Single Status Update
Upgrading to a new phone tonight. I know I'm going to hate it simply due to old man syndrome. Had the current one for 5 years, which is definitely a record.

What kinda phone you going to? I usually keep a phone 2-3 years max. $200-$300 Android phones usually are only given security updates for a couple years and only get maybe 1 OS upgrade if you're lucky.
I did have a Moto E ($120) for a year then upgraded to a Moto G ($200) and had it 2 years. Then I bought a refurb Google Pixel 2 that I thought I'd be able to use a couple years, but it was a lemon and had to return it. Then I went back to a Moto G for a year or so before getting this Nokia 4.2 2 years ago. It's on Android 10 and sadly last Security patch it got was 8 months ago.
I went from a Galaxy S7 to a Galaxy S20 FE.
I don't really worry about security update availability, because I don't install many apps, and don't go browsing unknown sites.
And yeah, I was heavily annoyed last night while in old man mode just due to all the notifications that started streaming in for all the apps I hadn't yet uninstalled or disabled. And of course all the needless UX changes that aren't needed. <shakes fist at cloud>
