Well if you change a phone every 12 months and you get lucky then you might never need a warranty yeah.

But other people might need it :D

Nope. Do the math yourself. Buying new phone when the old one gets throttled (let me guess: the latter is NOT a warranty case) is still cheaper in the average than paying your privacy for it.

Even if a phone gets once broken (and this is a warranty case, which is the extremely rare one,) it’s still cheaper to buy the new one instead of overpaying for the warranty for the whole life. Otherwise all the insurance companies would get bankrupt.

The thing is the health insurance makes sense because one usually cannot afford the required surgery. You pay for your patience. The phone is not something one cannot afford. Do the math, it always helps to make decisions.

I wish I had your income.

Premium phones are north of 700€ right now, repairs don't usually cost as much. Also most people buy them with subscriptions so they aren't actually shelling the whole phone price up front.

Probably your math holds up with cheaper phones but still, regular people are not going to flash their own phones anytime soon so I feel this argument is a little pointless :-)

I wish I had your income.

If you were reading what I say, before throwing your arguments out, you might have noticed: I entered the thread with mentioning no-names.

Somewhat like this (I clicked the first item in DuckDuckGo search results.

Mine is slightly more expensive, for dual camera, 128G and 8 cores, but it’s still under $300.

Yes, I can afford this once when the phone gets broken by a warranty case (once per our life, actually, in average.)

This is the first link I found at DuckDuckGo that sells phones. BTW, I bought last four of my phones there.

Why would I show you anything?

You claimed that I was wrong. Now you admit that I was right because you misunderstood me. All is fine now. :-)

Do you need a warranty?

I needed one once and I was happy to have one. I'd like to be relatively sure that a device that costs me half a month's worth of money will theoretically be supported until I voluntarily replace it. Even CyanogenMod can't do that.

It does not save you a dime, but if you need it, continue feeding Apple and G.

I fail to understand your relatively rude tone now. Did I hurt you?

Now you admit that I was right because you misunderstood me.
I fail to understand your relatively rude tone now. Did I hurt you?

I fail to understand both how were you right and how my tone is rude.

how were you right

That no Android device has a warranty for officially supported OS updates even remotely as long as iPhones do.

how my tone is rude

I guessed so.

In the past 20 years I have only worked in companies that don't allow you to install any desktop apps (other than the one or two vendors all large corporates use but totally crippled). The current one I am contracting at has 200k people on over 70 jurisdictions and the desktop app is dead to them as unmanageable legacy they are trying to remove. Then there are all the startups and unicorns going web and mobile. So totally desktop is completely niche and has nothing to do in large corporate where it is banned and nothing to do with direct to consumer or mobile. If its massive in your ecology and seems like the universe then more power to you. Yet its been irrelevant for the corporations I have been in for 20 years and is irrelevant for the mobile first start ups.
