Why Samsung first, when i scroll to the brands list in gsmarena homepage, Samsung is the first brand listed.
device is definitely capable for oreo and that would refresh this awesome device

Apple updates almost all capable devices, regardless of time-frame. There are only 19 Apple iPhones since the beginning whereas Samsung has 353 Android models. I am not counting tablets, watches, Windows models & Tizen models. Now you tell me, which company can provide better software support for their older models.
No one purchases latest models for latest OS, they pay for the hardware, not software. To me the minimum requirement is Android, you give me any version, I would be happy even with the Android Cupcake 1.5 but the hardware has to be right and compatible. I can always root and customize to my personal satisfaction.
If you cannot buy S9, S8, or Note8 buy "A series" models or from Chinese brands. If you try to buy now a new S6 or Note5, you might be getting a device which is resold / refurbished / returned / refunded. Just be careful.
S6 or Note5 are superb devices even now, but you cannot get all the updates for all the devices. Yes, this will repeat with S8, S9 and further.
Samsung is not losing their customers, it's in top#1 position in terms of sales since years. Regarding Note7, I appreciate Samsung the way the handled their mistake.
mdtrpa, 30 Jul 2018Really not fair, the device is capable of running Oreo.& u said "S6 is definitely capable of Oreo, but the model is too old now, for maintenance."
How come? How apple is able to maintain their devices for years? See even iPhone 5s/SE etc are still supported for latest ios 12.xx they are already 5+ years old
Do you still think s6/note 5 are too old? Not everyone can buy s8,s9,note9 etc, this really doesn't worth to burn their hard earned money just to get android O or P if their hardware is still definitly capable(see the custom roms of higher os versions on xda for example). See note 5 has 4GB ram, same thing will happen for s7 series even for s8 for later os versions.
Still no worries if samsung can't provide those updates, but I bet they deffinitly lose and already losing their valuable customers. And they already faced Karmas with note 7.
Anonymous, 30 Jul 2018BTW not fairReally not fair, the device is capable of running Oreo.
mdtrpa, 30 Jul 2018Samsung Galaxy S6 will never taste Oreo.BTW not fair
There some link about asking regarding Oreo update on xda to support centre and they say it's gonna be prepared after the s7
But who really knows Samsung on updates

So the S6 battery is not quit acceptable for me. It drops 98% straight to 60% in 10 minutes jus to use social media. It is a new device I purchased lately. And as for storage, it great! Can someone please tell me what to do to so that the battery will not die so quickly? Thank you.
Anonymous, 27 Jul 2018They update the new j3 and other phones which are no where near as good as this phone to oreoJ3 is not in the Samsung Oreo update list. The latest models gets launched with the latest OS, it's about the time-frame, not about the budget. You cannot expect J3 to be launched with Kitkat and only S series to be launched with Oreo. Would you? S6 is definitely capable of Oreo, but the model is too old now, for maintenance.
