Support life time for android operating systems
Although, I am not a fan of Microsoft, at least they only have a limited range of operating systems that they support for a reasonable time. The android methodology seems to be to only support an os for a few months; my phone is on a version of android that is three years old, there have been at least three releases of android since my last update and my version does not support all the latest applications.
This partly due to phone manufacturers heavily customising the android os, but does not help the end user. I know that I can root my phone and install the latest version of android, but why should I need to. Would I really want to do this on a car costing £15K to £20K, when if something goes wrong it could brick it?

If you believe that you'll believe anything. The credit bureaux look at a whole raft of things to decide your credit rating! You could be a millionaire, but if you don't have a credit card or had a recent loan, you'll have a poor credit rating and would not get a loan. This was a recent newspaper article about a lottery winner who could not get a buy to let mortgage.
