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!

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.
