Not even "rich SOB", have many cell phones. Three Android devices, a featurephone, and a LTE modem, all with GPS receivers.
It's worth noting that device ages are:
- 2 years (Samsung Galaxy S4 LTE [SGH-M919])
- 3 years (Samsung Galaxy Exhilarate [SGH-I577])
- 4 years (Samsung Strive [SGH-A687])
- 4.5 years (LG Adrenaline [AD600])
- 6.5 years (T-Mobile G1 [DREA100]).
I keep my old devices. No need to toss them, especially when you're poorer than shit - your backup strategy extends to equipment.
