The announcement/launch of a new phone is a really exciting time. There's a lot of press and buzz surrounding it, there are plenty of specs and features that weren't available in the previous generation, and a lot of your friends/colleagues are likely talking about that new phone, too.
Being among the first to go out and buy that latest phone release can be awfully tempting, but it's also the most expensive time in a phone's life cycle to purchase it. It may not be as hip or in-style to buy the most current Galaxy or iPhone six months after it came out, but the savings potential from various deals and discounts can be a lot easier on your wallet.
Some of our AC forum members recently got to talking about how soon they buy phones after they're released, and this is what they had to say.
Now, we want to hear from you! How soon do you buy a phone after it's released?
