In last week's poll we asked how often you purchase a new phone. We're constantly seeing new Android phones hit the market, day after day, and week after week. Just because they are out though, doesn't mean you'll be running directly to the store to go and pick up yours. After all, phones are expensive and picking one up on a whim might not be something you can afford to do.

That's why we asked How often you purchase a new phone. Whether you can pick up the awesome new phone as soon as it comes out, or you need to wait a few months, we wanted to know. You had five choices in last week's poll, and the results were pretty darn close.

Third place was claimed by purchasing a new phone every year, with 19.7% of the vote. Buying a new phone when you break or destroy your current phone grabbed up 17% of the vote to claim fourth place this week. And last, but not least was purchasing a new phone when your current phone starts to feel slow, with 13.4% of the vote.
