For a site that is meant to for techy folks,geeks,or I.t pros,it's sad to see not one comment t anywhere about the very easy way to keep most android devices up to date with latest version of the os,and quite often still get makers security updates..
Have none of you heard of rooting a phone and flashing a new Rom to it ?
Me,I will not buy any device that doesn't have a known,tested root method..
If your willing to trust the "many eyes" idea for open source software,well the same is true of roms,stick to those from known re-writers with a decent history..
I've flashed hundreds if Roma across dozens of devices,never had a problem with backdoors etc being added,but have used plenty with the makers ones removed..
Honour are ok,but there are as good but cheaper available,ZTE AXON 7 is an example..
