32gb built in, no sd card, no water proofing, no wireless charging and have the looks of a baby born from iphone 6s and 5c marriage.. definitely not worth $650!!
Plot twist: this project is not only running an operating system.
It's also running out of ideas for the design.

Can't believe after such a long anticipation, Google didn't even include water and dustproof on this device. And frankly, other than the Google assistant and Daydream compatibility, there is really nothing ground breaking. As a die-hard Google fan, I am really disappointed this time.
Unimpressed. Same price as an iPhone 7, so despite being technically superior my daughter will want to follow her sheep-like Apple-following pals.
Google, is starting to stand for too little, too late.
Do I dislike Qualcomm's SnapDragon SOC's or what! I prefer Exynos, Kirin, Spreadtrum & MediaTek.
Anonymous, 04 Oct 2016starting from 649 USD?! This must be a joke with poor taste... Price/performance was the great... moreTotally agree. We dont expect google to compete with HTC, LG or Samsung. But to always raise the bar of how much need to cost a phone with good specs.
Anonymous, 04 Oct 2016starting from 649 USD?! This must be a joke with poor taste... Price/performance was the great... moreLast years 6P 'nexus' also wasnt cheap.. Why suddenly b.tch about googles price one year later?
P.S. Days when customers cry about price is GONE! If customer wants to buy the device then he spends no matter the cost! Apple or Samsung is great example! They are releasing flagships for few years now with even 1000Â€ price tags and ppl buy them, if you cant afford to place all the cash on counter there are many 'contracts' and so on!
Google now also shifted and now follows the same money making principle. Only fair game...
P.S. 'Affordable' is not a trend anymore! ;)
Oceptis, 04 Oct 2016This is great!, an Iphone with Android installedsay what?
Anonymous, 04 Oct 2016It really doesn't look like an HTC at all, I'm surprised that this is true. And also, I'm even... moreThis phone is designed by Google.
Older Nexus phones weren't designed by Google.
