Apple vs Google: Naming of flagship Android vs iPhone
- iPhone 3G -> iPhone 3GS
- iPhone 4 -> iPhone 4S
- iPhone 5 -> iPhone 5S
- iPhone 6 -> iPhone 6S (and plus sizes)
- iPhone 7 (and plus sizes)
- Nexus One
- Nexus S
- Galaxy Nexus
- Nexus 4
- Nexus 5
- Nexus 6
- Nexus 5X & Nexus 6P
- Pixel & Pixel XL
While iPhone is recognized as a global name while erstwhile Nexus and now, Pixel has almost no branding outside of the Android fanboys.
Further on Google’s naming snafu:
- Nexus 7, Nexus 10, and Nexus 9 are tablets. 7 & 10 were launched with 4 and 9 was launched later.
- Pixel brand was originally used for Chromebook Pixel.
- Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P were new versions of Nexus 5 and Nexus 6, respectively. It seems like the two teams couldn’t agree on a single suffix letter.
