It's a sort of a deal between the manufacturers and the eager early adopters — users get to see and test the newest software before it's even official, but they have to endure some bugs; developers get tons of testing done for free. In other words, it's a win-win.
But it's always a good idea to backup your phone and be mentally ready that something might go terribly wrong and you might have to wipe your device. Some manufacturers even advise users only use a secondary or old unit for testing purposes. But where's the fun in that, right?
So, we thought we'd ask you — how many of you test beta builds of upcoming OS updates on your daily drivers?
Do you test OS beta builds on your main phone?
