Anonymous, 06 Aug 2015Go buy wp or ios devices, and you'll always get updates.The problem with wp and ios is that they both don't have Google services and Play store which most people like. Some apps can only be found android but not in wp or ios. Especially the custom launcher that remain exclusive to android.
Anonymous, 06 Aug 2015What bullshit are you talking about. Google said 'it will' and Samsung said 'regularly' means ... moreBecause they have already promised this before. They announce, then they abandon, and you are forced to buy new phones.
Samsung updates are joke, they still release phones that run KitKat on launch.... And no update plan :D
what about past flagships e.g. galaxy s3? will they also release an update for it? never mind the newest os but for security purposes.

Google said 'it will' and Samsung said 'regularly' means that the update will come at least once per month or a few times per months. Regularly as in occassionally within that one month time frame. What make you think they will never do this? I already received numerous update for the past few months even before Samsung decide to work with Google.
I find this title very misleading.
Look at the language:
Google, "it will release monthly security updates"
Samsung, "regularly about once per month"
'It will' is very strong language and can be regarded as a legally binding term of agreement. 'Regularly about once per month', is the legal equivalent of saying, we are never going to do this... ever
So the use of the term promise in the title is incorrect.
it means we should be ONLY buying nexus line up since its the first to be updated when needed and first to get the new version. Google should control the update and upgrade process of android
JW, 05 Aug 2015Blackberry has no issue with Security Why would you hack the Blackberry when you can hack Android? You wouldn't rob a rural bank when the largest bank in the world is just a five minute walk away.
Blackberry has no security issues because No one uses Blackberry anymore enough for it to be substantial. If a Bear farts in the woods, did it really fart when no one heard it? :)
Google : We promise will update our android security every month
Samsung : U guys wanna update ? We release new phone every month...
