have we hit Peak Mobile Phone?
each year since 1999 when i got my first mobile, i'd get bored with a phone after about eight months, and four months after these "cravings" would manifest, i'd shell out for new hotness. but not this cycle: i've been using a Sony Xperia Z3 Compact for just over 1.5 years now (which pretty much makes it ancient, i guess). i admit i LOVE this phone for the size and ridiculous battery life, but besides that, there are better/faster options -- advanced shooters, higher-def screens, better digital audio, faster processors, phones with biometric security, etc. -- but i just can't get into them.
imo, these new features are extras that i don't need for messaging, video chatting, taking photos, posting to IG, writing emails, etc.
or to put it another way: i can't imagine paying $1000 for the S7E or HTC10 just to be able to do the exact same things i'm already doing.
