OnePlus Nord N series will on receive One Android Update

    Maybe so but it has received two OS updates so far and Android 11 is coming next year. Personally, I think it's still inexcusable of OnePlus to do this whilst other manufacturers like Samsung are offering more updates even on lower range phones.

    Android go devices receive updates directly from google, not nokia or any other oem.
    The nord N series are not android go devices.
    You cant compare both devices on software updates
    In my work we have low range samsung devices and sometimes they dont even get one mayor android update

    I know that, but it is unfair to n10 and n100 users

    I dont see any low end device on that list.
    The a series can compete with the pixel a seires and the nord.
    My friend that works with me has a samsumg J something, and as far as I know, he never got a mayor update. I got a Moto g6 play and I only got one mayour update so far.
    That is why you shoud research better before buying, and choose the device that better suits your needs.
    Nobody is forcing anyone to buy a device, you choose freely and you will need to live with that choice

    I consider A51 as a budget model and even it creates more value if to consider future software support unlike N10 5G. Like seriously it costs $170 for 4/64. Who in their mind would give 3 android updates to it? As I see Samsung would for some reason... Pixel 4A overall is a more charged choice by all criteria, not to mention Poco F2 Pro. And they both cost less!!!

    If fact N10 5G is an ULTRA overpriced phone for proposed specs/support combo, it's stillborn. N100 is just... I'm lost in ideas of how to properly name it, lets just call it "never buy this garbage". OnePlus conducted an extremely miserable marketing price policy for these 2.

    I hope that these budget OnePlus phones won't shoot and their future iterations will be buried already at the planning stage.

    I have a OnePlus 7T and my wife has a OnePlus 7T. I hoped to get my two daughters OnePlus phones this Christmas, but one Android update (to an Android OS that is available now on Pixel phones), I won't be going with the N100. My eldest daughter already has a Nokia 6.1, that is still receiving updates, but she asked for a new phone for Christmas. Looks like I will be waiting for the Nokia 6.3 later this month or get a couple Pixel 4a phones on Black Friday sales.

    What drew me to OnePlus doesn't seem to be what OnePlus wants to offer anymore. Hopefully someone will come along and fill the space that OnePlus recognized was there years ago.

    I don't believe it was ever stated anywhere when buying the Nord N10/100 that they would receive a reduced update timeline. So it would be reasonable to have assumed that they would follow the public 3 year support timeline that other 1+ devices have.

    If they are offering a reduced timetable for different devices they need to make this explicit when purchasing it or put out a post explaining the criteria for which devices will get it. Otherwise we could see a situation, for example, when the 9 is released that it will only get say 2 years of updates with nothing mentioned when purchasing as everyone presumed the 3 year support applied to it.

    So you're saying to just let the once proud smartphone industry-disrupting OnePlus to enter the short life cycle market segment of smartphones and contribute to e-waste? Or are you telling me that these practices aren't anti-security, anti-consumer, and anti-environment? And I thought OnePlus was a manufacturer that built its entire business around its community and this community includes the N10 users (I can tolerate the N100 being thrown under the bus bec of it's price). Maybe I was wrong.

    There's a reason why the android community praises responsible manufacturers (1, 2, 3, 4) while shunning those that try to shortchange the android experience (5, 6, 7, 8, 9).

    Motorola is one of the known brands that have a 1 major platform update and 2 year security update policy even in their flagship models as Android Central once pointed out. This company eventually caved in to negative publicity and extended their flagship-only support. Going to Samsung, the Galaxy A-series indeed competes with the Nord series with the N10 against the A51 and this Sammy phone gets three years of platform support (verified up to Android 13) plus two years of security patches. The rest of the budget-oriented A-series (i.e A21, A31, etc) will get extended support if hardware allows (via The Verge).
    Side question: Do people really think the Nord N10 is a low-end device with that price tag and specs?

    You get what you pay for at over £300? That is a very flippant comment, shame on you.

    This is another throw away statement you can't not substantiate, but I will offer some data in print.




    So which J series is it you are referring to?

    Again, you get what you paid for, if you buy a device, you should do a research first.
    In any place I say that is correct or that I'm agree with it

    I never spoke about prices, and most certainly had cost more than what you think, phone in other parts of the world are not so cheap as where you live. I replied to a commnet that said this

    I gave an example of a lower range device where this did not happened.

    I also gave another example, I have a moto g series, and only got one mayor update and last security update was in april this year. I dont think that I will get any more updates for this one.
    This moto g6 play had a price of $10600 (pesos) that was about $400 US

    Yeah, and you know what we all remember back from 2016 besides the J2, don't you? OnePlus 2 didn't get the PROMISED A7... Sorry but OP 2 owners couldn't have done the research first 😂🍿🤭

    I dont remember what was the update policy back then when the device was launched, I think it was two years of support, but yes, it was promised an android version that never was released.
    I skiped the oneplus 2 and 3 and went form the one to the 3t
