Several years ago, we all wanted the hottest mobile phones available -- having the latest model made you instantly popular and cool. So you change models whenever you could and it didn't matter if the one you're using is still working fine.
Well, I've gotten older, wiser and more practical now. I've been using the same Motorola V3i for three years running and have promised myself to replace it only when it conks out.
It's quite sturdy though, as I don't know how many times I've dropped it and it's still working! Sometimes I wish it dies suddenly so I'll have an excuse to buy a new one. And WHY would I want a new one? I'm just fed up of it, that's all.
Being practical about purchases such as mobile phones, doesn't really spare me the gadget envy. Especially if there are so many cool models out at the moment.
Did you know that you can get awesome gadget reviews on YouTube? Just take a look at this one for the Nokia E75 (it's my dream phone of the moment). The other two videos are reviews for the LG KS 360 and the Nokia E71 -- yes, I'm lusting at phones with QWERTY pads. Tsk.
