Me too. I cannot understand how the average turnover rate of phones in Australia is something like 6-12 months! I loathe and detest changing phones ...I usually buy a new phone either when it breaks or the battery is finished. Currently I have Motorola Moto G8 Power, with 5000 mAh battery and is splash-proof. I got it for 150 € last Black Friday, it's the cheapest phone I have ever bought, great deal, -100 € for almost new model.
Like I said, I'll wait for the phone camera technology improvements to slow down to put more money into a phone camera. Makes no sense to me to upgrade phones often at this point, when you have to pay yourself sick to get the latest features which improve in a fast pace.
I basically always have at least my Think Thank Retrospective 5, PEN-F and a couple lenses with me. No problem for me to carry that.
When I say that I have the phone within reach 24/7, I'm not kidding. When I have a shower, I place it so that it overhangs the edge of the bathroom bench by about 1 centimetre so that I can both see it and reach it from floor level ...
Ask me how I know that this is important for me ... .
