Re: No More Security Updates

2 years, is that it?!  No wonder Apple repeatedly mock the Android side for this potential botnet of vulnerable devices.  Really needs to be 3 minimum as most contracts are 2 years and not everyone buys a new contract the day a particular handset is released, leaving them vulnerable before their contract is even over!

 

I guess the G5 is mostly bought as a PAYG phone, and that it's a budget device etc but still.  It shouldn't be such a throwaway item, especially with how much we need to reduce our consumption to continue being able to live on this planet.

Re: No More Security Updates

The only Android phones with a guarantee of regular updates (security and operating system) for 3 years after release are the Pixel phones from Google. Phones in the Android One program have some sort of lesser guarantee, or at least they used to. Even expensive phones from Samsung and other vendors have no guarantees.

 

Apple updates its iPhones for something like 5 years, but Siri is much weaker than Google Assistant.

Re: No More Security Updates

The Android One website guarantees 2 years of OS updates. That's it. No guarantee regarding security updates.

The Pixel website guarantees 3 years of OS updates and 3 years of security updates.
