Couldn't agree more. Wow. Anyway I think it's the same design as the ones of the G3 rumours.

By the time the Snapdragon 810 is released next year, I think Android flagships will have 4GB of RAM.

And if they sport 64bit processors.

Who in their right mind would use a phone with a 19 yr old teens name on it. That's just sad.

Barely looks any bigger than the Nexus 5, which i personally think is pretty manageable.

Totally agree. My Nexus 5 fits nicely in my hands (of course everybody's hands are different.) In fact, I invite a larder screen... The navigation bars on Android kill so much screen real estate anyways. To me 5.7 is a very nice step up, looking forward to it.

Nexus fans should have done better concept than this, disgusting

Enjoying your disgusting hardware home button and excessive bloat on your Sammy?

Hardware buttons are the best. Also you can get rid of the "bloat". What is bloat anyway? The fact that I can control my entire home theatre setup using my phone's IR and you can't? Would that constitute "bloat"? What about the fact that I actually have a usable panoramic mode unlike that which comes with stock android? Or maybe the fact that i can actually use my phone for university work (math) using my s-pen? Does all that count as bloat?

"Hardware buttons are the best" = Clearly an opinion which can be disputed 'til the end of time, but if you like it then I'm really happy for you. "The fact that I can control my entire home theatre setup using my phone's IR and you can't?" = Pure speculation about which phone I have, and I hate to burst your bubble but my phone is not a Nexus. You have 2 more tries before you strike out. Re: your other statements, I care not to spend more time going back-n-forth with you for fear of getting sucked into an endless debate. Nothing else to read here...move along.

Bloatware is any unnecessary software on a device, generally provided by a manufacturer or carrier, that can't be removed by the user. Things like S-pen and an IR blaster are obviously hardware accessories and not bloat. On a side note, there is no need for an IR blaster when you can control everything in your house via wifi.

A little smaller screen and add waterproofness and I would buy instantly

And add memory card slot...........I'm there! Great concept phone, just wish Google is listening!

Good luck. I'd bet $1000 that Google won't throw in a SD card in there.

Yeah sure!! HTC wish they could build a phone with such small bezels with boom-sound speakers. If this was designed with HTC current capabilities in mind that phone would probably be close in size to the Sony Z Ultra. lol!!

5.7" screen? Good god NO! More like 4.7" I have been buying the nexus line up since Google Nexus one but that's going to stop if that monstrosity is released.

I had that exact reaction when I saw this. I like the size of my current Nexus 5. I really hope that they don't follow Samsung, LG, HTC, and everyone else that makes their phones bigger every year. Google should just draw a line at 5" and keep it that way. Still, looking forward to the Nexus 6, though :D

Every Nexus Phone thus far has had a bigger screen than its predecessor, so you saying that you hope they don't follow other OEMs doesn't make any sense. They already have. Chances are it will continue to happen as well.

Chances are they won't. They could have saved a lot of money and could have had a superior screen if they used the exact same screen as the G2. However, they felt 5.2 was too big and didn't want to use back buttons so they shrunk it. Remember the Nexus 4 used the exact same panel as the Optimus G. If you follow the Google logic, chances are fzacek will get his wish. Google has a pretty good read on the market and they will probably stick with 5 inches and just shrink the phone.

If you think logically, you will see that the growth cannot go on forever. It will have to stop somewhere, as our hands can only be so big. What I am saying is that I hope Google will draw that line at 5" for the Nexus line...
