As the HW manufacturers would get continuous revenue also from the use of their devices.

Right now they primarily make their money from the hardware sale itself, and if they are to include 7 years of software support in the price, then surely the price of their devices will have to increase. Or they have to look into other solutions, such as ads, promoting their own app store or extended support as an additional paid (subscription) service.

It doesn't help that customers ask for 7 years, or whatever, of support if they aren't willing to accept that it comes at a cost.

Seriously! I just bought the Mix 4. I really hope they decide to give it the same treatment. This just came out!

Chixby, 09 Sep 2021Yeah i had poco f3 and it was full of ads and annoying bugsDon't be childish. You can disable all ads. It is very easy. For bugs Xiaomi will fix them for sure.

They really make it sound like 3 years' worth of updates is a privilege when it should be the basic support system. Ideally 5 to 7 or more. For crying out loud, 2G phones lasted 10+ years and updates were not a thing.

It's nice if they update for longer, so we can get newer vendor blobs for more secure and stable custom roms.

It's because that first one is usually there to impress

That one is usually in development with all the relevant teams making the deadline and ensure all things are good for a nice launch first impression

This is not entirely true as the A1 and A2 run android one so they were also guaranteed updates for so many years like the current gen Nokia phones.
