divis200, 09 Oct 2016I don't see why would people hate something as small as a name change... Everything will stay ... moreExactly. The prices have increased but if that's what you want you could always get a phone like onePlus 3. The bezels and price is probably thanks to htc anyway, which would have been here even if it was a 'nexus'. We can hope it gets better next year and Google tries to do more. It's not bad for a first shot.
Just when everyone start to know that "Nexus" = "Google" they change it to "Pixel"? If Google want to compete with Apples iPhone then they need to start making "Google" phones!
Going from Nexus to pixel is like going from Lexus to Toyota.
Quality & classy to cheap & nasty.
both nexus and pixel series are nonsense!!! in fact pure android is nonsense. Chinese UIs are beautiful like EMUI or MIUI. pure android in nexus and sony and moto is without aesthetics and useful apps.
This decision is the worst decision ever made by google... Left behind the brand flagship isn't the greatest of the moves... Only the name can make a huge impact on the falgship value.
divis200, 09 Oct 2016I don't see why would people hate something as small as a name change... Everything will stay ... morethats because with the name change google has essentially wiped out the idea of a quality phone with decent hardware at prices that rival chinese companies..now with iphone range prices, pixel phones dont really give many reasons to choose them over the competition
I don't see why would people hate something as small as a name change... Everything will stay the same, except the phones are going to be designed by google. They want to make profit for themselves, not boost some other companies names. At first nexus sounded childish too, at least for me. People wanted nexus line because of pure stock android. How is it different now? If it wasn't for that stupid pixel movie, people wouldn't think it's childish.
Hoffmann, 09 Oct 2016I agree with you. Nexus sounded so much professional and cool. Pixel is just stupidYeah, don't forget their colour naming schemes.
Very Silver, Really Blue, and Quite Black. XD
Browndynamite.., 09 Oct 2016Pixel sounds like some kids toyI agree with you. Nexus sounded so much professional and cool. Pixel is just stupid
Why did Google go with this decision? Why?! Nexus 6P was a beast phone, aswell as every other Nexus phone in the past.
I never use a nexus because i think almost all models nexus has flaws that are important to me like motorola nexus 6 should be above the front camera of 5 megapixels, nexus 5x unattractive design, nexus 6p using processors is often hot, so i dont care about the nexus line :D
Yp, definitely I will miss nexus. At least Nexus was affordable in India. Now Pixel is not even relevant in India as it's pricing is almost equal to iPhone 7. Why the hell all these brands suddenly think India is a premium market. Even honor and zenfone are demanding premium here. Long live one plus and Samsung and Motorola.
Yeah instead they release slightly better phone for significantly more money
People who want cheap android phone update directly from google can buy android one
People who want cheap android phone with premium spec can buy chinese phone
Cheap but premium with update from google? Wake up, you're living in a dream for too long.
not really actually. nexus has been always expensive in my country. there is little point if at all
I will definitely miss it. New Pixels both seem to be just... Not interesting devices.
The nexus branding for me, sounded a lot better than the one we have now. And I also don't like the way they're pricing their handsets higher and higher. I thought their goal was to get as many pure stock android phones to as many people as possible? This would effectively showcase to more people their pure OS experience.
