I suppose that this is the sort of forum where people like to compare what they do or what they have with what others have or do, and get a sense for general preferences and choices of the forum at large.

My current phone is a Nokia 3510, a wonderfully venerable antique; the model dates from 2002 and still works perfectly. As it happens, I work abroad a lot of the time, and, as I require a phone with a local number when I am at home, I inherited it from my mother, who has, bless her, a touch of dementia and therefore will no longer be in any position to use it.

Anyway, the phone dates from 2002, and I have been using it for the past two years. I must say that I get a real frisson of excitement when I note the contemptuous derision and barely suppressed shudder with which the cool, dead-eyed youngsters regard my antique Nokia.

Now, I have never used a smart phone in my life, and, for the moment, I have no real desire to acquire one.

Meanwhile, my computers date from 2013 and 2014. They are two MBAs, both CTOs, a 13" (2013) and an 11" (2014).

iPhone 6 is from release day.

Both computers are running well. No doubt, if I play with a newer machine I will likely find 100 flaws with my two others.

Plan on replacing the phone in a year, the laptop in about 4 years. Yeah, I really hang onto computers for a while My previous MBP made it over 5 years before it met an untimely death.

Just replaced my launch day iPhone 4 a few weeks ago with an iPhone 6.

My MacBook is from late 2008 and still going strong. Likely to replace it with next refresh.

Sadly, I'm one of those people that feels the need to upgrade devices every year or two. The phone is semi-justifiable given the degree of improvement of each iPhone on a 2 year basis. I think cellphones still have a much larger and more rapid degree of improvement year over year as opposed to regular computers. Upgrading laptops every two years has been pretty unnecessary.

I had an iPhone 3GS then 4S then Note 1 yet a few months ago fell back on an older LG flipphone I had a few months before the 3GS so it is a very years old.

My other system are from the last few months. I use a Windows 8.1 tablet as my man computer and tab pro as camera and reader and everything else. I go back and forth a lot.
