Android 7.1 Nougat update is one of the most awaited Android updates nowadays for LG and Nexus 6P and 5X smartphone owners. Along with all the excitements for most recent Google Android updates, reports of Google's marketing strategy to save best features of Android 7.1 Nougat to their very own smartphone brand Google Pixel are surfacing.

According to Gamenguide, Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X lost some of the features when the smartphone was upgraded to Android 7.1 Nougat, features that Google Pixel has on the upgrade. Additionally, it is said that this is part of Google's marketing strategy to ensure that Google Pixel will stay on top and way ahead of other Android 7.1 devices.

On the other hand, Google has recently provided a statement that the losses of some features of Android 7.1 Nougat in Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P is unintentional, and is not by any means a form of a marketing strategy. Google stated that Night mode feature is not present on the update of Nougat to Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X. This is because Android 7.1 needs a special type of driver to perform the feature on the said smartphones. Google said that the second upgrade for Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X would have the Night mode feature in it.

Meanwhile, Samsung Galaxy S7, as well as Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, are now up for Android 7.1 beta access while other mobiles such as LG, and HTC are reported to follow the Android 7.1 Nougat updates for their devices.

Do you believe that the missing Night mode feature of Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X are all unintentional? Is Google's action part of their marketing strategy? Tell us what you have in mind below in the comment box.
