The Android smartphones that Google recommends for your security and updates

One of the things that we criticize Android constantly is its fragmentation, which in part is due to the hundreds of manufacturers who bet on this operating system, and many times does not comply with the policy updates and security patches that Google would like.

This situation obviously does not benefit the users, who many times may be exposed to a vulnerability recently discovered if your manufacturer does not release security patches monthly, in addition to lose of the latest news of Android , if you do not update the Android versions from year to year.

To many users this may not seem like a problem, but because Google wants Android also use as an operating system business, because this situation does not favor you, especially in matters of security patches.

It’s official, the dark mode will come very soon to Android

For this reason, Android Enterprise has a list of Android devices that recommended to buy to the users who are interested in providing devices to their employees, or, to the users who are looking for a team that is committed to the security updates, and operating system.

According to Android Enterprise, all the teams in the list provide security patches constants in a maximum period of 90 days (some indeed do month to month, as is the case of Nokia and Pixel), plus you will get a minimum of one major update of operating system, that is to say, they will receive as a minimum a new Android update soon after its official launch.

In addition they all feature the encryption of the device, from the start, this is because none of the teams in the list was presented with a version below Android 7.0, even, many of the phones listed came on the market with Android Oreo, and most have already received the update of Android 8.0.

The complete list of devices is as follows:

  • BlackBerry KEYone
  • BlackBerry Motion
  • Google Pixel
  • Google Pixel 2
  • Google Pixel 2 XL
  • Google Pixel XL
  • Huawei Mate 10
  • Huawei Mate 10 Pro
  • Huawei MediaPad M5
  • Huawei P Smart
  • Huawei P10
  • Huawei Q10 Plus
  • Huawei P10 lite
  • Huawei P20
  • Huawei P20 Pro
  • LG G6
  • LG V30
  • Bike X4
  • Bike Z2 Force Edition

  • Sony Xperia XA2
  • Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra
  • Sony Xperia XZ Premium
  • Sony Xperia XZ1
  • Xperia Sony XZ1 Compact

Google makes it clear that these are the teams recommended if you are looking for constant updates for security and operating system, but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t other Android phones recommended for its functions, design or power.

And that is, if you noticed in the list do not appear some chinese manufacturers important on Android as Xiaomi or OnePlus, and is also not displayed any equipment from Samsung, which without doubt is one of the manufacturers with one of the worst policies of the updates in Android.
