13 months old IPhone 12 Pro. Still a good phone but the battery isn’t as good as it used to be. Used to get 27 hours and 6 hours of Screen on time. Now I get 19 hours and 4.5 hours screen on time.
waiting for the 14 pro and the S23 in February before upgrading.
Id like to go back to Samsung but dont want a 6.5 inch massive phone. But the regular S22 battery life is tosh.

iPhone XS, October 2018 so creeping up to 4 years old. Will be replacing with a 14 Pro come October, I should imagine.

Pixel 4, out of contract next month (2 years) and can't see any reason to upgrade, so will drop from about £40/month down to a sim deal with Voxi for a tenner. Frankly, had my Pixel 2 not broken 2 years back, i'd likely still be using it, I loved that phone.

Moto G5. It released in 2017 but I bought it second hand 8 months ago for £38. My sim costs £4.99 per month for unlimited mins/unlimited texts/4Gb data.

So possibly 5 years old. I'll use it until it breaks like I always do. I never replace a phone that still works.

Samsung M30s. It's a budget phone but has everything I need including a 6000 mah battery. Maybe 2 years old? I tend to buy budget phones like this and then change them every 2 or 3 years. Frankly it's been a fantastic phone and I don't see a need to pay a lot for something "better". Flagship phones don't do much more than this and tend to have much worse battery life. I will admit the camera was hewn out of potato though.

Oneplus 9 Pro, 14 months old. I always wait 2 generations or 2 years to upgrade. By then the battery starts to show its age.

My Note 10+ is appreaching 3 years old now. Accubattery is reporting 95% battery health, although I do feel battery isn't lasting like it used to. Never done a factroy refresh on it so I am swaying towards doing that as it may help. Hoping to get another year out of it yet and will assess the situation then.

It still performs excellently, camera is great, it's plenty quick enough. I think next phone will be a touch smaller though.

HTC U11, coming up to 5 years old. Just cleaned out the charging port and now my charger plugs all the way in, no more charging hassle. Surprising how much crap was jammed in there, I estimate about 2mm of my cable wasnt "plugged".

Galaxy Z Fold 2, couldn't go back to a non-foldable now but skipped the Z Fold 3 and will most likely skip the Z Fold 4. I don't like the direction Samsung is going in with the Z Fold series e.g. smaller batteries and sticking with the narrow screen ratio.

Apparently the Z Fold 4 will get a wider front screen but not by much. Would much rather have an Oppo Find N kind of scree ratio.

Around 3-3.5 years (I think) for my iPhone XR. Does everything I want from it and have found no reason to want or need to upgrade it.

Mine's somewhere around 6 years old and heading towards 7 years, it's a Galaxy S7.
I've debated on upgrading it to something with more internal storage a few times as some of my heavy duty apps don't function properly when moved to external cards, but at the moment it still does the majority of what I need out of a smartphone.

Mate 20 Pro, over 3 years old. Looking to upgrade to a Samsung S22 Ultra later this year for the camera. Main camera is still outstanding, but the zoom is not so good. Battery in mine is still excellent and condition pristine.
