So how about you? How much did you spend since your first smartphone? And please mention the country you're from and if you bought new or used devices.

Around $2000 maybe. Been almost 4 years now. I switched to smartphones pretty late.

If I had to put a dollar figure on it; perhaps $2000 USD a year?

I used to switch models out quarterly and, more recently, that has become yearly. Come 2019, it will become every second year.

Mobile Technology has matured. We are at a saturation point worldwide. Innovations have become slim so I anticipate planned obsolesce, social status and gimmicks to drive new sales.

Oh well. A week later, Apple made it so my iPhone 4 could not install apps anymore, so I threw it out.

I hope you're joking

About 400 to 500 Euros in 4 or so terminals. Since i learn how to unlock, change roms and root i prefer to buy second hand phones with good support from the Comunity. Right now i will not pay more than +/-150 Euros for second hand flagship from the previous years.

200 euros (two phones). It just covers my every need. Desktop Computer is something I'm willing to invest much more.

It's like an addiction.. Always having to have a flagship! I see all these "flagship killers" coming out but I don't want a budget flagship. Rather the full fat flagship!


In total I have probably spent around £2000 on smartphones over 6 years.
