Google One company's response to the jury verdict in Apple vs. Samsung was still missing: Google's. The company has now responded to The Verge, and there's almost a certain bitterness in their language. Not, as you would expect, directed at Apple; no, the bitterness is directed at Samsung. The message Google is sending to other Android OEMs? Stick to stock Android, and you'll have no problems.

As far as I know, almost all of non top 4 Android manufs (that is Sammy, HTC, LG and SONY ) leave Google experience in tack on their devices. There's ~ 60 of them, an abundant choice. Still almost nobody buys them.

The reason no-one want to buy them, is that they are total low-end crap.
(HTC and Sony do not have a single vanilla Android device in production at the moment)

Do you really believe that among thousands of these devices you won't be able to find a single one that has reasonable quality? Of simply you didn't search hard enough. E.g. all of big Chinese consumer electronics producers have impressive Android flagships.
There's a reason they are not easy to find: carriers simply don't want non-differentiated Android.

I wouldn't be surprised if ZTE is at least 3rd by now ...with Huawei also quite high. Oh, and people do buy them - not the most "glamorous" & spotlight-capturing (in the "west" at least) phones, but quite popular nonetheless (at least with carriers; but that makes people buy them).
