Samsung’s new Galaxy S24 series smartphones do not revolutionize the market, but there are several reasons to be interested in them. Firstly, the prices of the devices are lower compared to the S23 series. Secondly, you can count on minor improvements, such as larger batteries or 1-120 Hz screens in each model. And thirdly, Samsung has committed to extending the life cycle of these devices, which means that, next to Google Pixels, these will be the longest supported smartphones in the world.
Samsung Galaxy S24 series smartphones are currently the longest supported devices on the market (next to Google Pixels). The question, however, is how many users will actually stick with the same phone for 7 years?
Samsung Galaxy S24, S24+ and S24 Ultra – our first impressions. These smartphones are so nice to look at!
Although it was not entirely certain until yesterday’s premiere of the devices, w press release Samsung has finally confirmed extended support for Galaxy S24 models. Here is the text of the message: “Samsung continues the company’s commitment to extend the product lifecycle by offering 7 generations of operating system updates and 7 years of security updates to enable users to reliably benefit from the optimized performance of Galaxy devices for even longer.”. This means that the models presented yesterday will even receive Android 21 in the future.

Such long support is a great incentive to purchase – it’s good to know that the new device will not become obsolete for the manufacturer even in a few years. However, the question remains: how many users will actually stick with the same phone for so long? Eventually, somewhere in the middle of its life cycle, it may turn out that the battery is failing and there are better, more groundbreaking devices available on the market. Nevertheless, complaining about Samsung’s new policy is completely inappropriate – it’s great that the manufacturer wants to take care of customers loyal to one model. However, we hope that the process of self-repairing a Galaxy smartphone will become easier and more common over time.
