Motorola Mobility made news last week after introducing its Moto Z and Moto Z Force smartphones. These are both well-designed top line Android handsets with some serious performance punch. They also feature a very advanced version of modular expansion known as Moto Mods. This means tons of awesome add-on features. But along with this progress-centered news is a wind of caution that’s giving potential users some hesitation.

The company isn’t willing to follow in Google’s footsteps, which is unfortunate. In a dialog with Ars Technica, the company’s senior officials said ‘no’ to the possibility of monthly security patches for their devices running the Android operating system.

Motorola is a division of Lenovo. As such, one would think that the company should be resourced enough to be able to release monthly security updates. Because if Samsung and Google have already committed to doing so, there’s no clear justification why the company should take the other direction.
