    I was all for android version updates security updates, OS updates originally

    In theory os updates and stock android are very good
    But in practice it's not all as good as it seem

    Have only owned Nokia budget phones but even old flagship suffer from this problem but not as badly

    This problem is do with how uniquely the android os can be ram hog of system resources and ram management system being very bad something that has never been fixed

    Also mainstream app development is aimed at flagships not mid range or budget phones and developer's do us no favours either

    So this is how it goes wrong for Nokia and low end hardware phones in general

    Ever new android version has higher system requirements then the last and mainstream apps also growing heavier than ever before also

    This means a budget phones less capable got less free storage and runs more sluggish

    There is a lack of future proofing the hardware with Nokia phones but they will run future versions of software this is a unhealthy combo for user experience

    Given Google states 6gb ram minimum requirements for android 12 now 13 is coming I really hope improved optimization comes but I highly doubt it

    Anyway rather disappointed this turn of events happened

    But first hand experience says OS updates are honestly of little benefits stock android ok but Google is problem

    Some much needed easy OS rollback feature is badly needed as a result of bugs 15sec black screen time out for example and sluggish performance

    Another feature I badly wish Nokia had
    is something know as virtual ram where phone storage is used as ram swoop space too try make up for the short comings of not having enough ram

    Android 12 is worsed version of android I have ever used and android 13 updates can't even changed back on Google pixel phones because of overwritten restore partition so Google just done a Microsoft

    Not happy with the playing field in the smartphone market at all and thought this kinda crap only happen on windows pc market

    Guess Nokia smartphones this time suffer because of Google instead of Microsoft

    Either way I hope a solution is find as I am looking else where as performance is not satisfiedly on Nokia budget phones

    Battery life on Nokia smartphones above average
    Sluggish but very good battery life considering the battery capacity and form factor

Sadly they won't be able to do that, with that sort of support for old devices they will kill their own business. I m3an apple, google cand do that without a provlem, especially apple, that takes profit from each and every apple devices used on the whole period this person uses the device. But hmd has only the devices and not the enviroment to be able to also sustain their business, i don't think this will happen to soon, but well, finger crossed.

                        Anonymous, 02 Dec 2022X means Extended warranty and updatesNokia already extended the usual Android One's 2 OS versions to 3 versions for the X series. Would be nice if Nokia extend the security updates to 4 years so that users can keep their phones longer.

                          I buy phone's based on how long it can take me and the value for money.

Instead, ALL Nokia phones feel generic and almost identical while costing absurd amount of money. Only reason one would buy them is name and even that is losing it's value and merit.

                                I wouldnt call the X lineup "cheap", because it isnt.

                                For now, it seems the updates are coming fast and reducing the number of products was a good idea

                                  Still no unlockable bootloaders so can't update older phones 😒

                                    this is what you get how fast stock android updates.
