    Motorola would be my number one pick. My d1 took a beatin' under my ownership an worked like a champ everyday.

    Though it be interesting to see a Sony Nexus...

    big screen in pocket = i like the curved screen. so unless someone else makes a big phone like that, i say stick with samsung. cause i'd like something closer to 5in in my nexus shape



    my d1 did work well, but from my friends having x's and stuff. the d1 was pretty much the only good phone they made. even though the maxx battery is a good idea... anything with the moto silly bump is for someone else besides me


    i'd check out sony for sure thou... i liked what little i've played with their old android phone but it was gsm only.

    Those two would actually be quite interesting to see. Especially Asus as I already love their tablets. Sony I'm not too sure about, but it'd be interesting to see and would probably look really great. They just have done too much with phones yet that have made a big enough "bang".

    I don't understand why everyone hates on Motorola. Of all the phones I've ever had, moto has by far the best record of solid hardware.
    That said, I bought my wife an Asus Transformer (not the prime, don't always trust first releases) for Christmas and it might be the best electronic device I've owned. So solid, and the interface is just perfect. I'd love to see Asus get a crack.

    If the next Nexus is Samsung, HTC, etc, I'll look at it as "just another phone." If it's moto or Asus, I'll go out of my way to get one.

    Personally as far as I am concerned I am buying a Nexus, not whatever the manufacturer is. If they (Google) holds true to their standards then whoever makes it will produce a great device. I own the G-Nex and I have never once referred to it as my Samsung, to me it is a Nexus, end of story.

    Yea, there really is nothing Samsung about it. I think of it as the "solid and beautiful Nexus"!

    Haha, very true! If it meets Google's standards, it's going to be a great phone no matter what. Some companies will work on certain things better than others though I believe.

    Personally I think it would be kind of cool to have all the main companies all make prototype Nexus, see which is be best, and go from there. It won't happen of course.. but I think it'd be pretty awesome and a good idea.
