One major annoyance of buying Android phones is that there is no hope of future software updates for many of them. Some of us here own and use phones still running 2-year old Android KitKat version on their devices. Some still go as far back as running Android Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean. Sad situation really.
Most of the blame goes to the open source nature of Android. Google can only do so much – That’s why they’re breaking the OS into parts (different apps) and updating them individually. OEMs play their part too, and they deem it unnecessary or a waste of resources to invest in software updates for most of their devices.
Looking at the flip side, if you had your way, would you pay a manufacturer to make a software update available for your device? Or would you rather continue using your phone as it is? We created this poll to find out what you think. Do participate. Cheers.
