Nexus-5X-01When building Nexus phones, Google does not manufacture the handsets themselves. Instead they turn to their various partners in the Android industry who will then typically bid for the right to make Nexus devices for the year. So far we have seen Nexus handsets from the likes of HTC, Samsung, LG, Motorola, and Huawei.


However it would seem that out of all the handset manufacturers, Google seems to think that LG has done the best job. This is according to Google’s Android Engineer VP Dave Burke, who recently during a video press conference claimed that LG is the best partner for engineering the Nexus smartphone. We’re not sure how Google’s previous OEMs feel about that!

Burke goes on to add that this is because LG “shares the same approach to the mobile device market” as Google, and also mentioned that their engineers have enjoyed working with the team over at LG. To date, LG has made three Nexus handsets – the Nexus 4, Nexus 5, and the Nexus 5X.

The only other company that comes close to making as many Nexus handsets would be Samsung, who was responsible for the Nexus S as well as the Galaxy Nexus, although they did contribute to other Nexus products like the Nexus 10 tablet.
