Most Android detractors like to say that, compared to iOS and even Windows Mobile, the mobile operating system developed by Google is less secure. Considering the Stagefright vulnerability story, one might end up considering they have a solid point of view. Fortunately, Google solved the problem promptly and promised monthly security updates from now on as well. Yesterday, unlocked HTC One A9 handsets began to receive the January update.

According to a message posted by HTC's VP of product management, Mo Versi, "The Jan security updates and bug fixes is being updated via OTA this morning!" As mentioned above, this only applies to the unlocked handsets, but we should also hear about the carrier versions being updated in a few days if everything goes well. Unfortunately, the change log is not available yet.

Thanks to these frequent security updates, the HTC One A9 remains a solid mid-ranger with great looks and attractive specs, including a full HD 5-inch AMOLED display protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 4, 2 GB or 3 GB of memory, up to 32 GB internal storage and microSD support, optically stabilized main camera, Dolby Audio, and more.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
