looks like some sam-fan tries to explain it's not that big deal not to get latest android.
But a premium phone needs to be with latest OS right - otherwise why its premium?
And Android OS is made by google not samsung - they make a skin on top of that (and they fail - see oreo s8) . Google makes a full os in a year and samsung makes a skin in 1 year ? Not acceptable.
Yeah we all know samsung software sucks - full of duplicate apps for no meaning.
Samsung should try to make a OS instead of tweaking a good OS - then people will understand how pathetic and incapable samsung is.
And they are ignorant too - they even did not push feb, march security patches to Note 8. Stop making nonsense comments and get any other device to realise that Android runs smoother if the device is not made by Samsung
Reading this on my xperia x performance fird android phone with oreo since december 2017
I don't understand why people get mad over OS updates. If the OEM has already provided a feature-rich system then other than Security updates, OS updates are unnecessary. Stock Users might disagree because they are completely reliant on OS updates for new/better features (I used to have Nexus and motorola devices). Currently, I own S7 Edge and might upgrade to S9's. I already have features such as app badges (Oreo) or Better Screenshots (Android P) in my device which is on nougat.
This is not limited Samsung. Xiaomi is famous for no OS updates but latest MIUI even on older OS, has more features than latest stock.
Moreover these OEMs keep introducing more features with monthly updates.
Every year Samsung do the same things like when its new flagship phone is out with latest android version then they release update for older phones :(
I think my Note 8 will get android oreo when Note 9 will release :D
will never consider samsing - using Note 8 , 1000$ phone .waiting for pixel 3 xl
Buy pixel and now, you've got an iOS. Android P looks like an iOS ahahahahhahaa

When the oreo update on j7 pro?
Or perhaps on j series, don't just update it on A series only

What's this to do with the fact that Samsung takes a year to update their phones?
And yes, there are bugs, including FCs and sometimes no voice recognition.
AnonD-428442, 09 Mar 2018So from your perspective, it's okay for Samsung to not even do any updates and still charge al... moreYes. Samsung don't need to upgrade their phones. Their software is already pretty good, bug free and even samsung's jellybean has more features than stock android Oreo. I see no point to upgrade. Upgrades will only cost you data if you don't have wifi.
AnonD-428442, 08 Mar 2018So, Samsung will update their phones, even the expensive ones, to Oreo, when Google released A... moreso you're willing to buy a phone with so much bugs? and then will receive updates to fix it. So much hustle....
It is said to me by an expert in Samsung agency, that it is UNSAFE to upgrade android version in home by wireless, so it should get done only by Samsung agency markets? ... Is it right?
AnonD-428442, 08 Mar 2018So, Samsung will update their phones, even the expensive ones, to Oreo, when Google released A... moreSamsung phones provide much more features (including a headphone jack), better screen quality, more RAM than the Pixel devices, etc.
There's more to phones than just having the latest software update.
AnonD-428442, 09 Mar 2018So from your perspective, it's okay for Samsung to not even do any updates and still charge al... moreHe didn't say that, he didn't imply it and the reality is that Samsung provided updates to their phones.
You're clutching at straws with your reply.
Jay, 08 Mar 2018People choose to pay great money for the hardware or great features from the OEM, not to be on... moreSo from your perspective, it's okay for Samsung to not even do any updates and still charge almost a grand for their phones?
Okay, suit yourself.
