Americans 44% of American replace their cell phone every 2 years! Luckily, they can be recycled at nearly every phone and electronic store.

A majority of U.S. smartphone users, 54%, said that they will upgrade their phone “only when it stops working or becomes totally obsolete,” according to a recent Gallup survey. The second largest group, 44%, said they upgrade as soon as their cell phone provider allows it, usually every two years. That leaves only 2% of the American smartphone audience that chose “when a new model is released, usually about every year.” (Source)
