Based on our own experience, we have seen very few brands really take an interest in it. In addition, the fact that manufacturers don't talk about it, consumer awareness is growing also found to be very low. In fact, there is little information on the updates among the ten most important things that must make up the features of a smartphone and which consumers care about the most (…) It is therefore not surprising that the major manufacturers are not deploying very little effort when it is necessary to implement updates operating system and device safety, and this is what how much it is even an element of the utmost importance on a smartphone. At this level, it should be pointed out that most key features, including battery life, processor, camera and memory, are directly related to the performance of the camera underlying operating system. A regular update improves significantly experience the consumer. ».

Samsung follows closely with 89%, while Xiaomi follows suit with 84%. It should be noted that Xiaomi has succeeded in ensure the launch, at an affordable price, of its products while at the very least equipping the latest version of Android (…) Many factors play a key role in ensuring greater regularity in terms of software updates. However, some brands have deployed a lot of more effort than others in order to succeed in reducing the time needed to get the latest version of Android on their smartphones. Only a few brands have made a real commitment to ensure that their smartphones can use the latest versions of the software operating operations. Nokia has been the most efficient and fastest brand to offer regular updates on as much as 94% of its portfolio in just one year after the launch of the latest version of the Android. »
