You say Blackberry, but I hear that my Priv will soon stop getting patches.

Maybe, but it is 2 years old now. To be talking about a cessation of patches on a 2 year old Android is nigh on unprecedented.

Most other Android phones seemingly drop off the manufacturer's radar after 6 months...

IPhone is different of course. BlackBerry is still sporadically updating BB10.

Hopefully the situation with Android will improve, with Project Treble in Oreo. For those manufacturers who don't put a thick skin on top of Stock Android, staying patched through Google's channels should become easier...
