Buying a high-end mobile (spend 600 euros on average) and having a mobile for 3 years is of course interesting. But it is possible? Or does it not last for three years? In this article I will tell you my experience about it.
A high range can last for 3 years, perfectly
2 years ago I bought the Nexus 6P (specifically I did about October 2015). Right now, there is no doubt that it is still a great mobile, because at the time it was a top of the range that surprised with great camera, fingerprint sensor and updates for 2 years (up to Oreo) and support up to 3 years. Having updates for 3 years means that this will be the definitive life of the mobile. This does not mean that it can last 4 or 5 years, but at that time the experience will no longer be the same.
In my case, having bought a high range with innovative features 2 years ago, has already spent all that time and is still a great mobile, both, it is one of the few mobile phones on the market that have updated to the latest version of Android 8.0 Airing. Come on, it’s 2 years old and stays “new”, like the first day in this aspect.
Could I stand another year?
Perfectly . It is a high range and in a year will not change both the mobiles so that it starts to be out of phase. In a year will come Android 9.0 and will not update to this version anymore. At that time, it will be out of phase. From what we can say, that the Nexus 6P (or any high-end mobile) can have perfectly 3 years of life.
Obviously, every mobile is a world. In the case of Nexus, with Google updates it is easy to last 2 – 3 years and still be great. However, in other mobiles we started to have problems with the updates from its beginnings.
The updates keep alive the terminals. Keep this in mind before you buy your phone! Sometimes it is better to spend a little more and have a smartphone for more years, that you will have to shuffle yourself.
But yes, after 2 years of its market, the Nexus 6P can last a year more perfectly. 3 years without problem.
