Just read an article that claims the Nexus line will still exist, even with Nexus phones. You can check the article on Android Central: http://www.androidcentral.com/nexus-device-program-isnt-going-away Good news! Now I can wait for the Nexus 6 and hope it improves battery life and has no big issues. I guess it will come out with the release of Android L. Snapdragon 805 also could be guaranteed! Snapdragon 805 + say 2600 battery + Android's L new battery optimizations could bring good battery life.
