Theone, 20 Jan 2016Actually, youre wrong , i have had 3 major updates and they fix stuff and don't slow your devi... moreyeah!it make sense! youre right..i also own an android phone and an iphone..i like them both. but if you compare the things you can do with an android phone to iphone, its like your swimming in a sea with a lot of idea to explore versus swimming in a pool that the things that you can explore is the things that was authorized only by the manufacturer. will, at the end, it will still also depend on the user of the phone. love the things you have while you have it. bashing others opinion will not make you rich.
this version fix a lot off issues in iPad 2, a lot less lagging and force close
Lex79, 21 Jan 2016If that's what you think is best, you'll get no disagreement from me, though I'd say Marshamal... moreyeah, but kitkag has a lot of things in development. Also as I have old galaxy ace 2, there are so damn many custom ROMs made with kitkat. Lollipop has only few ROMs, but still more than nothing and finally only one beta marshmallow ROM :/ this year will be probably last year for my phone.

We are still a while away from it's newest ApK's being adopted by the 3rd party app community (fingerprint Scanning, etc) but core functionality is fine by all accounts.

Even though mine had last update from Samsung 4.1.2 but I'm in 5.1.1 anyways because I like material design.. when 6 gets more stable will jump into it.
Android Hero, 21 Jan 2016im asking if you can still use the phone without updating it to ios 9As far as i'm aware you can, at no point will a firmware force it's way onto your device, in IOS or Android for that matter.
There are still plenty examples of the iPhone 4 model out in the wild, and they are running a version of IOS 7, yet they can still do what they need to do (access the app store and such).
it's a largely the same as running Android 4.4 (which according to statistics is still a large percentage of the Android user base), you can still access the Play Store and all that.
Lex79, 21 Jan 2016What about them? are you asking if they can still be used?im asking if you can still use the phone without updating it to ios 9
Android Hero, 21 Jan 2016how about those phones which still has ios 8?What about them? are you asking if they can still be used?
Android Hero, 21 Jan 2016People are different? or they are all the same? or maybe I have all 100000 accounts with simil... moreNo you never have to update, it's always optional as far as I have seen. And yes you can use an older phone with an older OS. As an example, my wife recently changed her 4S for a 5S, iOS 9.1 was already out by the time she did this, but at no point did the update force it's way onto the 4S.
Lex79, 21 Jan 2016Nothing in itself, it's quite a catchy nickname actually. But were somebody to call them selve... morePeople are different? or they are all the same? or maybe I have all 100000 accounts with similar account names? anyways, Can you use your phone without having to update it? Because I saw gsma thread about that iOS forcing updates to older iPhone models and that way makes all them slower.
Dot-WiFi, 21 Jan 2016whats new about android ?what do u mean?
Android Hero, 21 Jan 2016what's wrong about android hero? Doesn't mean that I'm fan of android... Just looking what is ... moreNothing in itself, it's quite a catchy nickname actually. But were somebody to call them selves 'iOS Champion' or something along those lines, and start posting jibes about Android on a thread that's about Android and doesn't mention iOS at all......what would you think? (Especially when they then claim not to be a fanboy)
And again who is forcing an update?
Anonymous, 20 Jan 2016Fandroids once again in a bad mood. Maybe it's because their phones will never get any more OS... morehah you are funny. Android is not 1 company which makes android phones. Old phones don't need updates. Because new updates slows phone just like iOS... if you didn't know already
