It seems to me to be consumer culture gone mad.
I had a Galaxy S2 which I got for nothing from my former employer as the contract had finished. So I took a contract with someone called The People's Operator which costs 15/month (of which 10% goes to a charity/good cause of my choice) for unlimited calls, texts and data.
The earphone socket got a bit wonky so I convinced myself to spend 400 on a new phone (Sony) because I imagined I was 3 generations behind the times and everything will be much better now. Actually, the differences between a 3 or 4 year old Android phone and a new one seem to me to be discernible only to geeks -ie, other than a less scratched and marginally slimmer case, and a non-wonky earphone socket, I can barely tell the difference.
My daughter has an i-phone 5 on a contract, which has been replaced twice in about 6 months and on which the charger seems to fail about once a month.
I've been in the equipment rental business myself and would never go near a rental contract for that reason: you are either locked in, paying over the odds, or both.
