PhoneNerd, 26 Sep 20145.92" isn't a very big device, it will fit into most normal size pockets.You must have a big pocket. This phone is way too big.
HammerHead, 26 Sep 2014I think its to big to be the next Nexus most leaks already suggest 5.2" but if it is &quo... moreOrca = the Arctic Killer Whale
Orca is a native language that describes the marine mammal.. still it is inline with the Sea Creatures
This phone is as big as the iPhone 6+. Proof:
Comparison taken from iphone6+ vs G3 and the pic in this post.
Gorgenapper, 26 Sep 2014An orca is not a fish..Correct..Marine Mammal..I just like the name Orca better ;)
I don't understand this obsession with making phones smaller and smaller while sacrificing battery life either. They should aim to sell a phone that you can easily get through a day as a power user plus a smidge more just in case.
Until we see a battery test though I won't just the Shamu, that comment for now refers to a slew of other devices on the market.
Although the size is much bigger then I want it sounds like a very appealing phone. The lack of a
not feeling like next nexus
where is the nexus branding????
this may be moto s
Yes..! A very very good phone... But better to have a mini version..
I just can't wait for android L to come out. I was going to buy this phone but I don't like big phones. Hopefully the original Moto X will get it soon.
I am not buying this giant.
if it's the next nexus then I think Google did a mistake by giving it to Motorola. LG was doing a wonderful job.
Chromium, 26 Sep 2014this wont be new nexus. android L top feature was 64bit. and the new nexus should use 64bit p... moreAfter Android One's debut, one thing should be crystal clear to all of us here; aarch64 Android L's priority has been shifted to a lower/equal degrees to both Nexus and One programs, if not already pre-planned. Consider the Android One phones; $100 specced, not even close to Cortex A53s and guaranteed upds for up to 2 years obviously means L 32 bit (or even M) will still be around to stay. Android One is a good initiative yes but the slight bad is probably it move the 64 bit goal post a bit.
So when the code drops this Nov, it looks like it's up to Note 4 SM-N910C Exynos 5433 (assuming if it's possible to mod it back to run aarch64), HTC Desire 820 & 510 and Lenovo Vibe Z2 to pick up the slack. Sure none of these are those SD808/810 that some of you are hoping for but for dev work to start it doesn't have to be exclusive to just top end A57s to achieve that.... prob now is how will said OEMs contribute to the cause.
PhoneNerd, 26 Sep 20145.92" isn't a very big device, it will fit into most normal size pockets.4-4,5 inch is more than enough. If next nexus phone will be 6" it will be a colossal failure.
Nexus, during the recent years have all specs on par with the top flagships of Android, except for the micro sd slot. Y can't they do it. If they fix that, they can beat Samsung GALAXYs, HTC ONEs.....every one of them in the market.
this wont be new nexus. android L top feature was 64bit. and the new nexus should use 64bit processor.
Just waiting for battery test on this device with android L and that resolution . I guess they again made it wrong . instead of bumping resolution and screen size why dont they bump the battery size ? I mean just few millimeters wont hurt anyway .
