I have a Galaxy S4 Mini. I like smaller phones.

I just ordered a 6s. I decided against the OnePlus 2 mainly because I have a lot of important stuff stored on iCloud.

I'm currently using a Samsung Galaxy S5 that I hate because it's old and dumb

If only someone had warned you about Samsung phones.

Oddly, I don't think the brand of the phone actually affects its age at all.

You said "old and dumb". Being old by itself is not a valid reason to dislike something, so I responded to the "dumb" part.

I have had a Samsung D500 for the past 12 years or so. "Using" is a generous term, I occasionally use it as an alarm clock, and that's probably more often than I use it to call or even to text. I can't see how I would benefit from having a smartphone so I've never bothered to upgrade.

Well, being old doesn't actually change any of the things about the phone. It doesn't change how it looks, or what it can do, or how well it does it, or the build quality, or anything tangible. If you don't like it when it's old, then the only logical conclusion is that you also didn't like it when it was new.

It is possible that you simply like newer products more, but that isn't the same thing as hating the old one.

That isn't true. Things become outdated. You can like it when you first get it, but then like it less once it's been worn with age, or like it less once something better comes out.

How quickly it wears down with age could be a testament to its quality, but that doesn't mean someone didn't like it when it was new.

Then you don't like it because it's worn, which is correlated with but independent of it being old. "Being old" by itself is not the problem.

or like it less once something better comes out.

I mean, "hatred" isn't a constant. I can actually genuinely just dislike old things and my hatred levels rise from 0 to 100 as times goes on and the product becomes "old".
