    It's a great way as I get a new phone every year and out of pocket is normally around $150-$200.

    The first week I received my HTC EVO LTE I had to exchange it for another one because of antenna/software issues, it couldn't connect to 3G service. This was in the beginning of Sprint rolling out there 4G in some states. I had to wait a year and a half before 4G was finally available in my state, now two years later the phone is starting to act up not connecting to 4G or 3G. Took it to Sprint today I should get a replacement next week. I'm pretty much done with Sprint and HTC, T-Mobile here I come.

    Physically my phones last for years, for example my N9 is still like new and it was bought september 2011.
    I've always been a bit paranoid to handle my electronics with care, I once a week clean the dust with microfiber cloth off them so they also look good (my tiny bachelor apartment has projector with ~100" screen, PS3, Xbox360, WiiU, 5.0 audio equipment with piano white coating + Pioneer amp, computer with 27" Dell screen, Samsung ulrabook, 42" IPS-screen in bedroom, 3 cellphones etc.).
    I also have always considered the resell value so that's why I keep everything in good condition and beware of dropping them.

    I've got a non LTE phone on Tmobile. I can't wait to experience LTE. 4g is quick though. Gs3 does the job.

    Galaxy S 2. Got it in May of 2011, so 3 years. I'm convinced it is one of the best phones ever made. I never have had a single issue and since every update, the phone just got better and gave me no reason to get another phone. No other phone blew me out of the water. But the OPO is different. I like phones that are game changers. My phone before SG2 was the HTC HD2, which was completely revolutionary when it came out. It's funny how many people used to make fun of me for having a ridiculously large phone then. Now it seems small.

    Droid Incredible was my first smartphone, and I had it for two years. Since then, I had Samsung Galaxy S3, HTC Droid DNA, and Naxus 4, all less than a year and some just few months. It looks like Nxus 5, my current daily driver bought at the day of launch, will not make it past a year, either.

    Hopefully, I will be in it for along haul with OPO.
