The FBI purchased the NSO Group’s Pegasus spyware but only for “testing and evaluation.”

yes there’s few things i can think of

  • centralized. One vulnerability exposes billions of devices
  • closed source. cannot be audited easily. so bugs remain undiscovered and backdoors can be built in
  • you can’t verify android software with a hash. so infected versions can be selectively pushed to particular people.
  • monopoly. manufacturers are barred my Google from making/selling non android phones and probably lots of other contributors. all of the above could be fixed with laws, or good regulation.
