I guess it pays to be a late adopter. And maybe to not be in such a rush to "improve" one's product. I have a Samsung Galaxy Note 3, which I really love. I was thinking it might be time to upgrade, but now, not so much.

Thanks for the comment. Yes, there definitely are pro's and con's to being an early adopter of computing technology. One advantage, besides getting the newest features, includes improved security and privacy in OS (operating system software) updates and patches, since developers often stop supporting older OS versions. You've pointed out a key disadvantage: buying a lemon when a product has been rushed to market and isn't ready, isn't well designed, or isn't fully debugged.

There's a lot of truth to the old saying: never buy the first year of a new model car.
