    I had my Samsung S4 for about 3.5 years. I replaced the battery 3 times and rooted it and ran various releases of cyanogenmod after switching from rooted stock 4.4.

    I had replaced the ear speaker and power button before I decided it had gotten too slow to use as a "daily driver" for work.

    If the battery on the 5T holds out 2 years, I probably will replace the battery and keep for another 2 years until the hardware starts to fail.

    Looking for 4 years!

    2-3 years. But if the OP6T comes out (approx. in one year or so), with all the best from OP5 camera aso - then I might switch earlier. Around x-mas in 2018?!
    My last fon I used for 3 years (Note4), it was capable for more, but the bloatware drives me crazy...all the crap from Google AND Samsung...and I was touchwized seriously...
    On OP5T everything is snappy and clean, so maybe I will use it as 2nd fon, when I buy a new one (of course again OP).

    I don't know about the 5T, but I'm rocking the 3T and planning to keep it as my daily driver until the 9T is released :D

    Definitely plan on sticking with this device for at least 3 years. I love the feeling of upgrading when it really makes a difference. Buying a new phone every cycle just to get the latest and greatest might be thrilling for some, but I prefer the bigger, more substantial upgrade experience.

    Just came up from a Moto X 2014 Pure Edition!! Couldn't be happier right now.

    I will keep my 5T for 3/4 years... 8gb of ram are important for its longevity. You should consider that actually Google's phones have 4gb. The SoC is very powerful and it will be supported by the xda community for a lot of time when OnePlus won't update the phone.

    I have used both phones and I can tell you for a fact Pixel 2 was More snappier after two days of use for me
    and Will stay that way far longer coz it is and Will be far better optimized that being said 5t is in no way a slow device and I think it will stay that way ofcours not everything is Apple [e]1f602[/e]

    But the most important thing is that we will receive very stable roms (officials and not) until Pixel 2 will be updated!

    Not sure yet, it may vary from the situation and future needs :) however at least 12/ 18 month... the purchase must be somehow justified to me.

    I have my last phone for 5 years. I hope this phone last that long.

    I usually keep my phones for around a year then get a newer model and sell the old one. That way I get a decent price for my phone

    Well, I used to keep my phones for about 2 years, but after having the 3T for almost a year, I somehow felt the need to replace it with the 5T. It will be really interesting to see if the average lifespan of phones will increase or decrease. On the one hand, nowadays phones are powerful enough to last longer than ever, even budget phones are solid and well built. On the other hand, we are at a point where bigger technological leaps are possible between iterations. Coming from the 6 GB version of the 3T, the only significant difference with the 5T is the display (i.e., the bezels). For me personally, that was enough to justify upgrading as I experience it as a real improvement. For most people however, the 3T could last many more years (given that the horrible Oreo problems are resolved by coming updates). If the main trend of 2018 truly would be putting the fingerprint scanner under the display, I can see myself holding a 6T in my hands in a year ;-)

    I expect to change my 5T this summer. I change my phone every 6 months approximately. The phone could probably last 2 years or so for me.
