Now, I wouldn't be surprised if other Galaxy S fans are pissed off as I'm typing this!
I love Samsung Galaxy S phones, but the 3-year limit of updates, is making me stressed out! I can't keep putting up with this.

Meanwhile in the walled garden, the 9 year old iPhone 5s is still getting [albeit not-so-frequent] security patches.

On topic: I started using a second-hand and beaten up iPhone X for a few months now. So far it's only proven that these things are nice to look at from afar, but mostly useless to own. I still keep a cheap Samsung phone around for music because it has a 3.5mm jack, the bare minimum for a bloody media player device!
Can't use the damned thing as a portable storage. Can't use any peripherals with it (because apparently, universal standards must be enforced by regulation :shadedshu:). Can't run emulators on it. Can't even run my own software on it because I haven't sold half my organs for a Mac that is even more useless (to me).
On the plus side, my screen-time has dropped significantly since I started using it. :ohwell:

It is really a pity. Great hardware (and some pretty good software design) wasted on this thing. Here's to hoping the Open App/Digital Market acts turn this thing into something more useful. Until then, I'll probably start looking for replacement parts for my broken Nokia 7 Plus (and hope HMD is still pushing patches for it).

My Samsung phone came with 4 years OS updates and 5 years monthly security updates, not bi-monthly, literally every month I get the security update. It's great. its a 2022 model samsung. i plan to keep it for all 5 years too, as I am not much of a phone guy. so it should be just fine for my uses, the montly security updates for 5 years is main thing for me. :rockout:

Well, I got another update today. Don't know if that will be the last one or not. For me, they seem to come at like the last minute! They seem to delay them for a month.

You can find the phone list here: https://security.samsungmobile.com/workScope.smsb
You'll also have 4 OS updates, and 5 years of security updates for a 2021/22 select models: https://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_pl...es_for_2021_and_2022_flagships-news-53070.php

On my S20 the battery drain is starting to take its toll, I've been using it more frequently for work now: Lots of emails and calls during work hours. The battery will last a day, but it will definitely need a charge at the end of the day. I've been scoping the new iPhone 14 Pro because I'd like to try new software because I've been using Android based phones since they came out. Reading the review for the 14 Pro, the battery life is mediocre at best for the price and the year of the release, Pro Max however has much better battery life, but I don't really like the increased size (always liked more compact phones), however I am aware the size of the phone is also a limitation to the battery size. To make things worse I recently bought a Galaxy Watch4 Classic that apparently isn't connectable to iOS anymore, and that's due to new WatchOS that was developed together by Google and Samsung. There were no such limitations for the Tizen OS that was featured on the Watch3 (hint: was developed by Samsung alone). Guess I'll wait for the S23 lineup after all as I'm hoping that Snapdragon 8 Gen2 will have increased efficiency thus increasing battery life, but I think it won't do much. I'll have more options to consider after S23 lineup launches.

Good! Because my sister was like, "No! You're not getting another phone!" I can understand, especially when it's only been 3 years!

She's got the right idea. It is extremely wasteful to replace a phone every year or two. No one should be changing phones on a whim like a lot of people do.

Not judging you with my above statement. That was a thought just throw out there..

Time for a post about my previous daily driver.

So from 2019 until 2021, my daily driver was an LG V40. Pretty good phone; with flagship specs (Snapdragon 845, 6GB memory), a headphone jack, and a microSD slot.

In mid-2021, the fingerprint scanner stopped working. Taking it out of its case, I saw that the back cover was popping off. The battery had expanded.



Not a problem, I'll just pick up a new battery on iFixit and replace it. That was until I tried to remove the old battery. While prying it out (it was held down with way too much adhesive), I just barely nicked the back of the display, and...



...the sadness began. A magenta line appeared on the screen and a patch of dead pixels appeared where I nicked it. I ended up getting my hands on another V40 thanks to TPU being such an incredible community, and that held me over until I could get my current daily driver, a Google Pixel 5a.
:lovetpu:

Unfortunately, recently the replacement V40's battery also expanded and met a similar fate when I tried to replace it, though that time I tried using 91% isopropanol to remove the battery. That worked really well, but I guess I got it in places it shouldn't have gone, and the screen died shortly after I reassembled it (something on the lower portion gets extremely hot, probably the driver board).

Fast forward to a few days ago, and I decided to try and get my original V40 working again. Tore it apart, put the iFixit battery in, and...



...the screen has gotten much worse. So sad.

So I popped on eBay and found a replacement screen for only $50. It arrived today.



It's in absolutely fantastic condition, with basically no scratches.

My repair journey begins; I'll need to transfer the motherboard, charging port, vibrator, front camera, headphone jack, and earpiece to this new frame. It thankfully included all of the buttons and the heat pipe, so I don't need to transfer those.



Installed the vibrator, charging port, and headphone jack from the replacement phone and the motherboard from the original phone. I later realized I forgot to screw in the headphone jack, but it doesn't seem to affect anything.



Next was the iFixit battery and the front camera. I didn't bother adhering the battery in place because I'd like to be able to replace it if necessary. The wireless charging coil will hold it in place anyway.

At this point, I hadn't removed the earpiece from either phone, so this one no longer has one. Later, I was able to remove the earpiece from my original phone, so I'll probably install that at some point in the future. I tried to also remove it from the replacement phone, but tore the cable.



Finally, the wireless charging coil and speaker assembly go in and then a bunch of small Philips screws go in. Thankfully, they're all exactly the same size.

Moment of truth, I plug it in and hold the power button...



...and I didn't break anything! I stuck the back cover on and put it into one of the cases I got with the replacement phone.



It's basically good as new now (though the fingerprint scanner completely stopped working at some point; maybe a software issue). As for the replacement phone, I'll likely try to repair it at some point. Its motherboard still works, and I have enough parts from the two phones (minus an earpiece) to fully rebuild it. I just need another new screen.

I have no plans to part with either phone. I also skipped some repair practices because I repaired this phone for myself, and I'd like to be able to easily take it apart again if I need to. Sure, it isn't water resistant anymore, but I don't intend for this phone to ever leave my house.

Made the same mistake with my 7 plus, trying to open it to get to the infamously poor quality USB port.
Well, not "the same." I didn't just nick the display, I drove the prying pick halfway through the screen, and it was completely ruined. :|

Upgrade! I really can't recommend the Pixel 3 XL, it can't survive being smashed by a car door. :laugh:

J/K of course. But I did finally decide to upgrade to a Pixel 6 - and it seems like Cyberpunk. Stunning graphics and plenty of launch day bugs that are now fixed.

What's the point of having a UHD screen if you have to keep it at 5% brightness to save some battery life?
Same with the SoC. Why have a 3 GHz CPU with the most modern GPU when any basic Chinese chip can run Messenger and Gmail just as nicely?

Or am I getting old? :roll:
I'm not sure how UHD screen and brightness relate, but ~5% brightness is all i need for my everyday use on my Galaxy S20 FE 5G, yet it's useful to be able to crank it up to 100% when outside under the sun.

Oh great. Now I finally got a crack in the front glass, doesn't disturb though but I guess it's finally time to upgrade.

An iPhone SE 2020 looks like a solid choice.

imo

if you have your eye on the SE2020, i would rather go for the iphone 11. for a simple but very plausible reason:
the battery!
SE 2020 1812mAh
iPhone 11 3110mAh ~ 20 hours talking time

30% more battery power for a little more money but the devices are only 6 months apart in release date.

30% more battery power for a little more money but the devices are only 6 months apart in release date.

The SE from Swappie is about 250EUR. 11 from there is about 400EUR. Too big difference.
