How much did you spend for smartphones ?


Sep 10, 2018
I think I have spent about 2000$ until now, but I must have the flagships in my pocket.
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.

These are the phones which I can remember right now, I'm sure I forgot some as the ones I didn't like I gave to one of my 4 brothers soon after purchasing them.
The prices are what I paid for them, roughly estimated when calculating the exchange rate from NOK to USD off the top.

Total price comes down to just over 18500 USD.

I've only ever had new devices in the USA. However, with the Sprint carrier, they have that lease program where I never truly own the phone. It's just an extra payment a month, usually $30-$40 USD extra a month. And within a year I can upgrade to a new device. I DO have the choice to pay it off and own it, but I kind of like being able to upgrade constantly at the end of the year. If I paid full price for each phone I've been there, oh boy. It would have to be over $3K USD! :crying:

I don't remember exactly. About 500USD for 4 smartphones :))

I was just wondering how much I payed for smartphones (without of any carrier costs) in my live, so I did the maths and found out that I spent about 1900 € for new smartphones in the past 7 years. About 0.76 €/day.

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.
