"That seems way too long to go without an update. Have you tried updating the Software Manually yourself? I have a phone which is now 2 years old;and it got updated Twice via the vendor only."

Asish, I used to have small updates with respect to OS from 4.2 to 4.21, 4.22 etc. but so far hadn't provided any update to Lollipop 5.0

"A fair enough statement to make. There is no doubt that Google Nexus updates the OS faster than via third Party OEMs. But even with third party OEMs on Average you get one full-scale upgrade atleast ."

Asish, Third paty OEMs are offering very less such upgrades. For my Samsung S4 Galaxy, so far they haven't provide any upgrade to Lollipop.

Jacob,

WoW!

That seems way too long to go without an update.

Have you tried updating the Software Manually yourself?

I have a phone which is now 2 years old;and it got updated Twice via the vendor only.

"Because they take more time testing Android Patches before passing Updates through;the chances are limited that they will send something through which will end up crippling your phone-Like what happens repeatedly with iPhones because Apple blindly pushes all updates through to all Hardware."

Asish, an using Samsung S4 for more than 03 years, so far I hadn't received any updates with respect to OS. But they frequently sent updates about other Samsung Apps.

"Have you tried installing Kitkat[Android 4.4 ]on a Samsung SII? Its just not possible(the Memory is insufficent).
That is why you will see the need to upgrade to new Hardware atleast once every 4-5 years. But then that also depends on your needs and wants."

Asish, the other issue is we cannot upgrade the OS with existing Hardware; especially with third party handsets like Samsung, LG etc. But if you are using Google hardware Nexus versions, it's very easy.

Jacob,

It works both ways.

Because they take more time testing Android Patches before passing Updates through;the chances are limited that they will send something through which will end up crippling your phone-Like what happens repeatedly with iPhones because Apple blindly pushes all updates through to all Hardware.

"By Contrast with Android because you have to depend on the Carrier as well as the Device Manufacturer(who each conduct their own tests) before pushing any update through things get managed that much better today."

Asish, the biggest issues with vendors like Samsung, LG etc are they are not releasing any patches for updating the pre installed OS versions. So customers are forced to opt for new hardware

"I meant upgrading your Phone(and BUying a New one). Software Updates are all manual but not most Current Generation Phones can be upgraded effectively enough to the Latest OS,etc."

Asish, it's a costlier suggession.
