New Android 5.1 build LMY47I factory images now available for the Nexus 5 and Nexus 6
Coming roughly a week after the last updated build for the Nexus 6, the new factory image for the Nexus 5 and Nexus 6 clocks in at build number LMY47I.
While it's not clear what this new build brings, this makes the third Android 5.1 build released for the Nexus 6 in as many weeks, and the second for the Nexus 5. Chances are, today's update is a relatively minor one focusing on some bug fixes, much like the previous build released for the Nexus 6. If you'd like to get your hands on the update and start flashing it to your device, you can hit up the source link below to grab the factory image for yourself.

The Nexus is the equivalent of an iPhone for Android. Google controls the hardware and software. From my understanding, the on is built on this hardware. I'm not a developer, you could think of me as a tinkerer but in all honesty most of the problems I've got aren't going to be solved by an update.
Most updates are fixing problems (battery life, slow performance) that goes to show that it wasn't really good to go when it initially shipped. Having paid $600 for previous phones I haven't expirienced the issues I've had with this one. The m8 camera was supposed to be bad(it only had 4 megapixels) for my use it was completely adequate. This camera just stinks all around. On that same m8 any. "OK Google" was promptly greeted with the listening tone. This phone, not so much. When I used other OEM phones I didn't have as much of a need to run a ROM because everything worked as it should. After a week with the N6 I'm ROM shopping for the first time in YEARS, not shopping for new features shopping for basic reliable functionality.
