I have Spectrum, it is not bad for internet. My HOA provides basic cable through them as well. I haven't had a land line in years.

I use Playstation Vue for TV. A lot of channels and you don't have to have a Playstation to use it. Between that and an HDTV antenna, I get pretty much every channel I need.

I agree with you. Charter is garbage.

I'm eventually going to try PlayStation Vue sometime next year. I've had DISH for many, many years. Just not worth it anymore. Unlike most, I don't watch any popular TV shows or movie channels. Ever. So getting the basic through PS Vue should be more than enough for me with sports and HD Antenna.

However, I am looking for a new phone. Finally. I've had this Android device for about 10 years now. It is so slow and awful I can't do anything.

Years ago, used to be cheap and easy to upgrade a phone. Not anymore. I need a new phone but reluctant to shell out the money. I have an iPhone 7 for work so very familiar with Apple and use it all the time. More than my regular phone. But to whip out the money and bite the bullet for a new one is costly.

I've got an LG V-20. It was the only phone I could find with a removable battery.

I know what you mean, but phones didn't used to be as big of a part of our lives as they are now either. And when you break it down even $1000 for a phone if you only keep it 24 months is what $40 a month? Most people pay much more than that for tv that they likely don't use nearly as much.

I'm still trying to decide if I want to upgrade my iPhone 4s for an iPhone 8s or an iPhone X.

For me personally I am gonna upgrade to the 8 plus (from a 6s plus) as it is basically The same phone with updated processors and cameras, the X is to "new", just like with a vehicle I prefer to let others be the unpaid "beta testers" for a redesign, and wait on the second or third year model once they have all the major kinks worked out.

That's one thing I was considering as well.

Then again, I probably will keep whatever I get for at least 5-6 years, so do I really want to buy a version that is already near outdated?
