My phone is currently living on the edge and unfortunately I do need one for work. The internals are showing due to damage to the screen, it doesn't respond to touches on the screen, the volume button will randomly go to max and the pulldown menu randomly triggers. Pixel 4a that's 3 years old.
Currently eyeing out the Samsung S23. I talked to customer support which gave me a $100 discount code but unfortunately it only lasts 1 week, i also get a 10% discount via their shop app so it's just shy under a 20% discount stacked together. Obviously any rational person would just wait till their phone dies but I don't want it dying out on the job, just wondering if i can expect the S23 base model to discount to at least 30% off.
They seem to be doing new sales every Friday till the end of the month and I can for sure make it till at least this Friday (every other day my phone seems to be getting a new issue).
Typically i'd buy a budget phone but even those now are massive, much prefer a compact phone. If only Sony released the ACE model internationally.
