  • The OnePlus line would be absolutely fascinating. They’ve had such a bizarre history, it would be really fun to see a retrospective from you. I actually bought a OnePlus One based on your review! It was a toss up between it and the Nexus 5, and to this day I still feel the One was the better choice at the time.

    • @MzzzzCateArcher I was hesitant with the first two generations but there have been so good deals on the fold 3 lately plus the one plus 7pro being almost 3 years old now,it's time for an upgrade and I want something that's more different than just the jump from the 7 pro to the 9 so decided on the fold

  • Absolutely would love to see a Galaxy S video! Especially the weirdness with the S1 and S2 and how carriers in the US still required "unique" phones with different styles and names. The Galaxy S3 was the first really HUGE Android phone that was unified in name and branding and design, something that truly stood up to iPhone.

    • My guess would be app support. Had a Nokia 920 for a year and was absolutely blow away at how good the camera was and how good it performed in general. But what made me switch to android was the lack of apps I wanted/needed to use.

    • The simplest explanation for why the OS didn’t take off was poor app support, but I’d assume there was secondary issues I’m not too educated on

    • Same. There was such a variety of hardware at the beginning - constrained by Microsoft's requirements but trying to think outside the box anyway. I feel like the later phones never really got highlighted in the way the peak Nokia devices did, so it would be interesting to look at them as the conclusion of that line.

  • I always considered the Moto X to be a "google phone." It felt like an early attempt to make what the pixel is today. A phone that runs google's version of skinned stock android. It felt different than what Samsung did with its skins. My wife's Samsung phones with Touchwiz always seemed to have unnessisary changes vs stock android that didn't improve functionality and often felt unintuitive when I had to help her with her phone.

    • I considered the 5th generation moto x, disgustingly named the "2015 moto x pure/style edition", to be a refinement of the nexus 6. Owning that phone was truly amazing, until about a year and a half later when I realized that Motorola had no intentions of updating the software like google did. Regardless, the specs were even better than the nexus 6 and the software was still clean as a whistle like the nexus phone.

    • Agreed! I think a big reason for this is that Motorola was owned by Google during the Moto x era. A lot of what current phones use as standard were present in the Moto x. The "okay Google" and always on display were pioneered by Motorola with the Moto x and Google has incorporated it into all their stuff after that.

      Sassquatch571Sassquatch571أشهر قبل
    • Yeah, I also consider the first two Moto X and G phones to be Google phones. The second gen X and G were the first non-Nexus devices to ship the Google Now Launcher, which arrived in an OTA update.

  • I would love to hear your thoughts on the Palm Pre phone, Palm brand, and their Web OS software. The Palm Pre was suppose to be the iPhone killer. Their Web OS was actually brilliant but lacked any apps or App Store. I had this phone right before my first iPhone. It was the closet thing to an iPhone I was able to achieve at the time. Still a great phone. Pebble/organic design, compact, had a mirror on the back for selfies after you slid the screen up. It was shown in the TV show Heros as “the it phone”. Let’s not forget their CREEPY commercial though. Watch that with the lights on. It def had major flaws too. Sharp edge by the keyboard that would slice any finger, tiny tiny buttons, small screen (I didn’t mind then), and no store or processing power. Anyways, thank you for your consideration and for the time to read this if you did. I hope I will see a vid on this phone from you in the future.

  • I remember really wanted the 5X back in the day, but I was living in a different country where Google phones were generally hard to come by. Then I moved and got the 3a. Let's just say it was an essential phone, really happy with it. Then I got the Pixel 6, largely due to the sheer value of the phone. Kinda wish it's not as big as it is, but still very much happy with it. I like where Google is heading, expecting great things in the future.

  • Nostalgic to see all of these and enjoyed the video. I loved my Nexus 4 and really wanted to get the Nexus 6P but shied away because of its price. Now, I often really come close to buy a Pixel phone but never really ended up buying them. I think it was hugely because of the influence of Oneplus phones. I even tried an iPhones for 3 years. At the this point, I am content with a good value-for-money phones. I really have absolutely no issues with my 12GB RAM version of Oneplus Nord and a decent Samsung A series phone. I'd love to get the budget version of Pixel 6 to experience the Tensor chip. On the other hand, I had to move to Mac because of its M1 chip though I am a Windows user all my life. I already have an iPad because Apple make the best tablets. So, where does it take me now? Should I buy an iPhone, finally become the 'lamb' and bow towards the Apple ecosystem eventually? And, that's why I have high hopes for Google's Tensor chips for the future and a healthy competition.

  • I've owned most of these swapping to the galaxy series in between and I have to say the nexus phones were some of my favorites. Even though it's hilariously big the Nexus 6 has been my most overall loved phone I've ever had. 4XL was also far more useful than people think. Now that I have the Pixel 6 I have to say I'm probably not switching out anytime soon.

  • Having upgraded from a basic LG smartphone at the time to the Galaxy Nexus, I definitely fell in love with the pure, barebones android experience. I've had to settle on other, non-nexus non-pixel phones from time to time over the years depending on availability with my carrier (currently using a samsung S20 5G since my pixel 2 broke down and there were NO pixels available at the time). Honestly when my contract is over with this phone I'm really itching to go back to a pixel phone since I've always had extremely good experiences with google flagship phones. Hopefully by then the 6A is out and I can upgrade to that. Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 5, Pixel 2... All amazing phones and had I had my pick I'd have upgraded to another pixel phone right away.

  • I love this video. It's like we're going down the timeline, checking out how Google Phones came to be. They definitely went thru ALOT of companies before they decided to make their own stuff 😂 I too remember the Nexus but I was young so I couldn't afford one. I still was excited at Google's development because every feature they made shifted how other phone companies changed their features and hardware. Galaxy S5 was my main drive once I was able to have a good stack of batteries and I waited to see if things would change for my next phone. My first Google phone and my first "bought for myself phone" was a Pixel 3a. I was so conflicted with buying the 3a XL but I already had a Galaxy S8 in my pocket, so made sense to get the smaller one so I don't look like I got bulgy pockets. I rocked that phone for a while. Loved the Google Assistant that screened phone calls for me. K.O.ed a lot of scam callers And now, I was comparing the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. I decided to go with the Pixel 5a since it was on sale from Google Store, and will wait for a good deal to come from my phone carrier 🤣

The desires we had were really well built, and HTC's whole UI experience was by far better than the competition at the time. It was definitely the first "premium" feeling phone i'd ever seen up until that point. (also, I think is the desire s but I'm not sure. It had really, really nice machining on the front facing camera and speaker grill, and it ran the android version where you could pull a ring up from the bottom to unlock

  • Tu vídeo esta genial! Felicidades, personalmente he tenido el gusto más por las versiones de Android Stock y no las versiones modificadas como htc, LG y Samsung, etc. OnePlus pudo ser una opción con aosp pero ya he tenido Motorola con aosp y no fue una buena experiencia por la mala optimización del kernel. En México lamentablemente no se encuentra de manera oficial, solo con otros vendedores que algunas veces es más caro, quizá entre 300 USD más caro de lo que se vende en la web oficial. Ojalá que en algún momento podamos recibirlo de manera oficial y legal. Quien lo tenga, recomienda el Google pixel 6? O el 5a? Cuál es mejor?

  • I loved my Galaxy Nexus. My first smart phone was the Samsung Captivate which I think was technically the S1. I used to upload custom rims and kernels myself. The coolest Android phone I probably every had was the Motorola Atrix with the laptop dock. I just switched to an iPhone from the Note 10+ and that’s because all the reasons I went with an Android aren’t real big anymore. I don’t overclock or sideload Roms anymore, not to mention expandable memory and headphone jacks are in the way out. Plus my family all have iPhones so now I can FaceTime my parents to talk to my kids. Androids will always hold a place in my tech heart. Lol.

  • I had the Nexus 5X which remains to be my most favorite phone I've had so far (bought it with discount tho). The camera was awesome and it was very comfortable to hold thanks to the low weight. Unfortunately, the motherboard died exactly two years after I purchased it, so just out of warranty. Since then, I've been rocking a Samsung A8 for nearly four years, and although a decent phone, it doesn't have the charm nor the camera the Nexus had.

The photos are amazing, and I'm still nominated to take photos in a group setting because they know I have a pixel. I now have a Pixel 4a, because I needed a phone quickly after the battery just bottomed out, and I know I'm going to be upgrading to the 6, I just love the phone, but the 4a is far too small compared to the 2XL and the 6 is much better suited for a person like me with reading glasses!

  • I for one would be very interested in a deep dive into Sony’s line of flagships over time. I remember how well received the Xperia Z3 was at the time and how they slowly started doing worse and worse after that. Also how their naming scheme completely went off the rails 😂 If not that, HTC would also be very interesting, cause they genuinely tried for a while, but we all remember the U Ultra 😂

I have only owned four smartphones: the HTC, Galaxy S4, S7 and my current 3 year old S9. I am very tempted by the Pixel 6 Pro at the moment. I have looked at the Xperia 5 III, Galaxy S21, Galaxy Z flip 3 and even iPhone 13 but I keep being drawn back to the Pixel Pro 6. I take lots of photos and very few videos, like to download audio books and music for playback through Bluetooth headphones, make may calls and spend too much down time on AR-too. Thoughts Marcus?

I have to say that I haven't felt so excited about a phone ever since. Now there all just about the same.. (not talking about flips and folds) with minor alterations.. I was hoping to get the pixel 6pro this year but in Greece the prices are ridiculously high! It's coming at about 1,200€ .

I've dropped mine a few times without a dent, but obviously that's just luck and YMMV. Battery life is among the best I've experienced in a smartphone, easily lasts me through an average day. Only real complaint is that the fingerprint scanner is cranky as hell and outright refuses to work at times

  • So, the way I was told about Google phones and their working in general. There was a team who were dedicated on creating this so called pure google experience phone and this team were given full liberty to explore and create however they want to. This team created the Nexus 6P the P here stood for Pixel and was a sign that the next phone will be pure google and a shift from the Nexus branding. The Nexus 6P again was created with a very interesting look and feel which I will get back to in a bit. As we all know the Nexus 6P was the best Nexus phone we saw and had the android fans go crazy. Now this team already had everything ready for the final and First ever Google Phone, the Google Pixel! Everyone was super hyped and the specs were the best and overall made the android fans stay more loyal. Now due to some internal issues and politics this team were sent at the back to do more research and as Marques correctly pointed out there were told to make a Google based chip and phone and OS and a lot more, so due to which you can see a steady downfall in the kind of quality and phones we got post the Google Pixel. Soon yet and purely coincidentally the 6th version was assigned to this team once again and if you look very closely they chose the best way to comeback, just like how there was a story for the name Google Nexus 6P (where P was a start for Pixels) they thought to themselves what better way then to tell the world they are back and have tons of things in handy they took the same design from the Nexus 6P, changed it a bit and retained the camera bar and Boom! Came the Pixel 6 with the Google Chip. If things go just as this team has planned, then we are in a treat next year, the amount of ideas these guys have been working on is insanely crazy and wild and guaranteed to get those loyal android and google fans back on their toes! Fun fact the rumoured Google Watch is also designed and made by this same team, so you can imagine the extent to which these guys are willing to go!!!

It had everything you could possibly want in a phone at the time. Dual front facing stereo speakers, two selfie cameras, regular and ultra wide, a single perfect main camera, and probably the best thing about it, it was the last phone to have a standard bezel. No notch, no hole punch, just a normal damn screen.

    • I agree. They need to bring back the dual front facing speakers. I don't mind the chin and forehead bar. Edge to edge screen with the dumb camera cutout is stupid. The bar makes it easier to hold the phone in landscape for gaming.

  • My first android phone was a Nexus S, which was the Samsung Galaxy S1 with Google/Nexus Philosophy built-in. It was nice how far android has come since then. Currently rocking Note 20 Ultra atm.
