    What you say does not make sense and is purely fanboyism behaviour and talk, a company that only offers one phone should have no issue to push out monthly security patches without a sweat. If they can `t or won`t do that they should close their business. Nokia and Sony can do it with multiple phones so whats the problem.

    We are paying costumers and have a legal right to have OP keep our phones secure. Samsung is beeing sued in court in the Netherlands by a big consumers platform for their late and irregular update strategy for their phones.

    sure they have to test it, but partners (like OnePlus) get the fixes AT LEAST 1 MONTH before the bulletin report goes public. so... CAF based or not, they get the patches long time before Google pushes the report and updated AOSP source public...

    most of the time the fixes apply clean, different base only means they might need to take 5 minutes more to apply needed patch on CAF modified source - and there's a lot of repos which need the patches (platform/external/ repos) and I am sure CAF doesn't have additions merged.

    I'd respect if you say Google certification takes time, also some carriers might need to give a "go" which eats time - but saying they are CAF based and can't updated because of that at time isn't a reason.

    Fair enough. You clearly know your stuff as opposed to me, who has just read some things online. ;)

    I am active in some custom ROM communities (also updating some older roms frequently with monthly security updates) and you get a lot of information from people who know a lot, also I've a friend who's working for a company selling smartphones for industry stuff (he's e.g. fixing CTS compatibility of device specific source).
    E.g. LineageOS or AOSPA are CAF based in big parts and there isn't much trouble applying the monthly security patches once Google publishes them.

    so: CAF isn't the reason, Google certification and carrier testing might be...

    Samsung has the February patches because they only released OREO on the stable channel in early march for their phones, OnePlus released released Oreo on the stable channel in December.

    Security has to be number one. OnePlus should stay updated with security patches.

    That's not completely true. Unless you have a direct partnership with Google, it can be quite a pain in the bum to get the required sources to make the patch compatible with your device, especially when Qualcomm is very annoying, and has lots of hands in the work on LOS(a major reason why several people prefer AOSP ROMs). OxygenOS is a mix of a lot of sources(mainly CAF), it does get delayed quite a bit. And after they do get the patch "ready", they have to test it enough to make sure it is safe enough and doesn't break things, something Google apparently doesn't do, looking at patches since Jan 2018, there's always reports of poor battery life, heating issues, lag on multiple Pixel devices.
