In this day and age, a phone upgrade is becoming more and more frequent. Where once we used to stay with the same device for as long as five years, today, with new models coming out every year, the temptation to upgrade often is bigger than ever before. Not a year has passed since the iPhone 4S came out, and there’s a new one out already. Samsung and HTC release new models pretty much every year, and even Nokia are not left behind. Each new smartphone is better, slicker and faster than the older model, and we’re left with something that feels old incredibly quickly after getting it. On the other hand, a new device costs money, a lot of money, not to talk about the environment, which suffers from the increasing rate of upgrades. So where do you stand? How often do you upgrade your phone?

Why do you choose to upgrade as often as you do? What do you think about upgrading often? Or upgrading seldom? Share your thoughts in the comments.
