Re: New Pixel 3A and 3A XL

The guy at the Consumer Cellular store in Houston told my
cousin that he uses a Motorola G, loves the thing, wouldn't
have any other phone, will just sell customers whatever
phones they need. My cousin is an Android girl all the way,
is weighing pros and cons about what to do to replace her
ancient Samsung.

Best regards,

Carolyn

Well, Google does not make phones. It contracts out their
manufacture and just has its name date stamped on it.
Samsung and LG have made phones for Google in the past,
presently I think HTC does.

Google owned Motorola at a point; then stupidly sold it!

Yes, Google phones do get what is commonly referred to as
"pure Android."
As a general rule, these devices do get updates to the
Android kernel first.
I wouldn't say that this is strictly exclusive anymore since
there are
Android1 devices that are able to take advantage of similar
updates as they all line up for Project Treble which is
supposed to make updates to the Android kernel less
cumbersome.

There isn't a FOREVER update. It used to be two years, but I
think it's now three, will need to recheck that for
accuracy. Security updates though do go on for three years.
