When security matters, only a Nexus will do


Look down at the phone in your hand. Since you’re here reading Android Central, there’s a good chance it’s a high-end, late-model, Android-powered (that’s a lot of hyphens) phone. There’s also a good chance you’re pretty happy with it, and it does the things you want it to do in the way you want them done. Awesome.

Unfortunately, there’s an even better chance that the phone in your hands is woefully out of date when it comes to security matters. I don’t mean the version of Android it’s running, because we’re past that. I mean the security patches you should be getting on a regular basis.

Unless you’re holding a Nexus phone, you’re probably not getting them, and that’s something you should be concerned about.
