Nick, 28 Jan 2020None. Just that hardware back in those days was a limiting factor, much more than it is today.... moreYes hardware was a limiting factor even up to devices like the 6 and 6s and above. Especially low ram and storage.
But poor quality software too

Apple's A9 chip has the single core prowess of a SD845, so I guess it will fare will also with the next ios iteration.

Back then, my friend has his iphone 4s tanking when he got whatever was the latest update during its time.
Yep, S8 line-up should have got the update, but Sammy decided to play greedy.
Otherwise ios14 launching this autumn will be supported by the iphone 6s line-up from 2015 making it 6 years of support. Don't tell me apple isn't greedy. Greed is one thing, but deciding to cut support to a three year flagship just to try and boost s10 sales doesn't look good in my eyes when it comes to customer retention.

You realise there is a bunch of perfectly viable line of models that don't get this update, which is important because of project treble. S7 / S7 Edge, S8 / S8+, Note 8, non of these get the update and new tablet like S5e get the Android 10 update approximately 1 year after it was released. Samsung makes Apple look like a bargain with 5 years of OS updates...
I've got Android 10 & One UI 2 on my Note9, so far the updates have been fully baked/ tried & tested/ bug free.
IMO the S8/+ & Note8 lines should've got it too, because of Project Treble etc.
You can see that the 4 year old S7, S7 Edge, S7 Active are still getting Security Updates:
They've delivered on what they promised, & are improving, but must keep improving.
3x OS updates & 5 years of security patches would be a good move for existing models (at least flagships), & more going forwards.

Since Google is pushing those updates, you will possibly receive them faster aswell.
Even if nobody cares, it adds functionality that can't exist on ONE UI based on Android 9! You don't even have Pie gestures with ONE UI, thus you need Android 10 on your Samsung if you want those. Then begins the waiting game as always...
AnonD-908380, 28 Jan 2020Yeah Sherlock Holmes, it took them long enough and almost any other of their devices are stuck... moreHow much it took you long enough? Even Samsung users don’t care about latest Android update, because most features already present.
AnonD-889996, 27 Jan 2020Android 10 with One UI 2 just got released. Find facts firstYeah Sherlock Holmes, it took them long enough and almost any other of their devices are stuck on Android 9. This thing will get Android 11 max. You would have to be pretty stupid to buy a flagship Android nowadays.
700$ max for an old phone still with 15W wired "fast" charging...
this kind of discount only happens in the USA never here in South East Asia. ..... sad !!!! even nowadays a older model phone or tablet still selling the same place even when have promotion also never have such steep discount given
S10 family is still the best option you could get in flagship category, also better when discounted. With the headphone jack being exist, people will still buy it until it gets discontinued
AnonD-908380, 27 Jan 20202 years of late software updates for the low price of 1100 dollars. LOLAndroid 10 with One UI 2 just got released. Find facts first
With discounts and prices like this, how does Samsung stay in business? The market is over saturated and only way to make any money nowadays is to milk the cash cows (fans).
L-L London-Lover, 27 Jan 2020It's too bad, when they could sell this phone for $1100 then why the starting price was $1600?... moreI see it as a normal depreciation for a 1-year-old phone, it's price should even be less than that. That phone has been out for a year and it's natural for it's price to go down. I see it as depreciation more than a discount from Samsung.
AnonD-908380, 27 Jan 20202 years of late software updates for the low price of 1100 dollars. LOLPrice for specs not for updates! DF
nepu.bug, 27 Jan 2020I don't see a lot of people buying even after the discount as these flagships are to show off ... moreThis is somehow true, for example S8 lineup will not receive Android 10 update. But, it will receive security updates for another 1 or 2 years. Which for me is more important than some little changes here in there with some next Android OS.
Yeah I know, Iphone 7, a phone 6 months older than S8 received IOS 13, and probably will receive IOS 14 in 2020. But, I will still not buy another iphone ever again. The power of a smartphone doesn't mean only OS updates.
To be honest, a lot of OS updates are hurting your phone rather than make it better. And this is true for both iphones and android. I would rather buy a phone and receive no other OS updates (just security updates) for 2 or 3 years, if the phone is working perfect.
Oli, 27 Jan 2020Yeah Samsung slashing $200-$500 off their retail price goes to show the real MINIMUM break eve... moreSpot on, mate..
Everybody cashing in big time when it comes to internal storage...Google,Apple,Samsung...
And for the people who can't live without 1TB storage in their phones-Samsung Evo Plus micro sd-xc(u3) card can be found for $80(512 GB)..just buy two..
