What do you tell your wife when you bring home a new Mate?

The Nexus 6P is downright fugly.  It has a backside that only Sir Mix-a-Lot could love.






For some god forsaken reason it reminds me of bender from futurama.



Its pretty ugly from its backside, the front (which doesn't look horrible) looks like an iphone 5..smh!

I am just waiting for the other shoe to drop -- for Google to announce that the Nexus 6P is both a phone and a vacuum cleaner.



Some have suggested it could have some Project Tango innards built in. If that truly were the case, it could very well justify its last place beauty contest looks..

Has anyone seen this or the LG Nexus 5X pass through the FCC?  Wondering if this is even going to be a device that works on the Sprint network.  I'm loving the Moto X Pure not really a fan of the look of the Nexus 6P.  I think I made a good choice.


What about price, has that dropped yet?

Haven't heard a word on pricing yet.  I would expect that next Tuesday at the Nexus announcement.

That is undoubtedly the ugliest thing on a phone I can think of.

Due to my vision impairment, I was really looking forward to the Nexus 6P.  I've never owned a Nexus and will not purchase a carrier specific phone again.


I'll keep an open mind when it comes to the 6P and the 5X.  It may shake out when I go with the Moto X Pure, or possibly even pick up a Nexus 6 (2014) on the cheap until next year.


Man that thing is superf'nugly.

What I don't understand, is that the Huawei Nexus 6 is the same size as the Motorola Nexus 6 in dimensions but the Motorola managed to have a bigger screen and still have decent speakers. Why does the Huawei seem to have such a larger screen to bezel ratio. That is what disappoints me the most about the device! Everything else I could probably give a pass to.

I figured out the reason for the ugly black window on the back.  That is the Huawei and Chinese government "backdoor" engineered into the handset.






Uhh ohh.  Where did I put my tin foil hat?  You know my feeling on the Chinese government.  I know they are all after my Lucky Charms!

      The rumor mill has fully geared up, so it seems time for a thread in which the potential HTC-made 2016 Nexus phones can be discussed.
      Rumors suggest two phones: a 5" device codenamed Sailfish, and a larger device codenamed Marlin. Both are thought to be produced by HTC. [There's also a report that Google is making its own phone, without an OEM partner--along the lines of a Pixel phone--but that report has been largely discounted.]
      Android Police has claimed it knows with 8/10 certainty some specs of the smaller device--Sailfish:
      Manufactured by HTC 5" 1080p display (~440PPI) Quad-core 2.0GHz 64-bit processor (model unknown) 4GB RAM 2770mAh battery 32GB storage (unknown if multiple models will be available, or even if this is the base storage level) 12MP rear camera, 8MP front Rear-mounted fingerprint scanner USB-C port (bottom) Bottom-firing speaker or speakers (unknown if dual) Top-mounted headphone jack Bluetooth 4.2 Any thoughts on these devices? The last several Nexus devices have been Sprint compatible; is there any reason to think these won't be? Any hints in regulatory filings? How is HTC's radio performance, generally? Will Sprint sell them directly, and even if they do, will it still be preferable to buy directly from Google?

      Had not seen a thread for this yet, 
      I see some definite consumer advantages with Sprint's Network combined with TMob and Wi-fi.
      I have had many Nexus devices and I love my Nexus 6, although it is a bit big.
      The price is good for the service. ($20 / unl talk/txt, $10/gb)
      I hope the technical aspects work as they propose. I am a Google Voice Number user and love the "Any device" call capability and use it on my Tablet, Chromebook and phone. I rarely actually answer my Phone at the house. Answer the tablet or Chromebook.....
      I love Sprint's network, the upgrades they are putting forth and this Site, but if Project Fi works as advertised, it might lure me to sign on.....
      What are everyone's thoughts?

    • Edit: Disregard, what I previously posted here was a previously starred bug.  
    • This convert site is funny to me. T-Mobile reserved a pole at this same intersection for a small cell in Dec 2017, finally installed it in July 2020, only for the small cell to be planned for decommissioning a little less than 1 and a half years later thanks to a convert site. It looks like the roof was rebuilt/re-enforced for the new setup too. The roof line is a little higher at the front of the building with new bricks.
    • Or, more simply, have a physical SIM that I can just move from one device to another.  Problem [already] solved.  Carrier doesn't have to be involved at any point in the process. I'll be among many (I'm sure) who will be glad to know if you see it.  Here in the DC area, Dish hasn't really done much yet.  I think I've seen some Dish gear around Richmond, but nothing here. - Trip
    • I like VICE.  They actually report on news no one else is willing to report. A lot of the places they go no sane person would want to be there.  They put their life on the line in many cases to get a story. From stories about the avocado wars in Mexico, being in the front lines against ISIS and Ukraine, to being embedded with terrorist organizations.   FAA might have some conspiracy 5G nut on their team or something.  At work ever year we have some one come in and say "hey, can you turn off the WIFI in my room? I don't want its radiation".  It doesn't make sense and their reasoning is always uneducated conspiracy. I can see someone coming into my office and acting crazy over C band disregarding everything else.
    • I think on esims it depends on how they implement it. If you can freely activate them on one phone while having it loaded on many that would be great.   I will let you know when I see Boost Mobile native 5g live here. So far no sign of even the plmn being active which I figure will be my first indicator. I look at changing networks with the TNX Sim and seem to get a full list of all carriers and their alternate plmns.
