I’m solidly in the “Android” camp, but there’s one thing about my iOS-equipped buddies that makes me envious: the software maintenance cycle. Things aren’t as awful as they were, say, five years ago, but most Android phones still only get two big upgrades each year. Granted, Samsung took action and began extending the update cycle, and Google promised to catch Apple with its Pixel update policy, but the fact is that if you purchase an Android phone, you’ll be fine for approximately two years in terms of software.
