Usually the devices are similar in specs but with LG not being the company to make the Nexus 6 (or whatever it will be called) it's a whole different ball game.

It's worth noting that (if I remember correctly) LG also said they weren't making the Nexus 5.

There's been so many rumours floating around about who isn't making the Nexus 6, or how there won't be one at all that I wouldn't rule anything out yet.

If you get a nexus there are usually things you have to deal with because the cheap price, whether its really bad speakers, bad earpiece, or bad reception and build quality issues, there's always a downfall to cutting corners. If you can deal with that then the Nexus is the way to go.

True. I bought the bright n5 like 3 months ago (I had the white one previously) and now the red one is having wifi issues!. Sometimes it would disconnect and reconnect, really slow! I can't wait to sell this phone and get the g3 then. I use the wifi a lot

I found out I was having wifi problems when I used my old white n5. At first I thought I was having issues with the router but it is the god damn phone that is having the problem. It was already too late to rma it. How do the buttons feel being on the back?

Imagine the Nexus 6 being a G3.....but with a FHD screen to cut costs......and no replaceable battery or external sd....so the battery could be the same as in the G2, a Li-Po battery instead of a Li-On

That would get great battery life!

I don't trust LiPo batteries. A short circuit could in the regulating chip can cause them to explode. I've always be weary of them because of this. Seeing one malfunction is cool to watch unless its unintentional. I know most laptops use them, but that's just me. A removable battery is better in my opinion. If there was a GPE of the G3 that would be better than a Nexus 6.
