    24-30 months. The last two phones have been upgrades. Given my old ones two my other half. The phones are still in excellent shape just older.

    I hope my OPO will go along for 5 years! That would be ideal! I don"t need the newest high tech phones anyway :p

    To be honest, if you care for your phone well and you're not one to worry about specs. You can actually get through 4 years with the same smartphone. My dad had the iPhone 3G when it came out at that thing is 6 years old. And, although I'll say quality control slipped a little with the iPhone 4/4S, the 3G is still running pretty smooth to this day with the latest update it could have gotten. So, if it wasn't for lack of updates, I'm sure most phones could run fairly smoothly for at least 4 years, companies just want your money so they make you think they'll break.

    TL:DR, treat your phone nicely and put a case on it, it should last at least 4 years, especially if you're constantly on it with updating it.
