    Google has been pretty consistent with releasing a new Nexus phone per year.

    Devices: Current: Nexus 5, Moto X, Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0); Retired: Galaxy S2 (Epic 4G Touch); Traded: Galaxy S3

    I presume a larger tablet is next. Just for golf's reason and a new one hasn't been released yet.

    I'd happily settle for an N5 on VZW. The current and near term options aren't looking good.

    Right now and onward is to improve on design and soft on current N7,N5 and soon N10 2013. They will continue come out with two new tablets and one phone year at least.

    They have now a nice and recognizable design for nexus line and more important a trademark design for Google. With the Nexus 5 now their software has a Google eccentric purpose. All this will naturally progressive for the better.


    Google has watch and the glass still to add to their Android ecosystem. This will probably shape most of android software updates to come.

    I like 4.4 launcher but I just wish Google would add the more useful widgets that sense and touchwiz have. Furthermore add some of the stapled features that are in every oem skinned android os but not in stock android.

    Regardless I happy with what Google has done and see an exciting future for the Nexus line especially for next year.

    I really like the point you bring up here - I just got my 1st Android device, "Nexus like" Moto X, what widgets do you find useful from the OEM skins and what apps would you advise to fill in the blanks so to speak for Nexus owners who don't have those "company widgets"?

    Well the "company widgets" I speak of are simply just on aesthetics mostly. The "company widgets" Google should have there version of are

    A full clock weather widget
    (Touchwiz,Sense,etc)

    Full seven day weather widget
    (Ditto)

    A full calendar widget that displays the whole month
    (Ditto)

    Calculator Widget
    (Ditto)

    Flash light Widget toggle/App
    (Sense,Touchwiz)

    Battery Percent Widget and in notification Bar)
    Touchwiz...and sure OEM skins have as well)

    A Feed Widget
    (Sense,Flipboard, Pulse, etc)
    Google Currents Widget doesn't cut it at all.

    A fullscreen music widget
    (Every OEM Skin has one)

    Quick Toggles in the notification bars)
    (Ditto)

    The apps I use or used in the past.

    Beautiful Widgets
    HD Widgets
    Android Weather App
    Calculator +
    Nexus Torch
    Battery Reborn Widget
    Power Widget

    The play store as fixed what has been missing in my Nexus but I just feel why is it missing to begin with.

    I have heard the reasons why Google doesn't have theses "company widgets" but I haven't heard illegitimate reason.

    What confuses me about Google is how they don't have the most obvious features and widgets that are in other Androids Devices. Then there is the Nexus 5 with Google Home Launcher. The Nexus 5 has such an overhaul on the look of stock android OS which seems to be design for the purpose of being more mainstream. If the purpose was to be more mainstream why not have the mainstream or "company" widgets and features that are standard on all android devices?

    But I digress....

    Looking forward to a new Nexus 10 2. Have the original Nexus 10 and with the upgrade to 4.4, it absolutely flies and is very smooth. Had the Nexus 7, but think a Nexus 8 with great specs and HD screen would hit the sweet spot.

    Looks like your call and a call for 8" have been answered. Sure, they are not Nexus but GPE is basically the same thing. Sony is pricey though... But no Nexus even comes closer in terms of build quality.

    Isn't kind of the purpose of Nexus though? To not have all of those pre-loaded things? I thought the main draw of the Nexus line was "hey, we're not going to overload you with bloaty crap that you may or not may not like, and won't be able to do anything with. Instead, here's a blank slate that you can do whatever you want with."

    I think your last point is a good one though - it does seem that with the 4.4 launcher that Google is heading in a more "consumer" direction with Nexus, so if that's the case, why didn't they go further? I don't know. I actually prefer not having much of those things you mention above. Maybe it's just because I've never owned a phone with those features, so haven't gotten used to having them.

    So, everything you can very easily get from the Play store or elsewhere should be stuffed into vanilla Android on the system level?! You many want all that crap, but most of us Nexus fans (and generally anyone else that wouldn't use it) would call that bloatware, and is anti-Nexus idealogy. If you want it, go get it. It's brilliantly simple, efficient, and takes just as little time as finding it in your 8GB bloated OEM skin. Now, some of the OEM features you can't easliy find elsewhere makes sense to complain about, but fortunately those are VERY few and far between.

Now, some of the OEM features you can't easliy find elsewhere makes sense to complain about, but fortunately those are VERY few and far between.

    So for a long time now, we've found ourselves asking the two questions again and again: what exactly is Google trying to accomplish with the Nexus program and what's the strategy with these Android updates? We sat down with three of the four main leaders of the Android team to ask those questions yet again. "Nexus stands for high specs at a really fair price," says Hiroshi Lockheimer, vice president of engineering for Android. "The other thing is the updates come directly from Google. Those are the attributes of Nexus that I think people have really enjoyed and we're not changing that strategy."

    "[T]urning the Nexus from the premiere Android phone into the Google phone, but it does change things for Google and for the rest of the Android ecosystem. KitKat is about "polishing," "refining," and providing a "long tail set of features," but it's also about honing and sharpening. The result is a new edge, Google's services, which reach their highest and best form on the Nexus 5"


    The "nexus ideology" does not exist in any set principal or rule by Google and never defines clearly what is bloatware or what is or makes a Nexus or stock android. So sure the "Nexus fans" have a lot of ideas on this supposed "nexus ideology" which all a farce or assumption since Google has never clearly define the term.

    If Google was to provide all the features I have mentioned then Google would deem them as part of their Google Service the same as the Google Now/Hangout/Cloud/Google Plus integrated on the Nexus 5/android. Which many "Nexus fans" base on this "nexus ideology" have consider bloatware and step away from Android is. However Google does not consider the Google Now, Hangout etc as going against the "nexus ideology" because Nexus and android is what Google makes it.


    The Nexus 5 is changing of guard that I made an observation with criticism. These vague definitions of "bloatware" and "nexus ideology" that are way more concrete and apparent to "Nexus Fans" then they are to "Google".

    Side note on the play store

    Finding third party widgets to find features to replace what OEM skins would have leaves you with a few dozen sets of widgets Then out of the plethora of widgets you pick a mere handful to actually. Now your left with a library of widgets you don't use.....sort seems like bloatware.
