A smartphone upgrade from your current device could cost you up to £150 in total, according to a new report.
The study from mobile phone research company Rotoworld found that a smartphone upgrade is only worthwhile if you’re in the top 10% of users on a smartphone plan, which is usually the case for most of the country.
You can expect to pay £99 for a new smartphone, which would cost you £80 for a phone upgrade in your own household, Rotoweworld said.
And if you have a smartphone on the lowest-priced plan and plan to use it a lot, the cost could be even lower.
However, the report said that if you were on a higher-price plan and only plan to keep it on, the upgrade would be worth it if you only use the phone for 10 hours a week.
For example, if you use it for 5 hours a day, you could pay £60 to get the phone up to 10 hours of usage a week and £80 a year for the device.
Rotowworld said that even though most people are in the middle, the majority of users would still be able to make a substantial upgrade.
The study also said that people who upgrade their smartphones for a lower price are more likely to spend the money on accessories and accessories are more popular, so it could be worth looking at those options as well.
There are plenty of other things you can do to make the most of your phone upgrade.
You can buy the latest Android phones and tablets, buy a new charger, and even pay a monthly subscription to a premium streaming service.
