In the market for a second-hand phone? Check it's still supported by the vendor – almost a third sold are not

Re: It is worth pointing out

And my HP laptop from 2008 is running Windows 10 and still getting updates. If I so chose, I could also easily install Linux on this laptop (with the loss of one accessory I don't use anyway) and get security updates. My last two phones before the current one, both in the last 8 years - no way. No support from the vendors, and no alternative OS's for these models. The Samsung, in particular, only got just over 1 year of security updates.

This is just a disgraceful waste of resources. EPIC FAIL.
