I received a message from Google chrome that I have won a Apple iPhone 11, so I want to know if it is true

The likelihood of such a thing happening is 0.00001%.
So lack of security patches don't affect the end user in the real world.
Ppl and several businesses used Intel chipsets for years without issues despite the Spectre & Meltdown vulnerabilities. As I said, unless a team of hackers specifically target you exploiting that security loophole, you are safe.
Ppl continue to fall for marketing gimmicks where they feel if they don't have the latest security patch, they are vulnerable or worse the phone becomes unusable after 2 years. These are the same people that can be hacked using a simple phising link and they are worried about vulnerabilities in the system that are less likely to be a threat.

Most people can be easily compromised despite having latest security updates.
This phones is perfect for old people. Two months ago I got pixel 4a for my dad. He uses it for basic things like calling and video chatting with his children and grandchildren. He has also started using google assistant for asking time and weather, setting up reminders and alarm . He loves the fingerprint lock, always on display and media controls on lock screen. He is totally satisfied with this product.
this is the biggest scam. they are selling low-mid range phone for a flagship price.

Specifically the security updates and the numbered version updates. These companies are overly customizing their roms ffs without any benefit and ultimately they can't deliver timely updates.

Most of these Android phones don't have too many critical bugs to begin with. This isn't like iOS releases which have tons of bugs upon launch.
You just want updates for the sake of it? To make you feel you are updated and using the latest?
lpl, 02 Jan 2021Google ftw, everyone saying otherwise never owned a pixel phone. Haters gonna hate hahah 😂😂😂
Anonymous, 02 Jan 2021The best smartphones of 2020, in my opinion: pixel 4a, 4a 5G, and pixel 5. The very best!So, you love the full, current Pixel range... Do you own any one of them?
Anonymous, 02 Jan 2021The problem with Pixels is that you can't really play around with one in a store before y... moreYep, you are completely correct
(bought one blind, and after a lot of play and use to work out what's great & what's not - I wish I hadn't bought the 4a)
Anonymous, 02 Jan 2021Google will sink soon.... Mark my words...Yeah, one of the biggest companies in he world will sink.. Let me guess you are probably using android and if not they your are most likely using Google on a browser based on chromium. The pixels have been a huge success so far, labelled by many people as the best phones in their price category. The only thing you are correct about in your comment is your spelling.
I've got this phone and it has so much potential ..here's your chance as Samsung gone to shit with the voice ...you need to change the back swipe as when you flicking through pages it always goes back come on guys put some of ya millions onto this and build a better handset

I personally don't understand how people pay $800+ for a phone then wait 4 months for the OEM to release an update. You have individuals who make custom roms in days for free. There is no reason to believe a company like Samsung, Huawei or Xiaomi can't get these updates out within the first month when Google is giving them access long before they release the update. They're simply choosing not to get the updates out in a timely manner because it doesn't make them any additional money.

Kimurr, 02 Jan 2021To say that 4a is a loser definitely a weird choice. Yes it's not the most advance smartp... moreI agree with this 100%. The Pixel 4a fits a space that has been ignored by the phone industry. It's a reasonably sized phone, that does the basics extremely well, with a great camera at a reasonable price. There is nothing not to like about this phone.
Why pixel 4a 5g has not launched in India. I request Google pixel to launch the 5g variant of 4a model.

I've never bought theiPhone because I don't agree with their business practices/prices. I have used iPhones quite a bit but they are so micro managed. I like the freedom that Android offers. The Galaxy's started pricing themself "out of the galaxy." Windows phones are dead and Blackbeery is wellBlackberry.I decided on the Pixel 5. It does everything I need a cellphone to do, with 5g and a killer price tag to boot.
