¿Cuál es la Esperanza de Vida de tu Smartphone?

What is the Life Expectancy of your Smartphone?

In a world where planned obsolescence is common, our devices have a certain lifespan. The systems that power our smartphones eventually make them obsolete by no longer being able to receive updates.

Let's take a look at the most popular brands on the market and their possible life cycles:

  • Apple: If you take good care of your iPhone, it can last more than 5 years and continue to receive updates, although there will come a time when it becomes obsolete.
  • Samsung: The best models receive operating system updates for 4 years and security updates for 5 years.
  • Google: Up to 3 or 4 years of operating system updates, depending on the processor.
  • Xiaomi: The most expensive devices get two Android updates, while the most affordable ones only one.
  • OPPO /realme /OnePlus: 2 years of Android update and 3 years of security patches.
  • Motorola: One or two changes to the operating system, especially on the more expensive models.
  • Nokia: They can receive 2 major operating system updates if they are part of the Android One program, as well as 3 years of security patches.

It is important to keep in mind that the advancement of technology will eventually make our smartphones obsolete. In addition to updates, evolutions in internet connections may also leave some models behind, as they may not be compatible with new networks.
