    Welp, I guess I need to start removing some friends off of Facebook and blocking out my windows. Don't want them to force me to buy something expensive.

    The video is so right I especially don't see what the heck is up with people's obsession with GeekBench scores on a phone. I buy a phone to use Whatsapp to cha with my family/friends, take a few photos every one in a while and make calls. I don't need a super fast CPU to benchmark or edit videos on my phone. I'd never even wanna play a game on my phone I have no time for this BS small screen gaming. If I wanna game, it's on my taptop or I won't do it

    Agreed. I use my phone for stuff, not gaming, not benchmarking just stuff. No need for a super powerful processor etc for the everyday stuff.

    Tablets are awesome because reading magazines and books on any sized smart phone is a terrible expereince. I even had reading news headlines on my iPhone. Sit down in the evenings with my ipad and read away. Different tools for different jobs. I am invested into the apple mobile ecosystem, I think at this time it has the best all round setup. The ipad, iphone and watch all work great together, and they have decent integration with windows 10 which is a nice feature now thanks to dell.

    I understand the argument against paying full price for flagships each year (especially with the rise of midrangers) but to play devil's advocate, there are people who use their phone at least 3 hours a day so for them, paying a premium on what could be considered a "new coat of paint" is worth it to them. Especially since it's practically a (whether they realize it or not) big part of a their life.

    Hell no, I use my phone more than that and I like the familiar face of it for years, love it in fact, I miss my old phones when I change them out every 3-5 years. I still gottem here and use'em on Wifi from time to time.

    Screw wasting money, wipe the damn phone off - clean it and polish it up, and keep the money in your pocket. :D

    While I’m not really a big fan of expensive phones, idk if I’d say that it’s a waste of money for everyone. As jedi commented, those who value the phone enough to justify the purchase price aren’t “wasting” their money any more than someone “wasting” their money buying expensive versions of other things, even if that value might be partly/fully subjective.
