Buying Smartphones in Venezuela
Arol Wright, writing for xda-developers.com:
Phones have become essential tools, and in a country where you can’t really afford to upgrade your phone every two years, you’ll find yourself squeezing out the full capabilities of whatever phone you’re currently using for as long as possible. Often, this requires switching to a custom ROM like LineageOS in order to extend the lifespan of a device, which is exactly what a big number of Venezuelans are doing.
Sad read, but interesting to hear about geekery always finding a way.
