Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P review: With little-to-no compromise, these are now the Android phones to beat.
Google posts monthly security bulletins for Nexus devices online and runs a security rewards program for Nexus devices, which pays bug bounties to security researchers for disclosing exploits to Google. These security programs provide some trickle-down benefit to the entire Android ecosystem, but they revolve around the Nexus devices. There is a no bug bounty program for Samsung's TouchWiz skin, for instance, and Google's monthly security disclosures put non-Nexus devices, which are often either patched more slowly or not at all, at a greater risk of being exploited.
