[Poll Results!] Do you care more about security updates or Android OS updates?


Last updated: July 14th, 2020 at 15:08 UTC+02:00

Android OS updates are understandably great. They bring new features and improvements. However, Samsung devices only get two major OS updates, and as we’ve recently discussed, Samsung fans should be more excited about One UI updates over Android OS.

Samsung devices do get security updates for at least three years after launch. This means that users remain protected against vulnerabilities for far longer. Many would prefer that over new functionality in the third year, particularly in this day and age, when the safety and security of the data on our devices are of absolute importance.

Where do you stand? Do you care more about receiving Android OS updates or are you satisfied that at least Samsung is providing security updates for three years? Vote below and share your thoughts with us in the comments section.

Results: Over 50% of those who participated in this poll said that they care about Android OS and security updates equally. 34% care more about Android OS updates as they tend to bring new features while only 14% said they value security updates more.
