    Technically Sony phones get only the Android update, since Sony's skin doesn't change at all, while the M7 has received 2 OEM skin updates as well.
    Sony counterbalances this by updating their core apps at a rate that may be more frequent than HTC.

    My Sony phone doesn't have a skin. It's stock Android.

    Dude if what you own is a Z Ultra GPE model, then that's fine. I own the regular Z Ultra (the C6833) and it uses the Sony skin. Which is light, but not stock.

    And to get technical, Google's version of Android isn't truly pure Android. Pure Android is completely open source, down to the core apps. Google's apps is still proprietary, which makes the version of stock Android in fact stock Google Android.

    Plus, before 5.0, the last few Android updates the regular Z Ultra has been one of the first "non-stock" Android to quickly updated.

    Think for a moment before you declaring what people know and don't know. Seriously.
