Love to see what a Samsung battery would be like after 4 years ..most are crippled after a year.

3 years, of what? Of cripplin the phone? After 2 major updates any samsung phone just can't take a beat anymore. 4 years of security and QoL updates, yeah, very nice. But 3 major updates!? Sorry, but I don't trust ya on this one...

Even the Google Nexus phones back then, got one (first models) and later ones, two updates... That's why everyone back then was using custom roms. ;)

Anonymous, 22 Feb 2021Can't wait for iOS 20 to take advantage of Android 10 ... moreAh yes, the ever repeated lie how Android is so much more advanced it doesn't even need updates at all. Except it's the same damn thing. Just not updated at all after just 2 years on most devices, left to all the exploits and flaws after that point and left without any useful features presented by new versions (like all the cool features in Android 12 that will never see the light on 3/4 of phones currently on market). Go sell your BS to someone who only ever seen Android and is still stuck on frigging Android Oreo and thinks its the best thing ever. Heh. You people are hilarious. You repeat this lie so often even you yourself believe it. XD

If they dont wana add 4 OS updates also this is pointless because some apps does same thing for fre such as Avast ,AVG, Symantec or Norton etc.

Note 1 and and Note 3 got 1 update,then just abandoned us,£1500 pounds down the drain for 2 of there flagships at the time ,l never bought a Sammy phone since,shame on you Sammy,😠

Honestly, this is a very good news for Samsung users. Not that their oneui will have any noticeable changes going several version upgrades as it was already heavily customised and altered from vanilla android but still, at least Samsung is committing to update the base is good news. Now other OEMs should pay attention to this, I am calling out to you Moto.

Then realized it's the same thing they've been already doing. And it's rather pathetic. I guess I'll just stay with Apple until some Android phone maker moves their sorry rears and ups the software support game. 3 years is the best they can do on phones that cost 900€ and more? Ugh?!

At the prices we shelling out for flagship phones they could do better than 4 years. Just imagine after having spent 1800 dollars on a fold for it to become paperweight in 3.5 years.

Why galaxy A80 couldn't upgrade to Android 10? It says that's the latest software update, also in its specs from this site it mention that its upgradable. Gladly its included hope it will update to Android 10. I'm also glad s20 FE is included hope 3.1 will come for it. But the update is really for security only? Hope not only that thing
