    Hi,

    According to oneplus policy of 3 years updates since release of device, the 5 was released in June 2017, now it's July 2020, is it safe to say no further updates will be provided and the phone is no longer supported?

    AFAIK OnePlus 5 is going to be supported till OnePlus 5T reaches end of update support.
    it should be the same as for OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T.

    The OnePlus 5/5T already got 1 extra major update more than any phone launched with Android N.

    AFAIK Oneplus 5t launched in November and Android 8 was available in August... so technically oneplus launched phone with older version of android. Which they rectified it by giving android 10. So i dont think its 1 extra update. Its the usual one.

    I'm waiting for the security patches to be released. I don't feel like there was a reason to release Android 10 and not release those patches since you can't use you phone without them.

    An OS is available isn't always exactly stable enough to be implemented. Although I do agree it should of been started with it, but there may be decisions that we will never know. We are not in the room where it happened.

    Actually yes. Is you have some sensitive data on your phone like some contacts of partners of your company, you corporative email account with some stuff, etc. you should avoid using insecure phone. At list for your work purposes.

    I don't want to.This device is not that old. I hope last patches will come to 5T, but if not - I'll have to buy iPhone instead. It's annoying to migrate again and again.

    But you can at least patch all known vulnerabilities. It's a quite simple thing. Every phone is insecure, but security level is different.

    You think, I Phone is secure? That s a big laugh. As mentioned before: Every device, not only a phone, is insecure- only option for sensible data is to keep this device offline and only type new data manually in. Every USB stick, every Cd,every attached hard disk is a risk. And if you need the phone for work, it s your compyny s job to give you a proper device. And then it s your company s problem, when data is getting lost from the device they gave you. ( Despite of you sending the data to some unwanted place!)

    please read previous comment. The idea that "everything is insecure" (btw wire phones are the most insecure thing) doesn't mean that there's no reason to apply security patches.
