Samsung stepped up in a big way last year when it announced three years of OS updates and four years of security patches for a variety of phones. The company has also done a pretty good job in terms of releasing Android version updates in a timely manner. Google is another brand that’s generally delivered a lengthy update pledge and timely releases.
Up until a few years ago, Android phones had a bad reputation for software support. It was not uncommon for companies to release a phone and then fail to provide even a single OS update. This has thankfully changed in recent years, as companies have increased their emphasis on updates. Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2021 is 85% off. (Update: Stock has been replenished!) This made us wonder what Android version our readers were using on their phones. Make your opinion known by voting in our poll below and leaving a comment if you’d like to elaborate (e.g. the phone model).
On the other end of the spectrum, we’ve got companies like Motorola and Realme. These brands are usually tardy with their Android version updates and don’t offer lengthy update pledges (although this seems to be changing in Realme’s case). Either way, you can vote in the poll above to let us know which Android version you’re running on your phone. Not sure how to find the Android version on your handset? It can usually be found via settings > about phone.
