Will killing the Nexus line affect future of Google's smartphone technology?

As we all know Google introduced their new smartphones - Pixel and Pixel XL, thus killing the Nexus lineup which had created a special affection for stock Android in user's mind. The Nexus devices were comparatively cheaper to rivals like Samsung and LG.
The Pixel devices are however much costly and are even said to be iPhone-design copy. Would you buy a Pixel at a high price just for the Google Assistant and new Android OS, or prefer a Nexus 6P over it?

Google Pixel Lineup is equally Awesome

Yes, the Nexus lineup Android devices had good hardware spec to the price. I personally have the Nexus 4 and it was one of the best phone of the time. But the latest Google Nexus 6p was not cheap anymore and the trend continued with the Pixel Lineup phones.

Personally I like the Google Pixel phones but the price is definitely on a higher note which will target a different segment of buyers than that of the Nexus phones.

I really don't think that killing Nexus lineup phone will effect the smartphone technology as such. Smartphone technology is transformed the way Android is designed and not the way smartphones are priced.

Google Nexus prices were much cheaper than Pixels series phone. I think now Google only want to target richer smartphone users. Before I was thinking to buy Google Latest phone but after the launch I'm thinking that don't to buy it is because I can't invest such as money in Google Pixels only for Google Assistant and New Android OS. I will go with other alternatives with cheaper price.

@shibaa987 Yep technology is definitely changing always! But in order to make it survive, companies should keep the price point in mind too, right? No doubt Pixel is a powerful phone, but shouldn't a common man too be allowed to afford the phone?
