    I have a ASUS zenphone. I am still running Marshmallow 6.1 on it and the speed of my smartphone is not upto the mark. Can upgrading the operating system helps in speed. Recently I read the article on Android 7.0 Nougat Vs Marshmallow and found that ONLY pixel and nexus mobiles get speed and performance benefits while other phone will run on same speed on updating the software. Is it true? Please advice me whether I should update my phone.

    That all depends on how the OEMs implement the latest version of android on their devices. Also it depends on the hardware used in their devices. But seeing as Pixel and Nexus devices are designed to run on stock android right of the bat and they get the OS updates directly from Google. It makes sense that they may get a increase in performance.

    For security sake I would advise that you keep your device updated at all times.
