Another Reason Why I Love My Nexus Phone

Recently, there have been some exploits on Android, and most recently, there was Stagefright.  This is ones that allows you to remotely control your phone.  Scary. 

I found out about this from an app I have called Lookout, which is like a antivirus for the phone.  It alerted me of this, started some workarounds, but really, you would need to get an update on Android to fix it.  Coincidentally, I see an Android update.  More specifically, a security update.

It updates, and then I check for Stagefright, and no longer vulnerable.  Cool.  That’s one of the benefits of Nexus, and that is they are the first ones with the latest Android update.
