I'm newly out of contract with my horrific local cellphone provider and will probably be going back to AT&T or maybe Sprint. I have had iPhones now since the 3. I kinda' like the new Samsung Galaxies. iPhones generally handle 2 to 2.5 major IOS updates with no trouble. The .5 is for when the phone will take the next major update but the older phone lacks newer hardware to take full advantage of the whole IOS update, but what it can handle, it will handle. The one time I had an Android I was seriously disappointed by the fact that the OS it came with was not only not the latest Android OS, but the phone would not upgrade to even the next OS, let alone any subsequent major upgrades. Is this still the case with Android phones? If I get a slick, Star Trekie Samsung Galaxy am I stuck with whatever OS it comes with even while the next OS is being raved over all over the internet? I'm neither a brand whore nor a sheep. I buy in accord with my personal needs as a consumer and OS support is a deal or deal-breaker for me. Your experience?
