Nexus Smartphone Section

Recommended Posts

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.

This is not a bad idea, guys.  But due to historical precedent and potential forum bifurcation (e.g. LG or Nexus?), S4GRU is not apt to implement it.

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.
