    Post Who in their right mind would buy this phone?

    Sounds like OP is trolling, but I'll take a swing at an answer. Like many of you I also ordered a UK version for use in the US. Quite honestly, I wasn't even really looking to upgrade from my current phone (Nexus 6 original), but with the Pixel announcement I started looking at the new stuff...

    Well, it's not actually getting made, it's not a real product - it's just a concept idea. I'm pretty sure that there is only one company around that could make it - if you're curious who that is, just "something it."

    Post Sprint not getting nexus 4!! How mad are you?

    Whoa there! Hold up a minute. Google didnt say anything about Sprint not getting the Nexus 4. What they said is first they concentrate on producing phones for open standards and the carriers that use them (more or less). Since Sprint uses cdma instead of gsm, they just arent in the first batch...
