Googles phones are "nexus" models...even the LG nexus...
Well samsung has a model that is nexus..so does google..
U can buy unlocked phones by Google, because google said they were tired of carrier companies taking to long to update phones..
So if u have a google phone it updates way before a VZ phone would of the same model.
(All this is my understanding from what iv been told, so i could be wrong))
But is there a difference in a VZ samsung nexus vs Google's samsung nexus or other models they have?
