first, how do android os updates help you in your life?

to know this, we need to know which android updates in the recent 2-3 years has helped you, and how exactly had they have helped you?


if not helpful, we can then look into non-andorid one phones

if helpful, then we can check here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Android_One#2019




second, do android os updates help you the most in your life? what about a phone helps you the most in your life?
  • ?
  • seems like is in the top 3
  • software + os for desktop/laptop are extremely extremely important
    • but the problems with phones is that they appear to introduce more problems than any significant benefits

how often does android update? looks pretty random
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Android_version_history#Android_9.0_Pie_(API_28)

this means cant predict the near-future or anything (that's a problem)

  • in last 2-3 years, average updates looks like once a year,
  • so that means android one phones would get 1-2 updates on average
what are the os update history of android one companies? does the update history show they actually update in a timely manner?
  • ?
  • doesnt seem like they do

the main beneficial use of a 📱droid phone - i think would be mapping
  • i cant think of anything else that would be helpful or worthwhile when it comes to a phone

where to find a full list of phones with dual gps chips? and how exactly does the accuracy benefit or help you in your life?

many phones has the basic needs of a phone, so the best phone would be the low-cost option
  • but a phone also has excessive & 'extra' features, but do any of them help me in my life?
  • if they do, what are those 'extra' features, and how exactly do they help me?

if any one of the phones from a big company is best,
then that tells us that the existence of leading company = better options

the best phone would be the:

  • updated / latest
  • low-cost option

Tablets that has LTE, and that doesnt have a gps chip,
  1. does google maps work?
  2. does g maps find your location?
  3. are you able to get direction?
  4. do you get voice direction?
dont think most tablets has gps chip

Only use of an android phone is for maps? How about music player, video player, note taker, document reading/creation, news reader, book reader, something to use as a phone or for texting, camera, video camera, banking center, scanner, gaming, social networking through Facebook, etc..., shopping center (I use the Amazon and Newegg apps a lot myself), web browser, etc....

Here are some sites for phone info

And of course there are tons of phone review and info articles on other sites
