Huawei was the manufacturer of choice for Google's 2015 flagship Nexus 6P, but LG was also on board with the Nexus 5X, a reworked version of the 2014 Nexus 5. It is clear that Google and LG have had a good relationship through the years as this is now the third Nexus device the Korean company has built. Google executive David Burke has now confirmed that indeed the Android giant does prefer working with Korean company LG."Our engineers really like to work with the people at LG Electronics. Together they have become an excellent team," Burke said. Does that mean that LG and Google will be partners again or is Burke merely praising what was a good partner for the company. LG sat out a year of Nexus products as Motorola built the 2015 Nexus 6, while tablet duties have been handled by ASUS and HTC.
"LG Electronics is the best partner for us in engineering the Nexus smartphones. We share the same approach to the mobile device market with LG Electronics. Our engineers really like to work with the people at LG Electronics. Together they have become an excellent team" -David Burke, VP Android engineering, Google
