    People are dying cause of starvation. And what do people do? They rather pay for this crap then pay for a plate of food for the poor.
    Shame of yourselves people. Mostly of you are white since the majority of colored people isn't stupid paying for shit.

    Right now, my favorite phones ever are my Pixel 3 and Essential Phone. The ones I'm charging at this moment. That could change again if I get a Motorola Razr and Microsoft Surface Duo.

    I'm trying to think about a device I still use after 10 years? There are none. My oldest phone is a Xiaomi Mi 3 from 2014 and I rarely use it. It still works pretty well for its age.

    My LG G5 is over 2-years-old. I can see myself using that after maybe 5 years because it does have a removable battery and headphone jack but the batteries would still be degraded.

    I already replaced the yellow OEM for Chinese 3200 mAh and they still don't last as long as my Pixel 3 and Essential Phone. I don't like sealed batteries but they tend to last long from my own personal experience.

    If there is one device I could still be using after 10 years, it would be my MacBook Air I got in 2016. The last to have USB-A, MagSafe, SD card slot, and glowing Apple logo. I rarely use it unless to download stuff.

    Like people, all tech gets old and die. I don't even keep cars for more than 5 years. My favorite gadgets will always be the latest because it's newer and more capable. I don't let nostalgia blind me.
