When does it make sense to buy last year’s smartphone?

<p style="text-align: center"><a href="https://www.androidpolice.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/gs8-launch-signs.png" class=" no-style"><img class="alignnone size-hero-size wp-image-489093" src="https://www.androidpolice.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/gs8-launch-signs-728x409.png" alt="" width="668" height="375" /></a></p> <p><span style="color: #222222">Smartphone prices have been getting ridiculous. Granted, they've been high for the better part of forever, and to an extent, with good reason — these devices exist at the intersection between advanced performance and miniaturization that's always going to be expensive. But while we all got used to the idea of spending several hundred dollars on a new handset, we're starting to get into <a href="https://www.androidpolice.com/2017/09/15/samsung-galaxy-note-8-goes-sale-today-launch-deals/">the era of the $1000 smartphone</a>, and that's at least a psychological barrier that can be tough to work through.</span><div...

When the <a href="https://www.androidpolice.com/2015/09/22/youtube-red-might-be-the-new-name-for-music-key/">YouTube Red name first turned up</a>, everybody was rightfully skeptical, but it turned out to be the ultimate replacement for the "Music Key" subscription. In just the last few months, we've seen the names <a href="https://www.androidpolice.com/2017/09/22/youtube-v12-37-hints-new-subscription-tier-called-youtube-plus-apk-teardown/">Plus</a>, <a href="https://www.androidpolice.com/2018/02/08/youtube-music-v2-19-hints-new-premiere-subscription-service-apk-teardown/">Premiere</a>, and <a href="https://www.androidpolice.com/2018/04/25/youtube-remix-reportedly-set-replace-google-play-music/">Remix</a> pop up, but none have yet to evolve into a final name.<div class="clear"></div> <a href="https://www.androidpolice.com/2018/04/28/youtube-v13-16-may-preparing-red-rebrand-premium-urging-binge-watchers-take-break-apk-teardown/" class="read-more">Read More</a></p><p><a href='https://www.androidpolice.com/2018/04/28/youtube-v13-16-may-preparing-red-rebrand-premium-urging-binge-watchers-take-break-apk-teardown/'>YouTube v13.16 may be preparing “Red”...

While I raised my eyebrow the <a href="https://www.androidpolice.com/2016/07/22/libratone-one-click-review-sophisticated-styling-smooth-sounds-spiffy-straps/">first time I heard Jeff mention it</a>, I was quickly won over by its colorful and beautifully minimalist speakers.
