    By giving phones 7 years of support, starting months ago with the Pixel 8 and S24

      The FairPhone 5 is supposed to be supported until 2031, a total of 8 years after release.

      wow, so apple's policy had a positive effect on other products. Nice.
      Also let's see how that actually works out for them. Also "support" doesn't mean that they will keep them on the latest OS versions, it could mean that they just get bugfixes and patches.

          thanks for the clarification

          Imagine being such a poorgay that you need that long to buy a new phone... I replace mine biyearly. Used to be annually but hardware kind of plateaued for the time being. So it's a battery and wear and tear thing for me now. I find that every 2 years is fine and dandy. By then I'm itching for a new phone. The digitizer starts to not register inputs. The battery doesn't last as long on a charge. There's abrasions on the screen... The new phones are shiny and pretty... Seriously if you need that long of a support window, you might want to consider suicide.

        I can root my Android phone and flash it with Lineage. I don't need no Apple or Google policy to do that. It's awfully nice of them to support my Pixel as long as they do though.

        This is the difference between Android and iOS:
        >When an iPhone reaches EOL it is e-waste
        >When an Android device reaches EOL it can still be a useful device thanks to third-party software

        iPhones will never have this level of flexibility, at least not given willingly by Apple. Hopefully the EU will continue to slap Apple with bigger and bigger fines and eventually we'll reach a point where phones are like regular computers again.

          I ended up trying this out with my old Nexus 7 and it was basically unusable. At some point e waste is just e waste. If I get 8 years of security updates that's more than enough for me.

            It depends on what you're trying to do to be honest.

            Some apps and games won't run but it still functions and still gets security updates. It's much better than the situation on iOS where absolutely every app requires you to update your iOS version to use it and of course since your device no longer gets updates you can't do that.

            For the most part Android apps still have backwards compatibility to all of the older versions of Android as long as they implement the minimum API level they need.

          iPhone 12 on iOS 17.5.1 here. Shit just works. Battery life is good. The only problem that I'm noticing is that I'm often running out of RAM in Safari on bloated piece of shit websites like Reddit but that's nothing new. I've suffered from the lack of RAM since the day I bought it. By the time software support stops I'll be upgrading to a new one anyway. Hopefully an iPhone Pro with a replaceable battery. I'm expecting another 3 years of service from this phone for a total of 6 years. That's more than any other phone I've ever had. iPhones fricking last.

      Your 6/7 year phone may boot the newest OS, but it's going to run like shit. If you want you phone ot last you're better off either flashing custom images or just not updating at all after 3-4 years.

OnePlus was the best brand of smartphones, and they peaked with the OnePlus 7 Pro, a smartphone that has no notch, no ugly hole in the screen, and the first 90 Hz AMOLED 1440p screen in the world, that even Samsung couldn't fit into their Galaxy S10+, despite it's a Samsung display screen.

      My S23 Ultra broke and I had to send it for RMA. I'm using iPhone X that I found in a drawer after forgetting to sell it and honestly it runs better even though it's old as frick. I'm considering selling the Samsung after the RMA and just buying the 16 PM when it releases later this year. I emulate a lot of games on my phone so Android was the clear choice but Apple decided to stop being moronic and allows emulators on App Store now.

      Most Android phones give you one update if you’re lucky. Idk when Google/samsung started actually supporting their hardware but for 10+ years it was expected that you just buy a new one when the 2 year payment plan is up for Android shitphones.
      I’m on my 3rd iPhone and the first one I bought in 2018 is still getting updates.
      I only buy new ones cause I like shiny things.

      Great do you just throw your phone away? And if so, do you expect that millions of other just throw their phones away when they get new ones? No. After your 2-3yr cycle you trade it in, hand it down to a child or the elderly, or sell it, because it still has VALUE, hence the need for long support windows, like real hardware.

    I don't know about how iPhone works now, but I recall a friend of mine with an iPhone 6 updating many years later and having all sorts of trouble because instead of getting just security updates, it got a general update full of shit that would drain battery faster and make the system slower overall, without a way of going back.
    I only advocate of updootes if they keep the phone as functional. I don't know if Apple has fixed this. I know there are brands out there that suck some fricking dick. Like Nothing. I updated my Nothing Phone 1 to the latest version and I have more bugs and useless AI shit. With Samsung at some point they only provide security updates which is fine. Like my A71 which still works nicely.

      I have the s24 ultra after the s21 ultra. I really like it. The s21 was fine. I had the xs max before that. iOS12 was perfect. 13 and 14 made me hate iPhones. iPhones are designed with 1 os version in mind, the one it releases with. The updates after that are a buggy nightmare. I don't know how Apple hasn't been sued over it. Meanwhile my s21u I just updated to oneui 6.1 and it's perfect. Zero bugs. I might pay to have the battery replaced as a backup phone. I miss my OnePlus phones though. I had them before and it was always a great experience. I hate the camera on the s24 ultra. Thankfully I don't use it for pictures. It does this strange smoothening shit and you can't disable it at the frick all. I just use my dslr for anything I want a photo or video of. I might trade this in for the Xperia 2024.

    If they gave you all the features, I'd agree, but my 11 Pro Max can't even unlock by faceID when it's horizontal.

    I find it funny that we are in a timeline where Google phones and Chinkphones are you best choice for long term support and removable battery for 2027

    that is too little, with current hardware there's no reason to not have indefinite support

    Android has no limited support if u have above 100 IQ, I murge security updates every month on my homebrew aosp and run the device to its last breath everytime, they become obsolute around 5 years anyway

      If you're above 100IQ you don't need support. And you're right, at 5 years it doesn't matter how slim you make your OS when every app gets so bloated it brings your hardware to a crawl. Time to trade up.

        Lots of proprietary applications have open source replacements which are lighter and work faster on older hardware.

          Yes they do, and I make use of them. 9 times out of 10 I search for a free/libre app first when I need something, but some stuff is inevitable or doesn't have the features I need. And I'm not so autistic I will just do without.

      They charge $100 for screen replacements on top of the $10/mo and $300 for any other damage. Apple care is the typical insurance you can get on any phone and essentially an over-under bet that you will not want to pay the $100-300 deductible and take care of your phone for long enough that the $10/mo premium will cover any cost over the accumulated deductible and make profit on it.

    My Samsung S24 has SEVEN years of software support. Zero hardware support though - no OEM parts will be made available to purchase for repairs.

    I should have bought a Pixel.

    It's actually 3 years of actual software support and 3 years of slowing down your hardware and no new features until you buy a newer phone, all the while reluctantly copying whatever Android's doing for innovation that might pull users out of the walled garden

        sometimes you update and oh snap my battery life is 20% worse.
        and it's cumulative, they want you to throw your iphone out and buy the latest new one.

      Phone could keep working effortlessly but the consoomer owner's spirit has given up and proceeded to buy MKBHD's latest sponsored slop.

        There's two ways - through Aurora Store, or through installing microG when you're flashing the ROM in the first place.

    why are os/security updates not device independent yet? Everyone runs the same flavor of android it should be simple enough to update if a bunch of indians can do it for free.

    My 8 year old desktop computer can run an operating system released just this year perfectly fine. Why did we let the israelite coax us into letting software support be tied to the hardware?
