Security patches, yes I agree they're getting a bit old now, it's recommended they're updated at least once every 3 months.
I'm a disgruntled Pixel owner who moved over to Oppo. Wise decision - I hope so.
I've never owned a pixel device except the pixel 1 that lasted the full 2 year term of my contract.
Pixel 2 XL, I had like 5 of them 4 of them developed faults with the charging board and smashed one screen, Pixel 3 nuked it's self after a firmware update... Pixel 4... The batteries were awful, ended up doing a insurance claim and swapped for a Samsung Note 10 5g, I'd given up on Google devices. My partner has the Pixel 5 and she's more than happy with it & she's had it since it launched, the 6... I wasn't sure about the Tensor chipset.

I wasn't sure about the Tensor chipset.
I think that the Pixel 6 in support and updates are unmatched by oppo. I know Oppo from Find 7. Updates were very slow. The problem is they want to update a lot of smartphone at the same time, but they can't. Find X3 neo, Lite and Reno needed to be updated after X3 pro(scheduled update first part of 2022). Instead they started the updates. As result, updates very slowly for all and a lot of find X3 pro has no updated and with october at best november security patch. Also color-os 12 (c.37 and c.39) has the october and november security patches. IOT december security patch, wait the C41 update. As usual oppo's mess

I think ideal solution would be to put all people complaining here to be in the first deplyment wave. Everyone wins, certinly Oppo with newly recruited testers.

I find it really amazing how much one or the other complains and complains as if their life depends on this update. Constructive criticism makes sense, but switching this talk to another manufacturer is annoying. Just do it and keep quiet because nobody wants to know.

Well people have the freedom to express their views, experiences and compare to other manufacturers.

It's not the end of the world no, however it's also not acceptable when A. Said company says they will deliver a patch/security patch each month for their flagship only to drop the ball neigh on immediately and make cr*p excuses as to why and B. When they are lagging behind other manufacturers I mean Sony & Samsung have gotten theirs out to flagships and mid range phones.

Yet here some of us are 2 months+ out of date.

I complain a lot because I paid a LOT for the phone and those updates were promised until it magically disappeared and that effected the decision making for the purchase.

I use my handset for everything including my workplace (I work in IT) and due to the data we store/access the devices local storage need to be encrypted as well as being up to date on Security patched too, not 2, 3, 4 months out of date :/ .

That's why I'm vocal about it, I don't and didn't need to explain myself but chose to so I don't come across as being one of these uncompramising, keyboard warriors 😂.

But at the end of the day I've paid a lot for the device, part of the marketing/site info was clearly not true and that would have potentially Influenced that, same with them also disappearing the LTPO part of the Screen section 😅.

Ontop of that I'm expecting these patches to fix known bugs and irritating issues, but in the meantime having to just deal with them.

I do really like the phone the camera's are amazing next to none! UI feels great, feature set is great along with the charging speeds and how nice the Phone feels and looks physically.

So it's a shame that they are dropping the ball and just vaguely saying eventually it will come when other manufacturers are already there.

They want to charge a premium and compete with other premium manufacturers like Samsung etc then they need to be justifying and earning that premium cash, competing on all fronts including software development, patches and OS updates.

I think that with this explanation and analisys you well summarized the feelings of many users in this thread.
OPPO is failing to deliver on their promises, but also lacking in transparency. Is infuriating how their social accounts are still pushing the "magic" of ColorOS12 when in reality very few have seen it. Marketing stunts that I hope will have an impact on their future sales in the west world.

That is the exactly feeling. Even if all of us are not in the IT for work.
We pay a lot and we expect a lot. That is what a flagship phone have to be.
If they set half of the price they sold the phone, was totally understandable, but the price was a proper flagship one, and the software support need to have a flagship support.

thank you very much your pseudo-intellectual reaction made me very happy.
You are an enrichment for this website, I would almost say that your contributions consisting of crying and complaining are indispensable.
Thank you for all ❤️
Glad of it. I am also very happy to read your posts. Yours are an enrichment too. Kindness aside, have you received any security patch updates or are you stuck in November or October?

    👍 I may return with future update news going forward for those who would welcome it, but meh... If I do, I'm not correcting heresay or stupid, I'm not going to dignify petulant rants with a response.
    My source is not just a customer service rep or a Twitter bot, it's from the team developing these updates.
    I forgot how tedious it was to be part of the tech community.

    So what you're saying is that the OTA files exist and Oppo doesn't want anyone getting their hands on it? Btw would you be able to post the full file name by any chance I may have an Idea thanks
    File is CPH2173_11_C_OTA_1410_all_ad8023_10001010

    What I am saying is this version is in testing. As you will see the number is quite ahead of the version that's gone live in other markets. It may fail testing and require another build.

    I would be breaking the terms of my employment by sharing so I don't want to share until official. As soon as I get the go ahead will share google drive link here.

    I'm back with some vague news.
    The rollout is / was delayed due to "stability issues" & GUI needed some minor tweaks.
    Apparently areas of Guangdong / Shenzhen have been put into rolling lockdowns recently that may further hamper their progress.
    Was unable to get any clarification on what this means in an ETA for us, but I've been assured it's a number 1 priority.
