Samsung is better than Google at mid-range OS updates



In recent years, Samsung has become the best Android manufacturer in terms of updates. In the beginning, that statement had an asterisk, "except for Google", but now Samsung is even better than the search giant in sending out new OS versions in the middle segment.

For all intents and purposes, it remains to be seen how well the promises are fulfilled, but on paper, the Galaxy A53 will receive more new Android versions than Google's equivalent phone, the Pixel 6a. The Galaxy A53 will get four new OS versions and will reach Android 16, while the Pixel 6a stays at Android 15.

However, both phones have been promised five years of security updates. But it is noteworthy that Samsung offers a better update policy than the company behind the operating system itself.

Meanwhile, manufacturers like Sony have fallen hopelessly behind by only guaranteeing two generations of Android updates. How important do you think updates are when choosing a new phone?
