Time to upgrade your cell phone? It seems like as soon as you buy a new phone, an even newer version comes out, making you regret the purchase you made. But there is a big difference between when you want to upgrade your cell phone and when you actually need to. Do you need the latest iPhone every year? No. But do you need a new phone right now? Maybe. Read below to learn more about the signs that tell you it is time to upgrade your cell phone.
Sure, owning one of the earliest versions of the iPhone can be a badge of pride, in a hipsterish sort of way. But if your phone is no longer supported and cannot upgrade its operating system, it is time to lay that phone to rest and upgrade to a phone that actually works. While you could keep holding out, eventually none of your apps will work. And isn’t that at least half the point of owning a cell phone?
Do you charge all night and still have to charge midday? If so, it is time to let your current phone go. Yes, you often can purchase replacement batteries, but they are often close to the cost of the phone itself, unless you are buying unofficial ones, and those can prove problematic.
Inside jokes are great and all, but if your phone has become one, it is probably time to let it go. Yes, your Razr may do its job when it comes to making calls and sending texts, but technology is quickly evolving beyond both, and without a smart phone, you are getting left behind.
This may not seem like such a big deal, but it has become one of the key signs that a smart phone is outdated. While “dumb” phones make themselves quite obvious, when a phone has a touch screen, it is harder to tell how outdated it is. Make your selfies easier on yourself and upgrade.
So, is it time to upgrade your cell phone?
