Poll results: Nexus, you shall be missed... sort of
posted by Paul K. / Oct 05, 2016, 9:11 AM
The Nexus smartphones were the result of a collaboration between Google and a popular manufacturer. They usually carried a lot of the DNA of said manufacturer's smartphones — in some cases, you could say that the Nexus for a particular year looks like a spinoff of its creator flagship for the same period, only with vanilla Android and software support directly from Google.
With the Pixels, Google is taking over, it seems, and while it may still sign deals with smartphone manufacturers to build the actual phone, it looks like the company wants to control the full user experience — outside and in.
We thought we'd ask you — will you miss the Nexus line? Are you happy with a Google Pixel line? Or do you just not care, as long as the devices are good? Here's how the votes tallied up!
Will you miss the Google Nexus line?
Yes, I weep for our sweet Nexus!
I don't really care, as long as the Pixels are good products.
No, I am super-excited for a phone that is more Google and less someone else!

How are they 'Sh*t'? Because the specs are top of the line. Both in terms of hardware and software. Pricing is a different story. But 'sh*t'? GTFO Guy

Good riddance, Nexus devices built after the Nexus4 were all cheap junk.

Agreed. The 6p was hideous and cheap, glad I waited for the pixel xl.

I will miss the excitement of finding out who is building the next Nexus and what they may bring to the table. Sometimes it was meh and sometimes it was great the Nexus 4, 5, and 6p were all amazing! I had a Galaxy Nexus which was ridiculously good for its time imo aside from the absolutely absurd battery life it had

Have to agree, the Galaxy Nexus was the best. Everything just worked the way it was intended to work. And yes was durable, not many can make those claims. Now we have Pixels for the Pixies, how cute.
