This needs to be done
OEMs have done a fantastic job of demonstrating why OEMs don't deserve the right to build android devices.
The term "Landfill Android" came about specifically because almost the entire ecosystem of android builders, Samsung included, couldn't make a decent device to save their lives.
Or even if they accidentally did make a good device, you could be sure that it would get maybe 6 months worth of support if you were lucky. It took something like stagefright to open manufacturers eyes, and even then, only Samsung, LG and... someone else, I forget who.... FINALLY started offering monthly patch updates.
All this demonstrates that Apple was actually right in it's control freakery. Third party builders simply cannot be trusted to put out a decent product. And now Google is taking that lesson to heart.
