Galaxy A8 2018 MUST Get Android 10 - Petition

Samsung's update policy, which means every phone gets 2 major updates MUST change. The Galaxy A8 2018 launched in January 2018 with nougat, before the s9 and Oreo while the j7 duo launched 2 months later with Oreo . This means the j7 duo, sold at exactly the same time as the A8, probably for half the price, will get android 10 while the A8 will not. Also, most A8 owners bought it after Oreo rolled out, 2-3 months later so not updating the phone to the newest version on android and making it a year's update before a worse phone should not be acceptable. And this may happen just because it was launched with a 1.5 year old os and had it for about 2 months. The Samsung update policy of 2 years is a lie for the A8 and a 2017 devices - it is more like only 1⅓ years of updates. Also there is nothing that the A6 2018 and all of the 2018 j series do better than the a8, despite all being sold at the same time and they will get android 10. Last year there was a similar petition for A 2017 devices to get pie, but Samsung didnt update them. Hopefully they do read this and learn that they won't make more sales of newer devices if they don't update older ones - it would just further damage their reputation. We must convince them to do this not just for the A8, but other devices like the S8 and note8 and for future updates as well. Android 10 will not roll out to Samsung devices for months, but if this is started now we can let them know early on so they have no excuses of not having enough time to make a new update, etc

You should look at the hardware and not just the ridiculous two years of support, galaxy A8 meets minimal requirements. Waiting for news.

I have been a die hard consumer of Samsung products. Phones, Tablets, etc..

Only now am being aware of this policy. The next phone I will buy, definitely not going to be samsung. I will not buy their product again.

It is a cell phone of good quality in hardware and design, a Samsung emblem A-series cell phone deserves an update to Android 10.

Today I looked at a galaxy a10 with 2 GB of ram with android 10 and the galaxy A8 is still with android 9?? Change the ridiculous two-year policy. The galaxy A8 is a good device.

Thanks for your work highlighting these fact's as I've had the very same arguments as I had the very same phone and this caused me to sell my A8 and fortunately I came across the new Samsung galaxy A05s the very month was released, my only mistake is that I should have researched more as a month after buying new a05s, I bought the Redmi note 12, now wow what a phone for a low tier phone it's good very good I did full research on this phone and ALL THE TEST PROVED that it was rated a better phone over all than A50 A54, and many of the mid range phone's. Not bad for a phone that cost only £150,00p new I got the A05s for £130,00p I rate both phone's and I would be lost without the both to be very honest now ppl all aspire to the top phones that cost the world but only do just the same as any mid ! - low range phone will , just better looking with bells and whistles on so FORGET THE PRICE TAG, and go for phones that work for the individual whom the phone is for!... ‼️ 🔥 🫡.
