As you probably know, the Nexus smartphones and tablets are always the first to receive the latest firmware updates, and the Android fans are choosing them over the competition for this reason.

May of those who decided to purchase a Nexus device are aware of the long list of advantages they bring over the Android terminals developed by the OEMs.
Anyway, always being able to update your smartphone to the latest version of the operating system it’s not always an advantage, especially because some of the firmwares might arrive in Beta, then update subsequently to fix certain bugs.
There are certain Android versions that only rolled out for the Nexus terminals, and the Android smartphone and tablet makers didn’t integrated them in their terminals, choosing to pre-install the most stable version.
