    2 years is an eternity in phone development. You'll never keep a phone that long if you're tech savvy.

    The only one I had for nearly two years was a Note 3. That was my first experience with a flagship and I got it through work when it first came out. I LOVED that phone. Then work decided they were switching to Iphone Only 😑

    Maybe if you have a couple phones you would. I may keep my V20 for a longer period

    Agreed. I think OP will be upgrading to the note in a couple months time haha more than 1 Note device has been purchased in the past which means he liked it enough to by again. Let's see what happens.

    Personally for me, if I buy the Galaxy S8 I would most likely keep it for 3 years 😃 I think Samsung will stick with this design for next year's model, maybe just a couple tweaks.

    I wonder what the longevity is on the S8 batteries

    The S6 Edge is the first I've kept for full two years in a long time...and it's getting seriously long in the tooth right now as I wait for my S8 to arrive.

    Once I get my hands on the Note8, I'll hang onto it for a year. That's max. As long as I am renting phones, no reason to go longer than that.

    I could probably keep the Pixel for 2 years, but I'll undoubtedly purchase both the Note 8 and the Pixel 2---and probably the new iPhone. It's a disorder that I've come to terms with.

    I was toying with the idea of having an iPhone as a backup phone just so I could really get to know that system. However is saying that, I have always loved Android and they will be my priority phone

    Yeah I personally can't have two phones because I know I will use one and the other will sit for long periods of time. I am fortunate enough that my gf has an iPhone and we have an iPad in the house so I get to see the iOS world some (and keep her stuff up to date software wise).

    Not even going to pretend that I'll keep it no longer than when the Note 8 comes out. Then I'll be back on the one a year train. I wouldn't be upgrading now if the Note 7 didn't get recalled.

    I never know how long a phone will last me - so far, the phone I've held the longest is the Droid Turbo. I've historically bought each phone I've had on launch day:

    Blackberry Storm - Nov 08
    Blackberry Storm 2 - Nov 09
    HTC Thunderbolt - Mar 11
    Samsung Galaxy S3 - May 12
    Droid Maxx - Aug 13
    Droid Turbo - Oct 14
    Galaxy S7 - Mar 16
    Galaxy S8 - Apr 17

    Who knows what will happen!

    When I bought the note 7 last year, my plan was to keep that phone until the wheels fell off. I had been on a 2 year upgrade schedule with all of my iPhones (4,5 and 6+). I am now at a point where I am buying these outright and I want to just use the damn thing as long as I can. I was really happy with the note 7 so if I am as happy with the S8+ then I will go for the long haul.

    Yep, that's exactly what would happen. I did that for about​ a year. It was a waste of money having 2 phones at the same time. I would rather jump phones every 6 months vs having 2 phones. Ideally, upgrading once a year is what I need to do and stop this non sense!

    I have two phones. One flagship and one cheap huawei with freedom pop data Sim in it. Keeping two flagships is a total waste of money to me.
