Apple's reputation is notably better than Google's

Correction: Apple pays more attention to that particular aspect and Apple’s lawyers are better trained for this particular aspect.

I know of no single Android device

You don’t hear me. LineageOS. Official updates, including critical ones every week, forever. I tested it on my HTC One, 7 years old. LineageOS based on Android 7 was flashed flawlessly in 10 mins.

Apple pays more attention to that particular aspect

And iOS has been found relatively safe when confronted with the desires of law enforcement.

You don’t hear me. LineageOS.

You don't hear me. LineageOS will void your warranty on most Android devices, it is not an officially supported system on most Android devices. Those which "support" it (OnePlus does it, for example) will still be out of service after a year or two.

Show me one Android device with software updates from its vendor that was made in 2013 and did not make you void your warranty to achieve that.

Show me [...]

Why would I show you anything? Why would I need a warranty if for my whole life I never used it for mobile? I can do the math and void warranty costs nothing (unless your phone manufacturer throttles and makes other nasty things or unless I must use 1Oyo devices.)

Do you need a warranty? Fine. It does not save you a dime, but if you need it, continue feeding Apple and G. No issue.

Well if you change a phone every 12 months and you get lucky then you might never need a warranty yeah.

But other people might need it :D

But other people might need it :D

Nope. Do the math yourself. Buying new phone when the old one gets throttled (let me guess: the latter is NOT a warranty case) is still cheaper in the average than paying your privacy for it.

Even if a phone gets once broken (and this is a warranty case, which is the extremely rare one,) it’s still cheaper to buy the new one instead of overpaying for the warranty for the whole life. Otherwise all the insurance companies would get bankrupt.

The thing is the health insurance makes sense because one usually cannot afford the required surgery. You pay for your patience. The phone is not something one cannot afford. Do the math, it always helps to make decisions.

Even if a phone gets once broken (...) it’s still cheaper to buy the new one

I wish I had your income.

Premium phones are north of 700€ right now, repairs don't usually cost as much. Also most people buy them with subscriptions so they aren't actually shelling the whole phone price up front.

Probably your math holds up with cheaper phones but still, regular people are not going to flash their own phones anytime soon so I feel this argument is a little pointless :-)

I wish I had your income.

If you were reading what I say, before throwing your arguments out, you might have noticed: I entered the thread with mentioning no-names.

Somewhat like this (I clicked the first item in DuckDuckGo search results.

Mine is slightly more expensive, for dual camera, 128G and 8 cores, but it’s still under $300.

Yes, I can afford this once when the phone gets broken by a warranty case (once per our life, actually, in average.)

This is the first link I found at DuckDuckGo that sells phones. BTW, I bought last four of my phones there.

Why would I show you anything?

You claimed that I was wrong. Now you admit that I was right because you misunderstood me. All is fine now. :-)

Do you need a warranty?

I needed one once and I was happy to have one. I'd like to be relatively sure that a device that costs me half a month's worth of money will theoretically be supported until I voluntarily replace it. Even CyanogenMod can't do that.

It does not save you a dime, but if you need it, continue feeding Apple and G.

I fail to understand your relatively rude tone now. Did I hurt you?

Now you admit that I was right because you misunderstood me.
I fail to understand your relatively rude tone now. Did I hurt you?

I fail to understand both how were you right and how my tone is rude.

how were you right

That no Android device has a warranty for officially supported OS updates even remotely as long as iPhones do.

how my tone is rude

I guessed so.
