I just updated my A10 with the March security update and after it was done there was a junkware that got installed along with the update. STOP DOING THIS SAMSUNG. UNFORGIVABLE

Old hardware . Even with latest update they are slow compare to new models . Phones 3 or 4 years are already old no matter latest update .

Dineshwaran, 22 Feb 2021Any how they can't surpass APPLE At least samsung gives you a 2 year warranty compared to my iPhone that gets one year .

Planned obsolescence is a thing. Smartphone makers don't always push updates to make things better for people holding on to their older phones. Apple openly admitted to slowing down their older phones through software updates.

Not everyone has the time or ability to complain to the vendor to fix the issues. And even if they complain, there's no guarantee the vendor would fix it.

You should've stuck to the comments section for iPhones. Why did you have to poke your nose in a Samsung article section?

So for people who got confused or didn't read the article ;) :

4 years of SECURITY UPDATES for ALL Galaxy phones from the Z, S, Note, A, M, XCover and Tab series, launched since 2019.

3 major ANDROID UPDATES (OS) for all Galaxy S, Z, Note launched since 2019. And mid-range Galaxy A51(5G) & A71(5G) from 2020 and up.
For example: If your phone came with Android 11 you will also get Android 14 (+ 4 years of Security updates).

2 major ANDROID UPDATES (OS) for all the rest of the Galaxy family.
Like the cheaper A0x, A1x, A3x, A4x models, M-series and F-series
For example: If your phone came with Android 11 you will also get Android 13 (+ 4 years of Security updates).


NO Samsung phone will get only a single Android update + 1 year of security updates.
But it's very common for most other Android manufacturers in the low- and mid-range segment... cough... OnePlus, Motorola, TCL, cough... cough...

Note 9 and s9 deserve android 11:-(
