My phones tend to get retired when the battery no longer holds a good charge
That sounds awfully premature. Is that also your policy for laptops and such? I have laptops with batteries that are in such bad shape you can't even run from one power outlet to the next fast enough (and the laptops are so old it's not worth investing in a new battery - if you can even find them). Fact is, when I use one of my laptops, I'm always near a power outlet anyway...
I dunno - it's generally ten years or so before that happens: my current phone is a Moto G Series 1 and that came out in 2013 ...
It still works fine, holds a charge for between 18 hours and 18 days (depending on me remembering to turn off location services, mostly) and is probably good for quite a few more years, though it is running low on memory thanks to compulsory Google app updates ...

I have my laptop connected to my NAS through LAN, in my NAS there is all my music.
Using MusicBee to play it.
Headphones are connected to the laptop and to my cell phone using bluetooth.
Whenever a phone call enters (even if I'm listening music from MusicBee/laptop) headphones switch to the phone and I can speak with the caller.
Works same way when I start a call.
I understand that, to make it work, headphones must have the multipoint bluetooth option.
Useful for tax time as well. I had to submit a copy of my car's registration to the State of Colorado to claim the EV tax credit. Pulled the registration out of the car, snapped a picture of it, and used this app to grab it off my phone.
It's normal to have preferences, and to not want to see things that go outside those preferences, but there is more than one set of preferences, and there is so much oppressively divisive behaviour and talk in the West, these days, that the norm for communications is more and more becoming "I Hate [enter a group of people here]!"
IMO, there is nothing wrong with CP. It has 14,435,318 members (and counting), and they can all read the bits they want to read, and not read the bits they don't.
Kudos for changing your approach from "I Hate!" to "I'll just read the bits I want to read, and bugger the cr@p I'm not interested in". Being bigger than the hate talk is good for everyone (all 14,435,318 of us).
