    If you have a Nexus 5 or Nexus 7 from three years ago then you my friend know how to take care of a phone or tablet. One good reason to keep a Nexus device this long is the fact that Google does such a good job of keeping their devices updated with the latest and greatest versions of Android. Google had already listed the End Of Life Date for the Nexus 5 as October 2015 so the fact that it has been updated past that date is pretty awesome. Neither the Nexus 5 nor the Nexus 7 (2013) will receive the update to Nougat. That being said both devices are still receiving security patch updates. According to Google the security patch updates will last 3 years from the time of release so enjoy those updates while you can!

    You may not need Nougat, but do you WANT Nougat? If so, the Dev community got you.

    My N7 Flo has been completely stock and unrooted since purchased 2 1/2 years ago. I suspect that will be changing in the near future. Unless someone comes out with an updated Nexus 7" tablet with wireless charging.
