Almost 6 years old, and @Fairphone are still pushing the Fairphone 2 by porting Android 9 to it:

That's a big proof of longevity here, kudos to you all!

@AugierLe42e @Fairphone remember the FP2 was first offered with Android 5. I know no other phone updated to *4* major versions.

This is not uncommon in the world of custom ROMs. My Galaxy S5 was delivered with Android 4.2.1 and now runs LineageOS 16.1, which is Android 9.
Recently I read that even LineageOS 17.1, i.e. Android 10 is in preparation for the S5.
The difference is that these updates are unfortunately not provided by Samsung...

@AugierLe42e @Fairphone

@oausi @fla @AugierLe42e @Fairphone If you count custom ROMs: Lineage 17.1 has been available for the FP2 for quite some time now.

I'd say the big news here is that the original manufacturer provides the update.
