Galaxy S3, so around 5 years. When the battery started giving in 2 years ago, I replaced it with a huge brick from Anker. It lasts 2 days minimum with heavy use and up to 4 days mostly idling. So far I haven't seen anything in newer phones that would justify the costly upgrade as long as this one works.

I recently upgraded from a Galaxy S6 to a Galaxy S8+. I usually upgrade every two years, and usually with a new contract, although I bought my current phone outright.

I still have my S6 but the battery expanded to the point where the back and front of the phone are pulling away. Not sure if it's worth getting repaired.

Still on my 1st smartphone, galaxy alpha bought it early 2015. Thinking about new for a while now, but there is nothing in such size or specifications.

The only thing that really sucks is its battery, shame I didn't act fast enough and bought 2500mah extended kit. Ok it still has 4-5hrs ost, but i want moooar


Maybe custom rom lineage 14 will do some magic, but I'll wait a bit until it gets more stable, would be nice to have at least Marshmallow 6, not this ****ty Lollipop 5.

Got two phones, one's a backup.....main phone is a pretty new (bought about a month back) LG G6 (64GB storage, 4GB RAM and HiFi Quad DAC). My backup phone is one I'd gotten about 17 months ago, it's a Sony Z5 Premium, sent for repair while it was still under warranty (microphone FUBAR'ed) and it's been going strong since.

LG G2 - 4 years old, absolute beast of a phone. Never had anything break on it. I'm running the latest Android 7.1.2 Release 8 with the May 5th security patch and Google Assistant, what more can I really want? Looking to upgrade to the new OnePlus which should hopefully last me a few more years, I just really want a bigger screen than 5.2" and longer battery life; a better night camera would be great too.

I'm on a Panasonic T44, after my Lumia made me pull my ears out. Its funny how sturdy this thing is, has fallen off / somersaulted on rocks while in the field and still is not giving up.
I'm certain no one has even heard of this model, let alone see or own it xD.
I'll be dropping this while on my bike trip if i get bored, but till then, this will do

Currently have the Mate 9 which replace the S7E, S7E was great with 6.0.1 but Nougat update made it much worse, also Samsung phones do lag, even a lot when compared to stock android or close to stock like Mate.

So far i don't see any phone beating the mate 9 in battery life, it's 5.9 screen packed with 4000mah batt, kirin 960 and nice optimization, leads to the best android XP i have ever had.

Been using a Lumia 950XL for 8-ish months now. Got it new and very cheap concidering it's "real" price at the purchase time, paid 250e for a ~600e phone.
How's everyone with a 5.7 inch display managing to keep their phone in their pockets? I have no jeans that have pockets deep enough for this phone

On Apple forums:

Quote:
To find the manufacturing date of your iPhone go to Settings>General>About and scroll down to your serial number. Enter it into the Serial Number Search box on

www.appleserialnumberinfo.com/Desktop/index.php

I have double checked it with my iPhone and it was correct.

The other way to check is to look at the serial number. The third digit refers to the year

7=2007
8-2008
9=2009
0=2010
1=2011

The fourth and fifth digits refer to the week that year the iPhone was manufactured.

EXAMPLE

for example 95104W8KL3T would mean that the iPhone was produced in the fourth week of 2011. So January 2011.

...Wait, so in the example you gave the fourth digit would be 0..right? Or are you counting the fourth digit from backwards?

Mines just 5.1" but I rarely keep it in my trouser pocket, I generally wear a jacket with an inside pocket which would easily hold a 5.7"

Only time it goes in my jeans pocket is if it's far too hot for a jacket, but I always have other stuff like a big bunch of keys and bottle of water etc, so always try to take a jacket out with me
