Samsung Galaxy S6 Shows Why Pure Android Failed
There are many Samsung Galaxy S6 owners who don’t known what version of Android is installed on their handset and they don’t really care as long as the device works. There are others who like to known but don’t rush to look for updates and then others are fanatics about having the latest OS as soon as possible.
Fanatics keep checking their device to see if they can update and many waited for what seemed to be forever to get hold of Android Lollipop 5.1.1, while owners of the LG G4 were bragging the OS off.
Samsung used to offer an almost pure Android device with the Google Play Editions but now they have the Good Lock app. This has meant that some owners are frustrated as they used to get updated to pure Android more frequently, but they don’t anymore.
Marshmallow took a long time to get to the Samsung Galaxy S6 but it seems that not that many people went for the Google Play versions and Samsung didn’t think they were profitable.
We haven’t seen the Google Play Edition for some time as Samsung abandoned it and this may have been partly due to the fact that Sony found out the hard way that pure Android often means you have to give up on support, something which people didn’t like.
But do you know what version of Android is on your Samsung Galaxy S6 or don’t you care?
