OhNom, 16 Jul 2021I think the implementation will be 5 Years of important updates, since this year they come wit… moreGood point. Samsung had an edge in this regard too since they too make their own chipsets and thus also drivers for them. If they wanted they could support them for 10 years as they don’t depend on anyone.
RejZoR, 15 Jul 2021I have yet to see if Pixel’s 5 years is actually 5 major updates and not 3+2 and counting… moreI think the implementation will be 5 Years of important updates, since this year they come with their custom chip, they will not have to support the blocking of Qualcomm chips, which I think 888 was updated to 4 years, but it is still behind, but let’s wait for the launch
OhNom, 15 Jul 2021“Why say Android should have better long-term support”
I have Android and althoug… moreI have yet to see if Pixel’s 5 years is actually 5 major updates and not 3+2 and counting it as 5. Android vendors are notorious for such shenanigans. I was excited at first, but then instantly got super suspicious about specifics. I’ll have to wait for more confirmations on this. Hopefully it’s true and might push other vendors to do better than their lame 1-3 years they offer now (depending on device and its price). Might even do something really stupid and get a Pixel. I do like the visuals of the 6th one though other part of me doesn’t want to replace iPhone which works fine and still has several years of support ahead. We’ll see.
I have Android and although I think that 3 years is enough to weigh the improvements of iOS in 5, it is quite stupid to say that it would not be better to be 5 years old, that is something undeniable even if people want to say no, after Google announces the 5 years for pixel, if it is as it is rumored, they will go to wet commenting to iPhone that they already have a number of updates, although before they said they did not need them, and, although they do not have a pixel
I think they should be more honest, I prefer Android, but I would like to have some iOS stuff, and I’m sure vice versa too, since they didn’t need the widgets, and when they were released they only mentioned that as sick Xd, but none admit that it I would like to have things from your competitor, come on, they are only buying a brand, it is not that they have to blindly follow it, or an operating system, it is sad to see how both sides want to defend all the stupid things that their companies do, if they complained, they would have better things and we would only win the users creating more competition between brands, but they prefer to applaud like seals everything they launch, I hope one day they will realize that brands depend on them, not the other way around
RejZoR, 15 Jul 2021People think I’m this massive Apple fan for some weird reason just because I’m happy… moreDon’t listen that crazy people. Both iOS and Android need improvements. I’ve used both. But for me Android is better. I like its freedom. My 6 years old Samsung S6 Edge still works well.
Incredible year coming for Apple, first iPhone 12 series coming to best selling iPhone ever and now upcoming 13 might sell even more.
Anonymous, 15 Jul 2021So you want an award for using six year old phone?
Weird flex!!! i don’t use any hardcore apps and my phone does all the majority of new phones does anyway and 6s still getting ios updates LOL… what more do you want?
Yes, I do want a newer iPhone but why would I spend money on the ugly notch phone? I can wait 🙂
Kuba, 15 Jul 2021no usb-c no buy !!!! its ridiculous that ipad and iphone must use two different cablesYou must have had hated it back in the day when iPhone had swapped to Lighting while iPad were still using 30 pin
OhNom, 15 Jul 2021I don’t like Apple or anything like that, but I’m unbiased, it’s pretty stupid … morePeople think I’m this massive Apple fan for some weird reason just because I’m happy to tell that experience with iPhone and iOS is actually pretty good after being fed it’s absolutely terrible and literally the worst thing ever for some 8 years. Then tried it myself and realized it’s actually pretty damn good and is especially good with things I care about. They also have this fixated idea I hate Android as whole. Because saying Android should have better long term support (as all have it pretty bad including Google’s own pixel phones) is apparently a bad thing and I must be Android hater then. Lets just dismiss I used Android for 8 years before and I was perfectly happy with them, I just really didn’t like the updating part of it as every single phone I had, vendor was very quick to dismiss support for it at the first possible moment.
[deleted post]In reality no one cares how much you spend on phone or which one you own. It’s you who seems to be obsessed how much we pay for iPhones that we use and constantly bash us for owning one and constantly dismissing our experience with iPhones and what we like about them. Maybe, just maybe YOU are the problem? Ever thought of that?
Anonymous, 15 Jul 2021So you want an award for using six year old phone?
Weird flex!!! It’s also weird flex bashing someone for using the same phone for 6 years because it functions well for so long and still has official software software support and in another comment section somewhere else on GSMArena you’re all whining how iPhones are disposable trash with all these imaginary planned obsolescence mechanisms built in. Make up your minds already lmao, because your hypocrisy is hilarious as f**k.

Note7 owner, 15 Jul 2021Only 90 million? Just for starters..
Only 90 million?
OhNom, 15 Jul 2021No, it clearly says 90 million for Apple, so the comparison is correctApple = IOS.
The guy clearly stated iOS in his post and compared it to Android.
RejZoR, 14 Jul 2021They just don’t get it that you can’t compare all these companies bunched up togethe… moreI don’t like Apple or anything like that, but I’m unbiased, it’s pretty stupid to take out one’s camera, another phone’s screen, and so on, if you’re going to compare Android and iOS, it must be AOSP, or a layer of customization vs. iOS, since all phones don’t have those software options, in the case of hardware, company vs. A, or just a device vs. i12 (For example), you can’t say that Android has a better camera than iOS, because Huawei (Xd) does
People do not understand, they seem obsessed trying to get a feature out of each phone, if they are so sure that it is better they would not need to do that stupid thing, they only do it out of self-pity and to fool themselves, because they cannot have an iPhone and they want to feel that they have what better, even if they don’t really think about it
I am different, I have no interest in having something of them, but neither an obsessive hatred for trying to overshadow what they do, here most would be wet if they are given one even if they deny it, in the Droid news few comment, but since it is Some Apple, there are all going to criticize, but come on guys, they are better than this, everyone buys what they want with their money, if they are so sure (I am), that they are better, they would not need to throw so much hate, think about it and do the community a favor
[deleted post]Do you know that you are comparing an army, against a single company? Nobody forced any Android company to choose it, but they did, but ignoring all this, the comment is totally off-topic, it’s bs, when you have a real argument, you come back and answer
[deleted post]No, it clearly says 90 million for Apple, so the comparison is correct
Anonymous, 14 Jul 2021Haha exactly… I really don’t understand these guys man..
What’s the big deal in u… moreIt’s like someone taking pride in a car devoid of all modern features and equipment, only keeping it for the brand. In reality, I wouldn’t use an iPhone 6s in year 2021, even if you pay me for it.
