Who should make 2016's Google Nexus device?

Who should make 2016's Google Nexus device?
Soon to turn 6 years old, the Google-headed Nexus brand of Android devices is alive and well. In fact, 2015 brought us a nice surprise in that Google partnered up with both LG and Huawei — the latter of which is a new addition to the list of Nexus makers — to deliver two whole devices. At 5.2 inches, the LG Nexus 5X is quite a bit smaller than the comparatively giant, 5.7-inch Huawei Nexus 6P. They both reviewed well, just like every other Nexus phone in history, and so naturally, we're excited to see what Google has planned for 2016.

It's entirely possible that Google's two-device strategy lives on, and we'll see another set of Nexus-branded smartphones next year, but for the purposes of this poll, we ask that you simply vote for the manufacturer you most want to see making a Nexus in 2016. We've listed as many companies as possible — including ones from China and Japan — to spice things up. 

Without any further ado, let's get down to voting. GO!

Now it's clear that inspite of PA's dislike to Sony, majority of the people loves the Sony's smartphone design language......

liking a smartphone's design doesn't has to do anything with the market share...

I feel like sony is realtively new to the market in a lot of places in the world also... could be the reason they are small.

No doubt! I love the Sony omnibalance design. The most timeless and universal styling on any phone. Now, only the One Plus X challenges it in this dept. My one problem is that the build construction is poor as both me and my buddies Z3 are showing gaps and light bleed from the loosening of the display from the chassis! I voted for Huawei because they did SUCH an awesome job with the 6P, making it the first Nexus in history to challenge and in some examples, outpace the current gen flagships. Second choice would be Google and then Sony.

Never. Sony is a poor crappy losing money company which isn't even listed on the top ten largest smartphones vendors, let alone being qualified to make a Nexus.

You hate Sony not because it's not on the top list, you hate Sony because they're Japanese. I'm not defending them but racism shows just how stupid people are nowadays.

The ones which have the most advanced tech should be the candidates, and look no further but Samsung and LG. But I am afraid that Google doesn't care much about quality, and take profit as priority and hire inexperienced companies like it did recently.

Nexus 6P is the best nexus ever. Google cares about its nexus line and decided to select Huawei which delivered.

Samsung may be the best in the world.but sony is also not bad. When it comes to innovation samsung is the king of android. When it come to design and camera features sony is awesome . They have made excellent devices in the past look at xperia Z ,arcS and Z3.looks better than samsung and LG. Actually sony mobile communications AB sweden make excellent design . Sony has even their own features for android like ps4 remote play and many more. And they even make excellent displays and camera sensors. Even some versions of galaxy S6 to US have the sony camera sensor imx240. And almost all flagship devices use sony sensors now. Because they are the best. So Sony is not an inexperienced company. Please know more before you comment. Since you are a korean i guess you are biased It should be a sony nexus or samsung nexus in 2016. I agree on that.

No one wants your low quality garbage LG. Sony has 10x more advanced technology than Samsung and LG with their 4K screen.

I Would Love To See A Lenovo Or Asus Made Nexus, I Like Their Phone But Not The Socs They Use But Since Google Would Oversee The Project I Think They Could Make An Awesome Nexus.

that will be great since those two usually make bang for buck on middlerange with great quality, and they still dont have proper flagship, it will be good chance for them

I'd love to see an Oppo Nexus. Their hardware is always really good only let down by software.
