And they will definitely be pricier than the nexus range was,closer to the normal over the top price that itch dost on trying to charge,neither of them I'd going to be much of a phone,and will only sell a little bit better than ordinary HTC's do,I.E,not very well.
It almost looks like HTC have gone back to their xda days and are just going to make phones to other people's designs,not a bad idea,it's been all down hill since the hd2 for HTC..
Anonymous, 30 Aug 2016Google has been trash ever since this guy become the ceo.. Google Android one program a failur... morereally?
hmm then why not you apply Google to take it over and make it change?
I am loving this one can not wait to get one as soon as its out
Google please release a 64GB version as well (if not I will still shut up and take your 32GB)
Looks like what people said is true. The Nexus line really is dead.
Looks like both google and HTC don't want to have anything to do with these ugly phones.
Nice way to betray the loyal Nexus fans who are the people who buy these phones. The Nexus name is cool. "Google" branding is just mass culture and boring.
And "additional software and a tweaked interface atop vanilla Android" just sounds like a skin and bloatware, making Google no different than the other manufacturers and carriers. What's the point? May as well just get any other phone.
Yup, nothing wrong with calling it Google Phone. G - logo nice - classy, look out Apple.
A good alignment with HTC on the 1st too. Google is a pretty awesome, innovative company so no wonder its going premium along with all their other amazing work in so many other areas.
Google has been trash ever since this guy become the ceo.. Google Android one program a failure.. Still haven't seen improvement interms of security against malware and virus on Android.. And now this shit
aatif khan, 30 Aug 2016As a person for me following things matter more than what name it carries: * timely updates o... moreWho said that the branding was for the consumer. Not everything is done for hungry customers like you. This branding was probably because Google is more well known than it brand, Nexus, so these Google phones might sell better, as people know and trust Google.
LG superfan, 30 Aug 2016So no pure android?Another interface on top of Android. So basically makes the argument for just getting a Oneplus 3.
It's dumb how its taking people so long. There hasn't been any renders showing nexus anymore. They are now called Google phones
LG superfan, 30 Aug 2016So no pure android?lol, nothing can be pure than google device
As a person for me following things matter more than what name it carries:
* timely updates of software
* smooth user experience
* good performance of hardware
* reasonable price tag
I would not be bothered for nexus or htc logo anywhere, if above 3 conditions are fulfilled.
This makes sense as the nexus branded phones are getting abit confusing. And also Htc made the first nexus so makes sense that they're making the first non nexus phone from google
Lol google nice start with an 'as ugly as it can get' phone
