    There are a lot of different devices that comes through my family's house so I've played with quite a few over the years. I normally keep my personal device for 3 years and then upgrade. But I've got a couple extra ones lying around that i use now and then for various things. These are previous devices from family members. Some have better cameras, others have better graphics for games or bigger screen for watching videos.

    I tend to have the opinion of, "if it still does what i need it to do, then ill keep it". I normally only replace a phone because of its battery becoming terrible.

    As a rule every 2 years unless something really takes my fancy. I don't even upgrade because of technological advancements most of the time, usually it's just because I'm bored

    I replace every year, keeping the superseded one as backup. The previous superseded one I give to some person who can't afford a premium device. Galaxy S2 till my current S7, now waiting for the S8. The S6 will then go to a good cause...

    Enough that I can't really use the word upgrade. I'd like to call it a lateral move. Lol. And the answer is, quite regularly.

    Mobile device junkie here.
    Six months before moving to a new daily driver for me.

    I'll need to slow down for now.
    Hoping the Mate 9 will be it for the rest of the year.
