With Google’s Android O release expected to arrive any week now, the question on everyone’s mind is: When will my phone get Android O?
It’s a common question here in the land o’ Android — and unfortunately, it’s become a tough one to answer. After years of missed deadlines and broken promises, most Android manufacturers have just stopped making specific commitments altogether. (Hey, that’s one way to handle it, right?) And most of ’em, as I’ve learned from closely tracking upgrade delivery performance since Android’s earliest days, do a pretty shoddy job at getting new software into users’ hands.
