Google partnering with LG for the next Nexus phone
0. phoneArena 03 May 2013, 07:14 posted on
LG received a big boost for its mobile business by becoming the manufacturer of the fourth Nexus phone last year, the Nexus 4. Of course, that shouldn't be attributed to pure luck or something like that. There was a certain period last year when LG managed to outperform its competitors in the Android industry by introducing some pretty amazing tech...

LOL, why are you getting dislikes?
Probably because no nexus from Samsung.

I guess they want Google to partner with Sony, HTC, Huawei etc. to make a Nexus.

Probably because they don't own a Nexus 4. Don't get me wrong, i wouldn't mind Samsung, HTC, or Sony making the next Nexus. But LG making it is not a bad choice by Google. The Nexus 4 was, and still is, a great piece of hardware.

I do agree. Nexus from Sony.. um, not now but I think HTC is now mature enough to gear up the nexus line up. HTC one is the best example of their maturity. Its the best monster out there!

Because people give red thumbs if you've ever said something negative about what they love, or something positive about something they hate. Red thumbs rarely have much to do with the actual comment you just made, it's about how people hold childish, insecure grudges based on comments you made weeks/months previously.
Red thumbs on this comment in 3..2..1

If there is a next LG nexus they must focus on camera and music features! Get a good lens and a better audio chip!

I keep wondering why PA is not blocking you even you are trolling Nokia and LG but whenever I comment against Apple and Samsung they block me.
P.S Phonearena is biased.
Now they are going to block me

If Google would have released a Nexus 4 LTE for Verizon I would have bought it, but now the only phone for me will be the EPIC Samsung Galaxy Note III.
I can't even imagine what a 6" 1080p full HD screen will look like. All I can say is that it will indeed be super sexy.

There are two maybes for the EPIC Samsung Galaxy Note III,
1. Same design again
2. New beautiful design with BEASTY specs and features
And for me, I will choose number 2, I believe in Samsung this time, they need to make the Galaxy Note III EPIC!

It's always going to be BEASTLY. The Note series typically has killed the Galaxy S series historically. I really see no difference this time around.
Samsung can hit it out of the park if they ever put a metal casing on the Note III. Let's see what comes of it. Either way it will be Samsung's best mobile device EVER.

Those are not LG haters, those peoples want Google to partner with other manufacturers, not LG again. :)

Why? What phone has LG produced that has truly wow'ed anyone? None of the LG devices have impressed me. I love their TVs but just haven't been impressed with their phones.

LG isn't that good, the camera, touchscreen and overall durability of the nexus 4 were horrible
37. xperiaDROID (banned) (Posts: 5629; Member since: 08 Mar 2013)
Are you sure? I've tried the Nexus 4 before and it is nice, the only bad thing is the Nexus 4's back is slippery.

May be it's time for HTC... Impress with one....

I want it to be oppo :(

Hmm......it will be possible if Oppo wants to make Nexus, but Oppo didn't think about that yet.

Camera - not the best, downloaded LG's camera app and now it performs amazingly.
Touchscreen - Oustanding!
Durability - Mine is still in perfect condition, and I'll trade durability for premium look/feel any day.

Best phone I've ever owned, and I've had 3 HTC's and 3 Samsung's previously. Build quality is outstanding.
Thanks for the LG camera app tip, I'll search Play for it.
