IPhone has also sent an update for the 6s.
To compete in this market, Samsung must offer a three-year update for the S series and Note series phones.
Android 11 for the 2018 phone(S9,S9+,Note9) can be very impressive.
Scarecrow8310, 16 May 2020what phone do you have?me ii have the galaxy s7 edge
will the android 10 update rollout to all the s9,s9+ & note 9 handsets all over the world and also in africa. pliz let me know.
My phone had both updates, and started restarting more frequently. Which was weird. And then last night it became a brick. I can intermittently turn it on for maybe 5 min. Forced deprecation?
Having an S9 with the new Android 10 update and one UI2.0 just installed I'm very happy to receive this update 2 yrs after purchase. Phone still feels like a flagship to me and will pass on to someone else to enjoy soon once next upgrade happens. The upgrades need to have the actual tech to work properly. Look at any of the videos on youtube that show people trying to root a Galaxy S7 and force android 10 and one ui2.0 - camera stops working and you lose secure apps that will fail as soon as you root device such as google pay. I have a brother that uses an S5 and son uses S7 with the last available software and both extremely content that they still have amazing phones that do so much in comparison to equivalent ios devices
I have an s9 …. shouldn't I get 2 major updates …. I will switch to iPhone … they get 5 years of updates
FrostPE, 31 Mar 2020OMG, when some Android manufacturer will learn the good thing from APPLE - Updates!!! Update Y... moreNobody cares about latest updates on Android.
It's ahead of iOS by 5 years.
I have Android phones from 5 plus years back which don't run latest version of the OS but operate pretty good without any slowdowns or bugs.
Furiounx, 31 Mar 2020And this, my friends, is why Android is [imo] obsolete. Halfbaked.Yeah enjoy getting cutting edge latest features on your iPhone 5 years late while several ppl using Android phones from 5 years back without any slowdowns or issues.
wasox, 31 Mar 2020As a matter of fact, samsung was giving a 45" smart tv with the the s10+, note10+ preorders ... moreIn that case, I recommend Samsung to extend the TV offer to all countries and make it possible as a permanent offer, not just for pre-orders....
Been having issues with the brightness not going all the way down and being overly bright since 2.0 as well.

P-CHM, 31 Mar 2020That's not the best comparison lol. Essential made a single product before going bankrupt. Pre... moreThat's a perfectly fair comparison. Essential was a tiny company with nowhere near as many employees. So they had no advantage whatsoever. If a giant company can't deliver updates of their terrible skin of Android to their main flagship line for any more than 2 years then they shouldn't be using a skinned version of Android at all as it's no better than stock Android anyways.
Besides, I'm not mad that they went back on their word, the article means nothing to me and I really couldn't care less about it at all. And I couldn't care less about your post at all, it means literally nothing to me and I don't know why you would bring it up. What I'm not happy about is that they're a huge company that handles updates way worse than a tiny company.
No the predictability has nothing to do with it. Why would it? Your point makes no sense.
Yes you're right I do have the right to ask for improvements. Though being mad is perfectly justifiable.
I respect the fact that Samsung produces a large number of phone models, therefore it is almost impossible to supprt updates for all of them for too long. BUT the flagships SHOULD have been looked after with a little more attention. Show some respect to the guys (or gals) who pay a ridiculous amount of money for the latest flagships.
This is one reason I bought the N9 right when the prices dropped significantly - just before the N10 came on the market.
In any case, give me a 1+ with a pen, and I will never look back again! Pleaseeeee!
Actually Note 9 hasn't reach it's 2 years support time and that is shame not to provide such updates to that series.
