  1. Hi,Google Nexus just launched and we are all excited about it!!!
    I am thinking of purchasing the phone but have the following doubts--
    1.If I root the phone will I still get official android updates from Google?
    2.If my phone breaks down then which service center do I go to?
    3.Nexus 5 supports USB OTG?
    4.Why does Nexus get less scores than LG G2 in benchmark tests when they both have almost same hardware specs?
    Also I am thinking about Xperia Z1s,I know its still not official but I just want to know that whether the headphones supplied with it will be similar to that of Xperia Z or to Xperia P?
    Thanks for replying :D

    1. No.
    2. Return it to Google via post.
    3. Not sure, probably yes.
    4. Benchmarks are pointless. Search here for an explanation why.

    What does return it to Google mean?? I mean to a Google warehouse,service center or what?
    Also I am not aware if its present in India
    Where do I search for the explanation?

    1. Install Cyanogenmod. Way better than any of the official firmwares.
    2. Read the warranty details
    3. Don't know, look through all the specs
    4. Benchmarks for phones are totally pointless. There's too many variables and many more important things to consider.
    5. Headphones are definitely not a dealbreaker, you'll probably want to get aftermarket ones anyway. I don't think I've ever used the supplied headphones on any of my phones.
