Nexus Smartphone Section

I have an idea for the Smartphone forum section. Since there are two Nexus branded smartphones made by two separate companies this year, instead of having the threads under forum sections by the different companies, perhaps moving the threads under a forum section titled "Google Nexus" would make it easier for people to find information about this year's models, and also past and future models' threads could go there to.

I like this idea, too. The two phones - from my limited understanding - seem to share the same image sensor as well as fingerprint scanner so there is at least some degree of continuity between the two devices, aside from simple Nexus branding.

I still think Google ought to have their own mobile device manufacturing division to make their Nexus line of devices, which is what I thought they were going to do with Motorola, but then they sold to Lenovo.

 

I keep hoping they would buy out the Sony mobile division and call it the Google Sony Nexus, but I really don't believe that's going to happen. Though if they did, or at least if they would have done something similar in naming when they had the Motorola division, it would have given it a stronger continuity.

 

So yeah, I understand how the idea I mentioned here has both good and bad aspects to it, which really only Google could fix by having a single device vendor, preferably one they own, in my opinion.

I was going to do suggest this as well.  Every time a new Nexus phone is announced or rumored, you have to hunt for who is manufacturing it.  Perhaps a sticky thread with a link to the correct thread in the manufacturer's forum as well to eliminate the hunting.

 

The reverse would also be fine - have a Nexus forum that is only closed threads with links to the thread to each Nexus model in the appropriate manufacturer's forum.  It would be most valuable to casual visitors who aren't going to spend time hunting down threads and would instead just go to another forum to find info and opinions when they can't find the threads here.

This would be a better option.

    • 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.
    • This is a result of the change I mentioned above, sparked by @PedroDaGr8 trying to log AT&T cells with a non-AT&T SIM that was reporting "out of service" but still capturing cell info. For the moment (subject to change as I keep testing and getting feedback), the "Connecting to" prefix will disappear when you connect in a scenario like that. I may adjust it to show a special prefix like "Limited LTE" or "No Data LTE" to make it more clear what is going on, but I also need to make sure that's only appearing at the proper times. When you were seeing just "LTE" in your screenshots, was there anything unusual about your connection? I see the app indicated you couldn't make calls; could you transfer data? Can you send a diagnostic report next time you see that?   I'm seeing this more frequently, unfortunately -- it has something to do with Android's power saving efforts I believe. Was the app in the foreground when it happened? When the screen updates, the notification and home screen widget are also updated -- but as seen with the widget for the past couple of years, Android doesn't always execute the update. I'm constantly trying to find ways around these limitations, since the app is useless if it's displaying stale data.
    • Bleh, hope not.  The eSIM is a huge step backwards to the bad old days and I have no desire to encourage their use. But in any event, maybe I should get Boost service, then, if people are already seeing it.  I can use it for AT&T until Dish native gear goes live in this area.  Have to ponder that a bit. - Trip
