We've recently seen Android device makers become much better at issuing updates to new OS versions, especially for mid-range and lower-end models. Things still aren't perfect, but there are advancements that should be praised, especially from the likes of Samsung and Nokia.
Speaking of the latter, it's just started to push out the update to Android 10 (Go Edition) to the Nokia 1 from 2018. The Nokia 1 launched with Android Oreo (Go Edition), the stripped-down version of the OS meant to run on incredibly affordable hardware. And now it's receiving the latest iteration of the OS, once again in Go Edition form, with the system taking less space and being more optimized for the specs in question. The apps should be smaller and more efficient too.
