    One thing you seem to be missing. Its the larger screens that those larger screens that in part make a larger overall size of a device that allows for the faster processor, more RAM, NFC, wireless charging and other goodies. Larger phones are here to stay you can either embrace that or deal with not having all of that stuff or a fat phone like the Lumia 920

    So you're saying it's necessary to make the phone bigger in order to put better specs in like faster processor, more RAM, etc.? That's not true. Plenty of electronics are small that pack the punch. There's no truth to that statement.

    If they price the next Nexus phone that high, they'll price themselves out. At $349 for the 16GB for an unlocked, no contract phone, that's as about as high as it should be. It's the perfect price point in my opinion. In fact, it should be 32GB for $349 and 16GB for $299 for the Nexus 5. The highest 2 year contract phone is $299 and they go down from there.
    You do understand that you pay full retail, $600-700, for your "$200-300" contract phone, over the life of your contract, right? That $300 "price" is an illusion. And an unlocked 64gb phone at $400 would be an awesome bargain.

    Actually I was talking goodies like nfc and wireless charging mainly but yes the SOC (system on a chip ) are getting bigger as well. There is also a difference in bring able to do something and bring able to do something large scale and at an affordable price. Its a fact that miniaturization costs more. You may not agree with me but please don't tell me what I am saying is false.

    I don't understand your point. You can get a Nexus 4 on-contract for $49. There's a difference between unlocked and on-contract. That same $299 on-contract phone is $699 unlocked. So Nexus phones are bargains; half the price.

    The phablet Nexus will be complementary to the main Nexus line.

    Someone used the example of the Note II (phablet) to the Galaxy S3 (main flagship).

    I don't see why Google can't sell 2 smartphones at the same time targeting two different markets: Main Flagship (4.7-4.8") and the Phablet Niche (5.5")

    Yeah but the Galaxy S4 was just priced at $249 on contract on AT&T. That's good competition to a Nexus priced at $349

    What? You can't compare the price of an on-contract phone to the price of an unlocked phone.
