    needs an upgrade

    Does it make sense in English to say a phone needs an upgrade to mean a person needs a newer phone?

    Re: needs an upgrade

    How about "He needs an upgrade on his phone"? Or does it mean that he needs a better service plan for his cell and has nothing to do with getting a better phone?

    He needs to upgrade his phone would work better for me, but speakers from other variants may have different ideas.
