How often do you buy a new smartphone? What are your reasons for buying a new smartphone?

I've usually only gotten a new one once the previous one becomes unusable (or close enough to it), but my previous phone was missing enough features (or, well, mostly just NFC) that I took the opportunity to get a replacement paid for by my workplace after

Tend to make it 2-3 years. I wanted to make my Pixel 2 XL last 3 years but one bodged battery replacement later...

Maybe every 4.5 years, when the current one can't keep its battery charged or stops working for some other reason. Although, last time I got a new phone it was because the previous one was stolen because I forgot it at work, and couldn't get it back.

never, i dislike them

My phone is three years old. I have no need for a new one since I do not use it to compare dick sizes with my peers.

I own an iPhone 6. And I'm only now thinking of getting an upgrade because its too old to download some apps now.

To be fast enough for the world.

I've only owned three smartphones. (The first one I didn't even ask for, but now I'm more or less hooked on them.) I don't remember my reason for buying the second one. Oh yeah, now I remember. I didn't buy it, somebody had left it at my mom's work and aft
