At first glance, it seems like it’s a page for any other phone - the LG G3 Vigor - but a close inspection of the page shows that AT&T may have jumped the gun a bit on releasing some information about the new Google Nexus 6. The Google Nexus 6 hasn’t been announced by Google yet. In fact, they haven’t even officially confirmed that there will be a Nexus 6, though, as Elon Musk recently said at the Vanity Fair New Establishment Summit, “the internet is pretty good at figuring these things out.” All signs point to a new Google Nexus phone - or phablet, as is likely more appropriate.
AT&T Lists the Nexus 6 for Sale
Over the past few months, there have been constant rumors about the next Nexus phone. Would it be manufactured by LG again? Motorola? Perhaps back to Samsung? What size screen would it have? Was this going to be even larger than the iPhone 6 Plus?
At this point, it seems almost certain that the Nexus 6 is going to be manufactured by Motorola and it will be a powerhouse of a device with a 5.9” display. The AT&T page for the LG G3 Vigor seems to confirm that it will be released soon, and that it will be made by Motorola. On the “People Also Viewed” sidebar of the page a device is listed as the Motorola Nexus 6 with a contract price of $49.99. When we first heard rumor that AT&T had this listed on their website, we thought it a dubious claim, but after checking the website for ourselves, we confirmed it - the listing was there. We just took these screenshots a few minutes ago.
Important to note is that the phone shown in the screenshot from the AT&T website is not actually the Nexus 6. It is actually the LG Vista, so it is entirely possible that the price posted is also not accurate. I expect that someone was getting the product page ready in advance of today’s anticipated announcement and, while the complete product details page is nowhere to be found, that didn’t prevent it from showing up in that pesky “Also Viewed” sidebar.
Update: Since our initial posting, AT&T seems to have completely disabled the “People Also Viewed” and “People Also Purchased” sidebars.
We are all driven by emotion; this article in Psychology Today gives us an excellent idea of the extent to which emotions influence our buying decisions. People whose brains have experienced some sort of damages in the part that generates emotions find it very difficult, if not impossible, to make decisions. While we may believe that all our choices are rational, this is often not true. And all of us have experienced “loss of control”; in such cases, very rarely is our rational self able to impose its will on our emotional side.
Most websites are still not designed to account for various screen sizes and load times. If people, who use a smaller device to view your website, have to pinch, zoom or excessively scroll their screens in order to navigate, the fiddling could cause great frustration and ultimately reduce the traffic from your site. Once a user suffers from a bad experience, they are likely to shirk your site in favor of a more tech-savvy counterpart. A responsive website design would help expand your reach and keep the visitors engaged. Here are 7 top reasons why optimizing your website is absolutely necessary.
To management, UX research and testing expenditure may seem to be an unnecessary one because it does not offer a clear cut ROI or impact the bottom line directly. For the design/ research team, showing how and why UX testing is critical for the business may be an impossible task. This gap makes it difficult to justify any spending in this area. However, as you read on you’ll learn how you can show that any investment made here in research/ testing is a fully viable, absolutely necessary expense for any business.
