Stick to your smartphone instead of upgrading it
March 14 , 2014
It's easy to forget the value of our gadgets due to our convenient contracts with carriers but the new generation of Samsungs and iPhones haven't exactly improved a lot as compared to their predecessors.
Farhad Manjoo of the New York Times offered some suggestions regarding this matter: Smartphones have reached a peak of innovation, which means that the latest device won't be all that better from the one that you use right now. You could easily get your battery repaired in case it's fading on you and it's possible to do so even on an iPhone by using the right tools.
It may also be a good idea to buy a used device since an iPhone tends to lose half of its value after the first year so why not just wait until then?
