Google’s Pixel telephones have been close to considering the fact that 2016, but these gadgets had been preceded by the Nexus line of smartphones. The Nexus telephones were being built by other OEMs but effectively constructed to Google’s specs and available a pure get on Android.
We recently marked seven decades since the last Nexus cellular phone released (the Nexus 6P), but also requested viewers whether or not they missed the Nexus line. Effectively, we acquired lots of votes, so here’s how that turned out.
Do you miss the Google Nexus series?
Just in excess of 2,000 votes were being counted, and we have a runaway winner on our fingers. A large 87.04% of respondents stated they in fact skipped the Nexus sequence. Judging by the remarks, there is simply just a good deal of nostalgia for these phones. But there was also something seriously cool about Android OEMs like Samsung, LG, and Huawei releasing gadgets underneath the Google banner.
Meanwhile, a miniscule 6.82% of surveyed audience say they only really don’t overlook the Nexus line. Finally, 6.15% of respondents say they missed some of the Nexus phones.
It’s really worth pointing out that not each Nexus phone was a vital strike, with units like the Nexus 6 becoming dear and chunky to boot. Nexus phones like the Nexus 5X and 6P also had important problems like these dreaded boot loop difficulties. So we are not surprised that some viewers are not 100% keen on the sequence.
- Mark McCoskey: I experienced the Nexus 6 (which T-Cell/OnePlus gave me $300 for as a trade-in for my present 6T) with the Nexus 5x as a backup. I’d individually enjoy to see the return of the 5.2-inch Nexus 5x, but bezelless, with the 16:9 ratio, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. Back again to fundamentals.
- I loved my 6P until eventually the bootloader and battery problems. At minimum Google was wonderful ample to replace the phone—which I’d possibly experienced for 18 months by that point—with a model-new Pixel XL. That was a entertaining (and totally free) update. A person matter I nevertheless miss out on, however, are the 6P’s speakers. Phones today all claim to have “stereo” speakers, but it is normally a little something blasted out of the earpiece and a base-firing speaker. The 6P had real, well balanced stereo speakers, and they were great. I’ve however not listened to their equivalent when I’m consuming media and desire I had well balanced audio. (And I’m not saying the speakers on their own have been top of the line, simply just that they had been legitimate stereo.)
- Sean McNair: Wonderful phone, till I satisfied the bootloop of dying! I was ready to make the most of my insurance coverage policy to get paid the total cost of the telephone. I also received settlement cash. I definitely loved that system, specially the digicam for that time!
