PA always missing an option. Still undecided here. 2015 Nexus line quite underwhelming.

Nexus is the phone for people who want the latest Android first, and the best phone/features last.

I wanted to swap my S6 cause of its bad battery, but the specs of the 2 nexus's are unimpressive so I guess I have to see the reviews 1st then make my choice

If I get a Nexus, it'll be a 5x. But I'm leaning towards the z5c.

Neither. This will be the first nexus in a few generations that I haven't purchased one. I think the LG looks very generic with ho-hum specs and the Huawei looks terrible design wise.

I liked both design the Huawei 6P , but the leaked specifications I did not like very much!

Time to upgrade my nexus 5 to 5x hopefully better battery this time. P.s.s phone arena website is terrible when entering comets on tablet in Landscape mode. Fix please.

Nope...and that's a shame really. Unless 6P is capable of pulling off a nice batt life surprise then it looks like Lenovo Vibe X3 is a better deal than 5X. Hell if Lenovo know what's good for them and just ship a proper Moto-like UX for X3 then that's a deal maker right there.

I'm not confident enough with the Snapdragon chipsets and both design failed to lure me to get any of them.

Whoever is saying no to Nexus will eventually curse google for the non-availability, when they try to buy one..

I might cop a black 6p if its metal and super AMOLED

I'm always disappointed with the battery life for Nexus devices. I'm also trying to hold out until the Snapdragon 820 is released.

I really want a Nexus device, but I still need to get that microSD slot. Alas, those two are mutually exclusive.

If the Nexus 5x is dirt cheap I might cave in.

I really wouldn't mind the Nexus 6P depending on reviews, though the Sony Z5 Prime and Meizu MX5 Pro are very enticing too. Marshmallow might win me over.

They come in gold. Wonder where Huawei and LG got that idea...

No microSD = no deal.
