We already know how the issue of updates on Android works, you do not need to go to do damage. Nevertheless, the issue of security patches seems to be somewhat more controlled , at least, in some firms that launch high-end terminals.

As we read in The Verge , the manufacturers do not usually apply the security patches completely . As you know, security patches include code lines with improvements and bug fixes. As well, Many manufacturers, more than you think, apply incomplete patches , leaving on the way the aspects that do not interest them, but hanging the medal that their terminals are updated to the last patch.

Technically, that’s right, since some update just and necessary for the terminal to reflect that it has been updated to the patch , although they have “forgotten” several aspects that may be important for the safety of users.

Again, the picaresque and the rush of the signatures, together with the ignorance of the users, makes this type of behavior habitual, until they are discovered. The boys of The Wired they talk to us about an application to discover if your patch is complete or not , and according to our tests, it works quite well . We have tested it on our Pixel 2 XL, recently updated to the April patch, and everything seems to be in order. Tell us now, what results have you obtained with the app , and if there are incomplete parts in your security patch.
