And it's cranked up. When I'm making a call now ,I have use the speaker or Bluetooth to my car

Not sure what I'm going to get next. ..might get another Samsung lol. Maybe an S8
I have the S6 Edge and although for the most part I like the phone, I have had the charge port replaced in the first year and now it's giving me grief again. I have recently begun to have ads displayed on my phone at least a couple times a day.

I'm thinking of going back to the iPhone but the last one I had was replaced 2 times under warranty. I wish somoene would make a phone that would last the life of the lease agreement.

planned obsolescence - a marketing tactic first created by General Motors includes planning or designing a product with an artificially limited useful life so it will become obsolete or broken (unfashionable or no longer functional) after a certain period of time.

Apple frequently tells its investors they want to be world leader in using this strategy.

We got examples all over... stuff simply does not last as long as it used to (cheaper quality / shorter life) by design and decision. I still use a Chinese S4 I bought in China and when compared to the S4 sold in Canada the difference in feel is easy to spot. The S4 phone sold in China (same model and year) vastly better quality with more features than the Cdn version of same time.
