People are so brainwashed by Apple's non-sense, they accept things that would be unacceptable 10 years ago before Apple's arrival.
A hardware should receive updates as long as it is capable, just like Windows on x86/x64 systems. Windows can run on an Intel Pentium 4 of 2001, an expensive AMD Threadripper or Core i9 of 2000€, or a cheap AMD APU or Intel Atom of 10 bucks, as long as it is x86.
Phones - no smartphones should be the same, no discrimination about how expensive you bought it.
In 2005 when smartphones where a niche device with Symbian and Windows Mobile, nobody would have accept such thing of OEMs limiting software update, especially if the phone is capable.
great because the s6 still is awesome, it holds its own right up there with the best of them, high pixel camera, beast gpu and cpu, beautiful screen that still has the highest ppi count compared to even the s7 and s8, minus the camera bump, it is also still the thinnest of them/thinner than s7 s8, battery and expendable storage is probably the only draw back it has but both have yet to bother me...but yea love the design, still has capacitive and physical button which i love over touch, plus front finger print scanner, i have yet to need to or care to upgrade, it always gets the lastest software and its getting oreo, what more does one need
This sounds pretty nice. S6 is still a capable device, one of my friends still owns one and it still feels premium and fast enough. Only downside is battery, but that's kinda old story with S6. But yeah, this might be a game changer for updates. Maybe there will be three major updates for higher end devices and atleast two for midrangers? Who knows, I guess that we will see. It is the time to get that atleast, everyone is improving mostly hardware, but slow software updates and lack of them is the real big problem for Android right now. It will be interesting to see what will happen next, for sure.
aceofgenerations, 10 Feb 2018How do you know? You speak like you've used Oreo on the S6 or you are developing the update. Lol.You just nailed it mate .. Hehe..
AnonD-678866, 10 Feb 2018And after update it device gives u errors.emmc boot fail and yes u cant role back bcz bootload... moreT Mobile devices are well known to come with an unlocked bootloader.
Also, Samsung usually takes its time to update, however they use to deliver a mostly bug free product when updated.
AnonD-678866, 10 Feb 2018And after update it device gives u errors.emmc boot fail and yes u cant role back bcz bootload... moreI'll consider Nokia only when they decide to release devices with unlocked bootloader!
AnonD-678866, 10 Feb 2018And after update it device gives u errors.emmc boot fail and yes u cant role back bcz bootload... morePossibly, but not for everyone. That never hapenned to me rocking an S5 at least.
And after update it device gives u errors.emmc boot fail and yes u cant role back bcz bootloader is locked.throw these Samsung away buy op5 or wait for Nokia new releases.

I did praise Samsung's effort fo... moreYou don't care about the features but you care about the software update support alone? So basically, you care about added numbers to something as opposed to increased usability or productivity? I smell a naive Apple backer right here but then again, you've made another hideous statement right after by saying that Stock Android is there to experience iOS on Android. Dude, no one wants that. And Vanilla is the way Android is supposed to be used, regardless of how bare bones it is? I smell Jobs resurrected. Albeit a very Job-less one. xD
Onyxia, 10 Feb 2018The Xiaomi Mi A1 is an Android One phone, so OF COURSE it's going to get Oreo sooner. And let ... moreI agree, better have stable updates.
But no need to give it in mid february.
Samsung could start working on it in august, beta test in late october. Not one week before Xmas.
Everyone is getting excited for nothing lol two companies that wants you to upgrade more than anything is Apple and Samsung.
Hayaan Mo Sila, 10 Feb 2018The same time, it is a shame that their flagship Note 8 is just starting to receive Oreo when,... moreOh come on, it's been discussed 100 times, your shitaomi runs on stock android, and still been released with a bugs twice and had to been recalled. Samsung runs on heavy customized and future rich Samsung experience skin, which requires a lot of work, plus Samsung one to make sure it releases bug free. Better wait and get perfect update, when get quickly buggy releases without features

I would rather have a late but stable update rather than a buggy but fast update anytime. Just because some manufacturers release Oreo sooner, doesn't necessarily mean they're better.
