    I purchased a Moto G5+ (4 gb/64 gb) phone almost 2 years ago, (Sept/14/2017) cert.refurbished/unlocked. It's running Android 8.1.0

    It is no longer receiving security updates.

    I am perfectly satisfied with the phone, yet I'm wondering how important is it to have a phone that is continually scheduled to received security updates?

    Usage:
    Browsing internet,phone calls,text,email,streaming to chromecast, GPS, banking apps. All apps updated via Play Store.
    I also have Avast Antivirus on the phone, if that helps at all.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I'd prefer not to rush out and purchase another phone, if it's really not a dangerous prospect in using it.

    Thoughts?

    I think JR Raphael has a lot of smart things to say about updates: https://www.computerworld.com/articl...es-matter.html
