We all saw the news of 3 years of OS upgrades promised on new Flagship galaxies.

BUT, why is this so hyped up?

Looking at iOS, this support is laughable. Instead of hailing Samsung for finally opening their eyes, criticize them for taking so long and yet not providing at least 4 years of support.

Android must up the game ASAP because iOS is getting Android features with the best application performance at comparable prices. The more features iOS gets like Android, the easier switching becomes. 

Samsung must make 3 years mandatory for midrangers and 4 years for flagships (with 5 years security updates).

But people are like "woooow Impressive"

**bleep**?

Software support is normal. Nothing to ride home about.

I also assure you, in the 3rd year of OS update, the phone will be so deprioritized, it will arrive late AF for anyone to give a D A M N.

Bro apple has its own chipset and their own OS so they can provide for 5 years update. Whereas Samsung uses SD and exynos processors and Google's Android OS which can support updates for only some generations. and also it's not great that Apple is providing updates for 5 years. Moreover all the updates will be same so no new thing in that. If Samsung would had their own OS then they could have given more updates.

Just to let you know why 5 years software upgrades are not given by companies for android.

agreed...

they should have done this long time ago...

now the hype is unnecessary...

even when they ignored mid range and budget phones... people hyping it is unreasonable

apple doesn't provide full fledged OS updates to its devices older than 2 or 3 years. Most of the updates after 2 years are security related which doesn't provide any new features.

Samsung on the other hand will provide 3 full android updates with most of the new features and 4 years of security updates as usual. That's why it's so hyped.

well three years of major updates with new and improved features vs 5 years of just security patches , bug fixes and slowing down the phone. lmao.

apples 5 years of updates is just for show, like theres barely any difference between like ios 8 and 13
