The results are out! Android software updates: how happy are you with your manufacturer?32
The situation is quite grim, according to our readership. Only a quarter (24.39%) of you are satisfied with how well your manufacturer of choice is handling Android updates, which is a rather poor showing no matter how you look at it. In contrast, 41.33% are rather neutral -- its not all bad, but there's definitely room for improvement. Lastly, a significant portion of poll-takers -- 34.28% -- are livid with their manufacturer.
Obviously, we feel obligated to point out that it would be unfair to point the finger solely at the companies behind the products we use -- do keep in mind that your carrier is also a big hurdle on the path to swift updates. New software has to go through extensive testing at, say, AT&T's labs, and that's a considerable deterrent. That said, we're still hoping that a bright fellow at Google will, one day, figure out a way for Android to stay up-to-date across the entire spectrum of devices.
