Once Android hits iOS’s ~85% active devices on latest version of the os, then it wouldn’t be. I just don’t think that will happen anytime soon because of the way the OS is rolled out through 3rd parties for the most part.

Actually, I was trying to make the opposite point -- Google Play 
Services is now on (at least) 93% of all Android devices. It runs on any 
Android regardless of manufacturer or customized OS, provided the device 
is authorized to access the Google Play Store. It's had over 5 billion 
downloads and is, among other things, the security layer.

It isn't only the "Google-made" phones that are protected, it's almost 
all of them now.
