Re: Maybe not so niche?
You also forgot the shitfest that is Samsung delivering updates for a device right up to the day they EOL the thing, and then you are boned regardless of how much useful life is left in the thing. I have an elderly Note8 from 2013-ish that the stock firmware stopped getting updated right around 18 months after getting it. Lineage... walks on it, rather than runs. (and is missing a bunch of useful features, like the stylus and usable sound)
