You could have twice as much battery as someone else's configuration (sacrificing other components). You could choose not to have a camera to make room for external storage. The sky was the limit.
It just doesn't seem feasible :P

Certainly not for anyone smaller than Google, and certainly not without tons of partners, which they have put together. Ara could still fold, but I hope it doesn't. If Google can't do it...

I moved from my Nexus 6 to a Moto Z Play. Amazing battery life, more than double anything I've ever had before. Cool thing about my Nexus 6 was that I managed to sell it a year after buying for more than I paid. Ended up making a net profit between selling it and buying the Z Play.

I actually was trying very hard to get a Nexus 6 when it first came out, even tho the price is on the pricer end for a nexus lineup. I managed to get an order via Google play but end up cancelling it. I believe I went with the OnePlus One if my memory serves me right.

I hadn't really seen that idol pro 4s before. Indeed, I haven't seen many non-lumia Windows phones recently.

I snagged the Nexus 6 a year after its release during Amazon's fire sale. $260 for 64GB. One of the better deals I ever snagged. When the Nexus 4 had its fire sale a year after launch, the 16GB version was $250. So even though the N6 retailed a lot higher at launch, it finished its run with quite a bargain.

There's an underpowered Idol 4s running Android and the Windows version, which is pretty solid specwise (Snapdragon 821/4GB RAM/64GB storage/MicroSD slot). The lack of apps can be annoying for some but I have 90% of what I need on it. That Nexus 4 fire sale wasn't much of a sale i got an Nexus 4 about 6 months after launch for $200+tax.That phone lasted me over 2 years. Biggest problem Google has with the Pixel phones is most people who want one can't even buy one. You buy from Google you get on a wait list and then a few weeks later they start filling new orders and forget that you were on the waitlist. Go to your carrier (unless its big red) and they send you to Google. And its an expensive flagship phone.

I got the 8GB version for $200, in part because the markup to 16gb was absurd, and even 16GB didn't seem like it'd be enough anyway. It felt like an incredible deal at the time. I'd never seen anything quite like it. I was mostly shopping for AMOLED devices, but when Google cleared their N4s in anticipation of the N5, I abandoned that dream for a few years. Living on 8GB of storage sucked, but you're right it was a great phone.

I have Redmi Note 4. It is the coolest smartphone with amazing features. Also, the price is not too high.

Samsung Galaxy, but one of the prepaid versions. It does what I want it to do, talk, text, and web. It also was under $100 so if it cracks or gets damaged, while I might be annoyed, I would not feel so angry I am out $600+ on the fancy models.

I had an older flip phone but it could not send texts. That is why I had to upgrade when people got annoyed I was calling in response to their texts instead of texting back.
