Your mobile computing experience is largely dictated by the sheer power of the hardware inside your smartphone. For those that have adopted the mobile-first lifestyle, having an up-to-date device is imperative seeing as you can't simply swap out the CPU or add more RAM like you can with a PC.

With this week's open forum, we ask the question: how often do you replace your smartphone? Are you the type that resides on the cutting edge of mobile technology or are you content to use a phone for at least a few years before upgrading? Perhaps you're accident-prone and find yourself buying a new smartphone more often than you'd like?

Whatever the case, feel free to share your preference in the comments section below!
