    Looking for a phone that can accept app updates for at least 4 years from now. My samsung choices are galaxy grand prime and the other being J1 (2016), but I am wondering If it can accept app updates for about 4 years from now. Because I want to make sure that I will be able to use apps like uber taxi and receive flash updates etc.. till that time?

    Welcome.

    App updates are up to the app developer. There's no way we can predict what or how many apps are going to drop support for today's API level over the next 4 years.

    OS updates I can all but 100% guarantee the device won't get new updates after 18 months or so - you're looking at budget Samsung devices, some of the WORST as far as getting long-term OS and security updates.
