When Android launches a new version of its operating system, the users of the green robot look forward to its terminal receiving it as soon as possible. There are brands that are a little faster than others, since they do not have to adapt their layer to the improvements that come from Android. These are, for example, Pixel phones, Lenovo Moto or OnePlus, terminals that have pure Android or a practically identical version of the operating system. Samsung, for example, even though it keeps Android on its phones, it maintains its own layer called Touchwiz, which increases the user experience. This is why Samsung takes its time to update phones.
