No, the problem was the summary: "The phones are attractive because they contain no bloatware, competing services, and a lack of software and security updates"
Parallel construction grammar fail. That should have read, "The phones are attractive because they contain no bloatware, no competing services, and won't lack software and security updates." The summary meant to negate all three parts.
