Keith I Myers – 2016-04-28 09:59:12-0400 – Updated: 2016-04-28 10:03:20-0400With all of the talk that HTC may be manufacturing 2 #Nexus Devices – I just need to get something off my chest. If the rumors are true, HTC will be put in a unique position to shape the future of Android.
Although Nexus Devices are not historically known for having cutting edge features (with the exception of SoC) – over the years, we have gotten spoiled with the amazing stereo sound that was introduced with the Nexus 6 and carried onto the Nexus 6P. Your previous generation BoomSound was the only thing that could rival the audio of the Nexus 6 and Nexus 6P. The sound system in the HTC 10 is not going to cut it. A few other features that have been improved is the Camera and Battery – Dont lower the bar.
HTC needs to move the fingerprint reader to the back of the phone. If anyone has played with the Nexus 9P, 5X or LG Line of phones, they will understand why it makes more sense.
Most Importantly – If even thinks about giving us an iPhone clone with the Nexus Branding, I will loose my s#!t with them. The HTC A9 was a blatant request for a lawsuit from Apple – If they go with an offshoot of the HTC 10, they may have a winner.

I use it constantly. David Smith – 2016-04-28 10:52:21-0400Good thing +Google usually modifies or designs the aesthetic of Nexus Devices. Alexander Grenon – 2016-04-28 10:53:50-0400 – Updated: 2016-04-28 10:57:11-0400HTC is being given a great chance here, but there is a lot of risk involved as well.
I love the quality products HTC used to make (the HTC Evo 4G and HTC One M7 come to mind…), but they have lost their way since those devices. Both of which had a driven user interface that was gorgeous and unobtrusive. Since then, Sense has become tacky and trendy looking. Sense 5, my favorite iteration of the skin, was waysided for a more colorful and playful palette, which in my opinion, did the UI a massive downgrade in quality for me. That, coupled with HTC Sense’s undying cloth of fighting against material design’s UI cues, making it an inconsistent experience, all create a rather speedy, but obtuse offering. With the new version of Sense, they’re fixing this somewhat, but I think the Nexus devices built by HTC will allow the company to shine. Stock Android on a BoomSound clad (the Nexus 6 set the lived-in precedent of front facing stereo speakers) HTC device that has the best of the best in relation to build quality (this was set by Huawei’s 6P) and has the audio playback better than any in contention (set by the HTC 10). All that needs to be done is a switch to AMOLED technology from HTC, and we could be looking at the best all-around Android phones today.
Or they could screw it up and make it an A9 or 10 clone with stock Android and call it a day.
Honestly, these phone’s success is dependent on what Google tells HTC to implement from the Nexus lineup.Jason Adams – 2016-04-28 11:49:03-0400+Master Decker I don’t know what I did before the fingerprint readerEvan Wickes – 2016-04-28 11:52:31-0400HTC & Apple struck a deal awhile back. Depending on the agreement terms, HTC might be allowed to do this. I would be surprised but who knows.Going Off grid and Solar powered – 2016-04-28 12:10:35-0400well I love my a9. I will love my 10. I will love one of these devices (soon to be nexus from HTC) so I don’t mind the iphone look. I hate big phones. I love sound, I like front facing speakers but hate big phones. so we all have IMO, HTC is the best choice for all us. be happyBrad Graham – 2016-04-28 12:17:02-0400HTC should have done it on the 10T J – 2016-04-28 12:24:55-0400If patterns of the past are something to go by then HTC & Google will make a Nexus with a inferior screen against competition, battery life will take a hit, and build quality will go down also. And to add insult to injury, there is always the possibility of Google going with HTC to put the fingerprint sensor on the front. All in all, with these two, I suspect the device will rise to $550-$600 starting.Andrew Bernstein – 2016-04-28 13:44:30-0400If we get a iPhone clone Nexus I will loose my shit and destroy my 6P out of rageMatthew Ellenbogen – 2016-04-28 16:10:35-0400your doing alot of guessingCurtis D – 2016-04-28 16:13:07-0400Apple actually came to an agreement with htc, because the iPhone was too similar in design to the one series. So apple can’t touch HTC because they have the rights too itCurtis D – 2016-04-28 16:15:03-0400Also I’m pretty sure Google holds all the power in the design department, what they say goes. So I’m sure it won’t be a huge departure from the current nexusUn Lo – 2016-04-28 23:06:36-0400HTC forever lost me as a customer with the fiasco that was the Flyer. Great hardware. Horrible support and software updates that broke hardware components.
