Will it be capable of handling 4 years of Android updates claimed by Samsung or is it just another marketing gimmick?

No, most probably it can't handle 4 yrs of updates. It can't even do multitasking efficiently and heats a lot too.

TechyPuff, "I don't experience much heating, except when playing resource-intensive games. And frankly, any other chip would heat up in similar circumstances. I've noticed many people raise concerns about overheating during heavy gaming, but this is to be expected. It's reminiscent of the complaints about the S21 Exynos version overheating when, in fact, the Snapdragon version also tends to get warm. Just because it's a Snapdragon doesn't mean it won't heat up. Currently, Android 13 paired with One UI 5.1 runs seamlessly on the A53. For those unfamiliar, the A53 has seen significant optimization through updates, performing much better now than at its launch. I believe both the A33 and A53 are equipped to handle 4 years of updates, especially since newer Android versions, like Android 14, introduce fewer changes compared to their predecessors, such as Android 13.

Carl, Exactly, I just don't understand why people say it's laggy or overheats when it runs smoothly for me and it only gets hot when I play Genshin Impact but there isn't a single phone that isn't a gamer that doesn't get hot in Genshin Impact Surely most people don't even try the phone and just hate it because it uses an Exynos chip.

This should be updated because that was before the optimization.
