Tbh, I do not understand why it is necessary to buy any new device this time.
The improvements on the hardware side are negligible, I doubt that anyone gets any advantage if the screen is 1k or 1,2k brightness.
Camera improvements are also more or less based on sw improvements the last years.
New devices also do not have the custom ROM support. Do not wanna live without pe or AdBlock anymore.
With your work, you keep my device on a 2022 flagship level.
