    I get the impression that because it's a project by one of the Android founders, that it should receive regular and timely patches and updates...

    Is this wrong?

    The November security patch was on our devices before most Pixel 2 owners had theirs.

    I think the longest we've waited for a patch since launch was a week.

    Regardless of if this phone is from one of the founders of Android, it doesn't guarantee timely updates. However, so far the updates have been on time, way better than other phones like Samsung and LG. And since Essential doesn't customize their Android variant, we should expect this trend to continue especially with project treble from Android Oreo onwards.

    Essential got the Krack WPA2 fix prior to Google's own release to Pixel phones!

    Here post I did that has all the information needed to update your phone out side of sprint. I am on sprint and currently running the Oreo beta and I have full service and function still. If you don't want to jump on the beta. You can download the latest builds from essentials developer page.

    You need to stick another carrier Sim and reboot. I just received the Sprint one couple days ago via the flex lease promo. Unfortunately mine came locked to Sprint out of the box, even delivered 5o my house. Put my TMobile sim before even booting up the phone, and still locked. Anywho, after setting the phone up, I put the TMobile sim card in, and rebooted. The latest software update popped up, with the December security updates. Downloaded via WiFi and installed it, popped the Sprint sim back in.
