no point buy new phones all the time.. a lot of functions not useful for daily life, especially in Singapore
Frankly speaking, did you guys max your last phone features before getting a new one? Or you want to show off that you got the latest phone etc n only use for call, games etc? I still using samsung s3 n now, at Berlin typing this msg using the phone. So, as long it's a smart phone, just use it till spoilt. Keep changing also useless. Heh heh!
Only Sony device mostly, haha!

Photography is no exception. We buy and sell camera gear, etc but if we think about it, most of the time, a good photo does not require the latest in technology to produce. Most of the beautiful pictures we see online can be created with DSLRs at least 5 years ago. Sometimes, a 20 year old film camera will do it too. But we still buy the newest models cos it feels good to use or simply to have them. By getting the latest, it's not to really show off. Well, maybe some do but generally, it's to keep up with the times.
People are also getting richer and money has become more expendable. In Singapore, definitely we have a lot of rich people around. Or even if they are not rich, they feel technology is part of their lives and it's worth it to use the money they worked for on gadgets. That's why nobody thinks much about buying and selling camera equipment at a loss after just a few months of use (or even not using!).
For me, every time I walked past the Apple store, I have been so tempted to buy the latest iPad. I've been doing that for more than a year!! But somehow, I refrained. Cos like you said, I haven't even fully explored my iPad 1, which till today is still functioning well. I don't even know WTH iCloud is and I don't know how to use it. The kids in public carry the latest gadgets that can put mine to shame.

My non biased explanation between iphone and android, since I have used both.
IPhone OS is a very simple no fuss system.users are those who just want to be able to use the OS out of box. No need to crack brains to navigate the phone. Everything is just there on the screen.
Android is for those who like to play and customize the phones. Like to explore and change some things to own's liking.
If you look at two persons' android phones, no two phones are the same. The screens, apps, the look are different, because both owners change the phone to each liking.
If u look at two iPhones, both are the same. Standard screen and navigation. Very idiot proof.
Now, I'm not saying which one is better. It's all depends on individual.
The reason why Apple is so successful is they sell lifestyle, not products. Every Apple product is integrated with one another. And the marketing campaign is all about lifestyle. The feel and look, the psychological impact on the user, all are targeted to make the user feel good and nice.
