I hope this question doesn't come of snarky, that's definitely not my intent. Until recently I always had a fairly nice phone. That is until my LG G3 started having issues with almost a year to go before I'm eligible for an upgrade. What I decided to do was buy a cheap ZTE Max 2 hoping to get me through the interim. I totally realize that this is not as powerful a phone as my G3, but at about 1/6th the price it got me thinking. What types of things would I need to be doing before I really noticed a difference in performance? My geeky "want the cool tech" side of me is at war with the Scottish heritage "don't spend a dime you don't have to" side of me and I'm wondering when I am eligible if I should go back to the latest and greatest or is this route good enough. Especially since I could upgrade much more often and still save money.
