fcrisantiI would suggest going for a OnePlus phone instead. I'm the same as you, since software updates are also important for me. Next time go for a OnePlus phone instead, even the OnePlus 5 which started off with only Android 7 got Android 10 now
The upgrade of the Zenfone 5 to Android 10 would make me consider buying in a near future a Zenfone 6 or even 7 when released. Software updates are an important factor for me.
