    Finish the sentence in the Subject and specify which model you are referring to.

    I won't buy the Nexus 5 2015 if it starts at $499 or above.

    So it can be the best phone of the year, but if it costs less than the normal price of a flagship, that's a deal breaker?

    Assuming all the rumors are correct, I have no reason not to buy one.

    I won't buy the LG Nexus if:
    1. it starts at $399 for 16GB
    2. it doesn't have a metal frame (I'll look at the Huawei instead)
    3. the battery is smaller than 2800 mAh

    I won't buy the Huawei Nexus if:
    1. it starts at anything over $499 for 16GB
    2. the battery is smaller than 3200 mAh

    I may be willing to work with some of these, but for the most part I think I'm easy to please. Google still needs to put forth their best effort.

    Why do people want Huawei and LG to cut their own throat on phone prices? If you want world class specs why wouldn't you be willing to pay for them? Google subsidized the Nexus 4 and 5 and Moto is subsidizing the Moto X lineup. Those prices aren't/weren't normal. We need to keep in mind that we want OEM's to keep pushing the envelope, not cut every corner possible to make a cheap device. There are PLENTY of crappy knockoff devices that you can buy for extremely cheap - and they come with all the associated tradeoffs. Personally I want LG & Huawei to kick out the best device they can and charge customers a reasonable price for it - one that makes it attractive against other flagships and still makes them a buck so that they have a reason to sell/support it.

    Since I pay the same monthly premium on my unlimited data plan, regardless of on contract or not, personally I see no reason to pay more for off contract. Of course everyone's situation is different. Just speaking for myself.

    Well considering other manufacturers are doing it at less than my price point ($499 for 16gb version) I don't think it's too much to ask for a nice phone for under $500. Look at the idol 3, zenfone 2, moto x etc... Yes they aren't THE best but they are great phones and cost less than my entry point.

    I get your point, I'm just not interested in a mid-range spec'd Nexus just to hit a price point. Now, I think that you are pretty close on what the price will be, somewhere in the $400-500 range - I'm just of the opinion that if they rock the specs and make a device that's truly better than the competition, asking for the same price as or more than the competition is justified. Price really isn't a point of contention for me; the quality of the device is what it is all about.

    I will not buy the Nexus 2015 (either version) if they have an SD Card slot.
    I will not buy the Nexus 2015 (either version) if the camera is totally garbage.
    I will not buy the Nexus 2015 (either version) if the battery won't EASILY last all day.
    I will not buy the Nexus 2015 (either version) if the build quality sucks or it is ugly as hell.
    I will not buy the Nexus 2015 (either version) if the performance doesn't exceed the Nexus 6.

    I think I should clarify my comments. My price point is based on the leaks I've heard about the new Nexus 5. I would be first in line to spend top $ on a premium Nexus with top of the line everything and I would love if they went this route. The leaked specs look decent but I don't think they are top of the line so I'd be disappointed if it was above $500 to start. The sad thing is I don't really even know which specs I'm not happy with haha. It just seems they are going middle of the road again.

    I can't speak for everyone, but I don't want world class specs. I'm not interested in a QHD display or a 20 megapixel camera. Not for a Nexus phone. The only spec I want to see that's "world class" is the battery.

    I won't buy the Nexus 2015 if SOT on average is 2 1/2 hours or less (like my Nexus 5). Heck, it needs to be at least 3 1/2 hours like the Nexus 6. Though, 4 hours would be ideal.

    I won't buy the Nexus 2015 if it's priced like other high-end flagships. Sorry, but the big part of the Nexus appeal for me were the the relatively low prices (see Nexus 4 & 5). Oh, and there is a Nextbit phone named Robin that has nearly identical specs and it's priced at $399. So yeah, I expect $349 for 16 GB and $ 399 for 32 GB.

    totally agree, but then again, I'm 36 and financially stable. if I was in college taking bong hits I'd probably feel differently

    but yeah, I'm not asking or expecting a hand out. you get what you pay for, and for what I'm asking of Google, I expect it to be priced slightly higher than the Moto Pure, maybe a touch higher.

    don't underestimate Fi though. it's in Google's best interest to get these in as many hands as possible, and even though they might take a hit up front, they'll recoup it on the back end.

    I won't buy the LG Nexus 2015 if it has a worse camera as well as worse battery life compared to my Moto X Play. I'm already expecting the latter but could be willing to forgive that providing the camera thoroughly destroys the Moto X Play in both low light and well lit conditions.

    @assasin droid - don't you mean you won't buy one if it lacks an SD card slot? Otherwise you're the first person I've ever come across to boycott a device because it has that functionality. If that is indeed the case, may I ask why?

    I won't buy the LG version if: M battery optimization didn't live up to the hype AND
    it has less than 3000 mAh

    I won't buy the Hauwei version if: same as above, but with 3500 mAh

    point is, if battery optimization finally becomes a reality, mAh isn't as important. sometimes there's no replacement for raw power, and of M doesn't have the optimization that it's promising, a larger battery will be needed

    USB-C 2.0 and only 32 GB would also be disappointing, but not necessarily a deal breaker. same with front speakers and quick charge. I expect both, but if they pull the rug out, I'd be disappointed.

    What's the benefit of USB-C 3.0 vs. USB-C 2.0?

    Are you transferring data via usb often from your smartphone or is their another benefit I'm not aware of?

    great question. speed and efficiency. I just started learning about USB-C, so maybe I'm missing something, but I googled USB-C 2.0 vs 3.0 (3.1) and quickly realized the significant difference.

    Ohhh... tough question! On the one hand there's the 808 for much smoother UI animations (a major annoyance on my Moto X Play), stereo speakers instead of mono, slightly faster OS updates and a fingerprint scanner. On the other there's larger bezels, no SD card support and (potentially much) shorter battery life.

    USB Type-C is simultaneously both a pro (reversible, faster if it's 3.0) and a con (renders my large micro USB cable collection redundant).

    I won't boycott a device for solely that reason, but it is a detraction for me to include in. My NVIDIA Shield Tablet has the slot, don't use it, don't like it - wish it wasn't there. My next phone Moto Pure will have it, not going to use it, don't like it, etc. There is an opportunity cost that I don't appreciate to having it there. Of course, I get that many people love that feature and want it and that's cool. I'm just not one of them.

    Thanks. This stuff can get confusing. Will this allow for faster charging if it's 3.0?
