AnonD-368925, 02 Aug 2016That seals the debate whether android N will be released on Aug 5th!Yeah, Evans tweet points that the rollout would begin August 17th onwards.
AnonD-567812, 03 Aug 2016Why not just use nexus devices in corporate environments? There are many factors, but personally I believe it's more of an "inertia effect" than anything else.
Most are currently running with Apple (some still with Blackberry) and the biggest sell point to jump switch to Android is hardware choice (meaning different supply chains, competition, custom features and controllable cost). By saying "you can only go with a Nexus" you have just undermined your biggest selling point, making deciders stick to what they now know (meaning no migration costs to an unproven and undermined premise).
From there on you are just hit with the "rogue apps" distributing malware straight from the Play Store, security reports from 3rd-parties that always suggest iPhone is "uncompromisable" unless jailbroken, even as far as private reports suggesting targeted attacks to vulnerable Android devices (that connect to corporate accounts) already happen on a "daily basis".
"Buy Nexus" simply won't cut it.
That seals the debate whether android N will be released on Aug 5th!
It's very positive to see that Google is at least working on solutions for this major security issue (the possibility of not getting security fixes in time -- or at all -- very much hinders the corporate adoption of Android), even if (at this stage) we are still dependent of manufactures (and often even carriers) to deploy these security fixes for your device (meaning the practical effect is very little for such a large and fragmented ecosystem such as Android).
I'm hopping that, some day, they will just make this (applying the first patch level timely) a mandatory requirement for their own certification (the one anyone who wants to have Google Play in their devices has to comply to).
Rex, 01 Aug 2016I WISH there were some Solid Leaks of Specs and Design... so I could finally know if I should ... morewell you can expect from nexus 5x successor is sd 820, 4 gb ram, 1080p display, fingerprint sensor on the back, new successor's name will be HTC nexus S1 (Sailfish) screen size 5-5.2 inch. Will cost just above 350$ or so, it will have plastic build just like nexus 5x. I would suggest waiting for new devices. Because 2gb of ram and sd808 is just too old now and weak. A lot of people complains about 2 gb ram on nexus 5x. It was bad since it released. But new nexus 5x succesor seems very promising, i would just wait for this phone reviews and then do a decision.
LG superfan, 01 Aug 2016Which Note?Note Edge (telstra/australia)
Always checking Sammobile for marshmallow rom.
Yes, I likely should jest put a custom rom on it, but I feel for the money spent; it should just work
Same way that a chef, after 12 work hours in a kitchen, might eat a 'pie' for tea, a lot of technicians can't be bothered to maintain their own machines.
With regards to my phone, auto update should just work,.. believing marshmallow should be in my local market, I have gone from checking monthly, to weekly, to daily,.. now I have just enabled auto updates.. I am done waiting
Just checked carriers page, in testing, due august 12th, includes july security.
I WISH there were some Solid Leaks of Specs and Design... so I could finally know if I should purchase the Nexus 5x (JUST for it's fine Camera) or wait a few more month for the HTC Nexus.... ufff...
