Let's say that the rumors (and evidence?)of a Nexus program are true, and Motorola, Samsung, LG, and HTC are all making Nexus phones for release before the end of the year. For the sake of our poll, let's just pretend that they are all powered by the same CPU, GPU, and RAM, and had roughly the same screen size and resolution. Let's also say that there are no custom UIs used. As a result, updates are handled by Google directly, meaning they can be rolled out across all of the devices at roughly the same time.
Why all the stipulations? Because I want to know which manufacturer, not which hardware, you'd prefer. Answer via the poll below, then share why you made your choice in the comments. I'll be eagerly watching.
