There are users who have thousands of euros to spend on smartphones every year, and who can change mobile phones every so often. However, the truth is that normally, we do not have money to change mobile phones many times, so our smartphones are first very new mobiles, but with the passage of time they begin to be smartphones of a worse level, because they are launched much better mobiles. That is why users want to update their phones, because somehow, they believe that they can get news on their mobile even if they do not buy a new one. However, is that really the best?
Updates that degrade performance
There are updates that come with improvements in performance, but the truth is that they are not usually common. It was for example Android 4.4 KitKat, a version with which good performance was obtained with RAM of only 512 MB. However, usually a mobile is launched with firmware optimized for it, and any firmware update usually comes with a worse optimization for the smartphone, especially when it is a large update. So, is it better to update or not to update a smartphone?
Do you have a key problem on your smartphone whose solution is included in the update? Then the best thing is that you update, obviously. If this is not the case, and it is simply an update to a new version of Android, while your mobile already works perfectly, then it is when you should think that perhaps it is not the best to update. It is very likely that in the end you want to update, but since your mobile works well, the best you can do is wait a month at least. So you can see the opinions of the users once the mobile has been updated. On many occasions you will see that users say that the update has worsened the performance of the mobile, on other occasions you will see that the mobile remains the same. And even sometimes the mobile will work better. If it is either of these last two cases, then updating might be a good idea, but if the mobile has gotten worse after updating, then it is better to update.
