I wonder how many people are still using an iPhone 3, you know it didn't get the latest version of iOS, yet no one really talks about that, wonder why? Bias maybe? Realistically who ****ing cares, these statistics are rolled out only when someone is trying to "prove" how superior iOS is, when it isn't, but that';s my opinion, not a fact

Not exactly a trivial process to go down that route.

I beg to differ. I've had a few phones come in that i've had to apply newer roms to and many devs have made "one click packages" that quite literally do what it says on the tin.

Uh. Well to elaborate, the major thing was being able to disable apps. A lot of pre-loaded stuff comes with these phones and I don't want to deal with them.

 

As well as the whole "choosing a default" thing. I can disable the stock browser, so that every time I need a browser, it opens up in Chrome.

Simple way to fix this, stop making ###### tablets and phones that run Gingerbread, and allow people to upgrade.

I haven't seen a tablet or phone use Gingerbread for a while now, and certainly not any that have been released in the last 6 months.

Can't compare XP to Android. Reason is that you can always upgrade the OS on Windows machines but you can't always do it with smart phones.Google has bad support with older products. They are focus with new releases and when someone new is coming out, they seem like they stop supporting it.

Its weird with a company like Google that a lot of people love don't care about support with users with hardware.

Google actually has really good support for the phones they sell. It's Manufacturers such as HTC, Samsung and Asus who never usually support their devices for more than a year.

You also cant always upgrade to the latest version of Windows, lack of drivers, processor not supporting certain features. E.g.Windows 8 requires NX support which some older processors do not have.

 

Your average consumer probably doesn't know / care about Android or Windows updates regardless, however those that do will upgrade in both cases.
