    I can’t remember if the last phone I got was my iPhone SE or iPhone 7. Either way, they both function well enough for me and I’m not paying $1000 or more for a phone.
    The sub 1000 dollar flagship days are just about over. 2018 and into 2019 is looking like Samsung, LG, Sony, Apple (are in their own category anyway), and many others are leaving the top of the line trend for premium price tags of slab devices that are not much more than the ones of the past. Maybe the secret is to slam as much hw and tech into them that they justify the dollar amount. I don't know.... I mean these things sell by the millions and cost a 1/3 of what they actually charge for them. Would think by that alone they are meeting their mark, but who knows. Over spending is the life nowadays of anyone.

    As long as $1000 phones can be had for $25/month people won't bat an eye. I guarantee you if financing through carriers didn't exist there wouldn't be so many.

    I understand what you are saying, but with no app ecosystem (that was promised), and the good apps that WERE there falling out of the app store as devs felt no need to maintain them any longer - I am not sure how you would classify this as 'use'.

    But you are right, I had to make a decision that was best for me and my needs. Android/Chrome it is...

    My point was, it was just really sad to dump that chunk of change to have the rug pulled out from underneath me and nothing to show for it...
    My post may have come off as snarky, but that wasn't my intention. I had several Windows Phones and loved them too, but unfortunately, Microsoft was never able to achieve sustainable marketshare, and thus eventually pulled the plug on the product. I'm just not sure, looking back, that there was any way for MS to ever get anywhere in the iOS / Android duopoly.

    Since having to move from my X3 (which I thought was one of the best phones I ever had, even if it was expensive) to a mid-range Android phone, I too also refuse to pay such high prices for a phone or mobile device.

    ...unless it's Andromeda.
