    I would take the LG because I just can't get past that Chinese mass produced products are usually poorly made. Also... not being paranoid but.... how many times have the Chinese hacked US government and corporate computers. I definitely would be concerned about a Chinese made smartphone.
    Have you had the Ascend Mate7? It's one of the best phones I've had. The fingerprint scanner on it blows every other scanner out of the water. The Huawei Nexus will be built very, very well. I also find your statement funny because you have a Nexus 6, and that's made in.....

    I love LG and I really liked the 2013 Nexus 5.

    However, I would pick the 5.7-inch Huawei Nexus. That's because I like the larger screen size and there are bound to be some upgrades too like a larger battery (offset by the QHD display, but I prefer it mainly due to its larger size). I have large hands too, so as long as its bezels are similar to LG's, I should have no issue using it one-handed.

    However, I think others might prefer the LG Nexus instead, mainly due to its smaller size, which is a much better fit for folks with smaller hands. You can't go wrong with either. They're gonna be awesome, whichever one you pick.

    The bezels on the Ascend Mate7 were fairly small. The site i'm linking allows you to compare phone sizes next to, and layered one on top of the other. I did the Nexus 6 and Ascend Mate 7 and they both are about the same size.

    Did the comparison.

    Shouldn't be an issue for me.

    That's what I do love about Huawei. They don't go with the crowd on QHD. Plus they pack huge batteries in their phones, so battery life is awesome. Most likely since the Nexus phablet is 5.7", Google will go to Samsung and use the Note 4's QHD screens. It's up to the software to optimize how the screen looks. Like I've said in other threads, I just hope Google doesn't skimp on the battery or the speaker(s) with the Huawei Nexus. They overplayed their hand in pricing the 6 the way they did, with the problems it had early on.

    If they price the new LG Nexus at let's say $349.99 and $399.99 respectively for each storage variant, I expect a $100.00 increase for the Huawei phablet-- and I may be $100.00 off on the prices as it is, especially with M coming with more features.

    TL,DR, Google needs to actually justify the prices of the new Nexuses, and be sure that M's features warrant paying said amounts.

    If Google ask for it or requires it.... It will be on the device.... When it comes to Nexus devices Google usually looks at a flagship device and then makes their own fine touches on what they require.... I'd be 99.99999% certain it will be qHD..... and Samsung isn't the only smartphone LCD maker... Every year people claim other MFG's are using left over year old Samsung tech for screens..... although it's usually the Samsung fan boys beating that drum as to why the latest Note or Galaxy phone is better........

    They use FHD IPS displays. Google surely will want to use QHD AMOLED.

    Going with Moto Nexus 6. Being on Verizon I can't sit and wait on the next big thing when the N6 looks perfectly capable to me.

    I will read the reviews. The Nexus 5 and current Nexus 6 are said to be doing very well now with 5.1.1. Their current prices are attractive too. I'd have to see what the new offerings had to make them superior.

    After using the Nexus 6, no way am I ever going back to a 5 inch phone. Even 5.5 is too small now. Even the Note 4 seems normal now, so its 6+ inches for me from here on out.

    I'm the opposite - I am considering going back to a 5 inch phone someday. But I'll probably skip this generation and keep the Nexus 6 because it's awesome!

    I actually bounce back and forth between my N6 and N5. Sometimes it feels really nice to hold an N5 and not feel like there is something so massive in my hands.

    But the N6 supports band 12(I think it is band 12, whatever the lower freq T-Mobile band is...) Has a better camera, and battery, and is great for its sheer screen size when reading webpages, watching video, etc.

    Man band 12 has been a blessing and curse ever since it went live on the Nexus 6 and T-Mobile here in Dallas... The only place it's made a real difference for me is at work... My work is in a weird zone where I barely got HSPA or 3G.... Now I get band 12 but it's pretty weak... it's ten times better than before it was activated.... so that is a positive... but in other areas where I had a "Decent" LTE signal it now picks up band 12 and my overall speeds are SLOWER by a considerable margin.... Mostly fast enough but I went from getting 30, 40 or 50 Mbps downloads to now somewhere in the 5 - 15 Mbps speed area.... The DFW area just seems to be heavily saturated in Band 12.... So I basically get LTE in a few more places but overall it's a slower LTE speed in most all areas I live/work/play......

    Anyway.... It's a mild rant on my part.. Overall I LOVE my Nexus 6.... It's been an amazing device overall.....

    I actually just got an 2013 Nexus 5 as a toy and even got it rooted. I think I would want a larger screen and the current Nexus 6 would be nice. It'll be interesting to see what this year actually brings.

    Definitely buying the Huawei nexus. I've gotten quite attached to the large size of the 6. I have to be honest though. If the new Huawei doesn't support fast charging I'm not taking the bait. The nexus 6 if the first device I've owned that supports this feature and after getting used to it. I just don't want to go back to the eternal charging time thing. Just seems so archaic, the thought of waiting forever again. What do you guys think?

    I have to say, everytime I handle the Nexus 6, I keep wondering what more I need in terms of a device. The screen is just fine, and I absolutely love those speakers on the front and how loud they get. I've done fine so far without a fingerprint scanner, and although Huawei gets good and loud HiFi sound from their single speakers, would it be as immersive as dual stereo?

    The only way I'd truly get the Huawei Nexus is if the battery is 3,500 mAh and up, and has the SD 820 in it. Even then, how much of a difference would 280 mAh make? Preferably, it would be a huge battery, which Huawei is known for using in their phablets, but I don't know if Google would sign off on it, because of extra cost. But a 4,000 mAh battery would make it a no brainer buy for me. Otherwise, the Moto Nexus 6 is more than good enough, especially when the price will no doubt drop further before the new phones are released.

    I think the nexus 6 is a good option simply because it's actually a very ergonomic 6 inch phone I can use most of the phone with one hand

    Love my N6. I ordered a Dbrand carbonfiber back skin. I have a Spigen case on it now but I would like to try it with just the skin on it to reduce the bulk a little. It's the best phone I've had, including my Iphone 6 which I sold. Battery lasts me all day plus.

    I love my Nexus 6, but the size is a bit troublesome at times. That and the volume down key is right under my car mount bracket.

    I'm generally more comfortable with 5.2 to 5.5 inch devices. I'd be willing to try a 5.7 so long as it's AMOLED, has front firing speakers, and Qi charging. Those three items are now a 100% requirement for me, I've decided I can't live without them.
