Android 7 ROM for the Nexus 5

Android 7 ROM for the Nexus 5

Along with the Nexus 7, the Nexus 5 was also dropped from Google’s update list. Luckily XDA-Developer recognized user Santhosh M has created an ASOP ROM that will bring Nougat to your Nexus 5 device.

Given the hardware that the ROM is running on, the experience is very smooth. Multi window is very fast when you snap windows into place but pulling them out is a little sluggish. YouTube playback is solid along with playback through VLC and MX Player. We also tested a few third party apps like Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. Everything runs very well and this ROM appears to be daily driver ready. Check it out for yourself here.
