Devices companies Motorola, LG and Nvidia get updates almost simultaneously with the Nexus. This is good for consumers who can quickly update your device, but it creates and headache for Google, which is necessary to deal with problems on a wide range of phones and tablets at an early stage “, – the expert added.
