Which manufacturer should make the next Nexus device? (poll results)
posted by Chris P. / Feb 26, 2015, 5:04 AM
on Monday who you think the next manufacturer to make a Nexus device should be, and scores of you (over 5,000) spoke up. The poll is now closed, the results are in, and it's time for us to share them with you.We asked you
As it turns out, the public's clear favorite (30.68%) for the job is Sony, and that makes a lot of sense. That is, while Sony is currently struggling financially, it's hard arguing against the overall quality of its handsets, not to mention that it's one of only two major manufacturers (Chinese brands excluded) that hasn't yet had a shot at it. Second on the list is HTC, with 18.9% of the votes, and that too makes sense – HTC manufactured the very first Nexus device (the HTC Nexus One), and that was many years ago. The number three spot is nearly tied, with Samsung winning 11.66% of the votes, while its cross-town rival LG received 11.22% of them.

jsyk they wont be calling it the "Xperia Nexus" but more like "Sony Nexus something" because anything that doesn't have Sony's apps and optimization won't never be an Xperia take the Sony Z Ultra for example

LOL....why so harsh ? Its only logical. Samsung has one the latest, best and vertically integrated hardware in the smartphone business. And we all know Google is the best when it comes handling the software side of things. So WHY NOT SAMSUNG ? Its not Google or consumers' fault that Sony is a failing business. They didn't do it right and they are paying the price. Why should consumer suffer just because Sony is unable to carry out a successful business and needs Google's help ? Think practically not like a fanboy.

We think that Xiaomi, OnePlus should not be in the list, i think lenovo too !! Sony should be given a chance !! HTC is a must but as we know that this time they made the Nexus 9 its kinda difficult maybe Motorola will make another Nexus we can also see from Samsung as they are also in line of best devices its hard to say as of now

Sony was offered to build the first nexus. Perhaps PA can mention that in the article as an interesting fact.http://thenextweb.com/mobile/2

Yeah they screwed their opportunity back them... but after that they started implementing things very closely to what google wanted... the first batch of Sony (sans Ericsson) phones were without SD card slots, Sony almost always offer tools for easily unlocking the bootloader, the UI design has been closer to stock than other major manufacturers... etc... So yea, they shouldn't have turned down the first offer years ago, but they deserve to have a second shot at a Nexus device.
