  • Everything is crazily different in my country. The price of an already used note 9 was much higher than a71 when I wanted to buy it. I still regret buying the mid-range one cuz it just can't do stuff well sometimes. Like I was trying to open a filter in instagram and it told it's not supported on your phone which is 8gb ram and android 11. But it worked quite well on note 8 which us 6gb ram and android 9. 🤷🏻‍♀️

I dunno what people are doing on todays flagship phones, but I consider myself someone who does more than your average on a phone, and the Note 8 still preforms wonderfully.

  • What's wrong with an older flagship? There are plenty of yesterday's models out there to be had! Quite a few people that have the money to always shell out on "the latest and greatest" often only keep these units for a year (2 at the most) before they're belly aching that it "isn't making it happen for them anymore" and that they HAVE to have whatever is out currently, or whatever will be out shortly... If I can find a good deal on a used handset that didn't get a whole lot of punishment, I'll slap a decent case and cover glass on it while loading my trusty SD inside, and I'm good to go for the next three or four years!

  • Concerning Batteries storage degradation: Nickel-metal-hydride can be stored for 3-5 years. The capacity drop that occurs during storage is partially reversible with priming. Nickel-cadmium stores well. The US Air Force was able to deploy NiCd batteries that had been in storage for 5 years with good recovered capacities after priming. It is believed that priming becomes necessary if the voltage drops below 1V/cell. Primary alkaline and lithium batteries can be stored for up to 10 years with only moderate capacity loss.
