Google already makes its own phones. It’s called Nexus. So what would taking the manufacturer partnership out of the equation actually help?
At least once a year or so we get rumors about Google “building its own smartphone.” That is, one not named Nexus, and presumably one without any sort of branding (and marketing support) from the usual manufacturing suspects.

The Nexus 6p is perfect for the next stage of technology.
Every year or two, we come up against the same question: Should I upgrade my smartphone to a new(ish) model? Assuming that your device isn’t suffering from physical damage, a depleted battery, or the ever-popular “It’s gotten so sloooow!” malady, the best reason to upgrade is for new features and functionality.
Many phones come to market with small, incremental improvements that don’t fundamentally change your [Read More…]
How do I improve battery life in the Nexus 5X?
While the 2,700mAh battery in LG’s Nexus 5X can get you through the day on a single charge, depending on usage, we think you can probably get a little bit more out of it by making a few simple changes.
