[Discussion] [Poll] How Often Do You Upgrade Your Smartphone?

Hello Mi Fans,

Every year we get a whole bunch of new phones in the market. There's nothing wrong with that!

It's different now than it was mostly because it's not just flooding the market to flood the market. Not in every case, anyway. There are some instances where maybe there doesn't need to be that extra variant of a phone, but for the most part it is companies offering up handsets in just about every single price category there is. More options, and that's generally good!

This year was the first time that I let my my current phone to upgrade to a newer model. Usually I simply eat up the remaining cost, however small it might be, and then upgrade and sell the old phone. That wasn't really an option this year, so I just handed the old handset to one of my family member and purchased the newer one and went on my way.

This got me wondering: How often do you upgrade your phone these days? Is it every year, every two? Longer? What's the longest you've held onto a phone? Let me know!

Upgrading only after some for business required apps aren't working on my phones anymore (happened on BB as well as on Win Mobile), or no security updates are provided anymore. Or a mechanical failure causes the device to cease working (happened only once in 25 years).
