Updating nexus records


Ideally, Google starts taking a much harder line with manufacturers who put Android on their phones.

They could for example maintain and publish a list of phone models that are kept up to date with the latest security fixes, and a list of those that aren’t.

The i Phone 5 is still being kept up to date with i OS 10.

Furthermore, in terms of phone encryption, i OS 4, released 6 years ago, was already more advanced than than Android 7 Nougat, released in August of this year.

I was happy to see that at least Huawei has a pretty good record in terms of keeping their Android phones up to date (although the results were probably skewed as they counted the Huawei-produced Nexus 6P phones, and these formed the majority of the test set, doh).
