The only downside is that there’s no Bluetooth shutter—you have to rely on triggering your phone’s camera with a button on one end of the stick.

Which Android phones get updates?
All of Google’s phones get security updates for at least three years from when they launched, but that isn’t enough if you want newer features. So here’s a list of which devices will see major Android updates after their initial release: Pixel and Pixel XL, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P and any devices made by partners under Google’s Made for Google program.
