      The Android Freak, 05 Apr 2022Filled with so many bugs. Nope I have OnePlus 6T and it runs perfectly fine with no noticeable bugs and battery life didn't change much for me.

        Doesn't project treble and project mainline mean all Android phones will keep getting important driver and Google play services updates for years, we'll past their official support? iPhones only get officially updated for so long because their updates for everything come all at once. iOS update system isn't modular and doesn't silently update in the background like Android does with the Play store driver/GPS updates.

          Peter UK, 05 Apr 2022And? It's way slower with newest iOS and there's ... morei can confirm Samsung is doing the same, is trick they to make you buy new unit.. i have still A3 2017, when i got the last security patch back in January 2021, final patch for that phone. After the restart the phone become so sluggish, and at beginning you have to wait 2-3 minutes before you can use the phone as it should be, even after that, isn't very shiny.. but at at least you can do the basics on it... and no i haven't nothing installed on it, in fact after i bought the newer phone, i removed apps, i thought is going to be faster.. but is still the same, and before that last final patch, the phone was just running fine, wasn't that slow.. also Samsung is well known for doing the same

Other brands like Xiaomi can't ... moreFunny that you feel the need to dig at Xiaomi when Sony phones from 2018 are also not getting update anymore. As a Sony user, you feel its ok Sony still only giving 3 years update even for 2021 models? Gimme a break. You are a Samsung fanboy, plain and simple.

                    Well that was quick, maybe i'm just spoiled by Apple's software support. I hate how disposable phones are nowadays.

                        I don't like Xiaomi, but at least it tends to provide the latest version of MIUI to its phones, despite not upgrading Android.

                          my s9 may be the only 2018 flagship that received major android updates for 30 months and security updates for 48 months. s10 is still the only 2019 flagship running android12 as of today. sw support even extended to 60 months by 2021 flagships. quite an example for all other android manufacturers.

                                    Too soon for flagship, it could hold 2 years more, but samsung say no, your phone is old, buy new one.

                                      The children have been abandoned by the father. Nowonder children needs to be independent from the father's software support through custom roms. Don't buy closed systems.

                                        I mean it has the latest software, but for what purpose? Phone calls and messages? You can do that without software or security updates on any 100-150EUR phone.
