Reasons why your Samsung Smartphone won’t receive an Update!!!

And also the Android developers do ask different OEMs to push out updates to mend any loopholes and for better user experience.  Upon this, not all the smartphone makers do follow Google’s timely update policy and mandates. This includes Samsung, the company is the biggest Android manufacturer and well known for not giving out updates for its old smartphones.

In view of this, there was a court case by the consumer association which dragged Samsung to court for not offering software updates for its smartphones for at least four years after the launch and whereas Samsung won the case with the court ruling in favor of the company for not updating its old smartphones.
