So, Mulder and Scully are using the Nexus 5 and 6 in the new X-Files miniseries!

Watching the new X-Files miniseries? No suprise, considering some of you have spent the better part of the past 14 years waiting for Mulder and Scully to return to duty. The new six-part miniseries comes back on track strong, merging the very relevant painpoint of government surveillance with the always fascinating subjects of the extraterrestrial and paranormal.

I want to believe... in Android!

Watching the first episode, those among you with a keen eye may have already spotted Mulder and Scully using Nexus phones! More specifically, David Duchovny's character rocks the original, two-years-old-and-counting Nexus 5, while Gillian Anderson is equipped with a standard, government-issued Nexus 6. Mulder's wearing the Nexus 5 incognito, in a case, while the Nexus 6 is very obviously hiding most of Scully's face with its mammoth footprint. Check out the  screen-grabs in the gallery below!

Another point of interest is the custom launcher the two seem to be using. Up-close, the screens look nothing like stock Android. How cool would it be if the show's creators uploaded their X-Files launcher on Google Play? That would make for the ultimate fandroid service! Then again, we suspect someone on the XDA board will build and deliver the launcher before the guys at Fox make their move. As they say, the truth is out there!

Meanwhile almost every other series/movie is using an iPhone/galaxy S. At least someone cares about nexus phones.

I really wanted to move from the iPhone over to the Nexus but then they decided to make it a bit crap so didn't bother. :\ Hopefully Google taking more in-house will start to make the Nexus a bit more desirable.

This generation is quite nice IMO. I don't like the older ones though.

design-wise, Nexus6 look better than 2 newer nexuses :-/
but they obviously have better spec and camera :P

This is bound to become more common as apple becomes increasingly boring.

well, the actors in teen wolf are using a myriad of devices ranging from the galaxies, the iphones and you guessed it, windows phone (lumia 1020).
the actors in ray donovan also use iphones and windows phones (their budget devices to be specific)

AND the camera app sucks. That or Mulder doesn't know how to use it!

In Suits, I see Mike uses an iPhone while Harvey uses a Galaxy S. In Castle, Castle, Beckett, Espo and Ryan use iPhone. In The Blacklist, the dead Director used an Xperia, while Liz and Donald use Android phones, and Red still likes old Samsung cover style.

Should see Grimm, they are using all Apple stuff but the iMac runs Windows with a skin (Windows blind)

In Castle, they started using iPhone only recently. I remember earlier seasons where they used Lumia. Every new season is probably a bidding contest for product placement by OEMs.

In the first season, Castle used a flip cover phone (Idk the brand), later he used a Windows Phone (I am quite sure it's a HTC HD7) in some episodes. In one, he kept telling "there's an app for this" and his daughter repeated that again. And since then the main cast members have been using iPhone.

There are also a number of new commercials that feature the Nexus 6

Of course they are, those 2 are cutting edge. Especially Mulder.
