Would users here, based on their current experience with the Samsung updates, shortlist a Samsung device as their next device? Specifically the Note 10 when it comes out?
Regardless of how my experience is, never will upgrade a phone every year - personally don't think that's being savvy.
I've been on Oneplus devices for years (OP1 & OP3) prior to moving to the Note 9. Though the Oxygen OS was fluid, fast updated etc the Note 9 just works (yes it sounds like an apple story here..).
Though personally I like the newest and greatest (thus the eventual outcome to flash Pie myself) I think Samsung is doing OK currently. Would own a Samsung again as long as they stick to their current path... I mean LG's the only other big manufacturer that kept the 3.5mm.... Happily stick to Samsung for that very reason.
