My wife has a IPhone 5c and she still gets OS updates.  In the Android world this is considered ancient and would not be supported.

Of course, unlike in the iOS world where access to updates is 100% controlled by Apple, there are limitless numbers of ways one can self-help with Abdroid, being open source rather than closed/proprietary, to update and customize the OS in any manner you like.  All it takes is some very easy to gain know-how, readily available on Youtube or online Android forums.

 

I don't understand why anyone with an Android phone would ever feel dependent on a handset maker for its OS software.  Does not compute.  Put another way, if you don't know how to use the device, you might be better off as an iOSheep.

Not everyone wants to be an iSheep, but not everyone has time to burn to flash custom ROMs and deal with the instabilities they come with either. Most people would rather spend time doing something more enjoyable (like playing video games or spending time with kids) than figuring out flashing custom ROMs. Doesn't mean we shouldn't enjoy substantial new features like Night Light or double tap to switch between apps just cause we decide to spend our time elsewhere.

I bet the battery life on that 5c is really amazing (not!) by today's standards. :smileyvery-happy:

She can always recharge her battery.  If you buy an Android phone you have to replace it every 2 years.

Locked bootloader maybe. Not unlockable by the way. Maybe we shouldn't expect cheap phones to get updated.

That shouldn't be.  A company should support its products no matter how much they are.
