Something strange seems to have happened in our house recently. My wife has the HTC Desire S. She loves it, and she’s broken it more times than I can remember (insurance is a must). A few months ago she came to the end of her contract, but she’s not upgraded and she doesn’t want to.
Me, I’m the complete other end of the spectrum. I upgrade before the end of the contract and usually end up paying through the nose for it. However, I was a bit puzzled by the fact that she didn’t want the latest and greatest phone.
I’m happy with this, I know how it works, I like it.
…she tells me. I did try to argue with this, and I know she’s quite smitten with the iPhone so I showed her some of the iPhone deals that were available. She wasn’t interested. I figured she might be waiting for the new iPhone 5, but no – she said she would buy an iPhone 4S if she wanted to, but she didn’t – the Desire S suits her fine and she’s sticking with it.
Call me crazy, but I couldn’t let it lie. During a trip to a local shopping centre I showed her the new Galaxy SIII, the Sony Xperia handsets and the HTC One series. Nope.. they weren’t “like” her Desire S and she wanted to stick.
So, more than 4 months after the end of her contract she’s still got the Desire S and she’s more than happy with it. Sure, I’m puzzled, but I’m intrugued to know if you fall into this category too. Are you a “keeper” instead of an “upgrader” ?
