Poll results: Are you always buying flagships, or are you hunting for the best value-for-money ratio?

long-lasting midrangers of late, you can save significantly, and still have a great handset in your pocket. Surprisingly enough, though (or maybe not, considering our audience), almost 40% of those who surveyed, answered that they are always replacing flagship with a flagship, perhaps regardless of the financial consequences. Considering the six-month upgrade cycle that a lot of major manufacturers are moving into, both camps might be tempted to replace handsets even more often now, and perhaps that's been the whole point. In any case, the industry has never been brimming with better phones for a decent price as it is now, so both approaches have their merit.It turns out that the majority of our 1829 respondents (60.69%), are diligently researching what each phone offers for its money, and are trying to score the best value-for-money ratio. Whether this means buying one of last year's flagships, whose 1080p displays and high-res camera now come at half-price, or one of those

Why not get a note and a mid range android instead of the iPhone?

Or what about having an iPhone around each time his Note freaks out, just to remind him that there are worse fates than being stuck with an Android phone. Of course, he could just opt for a Nokia WP, and get it right all the time. But then he wouldn't be able to download the gazillion apps that he'll never open more than once, and we can't have that, can we...? ;-)

You guys seem a little salty at the fact that he enjoys the best of the two best smartphone ecosystems instead of sitting on the sidelines with the barebones OS/ecosystem that is WP besides the amazing quality of the cameras in the Lumia series.
