    With the high RAM and other high specs, I'll keep using it until it either breaks or the Android version is too out of date (security issues/ lack of app support). so probably 4-6 years.

    Before the 5T I had the OPO. I used that phone for 3 years. It depends for me if a phone is dead when one of 3 things happen:

    The phone has physical issues like poor battery life, a lot of scratches and damage or if it doesn't work at all.
    There is completely no support anymore. This means by the manufacturer or 3rd parties like LineageOS.
    The phone is slow in everyday use and it is annoying as hell.


    For the OPO the last happened. It just got too slow for me and had a lot of crashes on a regular bases. The battery life wasn't the best anymore but still usable.

    I plan on using it for about 2 or 3 years depending on these factors

    Best way to describe it.

    As long as it keeps getting support and updates.

    I had my Nexus 5 since 2013 and the hardware was fast enough for me... but when it got stuck on marshmallow I couldn't bring myself to buy a phone that was triple the price of the Nexus.

    Honestly bought this phone for the price, as it was as close to the Nexus price point and the specifications where on par to what the Nexus was comparatively in 2013.

    Cutting edge for 2017 is the 5T, but only time will tell if support is on par with Google. Custom ROMs not withstanding.

    Today I sold my 5T for half the price of the OP6 on the day it goes on sale, I guess the ball is one in OnePlus court...

    It was very hard not to buy the 5/5t I desperately need to upgrade but knowing where oneplus is headed with the 6/6t I can't. There's just too big of a upgrade coming.

    I hope that OP will provide support and decent updates for at least 2 years. 2 to 3 years and I'll be happy of choosing an OP device.

    As long as it lasts. I am thinking 2-3 years. I really love this device so far. 7 hrs SOT is a blessing coming from a faulty Nexus 6P

    Well there's going to be two types of people or rather three. The first is the type who is going buy the latest phone as it just gets released, the second will keep their phone for a medium amount of time, maybe one to two years. And the third type is going to keep the phone as long as humanly possible (like the guys active in the oneplus one thread).

    Personally, I have the itch to upgrade often but not too often. I like to wait about 6 months after new releases so their prices come down. Now that I'm in Europe I'll check ebay etc for any sales. There is local sellers who sell new phones much cheaper than the shops and offer warranties too. I know their support is probably crap but for a 25% or more cut on the price I'm okay.

    To be honest, the oneplus 5t is my first device and the only way I can see myself changing to the 6 is if it actually improves on what I think I want, which is the camera. It's still not quite up there with the rest and understandably so, I have no idea how much it costs to put OIS in a device for example.

    But after seeing the overall package of the Google pixel 2, for me it's a compelling offer as it does a lot right. Like dual front facing speakers camera etc.

    I will change devices if it's not costing me much to do so. If there is a device with a big improvement in specifications and the price is not too much more than what I can sell my current phone for then I'll do it.

    It's just my opinion, I don't mind paying a little to upgrade every now and then if there's significant features added.

    Me too, my previous Huawei was getting 3.5 hours with the same usage as I have now. Now I'm over 7 hours sot. It's amazing.

    I held out with the OnePlus X until the 5T was announced. I only switched because of the 18:9 screen among the rest of the specs. I'll keep the OP5T until another ground breaking feature hits the OnePlus mobile family.
