What actual facts? I didn't see them. You said they have something like removable batteries. I'm not sure what that has to do with the question. Apple's advertising said their phones last longer? I've never seen such an ad. I just have a 4 year old iPhone to go by, no one told me what to say. I also have a long, horrible, track record with Samsung phones. That's what I'm going by, not marketing claims.

Who said the bolded part? Oh right, no one. Why do you have such trouble sticking to the truth when it comes to Apple?

People simply correctly pointed out actual facts. Like the fact that Apple has a solid record of provided iOS updates for older devices. And the fact that you can drag in a several generations old iPhone to your local Apple store (or send it in) and they'll fix it. Or if you're feeling inclined to do it yourself, it's easy to get the parts and make the repairs yourself.

If you were to pay more attention to my posts then you'd know that I'm not even a fan of Samsung.

Everyone knows that any iOS update on a device that's older than two years gimps the phone severely.

Also, a phone that's going to last you for 5 years needs to be futureproof. 1gb of RAM isn't futureproof, it was in 2011.

I did not know that. My older phone works with the latest update. My iPhone 4 is on iOS 7.x.x though. It came with iOS 4, or was it 5, so it has been fully updated and works perfectly.

Why wouldn't a phone with only 1 GB work after 5 years? That makes no sense. No old phone ever made is future proof, whatever that means.

Traditionally, iOS updates have bogged down older iPhones. Android updates used to do the same, however since Android 2.3, this has gone away. Android 5.0 actually provided a significant performance increase to older phones.

That doesn't mean that this trend will remain true in the future. Anything is possible.

Like I said, it ain't true anymore, if it ever was. I've never had either of them bog down during updates. The iPad 2 did with iOS 8, but they have fixed that.
