Lol so what a themed gingerbread won't ever become ics/jb you'll never get benefits of project butter or be able to use newer apps built strictly with newer frameworks in mind moreover being on gb also implies that you are Still stuck on buggy kernel 2.6. I'd have to admit that core apps like play store getting updated irrespective of android version is a great thing but still majority of droid population is stuck on gb - and that is after three new versions have been rolled out.
You went through all the hassle of rooting and or flashing Cwm then installing custom rom to get that themed ui (might not bit be a hassle for ya) similarly one can jailbreak to get siri on ip4 whats the big deal in it?
Am not saying apples upgrade policy is superior to other droids out there nor do i intent to imply in anyway that iOS can match the customisability of android - i just wanted to inform you that sgy was a bad choice of buying and even though you are on android you are missing a lot.

apple maps , panoramic photo feature, shared reminders, no wifi plus cellular, and no streaming to itunes match music and few others.

I think for older devices, only core OS is updated so that existing 3rd party apps & new ones will continue to work as intended.

Apple Maps doesn't have turn by turn navigation, but Google Maps has that, correct me if I'm wrong. Same with Panorama, there are nice apps for it.

You have a point regarding missing features, but iPhone 4 still is capable of running most apps and 70% of the games on App Store.

Project butter ??*
do u know anything about kuro,meruk kernels ?
Do you know anything about XDA?
Do you know what is the power of "open source"?

SGY costs just six and half thousand (for new 1)
How much does a new iphone 3gs costs .

OVERCLOCK YOUR IPHONE 3G to run at 1GHZ! - Badcaps Forums

havent i said i wasnt comparing anything just showing you that you are a bit misinformed
Edit : no offense meant nor am i comparing iPhones to sgy just wanted you to realise that you are a bit misinformed!

whatever the names of custom kernels are they are based on 2.6 base only while others are enjoying goodies of a more refines 3.4 version . search for my nick in xda and you'll know what i know of xda . And the power of open source - lawl how can you say so ? - devices like lg l3 (which i believe is the same price range 6k) are enjoying stable ics ports , official cm nightlies etc whereas you are stuck on gb thanks to Samsungs commitment to community :p and there policy of not releasing proprietary blobs .
And please staph this we can argue via pm from now on its already way off topic !

Forget the update life cycles, just think of it as long production runs. The product life cycle itself is long, irrespective of the software support.

Which is good right ? Also one does not need to upgrade every flagship unless he suffers from the deadly disease Compulsive Upgrade Syndrome, if the existing devices works perfectly fine for his needs (not wants).

^^^cupertino giants give each flagship a full year run no matter what before announcing the next

I was just saying that there are people out there who would buy next flagship (may be of same company) irrespective of how much capable their current device is.
Like S2->S3->S4, iPhone4->4S->5 etc etc.

Sorry
I clearly misunderstood you :-(

But who can refuse a free unlimited 2g data and 500mb 3g data for every month for 1 year, with just an droid (SGY )activation.

Don't be sorry you've done nothing to offend me neither was it my intention to argue with you i was just sharing some info which I felt you didn't know.
Anyway cheers for the happy ending :beer:

Am one of them provided I have enough money to spare when the moment arrives. Presently am thinking of ditching my hox for a new beast but in reality I've been completely satisfied with it no regrets whatsoever there's nothing in the market that it can't handle smoothly yet here i am wanting to sell it for new stuff :rolleyes:
