Dataminer49er, 11 Jul 2020This bodes well for companies like Nokia and Samsung, but is meaningless to others like LG who... moreExactly, this is the problem with Android. One company is making the operating system, another company is making the chipsets and in the end the manufacturer company needs to figure it out how to put them all together without issues for the end user. No wonder the majority of times this doesn't happen and a lot of models have issues.
Now you understand why a 4 year iphone with 2GB of ram is working fluently with the latest IOS, but a 1 year Samsung with 6GB ram has hick-ups each and there. Yeah, I am talking from my own experience.
Zenphone care, 11 Jul 2020NeverLol.
When will my Android phone be updated to new operating system?
Ok, it's good this way too. Who needs software updates anyway?
Life of an Android user. Especially mid-range and low-end devices. Been there done that..something else new?
This bodes well for companies like Nokia and Samsung, but is meaningless to others like LG who are unable to keep updates flowing.

When will Xiaomi Mi A1 from Android One receive Android 10? It was promised two years of Android version upgrades, but they stopped with Android 9 after only a year.

LG Superfan, 10 Jul 2020I doubt it too but that's the only way I could think ofHey, it would be nice if they could. I do appreciate how Google have made a strong effort to get to mitigate fragmentation over the years.
Anonymous, 10 Jul 2020And what did iPhone achieve by 5 years of updates? All the latest features on iOS are already... moreIt's not about features its just if you are paying high amount of money than you should get the best support
Anonymous, 10 Jul 2020Why would Google force it when they don't even cover that many years for their own tat If they are going to force it they must do it themselve first of course
All these companies talk their talk about the environment & electronic waste, yet practice forced obsolescence by dropping software/ firmware & security support for their devices.
If the XDA community can do this why can't Google android & OEM's?
Yes, android OS updates are nice to have, and their should be a minimum of 3, like Google & OnePlus.
But to me Security patches are the most important, there should be a minimum of 5 years.
We've seen Samsung S7 get 4 years, Apple seems to get 5, can android & OEM's beat Apple?, Yes, are they willing to??, Time will tell!
I don't want to buy or recommend any flagship with it's life cut short because they decide to quit sending security patches, when the hardware is working perfectly fine.
So OS & OEM's that lack support should be named & shamed, & credit, kudos, praise & recognition to those OS/ OEM's that keep their products & users safe.
You can see OEM's Android Security Support here:
LG Superfan, 10 Jul 2020Google can control GMS, they can force OEMs to give 4 years of updates and if someone doesn... moreI highly doubt Google would try to enforce such ban, Android development would become a ghost town.
Best Google can do is make the api's in the incompatible with older versions of Android, which they already do of course, but the oldest support version is usually about 4 years old at that point. Which is necessary as it takes different isn't different lengths of time to push out such updates.
AnonD-893029, 10 Jul 2020With Android being open source, Google simply do not have that level of control. They can make... moreGoogle can control GMS, they can force OEMs to give 4 years of updates and if someone doesn't they can block their GMS license for the particular device and don't license any of their phones for the next year or two I know it's not going to happen but still
