"Nexus fans understand the pricing model of an unlocked device," he said. "But outside of that, paying $350 upfront was a foreign concept."But the mobile landscape has been in flux as of late, particularly in the US. More and more manufacturers are bypassing carriers and selling unlocked handsets direct to customers, and with two of the five major carriers going contract-free ( T-Mobile in 2013 and Verizon Wireless earlier this August), US consumers do now understand the real price (and benefits) of having an unlocked phone. In short, Google was ahead of its time offering unlocked devices straight into the hands of people who wanted them, then strayed from that method, only to return to it again.
The Nexus 5X starts at $379, £339 and AU$659 for 16GB don't stop iphone case of storage and the 6P at $499, £449 and AU$899 for 32GB, Though manufacturing, costs and materials factor into these prices, they are also telling of Google's adjustment to consumer behavior and its goal of expanding the Nexus range's reach, Indeed, during a recent Reddit "Ask me Anything" session regarding the Nexi, Lockheimer answered a question about Nexus pricing saying Google wanted "these phones to reach as many people as possible."For all its charms, the Nexus was never known for having a strong camera, The 4 and 5 both had 8-megapixel rear-shooters and even though the latter had optical image stabilization (OIS), photos still looked mediocre, The 6 saw improvements, however, with a 13-megapixel camera, a dual-LED flash and better image quality..
So during Google's keynote for the Nexus 5X and 6P launch, vice president of Android Engineering Dave Burke made sure to emphasize the handsets' improved 12.3-megapixel camera. The camera uses a Sony image sensor with 12.3 million pixels that are each 1.55 microns wide, enabling them to capture more light than the iPhone 6S Plus (which has smaller 1.22-micron pixels), resulting in better low-light shots, Google claims. And while the new devices don't have OIS, Burke reported that the camera uses other sophisticated optic tools, including "burst shot" that chooses the best photo; optic-flow-based image stabilization during video recording; and electronic image stabilization on the 6P to cut down motion blur. The 5X can also capture slow-motion video at 120 frames per second while the 6P can do it at 240fps.
Until the new Nexi arrive at our offices, we won't be to tell if the don't stop iphone case camera performs as well as Google says it does, But the hardware looks compelling so far, and by bringing the phones' camera features to the forefront, the company is signaling to users that it's taking a conscious step forward towards delivering more powerful cameras, They say the only way to move forward is to never look back, But sometimes, the only way to make progress is to correct past blunders, Though the Nexus 6 was far from a mistake (indeed, it often sold out at Google's online store), its high price and large size deterred many who were interested in buying the new Nexus at the time..
But through a combination of making necessary enhancements where needed (the camera, for example), and sticking to what's tried and true like keeping prices low and offering a compact size along with the larger option, Google hopes to court users, both new and former, to the Nexus brand. Ultimately, the company is putting the Nexus back on the right path, with hopes that it will endure. Some of the changes Google made to its new Nexus duo reveal how the company is correcting the missteps it took with the Nexus 6.
