Why buy a Nexus again?

This editorial discusses the hiccups or screwups (depending on your viewpoint) on how Google is handling updates for the Nexus line. Although Google has already announced the update for the NS4G, will this type of delay continue once the GNex is introduced and the next version of Android is announced? Tells us what you think?

 

Google should have at least had the Nexus S update ready to go within weeks of the official Ice Cream Sandwich release. They should be leading by example, but they're only mirroring what we've been seeing of other manufacturers since the induction of Android. Here we are, four months after the fact, and the few Nexus S owners who were (un)lucky enough to get their update when the first bug-ridden OTA was released have either given up and moved on to a new device or had to install an entirely different ROM just to use their phone.

I hope that it was just an issue with the big changes from gb to ics

I'm sure you are counting on the ability to be one of the first folks to upgrade that GNex to Jelly Bean. I know I would be. It's one of the top reasons of buying a Nexus product.

absolutely, that is a big reason I chose gnex. Developer support and non bloated AOSP are the other reasons.

Sure does look bad when the Nexus device doesn't get the update before other OEMs were able to push out their version...

 

This update cycle by Google has been a real let down I bet for fellow Nexus device holders as they should not have to wait much past the current Nexus device to get their update...

I just want the nexus for gaurrunteed AOSP rom support even if it is unofficial. The Nexus S 4G had ICS roms two days after ICS was announced (which were built from SDK). They were actually decent and I used them for a while then got tired of ICS and moved back to MIUI.

Agreed. For the GSll to get the ICS update before the Nexus line is a colossal screw-up in my book.

 

It's not even that device really. HTC has rolled out official OTA updates to 3 decides for ICS already and that's the sad part of it all...that's sad part of it all. When one OEM can update 3 devices before the last Nexus device gets its update, its very questionable...hopefully for Galaxy Nexus users this is not a new trend...

    • The S21U was very spotty with connecting to 6E. It would only see it on a router reboot. I thought it was more the router than the S21U, however my laptop would solidly connect to the 6E network, so it must have been the S21U. Since I'm on WiFi7 with the S24U, I haven't kept track of it. I will flip over and check it out later. 
    • Wi-fi 6e missing (6 GHz on one of two ultras). Perhaps coming from an app?  Wifi analyzer can see the 6ghz, just can't see them to connect.  May try wifi reset, although communications reset could have been the source of this problem.  Others have reported it, so not an isolated issue. Edit: Fixed: Rebooted into safe mode. Wifi 6e worked. Normal boot back. No wifi 6e in available nerworks.  Unistalled Asus Router app. Checked for Wifi 6e being visible in wifi available networks. Nothing. Deleted Netgear Genie app. Then saw networks. of mine I had not connected to in wifi available networks. Forgot the desired 2.4&5&6 SSID that did not show 6E. Connected to it again. 6e now works.
    • I noticed today while I was out and about in Louisville that b30 has been widened back to 10x10. They reduced it to 5x5 back in Sept 2018 presumably due to satellite radio interference. Not sure how long ago the change happened but it couldn't have been too terribly long ago. I noticed the different earfcn in the neighbor list, I don't usually see b30 as pcc much but I wonder if that will change now. I locked my phone to b30 only on my drive home from work and noticed the new(old?) earfcn on every site, so it wasn't just a 1 or 2 site fluke. It also looks like they've been doing some fiber or other cabling work around the b2/b46 small cell nodes, I wonder if they are about to start adding c-band radios to those. 
    • Should trade it for some low-band there or elsewhere. AT&T dominates lowband.    
    • I checked existing spectrum holdings and selling 5x5 PCS to each of VZW and AT&T in Kauai would get them to 20x20 apiece there, which should make them happy. In Maui it makes more sense to sell 5x5 each of PCS and AWS to get VZW 20x20 AWS and AT&T 15x15 PCS. I figure it would be a sale rather than a swap, as neither of the other two have spectrum T-Mobile would want that's high-frequency enough to avoid the spectrum screen. Honestly, T-Mobile is strong enough in Hawaii from a capacity perspective that cutting down PCS/AWS holdings won't hurt, particularly in exchange for finally unlocking 2.5 (though in Maui I saw 140 MHz n41 regularly in September if I remember correctly).
