as an old fan of BB, i think BB new phones are not competent anymore..
itachi , 05 Jan 2018Does blackberry devices gets regular android security patch update and OS update? On the other hand, major new OS versions are less certain. One device (the Priv) got one major OS upgrade (Lollipop to Marshmallow), but owners were disappointed when it didn't also get upgraded to Nougat. Some devices (such as the DTEK series) have never received and new OS upgrades at all.
So you really need to separate OS upgrades and security patches out into two different questions. They are better than most OEMs at keeping up to date with security. They may be disappointing with OS upgrades.
itachi , 05 Jan 2018Does blackberry devices gets regular android security patch update and OS update? Yes. Since switching over to Android from their previous proprietary OS, they have regularly published monthly security patches, most often less than a week after Google's public disclosure. However, if you bought your device through a carrier, then your carrier might delay the release of security patches somewhat.
(Blackberry/TCL has, on a very few occasions, missed a month. On the other hand, sometimes they release fixes for some security flaws even faster than Google. For example, the Android-powered Blackberry devices were they very first Android devices in the world to receive a vendor-supported fix for KRACK.)
