Samsung promised to do 2 major updates and that's what they have done. I do agree that they are a bit behind in updates. But not as bad as other brands.

Yeah, I know. There are Pie Custom ROMs available so that’s better than nothing. I do agree that it’s stupid that a 2017 phone shipped with 2015 Android and won’t get 2018’s Android update.
