Because the service provider need to test said update(s) first before it get installed on the user's handset as they don't want to have "quality" problems...What I have never understood tho is why Samsung or Sony etc cannot simply push the software updates out directly for their own devices?
This is a completely different issue altogether in my opinion.the next problem is the price of data.. it costs u data to download these updates.. and our networks love to give you these "amazing deals" with 100Meg of data and then charge the earth when you go over the data.. Those users will never download the updates...
Agreed, that where IOS is better than android.
So in other words load a bunch of bloatware and logos. And i assume make slighty older phones obsolete quicker by not sending out updates so that you are forced to sign a new contract.Because the service provider need to test said update(s) first before it get installed on the user's handset as they don't want to have "quality" problems...
Hah, weakest excuse I've ever heard in a long while.
Huawei are the most useless manufacturer out there. I have a device, it has not received a single update in the more then 2 years i have it.on this topic, I have a huawei g7 ascend. how safe and difficult is it for me to update from huawei themselves? Using the phones auto update it says I am up to date, but I know there is an update for my phone as I can see it on the huawei website. Updates both android verion (4.4.4 -> 5.0) and ui (3.0 ->3.1)
Since it seems that my sp has no interest in updating the firmware available, I am keen to do it myself but am a bit stressed about bricking my phone.
