    I demand Android N for the Nexus 4! (heh )

    Joking aside, this phone is still pretty decent; don't really have any need to upgrade it yet.

      Running it on my Nexus 6P right now. Very very impressed. Seems very stable. So far the only thing I've noticed was a small hiccup with Pandora.

        Is it true that android N introduces auto updates to fight fragmentation? The company I work for still supports android 2.x which is so painful for us. We target iOS 8+ for iPhone...

          Android *2.x* is 2.3% of active devices. That's ludicrous!

            No It's impossible because all devices aren't Android AOSP, but derivatives with many customizations from the OEMs.

            There is an Android Beta program that allows people to be beta testers for Google for free on Nexus devices.

                No, you're misinformed if that's what you've heard. The OEMs are still responsible for their phones. But, users that does not normally update their phone, or even know that there's such a thing will get updated automatically in the background. Which might help a little bit, but not too much.

                  So, is the VR mode proprietary or is it in AOSP?
