    No idea what its worth, work pays for it. Never bought a cellphone in my life.
    I mentioned vegetables once, but I think I got away with it...........

    Handed in my company phone on retirement. Use a <$300 Motorola MotoG2 bought through eBay and it does just fine. $19/month Vodafone prepay.

    I have a Galaxy S2(?) cost $200.00 as I recall. After I'd had it a week I wanted to throw it at the wall, still do periodically.

    On its own that info is a bit misleading. 'Cause I have two iPads and three iPods of various vintages, you'da thunk I'd have bought an iPhone, and I would have but I didn't want a plan, just prepay.

    Another reason I didn't want an expensive phone was that the last two went through the washing machine.

    Also had one for over 4 years. Those things are Samsung failures. Why? Because they were indestructible.

    Samsung customers weren't upgrading to newer phones because S2 would just keep on going. It fell out of my pocket at 50kph, dropped, thrown at, drowned in coffee etc... And it didn't crack the screen. Brilliant phone. But apps and Android OS eventually became too demanding for S2's hardware.


    Tl;dr
    Sturdy phone but became too darn slow!

    Got an iPhone from work (on to my third one in 15 months). If I were to need to buy my own phone I would find it very difficult to fork out $1200+, I'd probably get an old iphone second hand for $600 max.

    I buy second hand and keep a few years. Paid 350 for a under 12 month old xperia z5 compact last year. Waterproof and good size for bike jackets :-)

    so... no pressure to keep up with technology eh. fascinating.

    I bought my own ph, cost over $1000. Why? Because I can, because I wanted to, because I don't care what anyone thinks about how I spend my money.

    I'm on a company iphone and laptop but soon will be starting my own business so will need to buy my first phone in 6 years or so. Went to the mall the other day and nearly cried at the fact the base iphones and Samsungs are now 1200 rather than the 1k I was expecting.
    Massive piss take as I know the little Chinese boy that puts them together would barely see 10cents of that.

    Any suggestions on a good place to buy?

    Pretty much all shops sell them for the same price. Even if you buy it in 'merica you're only gonna save 1 or 2 hundred. Vodafone, Spark, 2Degrees offer them interest free with a 24month contract which works out alright.

    Might be easy to write that into the business as an ongoing cost too. I'm speak to Mr Accountant.

    Nothing to brag about but im amazed at how many OTHER people are obsessed with what you have.

    My phone cost a few dollars but its formeostly a mobile web and map browser to me, the phone function is secondary importance and have it on prepay plan.
    Been bloddy useful and still is....

    But hey oits ok to blow $100s a week on smokes or poiss your savings away against a wall.....

    Indeed. Even the S3 was a pretty good brick. I have an S4 that's been dropped a lot, but its in a Otterbox as I was expecting that (basically said to my boss it has to have a case). Supporting a client with S7s... fucken things just lose information from the exchange mailbox when they feel like it. Remove the account and re-add, everything is back. I definitely feel as they get more complicated more issues creep in and reliability heads south.

    I still like removable batteries (S4 is on it's 3rd), so I wouldn't mind an LG V20...
