x user, 03 Apr 2018This is why i moved to Sony....!Yup. Sony's software is still the best but hardware spec and built quality is far from samsung.
My last sony is 2014 z1 compact. they have not created any better compacts since then
x user, 03 Apr 2018This is why i moved to Sony....!Sony update their phones for a maximum of 3 years just like Samsung. No manufacturer updates its phones for more than 3 years other than Apple.
What about Samsung note
Note 5 receiving regular security patches
This is very bad practice on behalf of Samsung. You buy premium device and pay big $$$ for it and then you get support for just two years? Can't believe they are getting away with it so quietly.

Anonymous, 03 Apr 2018Hey Guys, what cleaning/maintenance apps do u recommend ?
Clean Master was great, but its ... moreI usually don't recommend any cleaners as they are mostly snake oil and adware .
What I do recommend is to install a file manager and get rid of the filed you no longer need. Also uninstall / disable unused apps.
Never ever wipe any cache, unless you want to solve a problem. Your phones managed the cache well by itself.
If you really need an app to tell you how to do this, try Files Go by Google, but be careful what you delete/move.

Note7 owner, 03 Apr 2018Got to do what ever it takes to get more Galaxy S9 sales. This.
People need to remember. Manufacturers make money by selling new phones, not updating old ones. And itÂ’s not like people care. People keep buying Samsung anyway. If you donÂ’t like it, then donÂ’t buy Samsung.

Just don't do weird stuff and don't download apps from alternative application markets. Also avoid all "cleaner" and "booster" apps. And don't download apps from the bottom of the Play Store. With this, your S6 can last as long as the battery does.
