So you’re thinking about buying an expensive new phone and, presumably, want it to last as many years as possible. The good news is that major brands like Apple, Google, and Samsung support their smartphones with many years of software updates, taking the phone to five, perhaps even seven years of potential use before you decide to upgrade.

In that time, however, your phone might fall foul of an accident or two. A cracked screen need not be the end of the road, but it can be very expensive to set right. Even if you’re super careful, your phone’s well-looked-after battery might need a refresh after three or four years. Batteries, unfortunately, don’t last forever.
