They were just saying it’s **** and just taking the piss out of it. Calling me a cheapskate and stuff. I told them how much it was then they all was laughing and I feel extremely self conscious about having a cheap phone and I can’t stop stressing about it everyday. I think it’s a Samsung A21S

If anything a cheaper phone is better because you don't lose £1000 if someone steals it or it breaks

2 things.
- I have a worse phone (A01) and it got a complement by a friend.
- Those people likely have £800 iPhones which they only use for social media and nothing else. Terrible value considering our £50 to £150 do the job well as it is.

Also, I had a Nokia brick and got made fun of, but I got along with the banter.

Just tell them you invest in more worthwhile things, Idk like clothes and stuff you care about. You can have money but doesn't mean you have class..

I’m really sorry. Some people are just annoying like that.

Perhaps a fancy phone case might help?
