses flash memory a lot. I'm retarded lol

Brandon King
Brandon King

Because until recently mobile technology was advancing pretty fast and what you could get for the same price in 2 years was a huge upgrade
Now it's because the irreplaceable batteries go to shit, they don't get updates anymore because the creators abandon it, there was some unknown phone killer bug that wasn't or even was known at the time of purchase etc
I used to have fairly high end smartphones after my first one was just basically still experimenting the android market by Samsung (Samsung Galaxy 5), others I had were Samsung Nexus, Nexus 5, LG G4
All lasted ~2 years before I would notice some fuckery going on like randomly restarting, battery life being terrible(very very terrible), not receiving notifications/messages and similar bullshit, although I never bought them at release, usually 0.5-1 year after they launch
Decided to go with a cheaper phone now, since they all seem to be good for 2 years anyway, bought a Xiaomi Mi A1, should have it tomorrow, heard that the battery life should be great

Hudson Nguyen

Well yeah. But I still see teens using iphone 5s and they complain about the slow animation and how unresponsive it feels after each update, so android isn't the only one affected by this. Phones are made to be deprecated so that companies can make more money duuh.

Jaxon Howard
Jaxon Howard

Because it was the norm 5-6 years ago, when 2 years actually introduced better screens and shit. They just kept upgrading instead of stopping when the phones kept being mostly the same. Only feature upgrade that I miss is waterproofing.

That's too quick, but I just bought a Xiaomi Mi A1 to replace my first-gen Moto G, as I was sick of how slow it was. Only 1GB of RAM isn't enough for even basic web browsing now. Firefox would just crash on more bloated pages.

Phone gets laggy as fuck, as Android uses more and more memory.
Apple even admits to doing it.
No reason the device shouldn't run well with 'light' versions of the software.
Yet, it does run like shit after 2 years, and there's nothing you can do about it.

Her battery would only last 5 hours, and the phone would shut off at 10-20% battery. Also, we downloaded a battery health app and it said the battery was somewhere around 40-60% health.

After we had the battery replaced (and screen too cause of a small crack), it could last over a day with a single charge and the phone ran much better.

Charles Rivera
Charles Rivera

She should get a second battery then to speed things up even more. She can easily swap the battery with a fresh charged one once it ran out of juice.

Jonathan Turner
Jonathan Turner

the thing is though user... the depleted battery can no longer provide the power to run the processor so the operating system throttles the cpu

what you could get for the same price in 2 years was a huge upgrade
This, so much. I've always bought low/mid-range phones because why the fuck buy a flagship when a mid-ranger is better in 6 months? It's been 0.5GB RAM/384MB storage then 1 GB RAM / 8 GB storage then 2 GB RAM / 16 GB storage and now 3 GB RAM / 32 GB storage when you just look at those things and cameras and everything else's improved a lot too.

It's simply been worth buying a new phone every year or every few years up to now. Progress seems to have stalled somewhat, though. A new phone used to be a huge upgrade. Now it's just same shit new wrapping.

Owen Perez
Owen Perez

dude, my battery holds 2 fucking days since forever that I had this phone.
At this point, it's almost unusable.
Even the 'call someone app' has to fucking shut down applications to fucking launch.
That's like a fucking 10s delay every time I want to dial a number, after I went to another app.
Once an app is launched, it's just fine.
I know a 'not enough memory system' when I see it.
The thing is, it was smooth as fuck when I bought it, and for a while
Then, system fucking updated, without my fucking approval.

Matthew Morales
Matthew Morales

I bought an iphone 5 6 months after it came out and upgraded 6 months ago, and then had to get a replacement upgrade because the initial upgrade had serious issues

Samuel Ramirez

The phone charge lasts over a day with how much she uses it, and she has a charger at work and at home. She probably hasn't gone below 60% charge in months.

This, my LG G3 has been good for a few years, but lately the SIM card seems to disconnect and requires a full reboot to re-recognize. So, despite being happy with it otherwise, I might have to get a new phone just because of that, if the issue gets worse

I'm still using my Galaxy S5 from 2014. I typically use my computers until they break or get too slow to run modern software. I used an iPhone 3G from 2008 to 2014 when I started to get worse and worse 2G service in bad areas. I used a ThinkPad R60 until 2012 when it began to choke on modern web browsers, then I got a ThinkPad X230 which I'm still using.

Liam Morgan

Because they've been successfully marketed to. Apple started the trend and now all companies have these people convinced they need to upgrade to the latest new phone each year. I'm only just now looking for an upgrade to my decrepit Galaxy S5.

People who take phones this seriously are fucking retarded sheep.

They’re not a revolution, they’re pocketable Facebook toys with software bases primarily composed of web apps and shovelware, with terrible software input that can barely function without dedicating half of your CPU cycles to auto-correction and predictive typing algorithms.

Nicholas Green

Christopher Perez
Christopher Perez

Isn't really bad if you buy Apple's product, because you can still cash back at least ~70% of it's value selling to someone, so it's kinda a cheap upgrade every year.
Of course, more expensive than keeping it for 2~5 years, but can be as cheap as $100 for a new one, every year, so you can enjoy new features, battery and also new warranty.
I think it as "new GPU every 2 years" thing, because you can still get at least half your money back, get new stuff and also new warranty. In the same way, it's more expensive than keeping it, but just picture it as maintenance cost.

finally get it fixed
"oh user! you finally upgraded your phone!"
Nope.

I love these marketers that try to get you on a "NEW AND AMAZING PLAN", where the main difference is you pay more and get a new phone. WHY would I do that if my phone still works just fine?

Charles Taylor
Charles Taylor

Not claiming otherwise. It's truly amazing how much you can now do with a phone. What people are pointing out is how empty and meaningless a life must be for that phone to be the best thing in it. I'm not saying it to annoy or bait him, I genuinely feel sorry for that user.

The microcontroller in your mom’s IoT dildo is turing-complete, too. And it probably benches at several VAX MIPS. Why aren’t you marveling at that? Because it’s really nothing special, we’ve had this tech for years, you just never cared about it until it got you on Facebook.

Smartphones are indeed “pocket computers” by any definition, and are more than capable of doing those things, but it doesn’t mean they’re good at it. They’re covenience devices, geared towards consumption more so than creation or productivity, and nothing will ever change that so long as their only methods of input remain confined to tiny 5” screens and thumb keyboards hooked in to an operating system engineered by an internet advertising agency to treat you like a fucking idiot.

And they’re shit terminals, by the way, take it from someone who uses theirs for that purpose.
