    you should really go to the business school for understanding that. Its too hard to explain but making the older device less attractive makes the new products attractive. Apple admitted that's what happen to them in the recent times. cause they give great support for their older devices.
    I can simply explain that by a question. If your 3 year old smartphone is working perfectly and in the latest software why would you upgrade and assume you don't care about a better camera?

    But even if what you both are saying is true, some,perhaps many, gripers may not be able to afford iPhone or pixel, let alone an OP7.

    So your recommendations, may not be helpful to them even if they want or need to abandon OP. Neither does it help those who still find the OP3/t is great kit and value for money., but would just like to have the updates yesterday or before.

    Of course the gripers who are only miffed about broken promises, can't ever be helped. They will gripe even after updates have arrived.

    Given no other non Pixel device using the 820 SoC has received Pie, then if it takes OP a full 12 months OP3 users will have received better OS support than any other smartphone company has managed in terms of OS updates.

    OP were too honest really what they should have done was give us 8.1 then left if a few months before announcing we were getting Pie, the posters now whinging about the delay would have most likely been crying tears of joy that their beloved devices were getting an unexpected gift from OP if they had done it that way.

    The truth is if you want guaranteed prompt updates, particularly if it's a works phone, then buy an iPhone or Pixel and pay the premium price for the additional software support.

    Many would have been already sold or dump their devices if it were for an unexpected surprise.

    I assume they'll let me keep my Huawei Mate 10 pro? Can't be doing with the tiny batteries you OnePlus users get saddled with.

    Please:tearsofjoy:
    I dont expect anything much after 2 years. Personally I would have been happy with 8.1 which you would have had over a year ago and security updates .
    That would have at least seen the OP3 on January rather than November security patch. If Google don't see fit to update their 2016 offering why are OP waisting their time?
    The outcome of this update I am eager to see, if it's anything like the usual they will have plenty to do after its release.

    lol you are using the Huawei mobile and commenting on Android updates. you are such a joke. I am talking to OnePlus users and Pixel users. you can go and argue with Samsung uses but they have better hardware. the only thing you are better than OnePlus is the battery... please use a feature phone if battery is the only concern for you. Don't argue with OnePlus/Pixel users about the software.

    Why what's the Pie update really going to bring to make it worthwhile to not trade up to a new phone, which will not only be already running Pie but also have a far better processor and screen size etc. Most users are probably like me, content with my device at present and have no real intention of selling until either the battery starts deteriorating or running apps/games tarts to become an issue.

    It might help in future if you preface all your posts thusly, save anyone a different device accidentally reading them.

    Care to come see my camera, no. How about my turbo charge feature in the time your battery fast charges to 60% I hit 4000maH. Oh and did I mention I've got pie

    You might want to reread my posts, not once have I dissed OnePlus' software update policy, hence my regular fanboy label.

    Mainly these features https://www.android.com/versions/pie-9-0/
    Plus those from Oneplus, a little design change to fresh things up...

    lol okay you stick with your points I am not gonna buy another OnePlus device because of the broken promises I think Google might be better at keeping their phones up-to-date

    Hopefully they will have plenty to do as it will then mean there's more updates to download and so support won't cease once we finally get Pie.

    Nah mate.
    The OP7, 7T, 5G and TV are due this year.
    They will also have the 6T,6,5T,5 to service, you will be lucky if you see much else after the next.
    You boys have no sense of reality you had your 2 years be happy with that, flash a rom or sell and move on.
    I've had a iPhone for more years than I can remember and I don't remember a version update after 2 years ever making the device better and I use it for 10hrs a day 5 days a week. ;)

    "The outcome of this update I am eager to see, if it's anything like the usual they will have plenty to do after its release."

    Make your mind up, either they'll have plenty to do or they won't do anything you can't have it both ways. Not really sure who's expecting post Pie the OP3's will be a better device, as I'm not as I doubt a 820 SoC device can run much better than mine does at present. I'm just intrigued to see what another update brings to our devices. If it ruins it then I'll just revert to 5.0.8 which is perfect for my needs at present when I'm using it 16 hours a day 7 days a week.

    Thanks for the guidance about selling my device but whilst the battery holds up I've got better things to do with my hard earned money than needless waste it on a new mobile phone. Plus like most users with an interest in the Pie update I have zero interest in custom ROMS.

    Dude its OP and that means BUGS. I'm not sure what gave you the impression I was expecting anything but.
    I only do custom roms on old devices which yours is,what you will get from OP will not match the most matured customs.
