About Samsung supposedly supporting their products. I had a Galaxy S for over two years, and not once did it ever receive an update either OTA or via Kies. It would always give "No updates are available for this device.". The phone was bought in the UK, but was used mostly in China.

It originally came with 2.1 Eclair. I was able to update it to 2.3 Gingerbread myself because of CyanogenMod, and NOT because of Samsung.

So do I. It was a broken screen that ended my Galaxy S, not because it was out of date or unfashionable or whatever. I would have probably kept it for another year or so.

In China, usually it's no problem at all to find batteries, accessories, covers, etc.

I actually just bought a new Lenovo laptop last week.. Because I wanted a solid dependable machine with good support.

I bet outside of Asia, many people wouldn't even realise that Lenovo makes phones.
