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

Re: Not supporting updates?

Chances are 75% of the Andriod phones in use don't either

Exactly. I don't know why they would consider this to be a big problem for used phones when the majority of the Android phones in use are no longer receiving updates.

If there were places selling NEW phones that were already unsupported software-wise I would think that's terrible, but if they can't sell used phones that are no longer supported they'd have to throw most of their stock older than two years in the landfill.
