If Google can’t do Android anymore, maybe it should be left to Samsung

A bit controversial, but hear me out. Android is one of Google’s most valuable products. It powers billions of devices across the globe.

Why Samsung’s three-year Android OS upgrade promise is a huge deal

Much has been said and written about Samsung’s software upgrade policy over the years. Its customers have had to sit through lengthy phased rollouts and excruciatingly long waiting periods.

Samsung will now release three Android OS upgrades for Galaxy devices

Samsung mentioned in passing during its August 5 virtual Unpacked event that it would release three years of OS upgrades for Galaxy devices from now on.

There’s something fascinating about mobile devices that are capable of switching between different operating systems. In practice, those hardly ever work out, though.
