I often find statements on Android forums like, "Nexus devices are perfect for developers." or "A Nexus device is almost impossible to actually 'brick'" (Is this actually true?). What is it that makes the Nexus devices so special? Is it because they have the stock Android, and so tinkering with Android in its purest form is possible?
It's just that I own a Nexus 4, and I don't even know why developers love it this much!
