Samsung surprises, now affordable Galaxy devices will also receive 5-year software support [List]



Last year, Samsung made a major announcement recognizing the significance of maintaining up-to-date smartphones. In recent times, customers have also been considering this aspect while selecting their devices. Accordingly, the company revealed that certain models would receive as many as four updates of the Android operating system and five years of security patches.

Samsung surprises by announcing the extended Android OS and security support updates for affordable devices. Recently the Galaxy A24 launch in some market and it will get four Android updates and five years of security updates, which is similar to the flagship devices. This indicates that the company is now focusing on improving the after-sell for low-cost devices as well.

How will it impact you?

Let’s compare the market size of customers who buy flagship devices. There is a large number of users who like to buy affordable smartphones, so Samsung is considering that it will be a very good marketing stunt because nowadays, customers check this parameter as well. If the company expands this policy to other affordable devices so it will be beneficiary to you because then you don’t have to think about future software support and can immediately buy any device according to other specifications.

Regular updates are also important.

For the flagship devices, Samsung provides regular, monthly updates and new Android updates in the initial phase of its availability, but for the other devices, there is no fixed timing; it may take up to two months to reach. But it will be worth seeing whether Samsung makes any changes to the affordable device or not. However, in the race for quick availability of software updates, no one can beat Apple because it rolls out the update to every device as soon as it is available.

The main reason for the slow update rolls out by Samsung is that the company doesn’t make its own OS; it only depends on Google, first Google releases the update, then it handover to Samsung, and then Samsung makes changes and adds some new features through its latest One UI skin and then distribute to different devices, for the flagship device, the company pushes full-fledged version, but for low-end devices, it released a lite version of the UI in the term of the core.

Samsung Galaxy AI’s Circle to Search Could Soon Get a new Upgrade




Samsung introduced its Galaxy AI, which consists of several generative AI features. Circle to Search with Google is one of the most admired features. Now, it may soon get a major upgrade based on comments made in a recent Made by Google Podcast episode. 

The Circle to Search with Google feature is available on both Galaxy S24 and Pixel 8 devices, and reports are saying that soon it could get a big usability upgrade and become a bit harder to trigger by accident. The forthcoming changes will be based on comments made in a recent Made by Google Podcast episode, in which host Rachid Finge spoke with Erin Lynch and Alistair Pott, who worked with the Circle to Search development team. 

During the podcast, Lynch admits that the circle to search with was quite easy to activate by accidental touches as it’s located on the same gesture bar or home button that users use for other purposes most of the time. Regarding this, she and Pott assured that Google was working to fix it to avoid accidentally activating this feature; however, they didn’t elaborate on the assurance. 

However, the Circle to Search feature already received an update that gives it the power to translate circled text. It is expected that the future update could be a combined search and lens results page while using the Circle to Search feature instead of having them separate as they are now. 

Apart from this, the podcast unveiled a few interesting twists regarding how Circle to Search came to be. It came to light that it is based on Google Lens and has been in development since January 2023, after Google staffers were actively working on how Lens became more readily available outside its app.

Samsung Ecosystem Matching Apple’s Tight Integration



Samsung offers a unique ecosystem that delivers a distinct experience as compared to its competitor, Apple. 

Samsung has its own OG (original) ecosystem and is even better than its rival Apple in functionality. It’s not just a phrase, but here we are mentioning some of the key reasons why, in many ways, it’s better. However, Samsung lagged behind Apple in delivering a coordinated ecosystem with well-designed gadgets, but that doesn’t mean Samsung has a lack of willpower. 

Now, Samsung has covered the gap in some areas and even exceeded Apple in others. Check out the key facts mentioned below:

Samsung’s versatility over Apple 

From then to now, Apple has only offered limited models, tons of monopolies, and high-budget. On the other hand, Samsung offers dozens of phones in any size and budget you could prefer. The same fact is true of tablets: Apple’s lineup has gotten more complex, but Samsung is still offering more options. 

Samsung has an extra lineup: ‘Foldable phones’ – 

Samsung offers dozens of foldable phones; one is a book-style foldable, and the other is a flip, such as the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and the Galaxy Z Flip 5. Also, we are gearing up for the latest Galaxy Z Fold 6 series. Whereas Apple has yet to offer its very first foldable device. Samsung even offers a phone with a built-in stylus, the Galaxy S Ultra’. Apple does not do that sort of thing, ever. 

Samsung offers one Galaxy for every Apple device

Samsung offers one Galaxy for each Apple device; for instance, for the Apple Watch, Samsung offers the Galaxy Watch; for AirPods, there’s the Galaxy Buds; for MacBooks, Samsung laptops run Windows; or you can launch Samsung DeX on a Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra. Both brands offer monitors, keyboards, and mice. Somehow, Samsung lacks a VR headset compared to Apple’s Vision Pro, but its ecosystem expands to smart home appliances and even TVs. 

Galaxy’ are more compatible than Apple devices.

Comparing the latest devices of both brands, the iPhone 15 Pro Max and the Galaxy S24 Ultra, Samsung offers a better display, more RAM, and faster charging speeds than the iPhone 15 Pro Max. 

Jumping on tablets! Galaxy S9 Ultra versus iPad Pro: Samsung offers a 14.6-inch display, whereas Apple offers a 12.9-inch. It is crystal clear that Samsung is winning here. 

Samsung’s Galaxy devices are now capable of delivering similar smooth connectivity features as Apple’s. Both Apple and Samsung’s ecosystems let you share files, switch audio between devices, and more; the only difference appears in the way of functionality or features’ names.

Samsung has more features than Apple

Samsung offers more features as compared to Apple; for instance, Samsung’s DeX offers a desktop-like experience on phones and tablets and multitasking with features like resizable windows, app minimization, and a taskbar. Samsung prioritizes a UI to optimize multitasking, whereas Apple boasts a supreme app ecosystem. Samsung has yet to offer a traditional desktop operating system; currently, it integrates heavily with Microsoft’s. 

Unlike Apple’s focus on supreme integration within its ecosystem, Samsung prefers to go with quality devices that are capable of performing well independently. Samsung avoids monopolies; you can seamlessly connect your Galaxy devices with non-Galaxy devices like Windows PCs. 

These are key facts that transparently prove Samsung’s ecosystem is far better than Apple’s.
