The difference is that old smartphones are a security risk, due to limited update lifecycles. Buyer beware.

And your "BRAND NEW $1,100 Smartphone" will become an old smartphone in two or three years time. Thus making it a "security risk that requires replacement."

The problem here is that cameras with "mature technology" can last ten years or more, but a smartphone with the latest and greatest technology in it has a very limited lifespan.

That was true in the early days of smartphones, but iPhones from the 6s model onward can expect to receive at least seven years of manufacturer's updates.

Samsung have announced they will no longer be supporting the galaxy 8and 8+, released 29 March 2017, that is four years ago.
