I miss a pixel-phablet and don't tell me 5,5" is phablet-size! Its not!
So the cances for Huawei, Xiaomi or Le Eco get bigger and bigger to be one of my next phones.
Anonymous, 17 Sep 2016Lol sailfish and Martin are great names. Imo Google should name this only. these are just codenames, (google calls all their nexuses with fish names)
Security should be the most priority. So Google pixel and Apple are the most trusted and bang for the buck as they both supports device more than a year. Every other OEM lacks in this department. Be it security patches, bug fixes or New os except those two all will be late,
If the price of XL starts form 600 to 700 will you buy it or go for other phones with same specs with budget prices..
Zenodroid, 17 Sep 20162015 hardware in a brand new phone = reason nexus/pixel phones arent worthy of my money. it wi... moreSD 820 2nd version it is. Which might be sd821. Every 2016 android flagship have same chip. How it's 2015s tech then? Optimization is the key not the specs apple is a perfect example of that. And nexus is best in optimization than any other android phone. Look what oneplus did earlier with 6gb ram gimmick. Later they fixed the ram now it suffers battery backup issue. Earlier nexus phones might not be a complete package but 2015 nexus phone was a great step in right direction in almost every aspect. Great build, battery and camera and software update. In 2016 with same spec in both compact and phablet it's again a excellent decision. It will be great hit.
One query with this, love HTC, i've had pretty much the whole line up, but one little gripe.
The camera!! got the HTC 10 at the moment and it's a great phone, better than anything on the market at the moment and the camera can take a great shot, but it's not without issues, for a point and shoot it's not the best, the lens gets murky and causes glare, the auto focus can be problematic, video can be choppy, amongst other things.
I just hope they nail it this time, they deserve a break as they've given android a lot, and people do tend to forget that.
AnonD-510098, 17 Sep 2016Actually, the Huawei Mate 9 will be betterWhat are you talking about, Nokia 3310 are obviously better XD
Anonymous, 17 Sep 2016Google is falling. They are next Nokia.Hahaha this is joke of 2016. You forgot who is the parent of 'Android'. Google isn't even in smartphone makers arena that's why they even sold Motorola. They are software based company. If they ever decide to stop distribution of android os.. All other Oem will be gone,yeah like Nokia. There will be only Google and apple. But again Google's business is data, so more the user more data, more money so no licensing of android is happening very soon.. And Google isn't going anywhere soon
2015 hardware in a brand new phone = reason nexus/pixel phones arent worthy of my money. it will prob cost like 5-600$ like an s7 or other better phones.
This phone will be the best android fablet thanks to explosive 7 which also lags like hell, get scratches too easily and as a plus point it will be much cheaper. Pixel phone will be better and safe product. I'm willing to buy this phone if it looks better than the render.
Lol sailfish and Martin are great names. Imo Google should name this only.
AnonD-428442, 17 Sep 2016Wait, a home button? WTF? Come on Google, you alr day had a great design with the on screen bu... morecalm down, it will not have home button... It's just an image to "display" how a smartphone will look like in this case, but the case might be real, i mean, these cut outs, but not the image.
Physical buttons are always better. They don't take up screen space and easy to use too. But I'd prefer and front facing speaker in that blank space.
AnonD-292864, 17 Sep 2016Great design ? On-screen buttons are the worst design choice.I know, they ruin a phone imo
