Android has its head in the sand with AbstractEmu malware rooting phones


Re: Mockery? Sugarcoating?

How can anybody even suggest users should update when they know perfectly this is impossible because it depends entirely on the manufacturer's marketing strategy, which is always geared towards forcing you to buy a new phone every year (at least).

Hear! Hear!

Even Android One only offers security upgrades for a fixed, small, number of years. We really need to stop manufacturers from generating landfill phones and require them to provide support for the lifetime of the device.
