How do you like the designs of the new Nexus phones?
posted by Chris P. / Sep 29, 2015, 12:53 PM
The long wait — which felt like years thanks to the recurrent leaks — is finally over. The Google Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P, built by LG and Huawei respectively, have arrived on the scene, and will be looking to make some friends as well as some enemies.
As a rule of thumb, we try to put as little stock as possible in device renders — even official ones — for we know that they can be misleading. A cheap-feeling phone can look great when rendered, and vice-versa. Still, we couldn't help but wonder whether people like what's on the table with the new Nexus phones, design-wise. We won't try and influence your opinion, so we won't comment on them just yet. Speak your mind.
So, how do you like them Nexus smartphones? Pretty? Not pretty? Generic-looking?
Do you like the Nexus 5X's design?
Do you like the Nexus 6P's design?

I just preordered the 64gb 6P and New chromecast. Came out to 709.50 after tax (and with the protection plan). I fell in love with the aluminum color.

The camera hump doesn't seem to be nearly as pronounced as what the renders were. It looks like a nice phone.

Depends which renders you're talking about. Mine looked exactly like the real one, except the color... ;)https://twitter.com/OnLeaks/st

Probably what I'll go with. The hardware doesn't need to be flashy, the software will take care of that and more.

Looks wise I'll give you that, I never was into to dress up with Barbie dolls like some of you seem to be. Good job Google you got the prices right this time. Can't wait to get 6.0 next week for my nexus 5 2013.
