Security Updates now get pushed through the Google Play store, not as a full Firmware update. As for unstable, if you are doing something different than most or running older apps, yes you can see items crash. That can happen with any OS, especially poorly written third party apps.
Really? none of mine have had any security patches for a long time. Vendors don't give two hoots either.
Huawei don't care Android 6, 2016/17 phone sat at June 2016 security)
Tesco long since defunct, no update from Google on Android 5
Toshiba abandon everything shortly after thier last product. (Android 4.3)
Even Nexus are long since abandoned and don't I remember any security updates, so I had to DIY that.
And Moto Gs/Es is all but given up anything not new now they are Lenovo. These do get security updates if a year ish old. G3 AND C plus. Well 1st Jan 2017 for the G3 an Dan E on march 2016
And they are some of the larger brands.
So don't tell me Google update them!
Android is a bad in fact absolutely shite ecosystem for updates to the OS.
They have however just started sorting their store security out, how well I don't know.
