Have you ever talked to phone shop staff? Most of the time the customer has more idea about the products on show than the staff do.
Updates are a valid concern, I don't know why people here like to pretend that they aren't, although they can be a double edged sword sometimes. I bought a HTC Sensation when that came out, and the last update killed it, as the hardware just wasn't able to cope with the new Android features as well as Sense.
Luckily I managed to ditch it pretty early and I have had a Sony Xperia S for a long time, which has been great. I have had several updates from Sony and they have all worked just fine.
That Apple handle updates pretty well is one of the positives of their platform, but there are many negatives too, and you can't just look at one issue in isolation and make a decision based on that of course.
