Oh, your phone is not getting an OS upgrade! But does it really matter?
As usual, smartphones was a topic during our gossip held today. Incidentally, one of my friends happened to state (with ecstasy) that his Samsung Galaxy SII would be upgraded with Ice Cream Sandwich OS upgrade this May. Oh wow! Most of us said except one. The one holding a Windows 7 device and who was more than sure that his phone. For him, this whole course of OS updates is not of any significance as long as your device meets expectations, which is why you bought it for.
According to our friend, when we buy a smartphone, we anyways do a lot of research (I do too) to fit our needs. And that’s true; the manufacturers design the phones too incorporating just the right software and hardware. Now, if that gets altered without actually a change in the existing software/hardware, do you really think that’s going to work? If our pal’s Galaxy SII is dependably optimized for the Ice Cream Sandwich update, fine, and no issues! If it’s not, that’s where his opinion rules. If my Galaxy S Plus is better optimized for the Gingerbread 2.3, I should expect enhanced performance within this limit. An upgrade to ICS won’t affect it in anyways. My Galaxy S Plus might not be able to handle the Android 4.0 enhanced features.
And do you really think the average consumers care whether or not their phones are getting an upgraded OS? They don’t really, as long as they are working up to their expectations.
While I cannot shout around and make our readers agree to this forcibly, I am longing to believe this. While some of you won’t, some might do. The repelling community is allowed to shout out their comments below.
