Why doesn't a phone have a firewall like windows firewall.
A simple test, but it looks like the firewall works.Nmap 7.01 was initiated at Thu Feb 18 19:59:20 2016 with these arguments:
nmap -p 1-65535 -T4 -A -v 192.168.1.3
Verbosity: 1; Debug level 0
- 192.168.1.3 - (ipv4)

From what this says it seems Microsoft Windows firewall is different than androids firewall due to the way Microsoft tweaked it.
I still think androids original firewall needs updated the only reason it hasn't been is cause no major threats have happened but that doesnt mean it can't happen on this unpatched original android firewall.
A phone is still hackable and can get infection from networks or Internet so I believe that's why it needs updated rebranded or whatever needs to happen in order to get a better firewall.

Whats the point of having secure security features if law enforcement just wants to hack into them. That is not what law enforcement is supposed to do they are to serve and protect not hey we need evidence and can't get it due to apples security so build us something which can hack into any one of them phones
If a phone has to be hacked to obtain evidence then that phones evidence itself was obtained illegally by the means of hacking.
Them wanting evidence off the iPhone is not a emergency it's just them wanting evidence they can't get anywhere else.
