Samsung, Xiaomi are some among the many companies that customize the Android OS for their users.
However Stock Android offers the best Android experience to its users, let us go through a few reasons to help you understand the risks and disadvantages of custom Android operating system
- Android devices are considered less secure compared to that of the iOS devices. The released Android updates are not made available to the users by the mobile manufacturers as they need to customize the Android according to their priorities, this delay in the updates make those devices more vulnerable to malware and there arise some kind of security
- Custom Android devices don’t receive updates as soon as the stock devices do and this makes the users spend years waiting for the latest Android updates and on the other hand, stock OS users can experience the new Android OS as soon as Google releases it and this allows them to look at their smartphone in a new way
- While the Samsung and Xiaomi devices come well equipped with lots of unwanted bloatware which creates a lot of clutter, stock devices are completely free of such bloatware
