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...

    • ...and I just this morning realized you meant Cumberland, MD.  It threw me because there's an Ashby in Cumberland County, VA, which I'm far more familiar with. - Trip
    • I don't have anything solid to offer on Cumberland, but I came down US-15 today and the water tower site in Weber City is now up and running with B2/12/4/71 (035ACCxx), I believe I saw new T-Mobile antennas on the tower at Sprouses Corner which I will try to confirm on Saturday (definitely not running if they're there), and I believe I may have connected to something that got converted in Farmville.  By process of elimination, my guess is Lancer Park, but I hope to find out tomorrow or Saturday. So upgrades are clearly coming.  You may want to see if your local government officials can tell you anything.  Probably not, but can't hurt to ask. - Trip
    • Interesting twist.  Today, I took off for southern Virginia and had my T-Mobile B71 phone (Revvlry on Android 10) and I noticed the GPS was bad as compared to my other two devices on SCP on the dash.  Couldn't get it to clear by toggling the Location Services box, so I quit and restarted SCP. When I did so, it first came up with the bad coordinates, then extremely rapidly zipped through from where it was stuck all the way up to where I was currently, like the coordinates were backlogged and then suddenly flushed out within a few short seconds.  More bizarrely, I noticed the same behavior on two other devices (Pixel 3a and Moto One 5G Ace, both on Android 11) and had to do the same thing to those.  I also dumped my trails on all three, assuming they were all bad by then.  The rest of my devices were correct. I was barreling down the highway at the time, so I couldn't investigate further.  Other than my quoted message above, I've never seen this behavior before, and now it seems to be widespread.  - Trip
    • Does anyone have any updates to the Cumberland/Mineral County area? Specifically looking to get TMHI in Ft. Ashby.
    • Actually, you are correct. It is possible Dish won't take it. Meanwhile both Dish and T-Mobile pretend they don't want it for negotiation purposes.
