Yes, Apple has 100% control of their OS.  Google has 100% control of Android. They decide what goes into the OS and when it's released.  The only difference is that Apple supports its phones no matter how old they are.

Apple doesn't provide updates no matter how old a device is.... this is untrue. They have a cut off every time a new OS version comes out. Apple phones also have a 1 year warranty like most android phones. If you purchase Apple care, then warranty is longer. 

 

My wife and daughter use iPhones. We have had many that didn't get updates. But they don't care about a new os. They ignore updates on iPhones and iPads as it isn't important to them. 

 

And most users will tell you that if they have a phone more then 2 revs old, the newer updates don't work well. Apple didn't port iOS 11 back to iPhone C or iPhone 5 (or older)

You make a lot of good points.  I am still done with Motorola.  Maybe I can get a Samsung Galaxy S8. Cost about the same price as the iPhone.

Yes that's true.. But still some prefer updates.. We can't compare an iPhone with g4 play as it is not a flagship like iPhone.. Moto is still good at pushing updates they do support their devices.. But yet they've promised to give 7.1 on June but it didn't work out.. Now that's what we are talking about here..

But i still love my Moto :)

Your phone will notify you when G4 play update is available.

Blame Motorola.  They promised us the update in June.  The update for the USA has not been released yet.

I've logged in yesterday to answer but maybe the kids took me out of the computer before I could reply.

 

I DO NOT UNDERSTAND:

Why the people who decided to buy a low-to-mid-range Android phone say -I'm done, I'm getting an iPhone

 

So you've spend 300 USD in a phone and then complain an get a 700 USD phone to get updates?

 

You could get a cheaper android phone that also gets updates.

 

You can get a newer phone every year or two years if you consider an iPhone will last 4 years.

 

I had a friend that traveled to UK and his Samsung crashed in the middle of the road and said "I'm done with Android I got an iPhone" WHAT? as if the iPhone will not break?

 

The cheaper the phone, the less prone to be updated or to miss features as the compass/magnetometer/NFC missing even in the G4 plus

Where is the update promised? You say that because some users posted real or fake Soak test pictures?
