That's exactly my problem with Android. I've stopped buying Android devices at 6.0 after getting burnt repeatedly with promises of upgradability. It hasn't happened once, and I own 4 Android-based tablets. You know what they say about repeating the same thing and expecting a different outcome. In the end, it's my money that's being wasted, and this sheep has had enough.

My dad bought an Android phone (heck of an upgrade from his previous flip-phone) after buying a new SUV in part because there's an app for it that can display all sorts of things, including remote start. The phone (brand new) came with Android 9, and the manufacturer's vehicle app crashes repeatedly right after showing its splash screen. I suspect they've never bothered testing with his particular phone model. But then, I don't know what hardware dependency it might be looking for. It should all be software-upgradable IMO, if only they bothered.

I'm of the belief that everything based around Android becomes abandonware in no time. Given how quickly Google abandons all sorts of projects, I'm not surprised...as a result, as a developer, it's NOT a platform I want to support.

Say what you will about the Windows Phone - mine kept receiving regular updates years after the pundits declared it dead.
