    Why buy a 2 year contract Android phone knowing Verizon will never send me an update with the latest security patches. I am still on 5.0 May 2016.

    My wife's Iphone is update at least 1-2 a year.

    Google needs to take updates out of carrier hands like Apple.

    Welcome to Android Central! This is why I only prefer Nexus phones (or carrier-unlocked phones from manufacturers that have a good update track record). But keep in mind that the constantly updates for Google Play Services do a lot of what used to be part of system updates. More and more manufacturers are also putting some of their stock apps in the Play Store (or other stores like the Galaxy Apps Store) so that they can be individually updated, rather than waiting for a system update.

    Nor Verzion branded phones. They are still better than AT&T with updates. I'm still 5.1 on my At&t GS6.
