Anonymous, 12 Mar 2018google takes less time to update OS than samsung takes to make a skin and some duplicate apps.... moreWeird. This is not the situation in Canada. The N8 is on the Feb patch since February. My S7 too. I do know the situation in Europe is messed up.
Shamsung as I call them promise updates but never deliver. They rarely deliver on updates for the top tier of phones and almost never deliver on phones lower than the top tier.
HEMAL PATHIRANA, 12 Mar 2018What about samsung C9 pro??? Great shame on you Samsung........nope
Gotta give credit to Samsung, drop a new model and everyone is going gaga over it.. oh new... Shiny...
You buy it and less than 2 months after Samsung is already on to its new shiny toy to sell and Samsung fans get stuck with crappy update schedules. Samsung doesn't care anymore about your phone anymore suckers, they're on to their new toy to sell you, while you get stuck with Lagwiz.
Rinse and repeat every year where Sammy fanboys tout the new and improved model. Trust us, it won't lag this time :)
google takes less time to update OS than samsung takes to make a skin and some duplicate apps. But there are some idiots who is shouting for Samsung's deep integration.
Dear Samsung stop making duplicate apps - they are cheap - and we know you are pathetic in making software. Leave it. Give premium phone - latest android(it's not your), latest security update.
Now for the the samsung supporter can you explain why they fail to give even security update within 2 months? My note 8 is having dec 17 security patch. Think and get educated.
This will be the first year that my current Verizon Samsung has not been updated before the new model is in my hands. Really pathetic. Then again, it used to only come about a month prior.
Hoffmann, 12 Mar 2018Does anyone have a clue, if the S7/S7 Edge will get Android P 9.0 ?Not likely.
Dear user of GSM Arena.
Yoou should already know that when comes to updates Samsung is always last. They only know how to support sales by expensive advertising which is inculded in price of every phone you buy. But when it comes to updates Samsung is always last.
Nokia has been reborn year ago and every month it have updates security patches and everything else.
If Samsung doesnt change its priorities soon they will end in some Garage like when apple begun :-)
LIRKER, 12 Mar 2018You're right. My 1+5T, XZ Premium and Pixel 2 XL (of course) and even my younger brother's Zen... moreIt seems like the comments here are from people who are still waiting for ANDROID OREO, when we are already on ANDROID OREO looking down at those who are still on ANDROID NOUGAT lol. But still we shouldn't criticize SAMSUNG for that, since their own UX requires a whole lot of stuff that's why they took longer to update it to ANDROID OREO. Hope Project Treble really helps in updating ANDROID fast...
Bhavesh, 12 Mar 2018Shame on A8(2018)Agree, A8 is 3rd flagship after note and s, but S3 i9300 was more delay than a8, as soon as i left galaxy, I found out alot of better phone
What about samsung C9 pro??? Great shame on you Samsung........
A5 2017 Philippines when? Coz the latest firware update drain the battery very fast and fingerprint becomes unstable
AnonD-681474, 12 Mar 2018Not want to bash Samsung but my Xperia X from 2016 has already got the oreo update. Thnx Sony. You're right. My 1+5T, XZ Premium and Pixel 2 XL (of course) and even my younger brother's Zenfone 3 ZE554KL already got Oreo than my daily driver S7 edge. Samsung is pretty lame when it comes to update.
