i see some nexus 5 similiarities, since i own a nexus 5 and i want a minimalistic design i guess this will suit me fine.. The Nexus 5x and 6p were awfull design wise, and even the build quality was not on par with the newset flagships. This or the OnePlus 3, tough choice.
The Nexus 5 isn't a build quality king but it looks are simply the sexiest, top best looking smartphone around imho

Nexuses are prett... moreI will like the design in which HTC can provide waterproofing. now even apple have gone that way with metal casing, so it cant be an excuse. Its late 2016 .. waterproofing should be a must have feature.
Lazy..i, 18 Sep 2016Whoa. Hold on there dude. Never said others copied iPhone. My point is HTC could have come up ... morebetter designs can be done always agree...but they wont, they cant risk it. too much competition.
Lazy..i, 18 Sep 2016Whoa. Hold on there dude. Never said others copied iPhone. My point is HTC could have come up ... moreFirst I'll wait to see the phone in person to pass any judgement whether there could be something more striking new could be done or not. Except nexus 6P's back no other nexus from any brand looks apart. I always use a case so whether its S7's sexy glass back or htc 10's cold metal i dont care much. there is a saying "dont fix untill its broken" i think every tech company follows that, see how similar Iphone 6/6s/7 is or samsung s6/s7/s7e/note 5/note7 s basic design are or sony's almost every xperia line is..they cant just risk of experiment.

Nexuses are pretty much average looking. Only 1 or 2 devices from that line look aesthetically great.
"...when Huawei and LG had better aesthetics."
Better? No. Nexus 6P's back look great, yes. However the front look every bit as bland as this one. LG's Nexuses are pretty average-looking or dare I say it; bland.

My point is HTC could have come up with a more stunning design. Seeing awful lot of phones with the same design lately, just with minute changes here and there. This one 'LOOKS' (read: outer shell) just dull for a Nexus/Pixel brand, when Huawei and LG had better aesthetics.
I think that there's no nexus or pixel device this year .
it was rumered from april that there is upcoming google device and it seems that it will take long time to release.
it can be fake .
Lazy..i, 18 Sep 2016FOF just because there is an 'i' in my nickname doesn't make me an apple fanboy. I do not even... moreLook up in Google. Apples original iPhone design was that 'metal matchbox' upto 5s.after that they completely copied htc m7s Antena band design. Just because apple sold much better quantity iPhones made it their own 'original design'. You must be a kid or stupid to think all phones copies only apple. Every single brand inspires their design from others. And how much different an unibody metal slab can be. Already almost all phones look same from front. This phone is designed by HTC whose design was copied/inspired by apple iPhones. So its very much original.
Herodroid, 17 Sep 2016lol, apple fanboys always sees every smartphone looking iphoneish, the thing is, iphone 7 plus... moreFOF just because there is an 'i' in my nickname doesn't make me an apple fanboy. I do not even own an iPhone or android. You were so quick to jump to conclusion iphone is this and that. As an unbiased user I still say this looks like a frigging iPhone!
Calm down and understand the comment.
GSMphone, 17 Sep 2016Yes , nexus is better but it's only a smartphone name wih HTC because htc only wants name pixe... moreA) Pixel C is manufactured by Google, not HTC, and B) it wasn't HTC that decided on the name, it was Google.
Anonymous, 17 Sep 2016That seems expensive for a phone. 35,000 euros?in euro 465 to 470 dude.. i said in indian currency
Slayer, 18 Sep 2016And the iPhone looks like the HTC 7, 8 & 9.......duh!At least when you see them you can instantly tell they were made by HTC, not this one though..
No word yet on the display tech. Hope it is LED. Disappointed that the top and bottom bezel are so wide. Hoping for an Exynos version. Also hoping for the same or better camera as the best scoring camera in the HTC 10.
Giant bezels for absolutely no reason. Doesn't even have stereo speakers (not that I need them).
Lazy..i, 17 Sep 2016I'm in the wrong post. I came here to for Pixel pics all I see is iPhone screens. Wait.. Nevermind.And the iPhone looks like the HTC 7, 8 & 9.......duh!
Omg google sabotages windows yet steals the xl wording from nokia/microsoft 950xl plus everything else like Symbian software. Good work google
Lazy..i, 17 Sep 2016Well, it sure looks like iPhonish.. One does not have to blinded by apple. Too bad people jump... morelol, apple fanboys always sees every smartphone looking iphoneish, the thing is, iphone 7 plus will look like a joke in terms of design, when pixel XL comes. Because iphone has 65% screen to body ratio (lmao) and pixel xl will have 75%+ so iphone has massive bezel. And it looks like that pixel XL looks wayy smaller than iphone, and screen will be jusy the same, by comparison look at this made by some reddit guy from r/googlepixel
