Monthly security updates for your next Android phone

One piece of advice, if I may. When you buy your next Android phone, don't be lured by the best camera in the world. That won't last long. Rather look at the software situation. Android One, here a Motorola, and Google phones get prompt updates. Samsung has also gotten rather good at providing timely updates.

Major upgrades are different thing. The closer the software is to straight and pure Android, the faster and more likely is a major upgrade. Google wins, Android One is second, and then there is a very long tail. Do your research.

Do you hear much about updates for Nokia phones? I'm seeing mixed results. 8.1 still on the May security update and some lower end phones on the June update.
