How often do you upgrade your phone? [Poll of the Week]

New Android phones are constantly coming to market, and it can be tough deciding when you should upgrade. We want to know - how often do you upgrade your phone?

Published onJune 27, 2016

Last week’s poll summary: Out of more than 6,200 total votes, 49% of our readers told us they prefer a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. 37% of our readers voted for a front-mounted fingerprint sensor, while side-mounted fingerprint sensors came in last with 14% of the votes.

New Android phones come to market extremely often, all with bigger and better features than the last. Not only that, good smartphones are getting cheaper, too. Nowadays you can buy a flagship smartphone for well under $500, and even a great mid-range or low-end device for sub-$250.

Now more than ever, it’s easier than ever to upgrade to a new smartphone without breaking the bank.

Plus, most carriers have finally gotten away from the standard two-year contract system, meaning most customers aren’t necessarily “locked in” with the same phone for multiple years anymore. Buying a phone unlocked or through a payment plan is now becoming the norm, and people are upgrading their devices at a much more rapid rate.

So tell us – how often do you upgrade your phone? Do you upgrade every two years, or when a new phone comes out that interests you? Be sure cast your vote in the poll below, and if there’s something you need to add, feel free to speak up in the comment section. We look forward to hearing what you have to say!
