Not having a removable battery and no microSD card slot is an automatic no from me. And to piss me off even more, Google squeezes the OEMs for profit on their Nexus lines to the point that the OEMs usually get shafted hard. Google is becoming a dick, I really hope their "more control" shtick stops.
Iunian, 01 Feb 2016I got an idea ... We don't care about Android! How about that? ;)so why do you post in a Android related article (?)
Doesn't matter. The Nexus phones are only available in limited market, and even then, markets outside the US see their prices highly inflated.
AnonD-296725, 02 Feb 2016lg messed up with plastic build again. if 5x was better build like aluminium or glass, probabl... moreI believe design of nexus device doesn't really matter as it is aimed at android developers mainly. Note there is no sdcard or removable battery such as the LG G4 and other devices popular with consumers. That tells us consumers aren't what google had in mind for the nexus line
Much needed, atleast Nexus line will be free of any sorta hardware frag
Anonymous, 01 Feb 2016All-aluminum phones are really overhyped and after owning one (One M8), I can say that I'm not... moreBetweel all-aluminium and all-plastic, there are a lot of different possibilities, like carbon fiber, kevlar, metal frames, glass, etc.
lg messed up with plastic build again. if 5x was better build like aluminium or glass, probably would've sell more than 6p even with lower spec. this why google should takeover, have total control
"And it's been rumored countless times that even as things stand today Google doesn't let partners profit a lot from the Nexus line, so clearly such a tie-up wouldn't be about the money-making opportunities."
I hope this rumor is true. And yes, I like the idea of them taking control over their Nexus line. It could either spell more affordable Nexuses (than it currently is marketed for) or draw space-and-rocket-high out-of-this-dimension Apple-like prices. On another note, I hope they do the same thing with their One program. Maybe, we could see $50 Ones

Anonymous, 01 Feb 2016Google is moron, they should never leave Samsung for making Nexus line. And now, people are c... moreSeriously? The Samsung Nexus devices were the crappiest, most plasticy, cheapest of the Nexus devices, with terrible call/audio quality. A huge step down from the original Nexus One by HTC and nowhere near as good as the LG Nexus 4 and 5. Every Nexus device not by Samsung has been better.
Nexus phone prices are too high, Try making affordable and good quality like Xiaomi
Nexus device is aimed at android developers mainly and not at consumers in general
Here is a comment of which I speak GSMARENA---."A successful management brings good results for any company.
And if everything is not just a donut artificially?
Many under the hood is in this reaction Google.Basically it is unnatural, because, in my opinion, not that other, as a game image."
How is it possible to protect another nick (anonymous) in place my nick Skyfall ?
