Yes, he says he uses his money when purchasing all his phones. What I'm saying is that if it were a traditional upgrade, he'd be trading in his phones but he's paying for each phone and keeps many of his older phones that you will see him pull out at times for comparison.
Of course you realize he's "upgrading" so that he can review them as a Youtuber to review and to be able to recommend to the avg consumer... that it's not worth upgrading. That was my point.
Of course I realize why he's upgrading. That's not my point. Calling something "phone of the year", and then telling people not to upgrade to it is incredibly ironic, regardless of the reason why.
People who upgrade aren't upgrading because they need a new phone. No one "needs" a new phone, unless your current phone is virtually unusable. It's a want, and the very reason channels like his exist.
In contrast, even if he told you TO upgrade, you wouldn't do it unless you could afford it, and you wanted it.
But sure, go ahead and play with your shiny new toy for 2 hours while the rest of us watch. Lmao
