    This surely works great when your phone's chinese manufacturer's last security update is from 2016 (I'm using Le Eco Le Pro 3)

    One of the things I do love about using actual Google phones is that OS updates come down immediately. NO interference from any cell providers. Its great!

    Yeah, but then you have to use Google...

    Besides, custom roms such as from xda are pretty fast as well

    I guess I want to make clear I am talking about "family use" and family carried Google devices. Custom roms are only for those in the hobby and rooted, etc.... That is not where our usage is. These devices will never see this place or anything like it. I don't want to maintain all these devices. Google does a great job with their updates. I do have single hop VPN stuff for their use while on wifi at coffee shops, etc..... I am keeping all hobby activities on linux machines where I hope to have complete control. Just my way.
