Can I get some help getting a better understanding of some General Android Updates And Alerts?

This is NOT meant to become a battle between Apple vs Android, but I am thinking about buying a Samsung Galaxy S5 after using only Apply products and I'm a bit confused and cautious. First, let me say that I love how easy it is to update my current Apple phone- I get an alert saying, "Hey, it's time to update" and I click a button and it does its thing while I do mine. Somewhere along my research of Android products and software, I keep reading that updates for new OS's take months for some phones versus others, that some phones are jailbroken for types of updates, that certain things update independently from others on Android phones...and I'm am overwhelmed and confused. I have my heart set on the S5, but I love the simplicity of Apple since I'm not tech-savvy and really don't plan on using my phone for more than basic things- music, pictures (point and click, nothing fancy), a few games, financial tracking, mild internet surfacing, mild texting, and phone calls. Can someone please explain things to me?
