9 out of 10 plan to stick with their current phone this holiday season38
The survey also discovered that 33% of smartphone owners are unhappy with the battery life achieved by their current device. Despite this response, there doesn't seem to be a mad rush to the stores planned for this holiday season. According to Puls, with the price of top shelf smart phones reaching higher and higher levels, users can save money by replacing a worn out battery with a brand new one instead of buying a whole new device. The home repair service adds that batteries start to die in 18 months to 24 months.
If the survey is right, all of the great Black Friday and holiday sales won't be enough to get consumers to update to a new handset. And even though the Apple iPhone X, LG V30, and Samsung Galaxy Note 8 are all desirable new handsets, Puls' survey says that nine out of ten are not interested in buying a new phone.
