Do you give importance to the number of updates of your smartphone?

Smartphone manufacturers are increasingly emphasizing the number of years of phone updates. But, for you, is it really important? This is the question of our survey of the week.

If you read our reviews, you should know that we like to be as fussy as possible. The goal is to avoid unpleasant surprises when buying a tech product. There is a point that comes up more and more often in our smartphone reviews, software monitoring, as this sometimes conditions the lifespan of a smartphone.

You should know that all models are not housed in the same boat on this ground. Some manufacturers like Samsung tend to offer four years of updates now, while most high-end smartphones are around three years of major updates. Entry-level and mid-range tend to support two generations of Android.

The importance of updating

Except that here, the editors of Frandroid not living in an airtight bubble, we regularly realize that what may be a priority in our eyes is not necessarily so for all smartphone users. Of course, many of our relatives and friends do not really pay attention to this question of the duration of software support for phones. Which sometimes leads us to wonder if this question is really as crucial as we want to think.

On the other hand, our mission as we conceive it is to advise you as well as possible during your purchases. However, from our point of view, when a manufacturer is unable to offer more than two years of Android updates on a premium phone, it is a problem that we must highlight.

Do you give importance to the number of updates of your smartphone?

For all these reasons, we are curious to know your report on this thorny question within the framework of the survey of the week.
