There are some obvious perks for those carrying and using a Nexus branded device. Perhaps the most talked about is the speed of updates.

We hope to see more hidden discoveries, but in the meantime there is something called App Ops. This is a mostly hidden feature, but at the same time it is one that can easily be accessed if you know the trick.
