TOAST.Id rather use the 600-800. Not a fan of how "disposable" phones are...
All I do on my phone is browse internet, gps, and take the occasional picture. Never spent more than $150 on a phone and have never had a phone battery that doesn't last all day.
As long as it last me 3-4 years I'm okay paying the money. Just let my old iphone go. It was functional, but had some broken bits and pieces. As someone who likes to be pretty utilitarian and use it until I can't...it's pretty crazy how far phones have come in 4 years.
For me, if it's something I use every day it's worth it to spend some cash every now and then. Same thing with high thread count sheets or good shoes. Is it pricey? Sure. But is it nice that the things I use every day are nice? Absolutely.
If I use this new phone for another 4 years.. that's 160$ a year. Not too bad for something I used every day to take dog pics, do work shit, watch vids, navigate, do excersize tracking etc. everyday.
That being said the people who buy a new iPhone every year are animals and should be ostracized
