My 4,5-year old iPad Air2 still receiving all major updates and work flawlessly fast and responsive with them.

Ivelin, 01 Apr 2019This is offensive. S7 divices are so smooth in everyday use, powerful and full of life. But Sa... moreAt least Samsung doesn't cripple their devices behind their customers back or sell shody quality devices with defects ("-gate") to force them buy new overpriced iPhones.
S7 is a great phone from March 2016, & has had 2 major OS updates from Android 6.0 (Marshmallow), to Android 7.0 (Nougat), to Android 8.0 (Oreo), yes Android 9 (Pie) with One UI would be nice, but Oreo is good.
It's been receiving monthly Security updates (although a few carriers did Quarterly), now all S7's will be Quarterly.
My 2015 S6 got 3 years & 3 months (last 1 was June 2018 (I haven't checked in 2019 yet)), & I really hope you get more because you should, the Galaxy A5 (2016) is still getting Quarterly updates, so the Flagship S7 should have a year or 2 longer.
I expect 5 years security updates with any Flagship.
The MINIMUM of Security Updates should be:
3 years= Entry level
4 years= Midrange
5 years= Flagship
ANY manufacturer which provides less should be named & shamed, any achieving or exceeding this should be praised.
Here with LG V30+ (India), not evening getting half yearly updates. Last update was in September 2018.
A5 2017 si A8 2018 best in mid range ! with monthly software updates !!! Even the new A9 2018 with Snapdragon 660 processor does not get that much
I have received 4 updates OTA since I got my S7 Edge in August 2016.
It completely depends on carrier
Romie Lee, 01 Apr 2019Who cares about updates after their devices exceed more than two years anyway? Just buy a gdmn... moreThe phone was released 3 years ago, they didn't stop making them 3 years ago. You can probably still buy a new one.
I am using Samsung Galxy S5 and I am still having monthly security updates.
S7 edge user here: dont recall ever actually getting monthly updates xD it was more every 2-3 months (if lucky)
Anonymous, 01 Apr 2019"killing update"? sorry, Samsung isn't Apple when it comes to thatOtherwise i have iphone 5s-2013! Still has the latest ios. The battery is down sure, as my s7, but still gets regular updates. S7 is a flagship phone with fine SoC. Why canÂ’ t i have the latest android?! Just 3 months security updates. Was S7 cheap in the beggining?! I do not think so. Sorry
Who cares about updates after their devices exceed more than two years anyway? Just buy a gdmn latest smartphone for yourself! Batteries are getting its age and time as well as we do. And also, most folks who buys a flagship like me buy a phone every two or a just year. So I dont care about updates that much.
