Samsungs are great if you can stomach TouchWiz and don't care about software updates.

I don't have problems with TouchWiz on my Note4. Not sure what you mean about software updates; the frequency of the updates has more to do with the carrier. The last update pushed to my phone is 6.0.1.

No, it has to do with the manufacturer.

Buying from Google with their phones means you get every OS major update for 2 years and a security update monthly. As a contrast, my wife's Note 8 (lastest model introduced last year) still has not gotten Android Oreo (v8, introduced six months ago), and her security updates come every 2-3 months. My Pixel 2 XL is running Android Oreo v8.1.
