And i didnt buy it until march 2014. thats why we should get even 5.1.1 update on note 3 if nothing else. anyone who pays high price for phone is entitled to updates as some older phones got 5.1.1. so why shouldnt note 3. and im sure many note 3 users will agree.

Silly manufacturers (and carriers for locked phones users). Ripping people with 500+bucks worth of phones only to have it abandoned after 2 years.
I'd like to see note 7 users whine about lack of updates in 2019/2020. Unless they changed their phones by that time.

I wouldn't mind old software but we would be open to security issues.
But at the same time, updated software leaves you to the whims of Google and their cohorts.
