I'm rather tempted - my ex-contract Galaxy S5 is falling to pieces (through complete and utter neglect and abuse, it must be admitted) and there's no way that I'm either going to pay current Samsung prices or go back on contract.

I'm not a big user of the "smart" aspects of a 'phone and I really don't need a camera that outstrips Hubble for something that might occasionally be deployed as a hand-held scanner so the whole concept of paying more for a 'phone than a laptop is kind of ridiculous to me when 'phone calls, texts, an alarm clock, a browser and the ability to run a handful of apps are the only real requirements.

For me (and I suspect the majority of users) 'phones hit the "all you'll ever need" level a good while ago - does being the latest thing really offer any benefit other than being the latest thing? I suspect not. Old and Chinese could well be the way ahead!
Slogans aren't solutions.
