Nokia 7 plus is a lot better than Samsung a8+ at least you're sure you'll get 2 years of android updates and 3 years of security updates (every month)
Trevor T., 05 Mar 2018Only logical, given the cheap price tag /s Yeah it's just 600Â€ in EU lol
My A8 2018 didnt get update till now since i buy from first february
what about the Galaxy C series SAMSUNG ????? WTF.....
premium mid rangers find no mention huh...
Monthly?? LOL i didn't get any securty update to my S7 after 2017 October Security patch :-/
Where is A3 2016? A5/16 is still on monthly updates! Even J3 2016 is on quarterly updates! WEIRD Even my ancient Lumia 730 gets updates more often
I am patiently waiting for Nokia 7 plus. My relationship with Samsung phones is over.
Nobody cares about security updates.If Samsung wants to stay relevant then they should give 3 Android version updates to all phones above $500 and 2 updates for phones between 250-500$.
Also by major updates I don't mean launching the phone with outdated software and updating to the current.
My next phone will be from a Oem that cares with my security...
Lets hope that there will bee someone with 3 / 4 years of updates.
Its time to change !
The only explanation for this would be that A8+ is only sold on asian markets and A8 on european markets.
Seeing as how they can barely keep up with updating the S8 to the latest security patch this was not to be expected and I'm guessing the same will happen to the S8 at the beginning of next year when the S10 comes out. Just forget about updates if you own a samsung device.
Anonymous, 05 Mar 2018i don't understand why samsung doesn't care about security in general and to make everyone as ... moreAnd where are Microsoft phones???? It´s not that they don´t care, it clearly doesn´t affect them enough. They would if it affected them as much. Apple usually provides very quick security updates but you do pay a premium for it.
Same as before, Galaxy A5 gets monthly and A7 quarterly, so their most recent offerings A8 same as A5 and A8+ same as A7... A8 substitutes the A5 line and A8+ the A7 line. So it makes sense. they just changed the naming convention so their phones all follow the same pattern with Note 8, S8 and A8...
Weird indeed. But it's not like that's going to make a difference. People make such a big fuss over security updates as if their private lives are incredibly important.
