Guess the Phone: A welcome return

by Brandon Russell | December 26, 2015

People have waited for this company to release a worthy flagship for years now, and we were finally shown a glimmer of hope. After months of rumors, the company’s next big device mostly lived up to the hype, bringing some terrific ideas to the table while sticking to a familiarity that put it on the map years ago. For die hard fans, it was a welcome return; for newbies, it was a nice entrant in the crowded Android market.

It was by no means perfect, but it was very encouraging, and a huge step up compared to what we’ve seen from this company over the past few years; it makes us think that there’s a bright future ahead. That said, it also means there’s more pressure on this company to deliver another innovative flagship; or, at least, one that people don’t just quickly dismiss. Its newest phone just couldn’t be ignored—we need more of that next year and beyond.
