samsung has already started offering 4 years of updates, that's the best update policy in the android space. google doesn't even do that for their own pixel devices which is disappointing.

4 years is a good start. But frankly for a $1000+ USD item, 4 years is still a sad joke.

7 to 10 years is more around a reasonable lifespan for a 1k+ piece of electronic, for now.

As time will pass and the platform continues to plateau, people will want to keep their devices longer and longer.
By then 10 years will merely sound borderline reasonable.

I kept my 1st smartphone 7 years, went from S1 to S7, I expect the S7 to last me around 10 years at the current pace, so at 5 years now it's only at half-life yet.

I used to keep my computers for 2-3 years max, then rate of performance advancement dropped gradually.
I'm now at around 8 years between upgrades for the same 4x performance increase at the same price.

To think when I was born in the 1980s if something lasted less than 20 years it was considered a scam and you were a fool to buy it.
Most electric and electronic appliances lasted for 3-4+ decades and were only changed because of decoration/fashion choices, not because they broke down.

Anyways, this incredibly dumb and self-destructive use and dump cyclical consumption waste culture bullshit has to stop someday if we want to successfully to tackle the challenges of the 21st century.
