    I am in the USA and I was going to get a SamSung A10E SmartPhone from TracFone foe $70.00.

    I See on Google it is 3. Years Old.

    But am I Right it will still be ok?

    As long as I get Android 9. or 10 am I Right?

    It comes with v 9. I suspect you might not get an update to 10 because the carrier, Tracfone, rather than the manufacturer, Samsung, pushes the updates.
    I'm not sure when support for v9 will end.

    My 4 year old phone, a Samsung, works fine. Since I rarely surf on it, I'm not concerned that it is not getting android patches. I surf using my cell data rather than wifi.

    Yeah, biferi - what do you plan to use this phone for? I assume you're going to use it for phone calls 99% of the time. Can you get a non-smart phone?
