Hello all, Is it a good idea that to buy a phone we should sell our old phone? Any advantages?
As someone who has had 2 phones (ever) and not disposed of either, what data/safety considerations are there when getting rid of a handset?
Other than removing the SIM card, lawl...
I have a Samsung one, S8+, and like it well enough with the massive exception of Bixby, the un-uninstallable 'helper' with a dedicated button that means it keeps opening up. Next time it might be enough to drive me to another brand, assuming I can find something bloatware free.
Hmm. I was reading that Samsung issues firmware to turn the button off and shut down Bixby? I'll see if I can't dig it out again.
Edit: Here you go - this is what I was reading earlier - https://www.androidcentral.com/how-completely-disable-bixby
I normally keep my old phone as a back up plan just in case
Certainly wouldn't sell your old one before getting a new one, but some people do indeed sell their old phones on cos it helps cover some of the cost
