I found your viewpoint are towards to Samsung or China brand, because my 3.5 years Z2 still healthy sturdy and strong. There 2 kind of people change phone every 2~3 years, either has a deep pockets or chasing every gimmick.

The battery technology that phones still use is decades old. The only difference is that current phones have and the future phones will have non-removable battery which guarantees planned obsolescence, so that you have to replace your phone in every 2-3 years. And it's in the interest of corporations in capitalism. They don't want to make long lasting products.
switch only when the current one is no longer usable .I don't mind years or months.
the maximum period I got was 8 years ......yes believe it or not it's up to you....how on the earth.....because it was nokia 7610 and thanx😉
Approximately 3 years. It might even be longer now that smartphones are changing a bit slower than they have been before.
Pretty rarely, only when the current phone breaks down or simply becomes too outdated. But my current phone is getting to that 3-year mark, and will probably be replaced this year, especially because the brand didn't update it AT ALL, so I'm still using 4.4.4 KitKat. If not for that, I would go for the 4 or 5-year mark.
I misread it, I thought that it says "how often do you charge your phone", hence the answers like "every few months", "every two years" sounded really funny.

As I said the next generation battery technology should be more advanced meaning a smaller size with last longer battery lifespan and with greater endurance.
I choose the phones with the thought in mind that I plan to use it forever (even after the society collapsed). Therefore the most important factor is that the phone must have removable battery. And 5 years after the purchase of my current phone if there is enough worthy advancement in phones, then I upgrade to the new phone if it has removable battery.

Today's phones are much worse in regards to battery, because several 5 years old phones have removable batteries, contrary to today's and future phones.
I keep my phone until it dies or can't support the apps that I use. My long lasting phone was my Xperia Ray which lasts me at least 4 years, I replaced it with Xiaomi Mi5 (My current phone) because my Ray could not cope-up with Google Play Services' storage consumption.

My estimate 5 years to change because the technology will get much more advanced every 5 years meaning it should definitely come with new generation battery technology!
I change it every 6 months or so, because I live in Brazil and usually buy my phones in the US, making it half the price I would pay here for the same tech piece.
That way I can always resell the old phone here for almost the same price I paid and then buy a band new in the US.
I've been doing this for at least 4 years and I always have the most recent flagships.
Any sane individual who buys a top range flagship, be it a Samsung, Apple, Google, etc would be mad to change their phone within 2-3 years. If it didn't last that long then you're spending your money on rubbish. I know for a fact that iPhone 7, Samsung S7, pixel og all work fine till this day, only reason to upgrade would be due to damage or wanting a better camera ( at £500-£1000 an upgrade if that was the sole reason it better be a huge camera upgrade or why not get a DSLR).
I usually change it every two years, but I think I will stick even more with my J7 2016. Why? I always get midrange phones and older ones used to become laggy mess even after a year, and it was annyoing as hell for me. But right now midrangers became better, and I think I can easily last up to three years with this one. I'm using it for over a year now, and it is as speedy as it was when it was brand new. I might just go for a higher end phone after this one, since it will definitely serve me well for a longer period of time.
People who change their phones every few months, why? i honestly want to understand, i'll admit: i hate the idea of treating phones like fashion which some people feel they need to change with "seasons".
Other than that, why? wouldn't be better to spend money on something else? traveling for example? or saving?
