    I've heard of some security issues, but I'd like to know from this community if they've really been THAT bad/catastrophic, or annoyances that you were either able to deal with, or that you get a newer released phone anyways.

    .

    For me, I haven't really noticed much "bad stuff"....

    I've had a Samsung Galaxy s2 that went from android 2.3.4 to 2.3.6.
    Later on, a Samsung Galaxy s4 that went from either 4.3 or 4.4 to 4.4.4
    Now, an LG G4 that went from 5.1 to 6.0

    I've never had a large desire to go to the next major release for any given phone (major being x.0). I did do research that indicated T-Mobil does go to 6.x with their LG G4. However, I'm not so sure I want to try out Nougat/7.x, as I tend to stick with a "why fix it if it isn't broken" approach. I was actually fine with 4.4.4 on my gs4 until a botched repair job pushed me to upgrade the phone.

    .

    With iOS, I started off on an Ipod Touch 3. Went from ios3 to ios4 since that's where they introduced the ability to create folders. Then to ios5 IIRC.

    For the IpT4 and IpT5, I updated to the next version of iOS from the default, earliest one (so ios5 and ios7 respectively) even though Apple officially supported beyond that. Again, why fix it if it isn't broken? Furthermore, most of the features were for iPhones anyways, and I especially didn't want to risk taking a performance hit on my IpT5 with ios8.
