    This is the last post from me from my OP5 before it finds a new owner on eBay, iOS beckons with 4+ years of proper support (and yes I'm aware of the downsides of apple world). I was a huge OP supporter but unfortunately OP have become increasingly known for buggy releases and increasingly poor support as a phone ages. Year 1 was pretty good, year 2 much slower on updates and year 3 even security updates were taking 6+ months. It's a problem for the entire Android platform ( other than pixel and increasingly Samsung phones) but it's unfortunate as my OP5 is still a fast handset but I'm forced to upgrade due to OS not being updated. I can't see myself coming back to the brand even if I return to Android. I see OP sales are up in the EU so clearly something is resonating with the punters but I would be interested to see repeat buying stats after 1st purchase.

    I do and I'm technical enough to install them but just all seems a bit like too much hassle!

    totally agree with you. but y know we are welcome to install custom android 11.
    Do you know how? I don't to be honest.
    but why do you need new fancy futures, we have old phone.
    get a new one you will get new futures.
    you don't need security updates, you have telegram? signal?
    you are good to go.

    better get more money man and buy new phone every 2 years.

    Do you honestly think one plus is going to share that information ?

    You clearly didn't read my original post. I said the quality of the updates in year 2 and 3 were poor. I clearly accept a phone cannot be supported for ever but they should do quality and timely updates until end of year 3.
