Nexus 6P beta testers can snag the final Android 7.1.2 Nougat update | AndroidAuthority. For a true geek, it doesn't get better than having a phone that has the latest, greatest version of Android at all times. After years of waiting a year or more for Verizon to update my phones, I finally went to the source, and got a Google branded phone. I began with a Nexus 6; but, ran over it with my car. (long story). Then, a year or so ago, I spend under $500 for the 6P, and have used it ever since, except for a little time spent with other phones I was testing. I enrolled in the beta program so that I could get updates even sooner. Google patches the software once a month, so I am always getting updated to the latest version. It helps that the phone is fast, smooth, and beautiful. It has become like an extension of my hand. What's in your pocket?
