I guess you both have a point: Reusing a device is more ethical than throwing 
a working phone in the trash. Buying a device that tries hard not to exploit 
workers in low-wage countries is more ethical than supporting a manufacturer 
that optimizes solely for its own profit.

Ethics is very much about reasoning about ambiguous problems. Therefore "more 
ethical" is rarely applicable to a set of choices.
