Agreed, man.

Actually they had the M9 but it got discontinued in less than a month due to poor sales. I wouldn't bother. Buy the M8 to hold you off until next year's HTC to see if it's any better.

Nexus 5X is good too but I have the 6P and absolutely love it. It's such a great package overall. Can't go wrong with it. Koodo needs these, considering they've had both the 4 and 5 before and they always sold well.

Same with the G4. Fido has a good price on it with their Smart Tab plans yet it outclasses most of the devices Koodo offers in the mid tier range. They should work on getting it.

I'd also like to see the Priv and Note 5. Not a single Blackberry in sight and they carried the Note 4 at launch, so I don't know why they're dropping the ball with the 5.

The G4 isn't selling well at all and infact LG has dropped the price of it twice since launch with the first being the second week of its release, while its a decent device I don't think Koodo would be wise to add it to the lineup personally.

That's why it's a good price on Fido. They did the same thing with the G3 - waited a little bit later and gave it a second life as a mid range handset. It wouldn't hurt to have some variety. The camera alone is a huge selling point - it rivals the S6 and even has an arguably better manual mode.

Hopefully Koodo picks it up the G4 once the price is more attractive. As for the Nexus devices I 110% agree. The Nexus 5 was a good seller and was a really good device, and it kind of surprised me that the 5X didn't come out, the 6P I can understand the pricing challenge a bit. The Priv....I would love to see it, but I would guess you wont see it until the price drops....a lot. I just bought myself a new phone, and wound up getting a Note 5 to use, and was torn between the Priv and the Note. And as much as I really liked the Priv, youd have a very tough time convincing me its worth more money than my Note. While the reviews said its the best blackberry ever, they also usually said its a good android phone, but not amazing compared to the other options out.

If you dont like Samsung then go elsewhere, that's basically the mentality of koodo it seems now days which is sad with so many great devices from other manufacturers. I'd really love to see the Nexus 6P come to Koodo more than anything as its the closest we've seen to the perfect device ever. The Nexus 5x isn't worth getting from everything Ive seen and the ppl I've talked to they all say pay the extra and give the larger 6P a chance and the larger form factor will grow on you. The BlackBerry Priv is also a great device with its only major downfall being the 2mp front facing camera which is laughable and inexcusable in 2015 especially since it's aimed at business users who do their fair share of video calls while out and about.
Koodo needs to do something about the device lineup quick because ppl will 90% of the time go where the device they want is and Koodo doesnt have much anyone wants

I think the 5X does better if purchased unlocked directly from Google, or at least in the U.S, because we get shafted with the exchange rate. Here, not so much. Might as well take the 6P. Reviews say something similar - but the 5X would still be a great addition in the lineup to replace the aging Nexus 5.
