I'm thinking about a phone upgrade this year and the model I want is around $1,000. Scary thought to pay so much for a phone, but there's an interface that connects it to a monitor, mouse and keyboard creating a desktop environment. That way, you don't have to squint and pinch. That model is also available in a 5G version for $300 more. If I go for the 5G model, It will probably be the single most expensive device I own, exceeding the GPS drone I purchased a few years ago.
I'm not a power user and don't spend time streaming videos on my phone so the idea of 5G isn't a requirement.
