There's also a significant number of people who can't hold on to a single device even for a year. These users represent 23.67% of the participants, while the smallest group, or the remaining 12.88%, aren't really into changing their hardware often, so they stay with them for more than 2 years.
Not really surprising results here, but it's definitely interesting to see that there isn't a single common time interval for changing phones among PhoneArena readers.
How often do you change your phone?
Less than a year
Every two years
More than two years

Due to my misreading I got the idea for a new poll: How often do you CHARGE your phone

All the major carriers (I think) allow users to upgrade every 4-6 months before their contract is up. So I think I was like some others, I wasn't sure what to answer. I upgrade every 18 months, but for the poll I checked off 2 years. It should have been written with time frames.

2 years plus for me. I have an i4 and I am completely satisfied with it. I usually upgrade when there are data speed bumps; hence, when AT&T goes LTE in my area, I will probably upgrade then to what ever is the latest greatest. ( My employer pays for my AT&T monthly bills - I prefer Verizon - but I prefer free more ;) ) Now that there are tablets, I see me upgrading tablets more than my phone ... so long as I can keep my phone in good condition and not lose it ;)
