This week Google has delivered the monthly security patch for their Pixel phones. The most recent security update distributed by Asus for the 5z phone is dated 5 January 2021.
How can Asus pretend to be considered a reliable manufacturer behaving like that? Security patches (and bug fixes!) should continue independently from the fact that two upgrades of the OS have been delivered for 5z. Does Asus understand the difference between evolutive maintenance and corrective maintenance? Basic principe of software development and engineering standards seems to be ignored.
