We're all sick of Fortnite, but the flaw found in its downloader is the latest way to attack Android

Oh, that's nice, you've cherry picked some examples without noting it doesn't apply to other phones.

Go and check out the patch level for the Blackberry Priv, it's ok, I'll wait.. Alternatively go and check that the S6 Edge was initially withdrawn from security patch support, but Samsung later backtracked.

Check out this from Google themselves :

The guaranteed three years of updates only applies for specified 'Enterprise' devices.

If you bought a computer for a few hundred quid, you'd expect to receive patches for much longer than three years, and to be able to update the OS. For some reason (the contract nature of phones) the general populace are brainwashed into thinking this is acceptable when it's a pocket computer that connects over a mobile network.
