Hi,

All phones have security issues, not just Android.  The Blueborn
vulnerability was in iPhones as well as Android phones.  Apple and Google
patched it very quickly.

All the best

Steve

Until Treble arrives the security issues remain   Best to be aware of
security weakness and avoid phones with poor software updates
