    The Nexus 6P was the first glimpse the major US audience had of the international Juggernaut Huawei. The initial collaboration was a very successful venture for Huawei which has made the company a household name in the very niche market of Android super fans. The collab was so successful that Google was considering Huawei for the Pixel and Pixel XL. Huawei ultimately turned down the opportunity after discovering that Google would only be including their own branding on the Pixel. The Nexus 6P had the benefit of including the Huawei branding.

    If you were not in the know then you would not know that HTC is the manufacturer of the Pixel devices. This is not what Huawei wanted. They are trying to increase their reputation in the US and this might have been a waste of time in their mind. The relationship between Google and Huawei is not tainted though, and they appear to be working on a device with Google for release in 2017. Do you think Huawei miss out on a grand opportunity.

    If Huawei would of made the Pixel, I think it would of been a better design then what HTC created.

    Everyone is spying on everyone, it's not a secret anymore.

    Back to the subject at hand, I would have liked a Huawei pixel much more than HTC. HTC is just dead and boring in the design and aesthetics department.

    Agreed and the Grammar Nazi in me enjoys your proper usage of the phrase "would have."

    I'm just bustin' your chops. <grin>

    Don't admit to driving and texting on this website. There's a lot of folks here that think that's more dangerous than skydiving without a parachute and should be a capital offense.

    Google designed the phone, not HTC.
    Think of HTC as a glorified 3D printer.

    Nope I read it or seen a video that said the Google came to HTC about making an Google phone. HTC gave them the design that they had for an future HTC phone that got dropped. When I find the article or video I will post it.
