Nokia Android Phones Tops In Software and security updates â€“ Counterpoint
If you have been following our articles, you will observe that we always reiterate that if you want Android phones that get guaranteed software updates and monthly security patches, simply go for Nokia. Well, research institute has just confirmed that now.
According to Counterpoint Research;
â€œNearly 96% of Nokia smartphones, sold cumulatively since Q3 2018, are already running on Android Pie or have had an Android Pie update issued to them, making it the fastest brand to reach this level.â€
That is an interesting feat that is worth mentioning, especially considering that most Android smartphones never get a single software update in their lifetimes. Only about one quarter of the top Android smartphone models ever get updated to the latest OS version.
