Nexus 6 review: Google shows it can make a big-screen phone

 

Which is easier to juggle on your daily commute: a small smartphone and tablet together, or a 6-inch phone that merges features from both? Consumers once

Beautiful hardware ; Great performance ; High-res display ; Android Lollipop brings fresh design and features ; Reasonably priced for what it is

Battery life is average at best ; Not great for one-handed use ; Camera stumbles with low-light shots

The Nexus 6 is Google's first attempt at a phablet, and is the most premium Nexus we've seen to date. It's powerful, high-res and comes with the latest and greatest version of Android. But be warned that it's difficult to use with one hand, and its...

Motorola Nexus 6 review: Setting the tone

 

Nexus 6 by Motorola marks a shift in market positioning for Google's smartphone lineup. Whereas the duo of LG-made devices that precede it cut back on certain features to stay attractively priced, the Nexus 6 is ready to rub shoulders with the best in...

5.96" QHD (2560 x 1440 pixels) AMOLED display with 493ppi; Corning Gorilla Glass 3 ; 2.7GHz quad-core Krait 450 CPU; Adreno 420GPU; Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 chipset; 3GB of RAM ; 13MP f/2.0 camera with dual-LED flash; optical image stabilization; HDR+;...

Lack of memory expansion slot ; Video sound is recorded in mono ; Battery is not user-replaceable ; The back cover of the blue version is prone to smudges ; Some might find the device a tad too thick

Motorola Nexus 6 is the right candidate to carry the Android 5.0 Lollipop flagship banner. It looks good, it's brimming with the latest hardware, and it's solidly put together. Thanks to its massive 6" display and that large Nexus logo on its back, the...

Google Nexus 6 (Unlocked)

 

The supersized, Android-powered Google Nexus 6 is one of the best mobile devices around; tablet, smartphone, or otherwise.

Gorgeous, expansive display. Blazing fast. Superb camera. Stock Android with promised updates.

Huge. No split-screen multitasking.

Phablet. It's the worst word, a word only spoken with an apology — or maybe with a proviso. "I hate saying this word, but it's the only way to describe this thing." But it's just a word. And like...

Stock Android Lollipop ; Big, beautiful screen ; Fast performance

Camera is only average ; Some software bugs ; Unpredictable battery life

Google Nexus 6 review

 

As the first plus-size smartphone from Google, the Nexus 6 represented a major departure from the now discontinued Nexus 5 when it was introduced in November 2014. Straddling the line between phone and tablet, the Motorola-manufactured Nexus 6 features...

The Google Nexus 6 has a razor-sharp and expansive display, a powerful Snapdragon 805 processor, the Android Lollipop OS and an OIS-equipped camera that takes great photos.

Broad and bulky, the Nexus may be too big -- in size and price -- for some users.

The Nexus 6 is a powerful plus-sized Android handset, though the slimmer Samsung Galaxy Note 4 delivers superior overall performance and native productivity features.

A whopping six-inch display isn't for everyone. You may learn to love it, but the limited camera software is frustrating.

Huge, clear, sharp display ; Clear stereo speakers ; Blazing fast performance

Too big to easily manipulate ; Terrible camera software

The biggest, most expensive, and best Nexus phone Google has ever produced. All it needs is decent camera software.

It's also the first and only handset (for now) that will support Google's Fi wireless service . For $20 a month, Google Fi provides voice, text, Wi-Fi tethering, and international coverage in more than 120 countries; data services cost an additional...

Review: Google Nexus 6

 

The new Nexus 6 from Google and Motorola is a great device that wins in most, but not all, respects. The operating system is great, but the hardware is a bit bulky and needs a faster camera.

Priority notifications let you block out the world, let it all in, or just get just the most urgent alerts. Holy crap, this AMOLED display is like watching a real TV. When scrolling through all your open apps, web pages appear as individual objects...

When the camera flash goes off, it looks sort of like someone bleached the world. Needs a software trick to shrink that big screen for one-handed typing. Occasionally unresponsive interrupting notifications dragged down my delight. Cool smart face...

The Nexus 6 Review

 

When consumers think of Google's Nexus devices, they think about the promise of receiving the latest updates for Android essentially as soon as they release. They also think about the value proposition that Nexus devices provide by giving good hardware...

Overall, I think that Google and Motorola have built a solid device. It isn't without its issues, but there's a lot to like, even if you're someone who has never used a phablet before. I had always been somewhat of a skeptic regarding massive phones; I...
