[XDA] Android Nougat Finally Released — Coming Your Way! - Page 12

Because Apple is where the money is. Apple is getting 90% of the benefits in the smatphone market (with a 15% market share). And people buying Apple gear is more likely to have disposable income for paid apps and services. It is a no-brainer to develop for Apple first or give it priority.

For me buying an Android phone is the same as building your own PC. You get more for less but you have to do a bit of research.

Honestly, this has barely felt like an official release. Yes, Google does their staged roll outs and all but I don't think there has been a case of someone getting an official OTA update to 7.0 yet without going through the "beta" sign up loop hole. The factory images for the 6P have still yet to be posted.

I updated my 6P with the beta program and my wives 6P just got the OTA yesterday. Looks like every other staged rollout OTA they have ever done to me. Not sure what you're referring to.

I look forward to the next lineup of Nexus phones, but I'm skeptical that they can sell me on it. The only reason to go with a Nexus device to me is if I don't have to root it to get better updates. If I have to root it, then there's no reason to not go with another manufacturer (I can get extra features I may desire, and I'd root it to get rid of bloatware). Unfortunately, Google disabled Miracast by default on their Nexus phones, requiring root access to fix. That is some Apple-level proprietary-forcing BS right there. Chromecast is great but it has its limitations.

Well, I did post that almost 3 days ago. The part about not having factory images posted yet still holds true. Usually, all the factory images are released within a day or two.

I see it differently. The reason for Nexus is supposed to be bloat-free, official, and fast software updates. Root is there if you need it and is easier to do than most other flagship devices and doesn't trip anything to void warranties. Besides, I root anyway for adblocking, titanium backup, and if required, enable tethering.

That's not much different than what I said.

If that's what it seemed I implied then perhaps I worded that post badly.

Your post seemed to imply it wasn't worth getting Nexus if you have to root. For me, I like Nexus phones because I can get those software updates and root it easily if I wanted to.

That is not true. At least not with stock android anyway. I have android 7.0 on my nexus 5x and it has the app drawer (6 dots). If it has been removed on some devices, it is not stock android.
