What is a realistic amount of time to keep a smartphone before upgrading?
dvarian 11 weeks ago
Carriers use a 2 year contract to lock customers in each time they get a new device, although there are options with most carriers that allow you to upgrade before then. Of course, they will charge you something for it, and lock you into another 2 year contract. How long is a realistic amount of time to hang onto the same smartphone before it becomes so obsolete that you are pretty much forced to upgrade? Two years seems like an awfully long time, and I’ve never managed to make it.
