    What do you think about the new google smartphone design? I think it follows the iPhone 7 style.

    So, I am trying to figure out what they were trying to accomplish with the glass patch around the camera and finger imprint sensor on the top 1/3 of the back? I appears to be for show, and has no functional purpose. Right?

    My guess is as good as yours, but I think it is probably just for looks. And honestly, I don't think it looks bad. Maybe on the silver one it doesn't look the best, but it looks pretty good on the black and the blue.

    Forget the nfc, antenna and signal strength they want to make us believe is improved. They just put it there because they're clueless. So, are they trying to say that they're not a thousand and one full metal phones out there who have the best reception without the glass?
    As if reception/nfc connection was ever a problem or as if the glass backed phones have had the best reception/nfc connection. Clueless and tasteless set of people tbh

    Welcome to the forums.

    I think the look is ok. Not unique like an M7/M8...but I don't hate it either.

    Yes looks just fine what I care more is the software experience and how it performs day to day. All phones look the same rectangular slab for me so it's fine.

    The glossy plastic back makes zero sense to me. Its like they finished it all in one tone, then realized it's an iPhone clone and added the back. There is no way I'd shell out 650$+ for a phone I'd be embarrassed to carry around all day.

    It's great, that Google Symbol in the back is soo awesome looking (in my opinion, even thought it's just a small symbol)
    It's fingerprint sensor location is good.

    I think it looks fine. The 1/2 glass back doesn't take anything away from the look and makes it distinctive.

    That black sensor in the top centre sort of ruins the look.

    I think so too. It was their attempt to differentiate themselves.

    I don't mind the look. It is different.... if it was all aluminum or glass... it would just look like any other big slab on the market. Change is good, although most people tend to not like that, I being one.... but it is growing on me.

    I'm just mad that they didn't do a blue phone with black glass, that would have looked WAY better IMO

    To be frank, yeah. It does kinda look like an iPhone. But there's almost no phone that hasn't adopted the look or some kind of design thingy of iPhone. Plus we all love how an iPhone looks. So all cool

    It is mainly for better/boost reception(cell network). It's similar to iPod touch antenna bands.
