Samsung Has an Impressive Software Update Policy

Samsung has generous software update policies for its Galaxy smartphones and tablets. No other smartphone brand provides as many as four Android OS updates to its mid-range phone, but Samsung does. Several brands don’t even offer this many OS updates to their high-end devices.

One of the best things I like about Samsung is its clear-cut software update policy. Users know how many OS updates they can expect on their Galaxy devices, while many brands such as Realme, Oppo, and Xiaomi don’t tell their users about the software support for most of their smartphones. Users are left in the dark about the future Android OS availability for their devices until the official list is out, which generally arrives months after the new OS is released.

Samsung had the best software support until Google released its Pixel 8 series with a mind-blowing 7 years of OS updates. The South Korean giant didn’t take much time catching up with Google by offering the same software support for its Galaxy S24 series.
