Well.. after all the drama Galaxy users had with their previous flagships regarding Software Updates, the Galaxy S8 is the next one to be silently ended by Samsung. They removed the S8/S8+ from their Security Update site, which means that the April 2021 patch was the last one we will ever see from Samsung's site on the S8. Maybe they will roll out an additional one, as they did last year with the Galaxy S7 (EOL: August 2020 patch), but thats not guaranteed..

Sad news but I already saw that coming last year, so I already switched to an iPhone.

Sad story.

How secure is using an unpatched phone with a good antimalware / antivirus ?

Are there custom ROMs receiving security updates that can be used
with play store etc... without having root enabled?
