evolution of the Nexus phones, but this GIF helps to more easily visualize the changes we've seen in the hardware from the Nexus One until the Nexus 5. It also helps to visualize the changes that the Android system has gone through from Android 2.1 Eclair until Android 4.4 KitKat.We've covered the
As you can easily see, the real transformation happened with the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and the update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The device saw a big jump in display size (which was somewhat off-set by the introduction of on-screen function buttons), and a complete overhaul of the system UI.
Given that Google has tended to save major UI overhauls for full .0 releases, we can't wait to see what's in store for Android 5.0.

Yea, I don't see how he could comment without stopping. It takes a bit of scrolling to get there on a 1080p screen and he'd have to be watching on one and commenting on another device to do it...or maybe open a while new window/tab or something....makes no sense really.

This is the most ridiculous thing I've read. The iPhone has evolved more than the nexus has.

That's laughable. Apple kept the same screen size for 5 years, uses the same design for 2 years at a time (though it is usually a good design), and up until iOS 7 all iPhones looked practically identical in terms of software. The Nexus gets a screen bump every year, is always changing design without making it foreign to users, and Android has been flipped over and renovated multiple times already in terms of design. The Nexus has made more progress in enhancement to it's hardware and software design in 5 years than the iPhone has in 7.

The only Nexus phone that this has ever happened with is the Verizon Galaxy Nexus. The Nexus 4 from T-Mobile receives updates straight from Google, if I recall correctly. But yeah, I agree with you there- the VZW Gnex was a joke.
