Google's home tat falls flat as a soufflé – but look out Android makers


Fear and Loathing in Android OEMs

"But the least surprising news, that Google is serious about its own brand phones, may well precipitate the long-overdue shake out of Android OEMs. It’s the moment they have been dreading since Google’s first Nexus in 2010. Have a read back to our coverage to get a sense of the fear and loathing:"

What Android OEMs should actually fear is the market realising that only Google phones get proper security updates for the phone's lifetime. The lack of those make battery lifetimes irrelevant. Any phone that no longer gets updates is no use even if the battery is replaceable.
