I'm not a wasteful person either.

I did have to upgrade the Amazon Firestick. It was a first generation firestick and no longer supported on the system. I think we are on the forth generation firestick.

I realized I needed to upgrade 2 electronic items this year. I replaced my Fitbit Charge 2 recently with a Charge 4. The 2 went all wonky; it calculated that I burned over 3 thousand calories for a 5k. Yeah, no. Something went awry with the heart rate piece. When I turned it off, the calories were more realistic. I was able to get a new one during a sale.

I also had an original Roku box for streaming in my master bedroom. It got to a point were HULU wouldn't work on it and Disney+ also didn't download when it became available. I use both of those channels regularly. A local big box store had a sale so I got a new one.

I only replace mine when they break down. I don’t need the latest and greatest. I do love my iPad.

I’m not fond enough of electronics to upgrade constantly. I’ll use them until they die!

"Or do you just keep upgrading because the newer models look so enticing?"

I know people who always have to have the latest and greatest Iphone, laptop or watch. And guess what, they are in DEBT and owe thousands on their credit cards.

I only replace electronics when they break or must upgrade a laptop when it can no longer run the latest operating system. I don't need the latest and greatest electronics.

I don't replace them often. My phone is quite wonky. Out of no where it will just start going -11111111111111111111111111111 I It also doesn't have much space for my YouTube videos. I have to upload a video to YouTube and private it. Then delete it off of my phone. So that I will have room for the next one. I could have gotten an iPhone, my phone carrier was having a special on them, but my current phone is paid for.

My tablet is used. My laptop is used. My PC is used. They are all in good working order. They came to me because someone got a new one. They work well so I am not going to replace them.

I do research and read reviews on the electronics before I purchase. Then I use them until they start to breakdown or until they have some feature I absolutely need (that rarely happens). This saves me money and aggravation

Personally, I will never purchase a Samsung phone or tablet again; their televisions are okay but their portable electronics suck. I had a Samsung cell phone and could never hear properly on it; I don't have hearing issue. My 3+ year old iPhone 6S is still clear as a bell. I got the tablet free when I got off my ex husband's cell plan. I got it at the same time as the Samsung phone. What's funny is the salesman said I would love it more than an iPhone. He was wrong but I couldn't afford an iPhone at the time.

You have a galaxy tab 3? I have a Tab S. It still works but it is getting wonky. At times some apps will shut down for no reason, but it doesn't happen very often.

I had to replace my mobile because I damaged the screen of my J6 very badly (long story). So my current phone is a A30s.

Rarely do I replace my electronics. They basically have to die or become beyond obsolete. I am still using a Samsung Galaxy 3 tablet that I have had for 6 years. I use an old cell phone that isn't in service any longer as an alarm clock. My current cell phone is an iPhone 6 that I have had for 3 years. They battery life isn't great but the phone still works.

You might wonder why. Well, as an adult, I have to put priorities on keeping a roof over my head, food on my plate, and my vehicle running. I work 3 jobs as my main job doesn't pay great. This pandemic has been hard because my 2 part time jobs have been not open; the theater is slowly opening up but there aren't many shifts available since they only have 2 of 3 stages open at 25% capacity.

Do you wait till the current ones break down?

Or do you just keep upgrading because the newer models look so enticing?
