Who should make 2016's Google Nexus device? (poll results)
posted by Chris P. / Dec 16, 2015, 3:14 AM
phone makers have had more than a single shot at the paradigm, with Samsung and LG coming on top with two and three devices, respectively. Still, it's obviously not a case of Google favoring just one manufacturer, and so makers the world over have the opportunity to to participate. This makes the obligatory annual Nexus rumor phase kind of interesting, as we're always guessing who Google will partner up with next. But who Google ends up collaborating with does not always coincide with what the community would rather have. So we typically ask for your input, just like we did yesterday.Some of the above
Nearly 3,100 of our users chose to participate, giving us a robust sample. And our audience's favorite? Sony, with almost a quarter (~25%) of the votes, gets the honor. Second in line is Samsung with about 16%, followed by Google itself with 12%, LG with 10%, and HTC with 8%. Huawei and Motorola grabbed ~7% and ~6% of the votes, respectively. In a way, these results make some sense, as Sony is the only maker not to have taken a stab at a Nexus, at least in terms of established brands. The idea that Google itself could produce a Nexus is also pretty intriguing, especially now that we know that it can do hardware with the Pixel C tablet.

Well, in a presumed effort to keep their phones relatively cheap as possible, Google has apparently preferred to work with either emerging or 're-emerging' companies if we look back. LG wasn't too big until they got the Nexus contract. Motorola was in trouble until they got it. Asus was pretty unknown in many markets for tablets - until the Nexus 7. I think that Google will go with the companies that need a boost the most and thus will be the most prepared to play ball with them. I'm thinking maybe Meizu, Lennovo, or one of the other upcoming brands with a smaller footprint that would be capable of delivering a quality product that people will still be able to afford in sufficiently large numbers. In return, these companies would get the big break in the US market that they need and then they would be able to market other devices there much more easily.
