I haven't received update fo... moreIt depends on how brand managed their business, you can't blame them since it is their business strategy, normally for flagship class 2 major upgrade is Normal and for middle class 1 major upgrade is Very Great since mostly this middle and low class never receive major upgrade, Nokia marketing is different since it is the brand value for giving the major upgrade for all class if their hardware is capable

Peter-B, 17 Aug 2018Someone should tell OnePlus that, they are bringing Pie to ... moreNo one stops anyone to upgrade even a 2015 phone to Android Pie but there is an enormous gap between available hardware low level functionality of what was available in 2015 and whats available in software today. That alone guarantees only one thing: not everything will work properly most likely. We are not talking only about CPU exclusively but other components inside the phone that manufacturer has to write new drivers for. If there are no native drivers Android will emulate itself over it with (reason why Android supports infinite hardware combos is because it emulates itself and that's why it's the worst performing major mobile OS) Even Qualcom officially doesn't support some chips for Oreo upgrade and it will not support Pie on some as well , that means that phone manufacturer will have to write third-party driver even for the CPU.

Unless Google has solved a lifelong problem of every new Android version having a larger appetite like being more and more resource hungry I kind of have doubts that original performance of these devices will prevail. Maybe in G6 that would not be that apparent cause it's already a dog of a phone if you try to run anything more than HTML apps and Calendar but that is the target market so consumer might not see the performance decrease but it case of OnePlus 3 running SD820 that would be more than apparent. SD820 is unpredictable chip, it's flawed from the factory. It didn't work right with the software of it's time and for sure will not work right with software of today. Chinese are very bad at updates as well, I love their skins for Android they are very creative but performance is not their game. With every major skin update everyday performance gets downgraded, you can ask many Huawei, Xiami users about that. They do not invest too much to properly support already available phones. Take OnePlus with Marshmallow and one with Oreo and compare everyday performance

Now XA1/XA1 Ultra are abandon. I haven't received update for some months already after Oreo. My mother Nokia 6 already got 8.1 and receives update every month.
