    Kind of to be expected, as they're still on different hardware, and not, actually, Nexus. (Nexuses? Nexii? What was the official plural?)

    Default Re: Google Play editions not updated same time as Nexus

    Of course, being Google Edition devices, the manufacturers would've likely had a timeframe to develop working firmware for the GPE edition phones once new code is released, considering the firmware installed on such devices aren't different from the official AOSP code from Google, aside from a few under-the-hood OEM software. Otherwise, it would be a bit of a disappointment.
    Devices (Their ROMs and respective mods, if any):

    HTC One M8: Stock Sense 6 w/ OEM and carrier bloatware removed [daily driver]
    Samsung Galaxy SII (SGH-T989/Hercules): AOSPA 4.6 Beta 6 (4.4.4) FINAL, ViPER4Android FX, updated Adreno 220 drivers [backup]
    HTC Nexus 9: Stock Android Lollipop

    Tell that to people that called the GPes "Nexus" devices.

    I don't think anyone expected the updates to be the same day as the Nexus devices, otherwise what would be the point of the Nexus line. Timely updates for the GPE devices could mean 2 days later or 2 months later. When they were introduced Google said "Nexus like" updates so even if the GPE devices get it 2 months after the Nexus devices, it's still many months ahead of what they would get through their carrier.

    Yes, but the update is rolling out. It hasn't even been announced for the GE devices.


    GE devices aren't Nexus devices or Google would call them that. [/discussion]
