It's a well-established fact at this point that Google's support system is terrible, especially for developers creating apps on the Google Play Store.

Samsung will sell replacement parts for Galaxy phones and tablets

Tech companies love to tout how their products are more friendly to the environment, but it often amounts to little more than marketing.
