The failure of Android phone manufacturers to push out updates to more secure versions of the Google-developed operating system has been sharply criticized by a consumer organization, after tests on 171 Android smartphones that it had acquired over the last two years.
The Dutch consumer association Consumentenbond applied the latest manufacturer’s updates on 171 Android smartphones that it had acquired over the last two years. It found only one in six of the updated phones were running Android 5.0, released last November, or a newer version. Half of the phones, even after updating, still ran a version two years old (Android 4.3), or older, which have known security flaws.
