At one point I had 3 phones - the iPhone 8, the X and an Xperia X Compact but that was one too many. I had to decide what I was going to be using a phone for and eventually sold the Sony. I only really need one phone but having one as a backup makes sense; If I break or lose one it's not the end of the world. I normally get two phones a year but am cutting back as a result of spending too much money on phones, wasting it, really. So now I have the XS Max which I anticipate holding onto for at least two years as my daily driver. I also have an Honor 10 which, although not high-end Android, approaches it in its specs. I keep it beside my bed for reading with and listening to podcasts and music - everything else I do with the Max but I like to keep my toe in the water of android, too. I'm pleased that I got the number of my phones down to two and they're both excellent devices - the iPhone was 4 times the price of the Honor, £1249 compared with £330.
