I don’t want to be pulled down into a cesspool of unnecessary consumerism and get a new device every year, just because I can.
Four years and counting with iPhone 3G. That’s not only a testament to the quality, it also inspires confidence that the product is manufactured to last.
The passing of time didn’t render the phone obsolete, it’s still a fine phone. Sluggish performance is to be expected, when the life cycle of smartphones these days hovers about 12 months or lesser.
With the abundance of new phones with tantalizing features wetting our appetite, there aren’t many out there who can resist the temptations to upgrade. It’s time to appreciate what we already have, evaluate its current value and put it into perspective.
