If the HTC One Google Play edition is getting the update in 15 days, it might be the same with the Nexus line and the S4 Google Play Edition then.

Of course, if the battery in your Sammy phone explodes, it's not Sammy's fault, but some nameless one's who sold the batteries to Sammy.

The hardware is different, and the drivers are different...

And he is a smart classic troll who bashes Android but loves Apples closed system. Wow a System Dev like would normally praise opensource and admire Linux more than ios, osx. He has a avatar of Android and then dislikes Android utmostly.

I would love to debate and have a go with you but i'm not a system or a app dev. But if you was on Anandtech, you would be confronted by loads users, cause the users on there are on the next level of knowledge...

It's Google's fault dammit. Google is responsible for creating software for Galaxy Nexus.

PapaSmurf, kids under 12 are not allowed to use that word. Plus I've got copy rights on that word...and I use it mainly for 'sammy' fans. Nothing from what he said makes him an android hater. Ex: Should I remind u how judgemental you're comments are when htc gets banned because of an infringement from a hardware done by a dif manufacturer ?! Ohhh yes it's htc's fault...they should know better...well yr sammy should know better as well before they decide to put a crappy processor in a phone...especially a nexus phone that is meant to be compatible for upgrades for a long time. Yes GALAXY NEXUS is a fail. Ta da.

You should probably read the comments again before trying to call me out. Not only do you look like an ass right now, but the validity of your comment is now worthless.

If you don't know what you're talking about, then please don't pretend like you do. It's TI's fault the GN didn't get updated to 4.4. If you can't see that, I don't know what to tell you honestly.

TI has to release the drivers, which isn't possible anymore since they've dropped out of the business. Google can theoretically do it themselves, but it would take a hell lot of money for a small userbase. It's better to just upgrade to the Nexus 5 tbh.

Just like if an iPhone electrocutes you it's not Apples fault but some third party charger.

flagships are meant to be few in number. Only sony keeps popping out flagships every month fot no reason. If every phone is a flagship then whts the meaning behind it?

And ig u really think samsung is bad in updating its phones you need to do a serioud fact check immediately.

Why are you still on 4.1.2? Note II has 4.3 available.
