What phone updates Android faster?

Episode 1756 (1:36:34)

Barry from Portland, OR
Motorola Moto G7

Barry is getting a new Motorola Moto G series mobile phone. Leo says it's the best mid-range priced mobile phone on the market today. Barry is concerned though, that updates are coming slower and slower these days. Leo says that unless Google makes the phone, that's going to happen since both the phone manufacturer and your carrier have to test the update before releasing them for their phones. Google can send updates directly. So if you're concerned about how fast updates happen, a Google-made phone like the Pixel 4a would be better. Check out the Android 1, too.
