I was going to preorder both Nexus phones but now I'm going to have to wait for the reviews. The articles I'm reading over at Android Police have made me rethink my choice about buying them. I really don't want to hear "this phone is good for the price".

Agreed, really wanted the new nexus phones to come with the 820 instead of 808/810.

I know the 820 isnt out yet. Not sure about the performance of the 808, but I don't game on my smartphone and stock is optimized better, so that shouldn't be an issue.

So you have never seen it in person, touched it, played with it, but yet you are against it because of some specs in your head make it seem less of a phone. Stock Android flies, on less specked phones than this. This phone (or the 6p) will be fantastic for those of us that want to run Google's latest OS and dont need a $700 + priced "flagship". Just saying...I am excited!

The looks I like (the Nexus 5x) but.. no wireless charging, no OIS, only 32GB max. And while 2GB should be enough, my current phone has more. Not to mention the screen to body ratio isn't that great. And I don't care for stock or not since I put a custom rom on every phone I own. So it's a no go for me

2GB of raam? What is this, 2012 or something? Thats why iPhones are the best, they are always ahead of the pack

You're wasting time replying to people like...him...her...tranny?... Sad thing is that PA only bans the non-Apple equivalent of those, tho there aren't that many (non-Apple equivalent fans around).. That QWERTY guy would have been banned because of his hate for Apple but because he posts retarded comments about other OEM's smartphones, PA is just relaxing.

Listen up, junior. I'm educated and fair with my criticism. Frankly, I was doing government/corporate wireless sales before you were even born. We both know what would happen if you insulted me with a tranny comment to my face.

Quite sure nothing would happen.

I used the word "tranny" on that snake user. You're just as bad as it, if you're gonna criticise then criticise without spamming and put sense into it. The way you comment makes you look like a mentally disturbed psycho using a computer at a mental hospital.

Why should I take the time to type a whole article to state what intelligent people like me already know? I'd rather just type: NO REMOVABLE BATTERY & SD = FAIL 2GB = FAIL It's not "spam" if it's true.

Look at what spam means. With your concept of spam, those spamming with the comments "the sky is blue" isn't spamming. Idk why PA does a late ban on retards, these days.

Iphones have 1 gig ram besides the latest ones. By your logic you should be welcoming the 6s and 6s+ to 2012.

if you have logic like that, then welcome to the world. you are comparing an orange with apple. 2GB of RAM in iOS > 4GB of RAM in Android.

Better, worse or equal is totally subjective

Too big/wide.

Wait... fingerprint and smudge resistant display? This has got to become the new standard!

The camera sounds like it will be the best camera and smoke the iPhone 6s camera on paper. That will be the day Miket, papasmurf, and ninety six commit suicide. Lol The Nexus 5 had the hardware too though with OIS and the whole shebang but the software killed it. Let's hope Google learns from the past.

Biggest issue is price. Should be $299

I'm a little disappointed at no fast charging. Is this bc USB-C?

why souldn't it have wireless charging? Since the Nexus 4 all devices had wireless charging until now.
