c'est la vie ( France )In my case because of OTA Updates. My an my family's phones are tools - not toys. I bought some of these Redmi note 4 phones for us (by the way still in LOS Top Ten) because we needed reliable, up to date and privacy respecting phones that simply work. LOS (without Gapps) meets all of our requirements.
OTA-updates are very important to me. I don't have the time (and mood) to manually update all our phones every and every month again. With OTA-Updates available security updates are done with two finger touchs. Even my grandparents can do that on their own.
I am massively disappointed how this still very popular device is dropped by the LOS people. According to what I've read, the lack of official support is largely based on interpersonal problems. What kind of kindergarten is this? (I explicitly don't blame Aryan, but certain other people from LOS!) Please overcome your differences for the sake of your users!
