Android is the Best Operating system for Smartphones owned by Google and today Billions of people are using Smartphones running android on them. Google allows every phone manufacturing company to manufacture phones to run android on them. But where this Solves many problems it also creates many other problems like Slow smartphones or No timely updates, also way too many devices create many other problems for developers to optimize Software for specific Hardware.
To cope with this Problem Google Started Nexus Program. If I define Nexus Device in few lines, it would be: Google Nexus is line of Products Manufactured by OEM (original equipment manufacturer) Partners (like Samsung, HTC, Motorola, etc) and designed and Controlled by Google for the Best Android Experience. Google Chooses OEM partner each time independently like LG Nexus 5, Motorola Nexus 6 or Nexus 10 by Samsung. There are many Benefits of Using Google nexus devices and I am going to explain 10 Reasons why you should Prefer Google Nexus Smartphone/Device over any other ordinary smartphone or tablet out there.
Why you Should Buy Google Nexus Device:
I know after Nexus 6 is announced, you’ll think that it’s not any way near to Cheap think again, think how cheap was the Google Nexus 5 or Previous devices? Think again, when you were able to buy a High-end device which is carrier Unlocked in price range of $340-$400. I know the new Nexus (Nexus 6) is bit expensive but I think someone who wants a high-end Smartphone or tablet can afford that much price, also its specs are way better than iPhone 6 Plus in much less cost, I would call it cheap anyways.
9. Best Design:
I have seen lots and lots of ugly smartphones where manufacturers try to experiment new designs and most of them get flopped but Google always try to implement tried and tested Design for its Nexus devices which always gets popular, be it Nexus 5, Nexus 4 or earlier Nexus Smartphones or tablets.
8. Pure Android/No Bloatware:
The best thing I liked about these Nexus devices is that you can enjoy pure Android experience with no bloatware like Samsung, HTC (HTC sense), Sony and many others does, no pre-installed apps to slow down your phone or kill its battery before time. You get to enjoy Pure/Stock Android which is better for your phone-life and you can enjoy whole Android ecosystem with Nexus Device without any unwanted apps.
7. Unlocked Phone:
Most of the High-end devices like LG G3 or Sony Xperia Z3 or many other devices like that in market come with a carrier lock tag, you have to pay a certain amount of money to that certain carrier to get your android device unlocked. But with nexus devices you don’t have to worry about that, Nexus devices are available factory unlocked in lot less price than other “High-end devices” (you see what I did there), price of Google nexus 5 will give you an idea.
6. Developer Friendly:
There are thousands of Android devices coming out every year or so and it’s quite difficult for developers to develop for those thousands of devices. The ideal device for development and testing of the code for developers is a Nexus device, be it Nexus smartphone or a Nexus tablet, so yeah, Developers love nexus devices.
5. Software Updates:
Another most awesome thing about nexus devices is that they get instant software updates worldwide when a software update is pushed officially from Google. Unlike other OEMs which push updates to their devices after 5-6 months (minimum) of official release. If you want to get latest software updates on your device you should go for Google Nexus Device.
4. Fully Optimized:
I have seen lot of Apple fans complaining that Android Phones suck because their Hardware and software is not optimized for each other. It is clearly a wrong assumption based on what phones they have used (Samsung, HTC, sony etc). I would say if you want to see a fully optimized device having their hardware and software optimized for each other to give even better performance, try Google nexus device and you’ll know the difference.
3. Fewer is Better:
Many companies work on the idea of “more is better” and therefore they release new device every 2-3 months (not joking), and because of that they are not able to focus on one device or better support (hardware or software) of one specific model of the device they release. Now that is where customers become frustrated because when someone buys a new phone it becomes outdated in a month or two.
Also the OEMs don’t focus on one thing which is Pushing latest Software updates to their phones, with so many models coming out each 2-3 months its difficult for them too to push software update for each and every phone and they (OEMs) are also Unable to deliver Software support to their customers (which really pisses me off).
But when you see nexus devices, there are quite few nexus devices and each time new nexus device comes out, its Unique in its design, Quality of material and Optimized software and hardware. This is the point here, there are few devices in Nexus line but you can enjoy pure android experience while using them.
2. High-End Hardware:
Now I agree that the Hardware of nexus devices is not that much high-end, like the camera or stuff but when you take a look at the whole phone or device you realize, it is the kind of hardware you want to use in daily life. And what else you expect in that low-cost from Google? You get the best device of the market in few hundred bucks.
Now after Google announced Nexus 6 which is going to be quite expensive device you can experience much better and high-end hardware you want to see, like camera and battery life of your choice.
1. Best Android Experience:
Here we go, literally the best thing about Google Nexus Devices is that You can Enjoy the Purest and the Best Android Experience of your life which you can never get on any other Smartphone running android be it Samsung galaxy S5 or LG G3 or any other high-end Android Smartphone. That is one of the most important thing for an Android Geek to buy a Google Nexus Phone/Device.
