In the 60s car's driver door armrests would erupt in cotton padding around the time most people traded in. The steering, OTOH, had hardly start to wear.

Solid, dense foam armrests on my Mustangs the vinyl would start to pull away from the backing on the seats before anything else looked bad.

I replaced my nearly four and a half year-old Samsung Galaxy S6 with a refurbished Samsung Galaxy S6 with a six-month warranty. So far, it works great, although the virtual keyboard likes to disappear while I am writing! (That happened nine times while I wrote this!)

That never happened with my Stratosphere 2!

I bought a replacement battery and daughterboard for $32 and will replace them today, but I have been using battery cases for perhaps a year. I may spend as much on those as I did on cables, but I watched a Linus Tech Tip video where he recommended Volta magnetic charging cables. They have interchangeable magnetic tips and I could use the same cable for my Android and my iPad, you just leave the tip in the device.

Well, the Volta is $27 on Amazon, plus $7 for shipping (unless you spend at least $60).

This one is $8.50, though: https://www.amazon.com/Smart-Cool-Co...rch&th=1&psc=1

I think I will give it a try!

I'd save those pennies for a newer phone. Get yourself something new enough that it has a USB-C connector. I expect that style of connecter to fair better.
