Security update matters more than major OS update when it comes to long term usage. There are android phones way back 2013 that are still updated up to now with security patches. These phones may not receive the latest OS, but they're better off with security patches. Updating them to latest software, if forced, results to performance issues.
I've used an iPhone 4s and iPad 3. TBH, I regret having these devices on iOS 9. iOS 7 is better for these devices. But I want the security patches integrated with iOS 8 and iOS 9. So I have to upgrade it with the performance compromised.
It's not all about major updates after all. It's all about usability of the phone in the future. And I know that A5 2017 is still great to use in the future without performance compromises.

I agree I was not pleased with Samsung releasing the update late, but I never raged. No one else did either. It's just an update.
If you really want the update so bad, flash some other country's 7.0 ROM. There are tutorials in XDA.

In this case would software updates help?

If he wants the latest software of Android, switching to Pixel is the best option.
Apple updates their phones timely, but their software has lots of drawbacks compared to Android.
I've experienced a weird issue. While I was charging, the "Check port: moisture detected" notification suddenly appeared at 92% charge. I just ignored it and continue charging. Haha. Anyone experienced the same?

About Samsung, well It's just Samsung! An old company from Korea. Actually there is a video on youtube about how Samsung has been created. Very inspiring.
About the updates, my friend and I never faced any problems.
After all I am a huge Samsung fan and I love everything about it!
