A comparison highlighting different smartphone brands on the basis of their security update performance has expectedly shown Apple as the leader, while most of the renowned Android vendors have been listed with poor ratings. Among other companies, LG and Samsung are reported to be massively lagging behind the iPhone maker as they take quite a long time to release security updates for their devices. Essential Phone and Google are, however, noted as the leading Android brands to release faster Android updates.
The comparison, released by SecurityLab for period of January-February 2018, has listed smartphone brands majorly on the basis of four different factors, including the shortest time to publish a security update following discovery of a vulnerability, maximum delay in making the update available to all, whether or not updates were independent of carriers, and how long a device is supported with security updates.
