It stops eventually. After 2 years maybe? But the updates will come within a few days of being announced.

Just like iOS7 only goes back to the iP4, I am sure they will stop after a while, when the OS takes up too much for it to run reasonably on the device.

Re: Nexus 5 leak?

I think the Nexus S from 2010 made it all the way to 4.1. So 2ish years.

I would bet that 4.4 is the last major update for the Gnex.

I got a phone that was originally on 4.0.0 and just recently got updated to 4.2.2. I can load a CM rom that's 4.3 if I want.

Yeah but other roms aren't 100% stable and you also have to install gapps and other sh!t to make the phone work properly.

Depends. CM10.2 for my phone is very stable. Likewise for my Kindle Fire. I've had ROMs before that were poorly put together. Right now I'm running the latest version of the stock software, same as the HTC One.

that lag or lack of response from the screen in 2:28-2:32 is annoying (having to press the URL bar twice). you can even see some scrolling lag at the start of the video 1:15 onwards, where the screen doesnt respond to the swipe. i experience that on my nexus 7 (1st gen) as well.

it could also just be the prototype.

Could be just that he's too busy talking and filming to pay attention to what he's doing. I've experienced all these same things on my mom's 4th gen iPad, too.

it could also be that the firmware is beta since it shows as keylimepie instead of kitkat. it could also be fake video if all we know.

im sure it happens on ipads too. you brought it up not me. didnt even mention apple in my post. dont wanna turn this into ios vs android.

It could be a lot of things. That's why I don't think we can examine the video as if it was a lab test. I brought up the iPad for the same reason you brought up a Nexus 7, to compare and contrast and increase the sample size.
