Google Nexus 5: It’s Not Over Until It’s Over

By  | 

The Google Nexus 5 is one handset that is showing its age now and some people may think that the device is coming to an end. However, it isn’t over until it’s over and in the case of the Nexus 5 this doesn’t seem to be right now.

The Google Nexus 5 was cut from the latest Android Nougat update but the handset has been very popular and it is going to continue to be updated by developers, who have a lot of love for the device.

This means that it might not be impossible for the Nexus 5 to be given the update to Android Nougat. It really doesn’t matter if you aren’t used to putting a custom ROM on the device as you can find plenty of tutorials online.

There is a choice of custom ROMs out there, including CM14.1 and the CAF version. Custom ROMs do come with both pros and cons, so you do have to weigh them up. Of course one downside is that Google isn’t offering the latest security patches for the Google Nexus 5, so owners are struggling to keep their devices virus free.
