Google Nexus 6 (Motorola XT1100-M0E10) Smartphone Review

 

You have grown! The Google Nexus 6 is manufactured by Motorola and follows Google's philosophy in terms of size at (almost) 6 inches. Our review reveals whether Google's device, which is not really a bargain anymore, can compete with the iPhone 6 Plus...

Very sturdy case, Sophisticated materials, Good front speakers, Great voice quality, Good camera equipment, High-contrast and high-resolution display, "Ambient Display" feature, Low temperature development

Attracts fingerprints, No SD slot, Hands-free via speakers not perfect, Some features not reliable, Below-average WLAN signal

The Nexus 6 is a phablet that fits well into the Nexus-series: Sturdy, nice design and fast with small points of criticism.

Nexus 6 Review

 

Huge. That was my first thought when I first wrapped my hands around Google's Nexus 6, the successor to the Nexus 5. The Nexus 6 is one of the largest Android smartphones out there — it has a 6-inch screen — and it definitely does not fit in my pocket.

Google Nexus 6 review: A larger Moto X with fewer Motorola enhancements

 

The new Nexus 6 is a six-inch Moto X running a pure Google experience. Matthew is convinced the Motorola enhancements make the Moto X a better choice.

Kickstand ; Holster ; Provides modest protection

Sliding iPhone into holster could be easier

The Nexus 6 is the best Nexus ever and for once a Nexus device is not lacking in any specification. The price reflects the high-end nature of the Nexus 6, but the competition in the Android marketplace is also much stiffer than it was in the past. I...

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

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...

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.

Google Nexus 6 ( 64GB, white)

 

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...

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.

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...

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...
