As much as I agree with the previous two posts as concerns battery replacement (and the USB slot through which I have to charge it), I don’t specially agree on the software side.
While I definitely would demand a replaceable battery (and even two USB slots to recharge it, if this is possible, so that even with one broken I can continue), as concerns the OS my experience definitely is ’if it ain’t broke, just don’t upgrade’ -because obviously upgrading will break some apps.
I understand and appreciate there is a fashion effect with many younger consumers that would be pissed off if they can’t join their mates through the latest, brand-new social app which requires the latest OS. And by writing this I hope not harming anyone, I’m not spitting on ‘fart apps’ or things alike: I do understand the need for social apps even though really basic ones are enough for me.
But I’m definitely distinct.
I bought the FP knowing what would work on it and what wouldn’t.
Now it works.
I maintain it this way.
I absolutely don’t intend to restart everything just to have a newer OS -not at all.
What I don’t know is, how many are we from each side on this opinion.
This said, it’s equally obvious, to me, that the next version of the FP gets out with a more recent OS version.
But an obsession about upgrading forever is, how to say it, terribly not my thing.
