The nexus? That thing that's evidently being discontinued[^]?

I've had fairly awful Samsung experiences. Their hardware is excellent when it's not actually blowing up and giving people 3rd degree burns, but their software updates are hit and miss (in my case: always miss). Nexus means you get the updates, when they come out, fairly quickly. Getting a device from another manufacturer means you have to wait for them to integrate the updates with their version of Android and then push it out.

And with Samsung, that may never happen.

I've done a fair few flights this last week. On every flight was the warning that Samsung Galaxy phones (they weren't actually specific enough) were not allowed to be used or charged during the flight. That sort of naming and shaming is unlike anything I've seen.

If you don't mind sporadic updates then I'm sure you can find units very, very cheap these days.
cheers
