I bought mine on a Saturday and returned it to the store on Monday. After two days of use I found that A. the battery life sucks, ya it's great and lasts long (if you don't use the phone). B. Lagging, wow, it's worse then being on a ship out at sea in choppy water and C. the loading speed is great for downloading apps but for browsing web pages and other applications, it get's a big F for fail. And one other thing, D. reception is bad, I had to put it at 2G to work in my house. I live in the largest city in Canada with the most cellular towers. Sorry Google, this phone is not a winner.
Pattha, 13 Dec 2014It is amazing to note that chipset 805 is not 64 bit, and Sammyhas instantly changed to 810 ss... moreThe only competition for Nexus 6 from Samsung (Note 4) has Snapdragon 805, or Exynos 5433 chipsets. Sammy does not offer 64bit 810 in any of their current devices. So far...the only slated phone to have 64bit architecture from Samsung is the A7, but it hasn't been released yet.....and I'm not quite sure what Samsung's future releases have to do with currently released smartphones.
EXELLENT phone like all the models before.Phones are not all about so slots.The nexus is always the first for firmware upgrades period.Nexus 6 with 2.k and 3 gig ram etc etc etc
say no more.A superb phone
People dont buy Nexus phones for the "features". It's a pure Android device and will never have a locked bootloader, or stupid KNOX, or Carrier IQ. It's a device for Android purists and developers. If you want a bunch of bells n' whistles.....go get a Sammy or an HTC.
Watch Out the Nexus 6 buyers as with the CES coming up,we might get a Upgraded version offing the micro sd card slot,or we might get this in Barcelona Mobile Phone Conference
i like this model all features exept this no memory slot no radio no removable battery so i don't like
Droid Ghost, 27 Oct 2014No dual SIM Dual SIM isn't a special specs because low end and mid-range phone like Moto G h... moreNo harm defending your purchase, but don't force your opinion unto others. Every phone has its pros and cons and the nexus 6 is definitely no exception.
Huge 'amoled' screen, phablet, 'over powered' chipset for plain vanilla android, non removable battery & no memory slot for expansion make it a pass for me. I feel the nexus 5 is a well balanced phone as opposed to the nexus 6. My opinion.
bswas, 12 Dec 2014all ok except front camera... why is it only 2 mp? it had 5 mp front camera, it would be good.Best mobile phone motorola
ranosuperman, 13 Dec 2014What the f*k size for Nexus 6. Size 5.5 OK enough.Note 2,3 or 4
Moto x 2nd gen
You have so much choice still y ur in this page
As soon as I found out that the N6 was out around the end of my contract, this was the only phone I was going to get as all previous incarnations of 'Nexus' have 'Mostly' had Rave reviews.
After using a Sony Xperia T for the last 2 and a bit years, I have had nothing but problems with it, Been away for repair (under warranty) Twice, but had many other issues with it, and to be honest, this Sony Experience has made me not want to ever have a Sony Phone again!
Now for the Nexus, I was lucky enough to get the Phone when it came into stock at CPW on 08/12. Prior to getting it I had read reviews from people who had their phones before mine and there seemed to be one frequent complaint, The Battery. I have now had my phone for 2 weeks, and I have to say that I am more than impressed with the battery as it has lasted a lot longer than I thought it would. Obviously I have taken steps to increase battery life by decreasing the screen brightness, sleep times for the phone etc but as I use my phone all day, this is minor adjustments.
In My opinion, The phone is excellent and although it does lack a decent front facing Camera, and a Memory Card Slot, The Phone itself, Along with Lollipop, has put the pain of the last 2, Sony controlled years, to the back of my mind.
In Summary, Extremely Happy with the Nexus 6!
All I wanted for Christmas was to get my Nexus 6, but my flop country is still refusing to submit it over here.
Yes, I agreed on Sony Xperia model. Totally crap. My Z1 broke down during warranty. After repair, it lasted only few mths then broke down again. Both times motherboard issues. May consider Nexus 6 as it look good spec wise. At 6",it's good for gaming too. Only draw back the front camera at 2MP.
my mini nexus (self satisfaction as i cant afford that:P
I had the Sony Xperia and switched to the Nexus 6 after about a year. Why? Well i had my phone before that for 4 years and hate switching. Due to age, damage and lack of working, i go tthe Xperia and at first loved it. Slim, water proof (within reason) and could do everything any other phone can do. THen it began locking up and freezing, gaskets came apart and couldnt use Blu Tooth and WiFi at the same time. Eventually the phone speaker went out.
Got the Nexus 6 and I hated it... At first. It was the Lolipop that I hated. The design was anoying and there was no way to that I couldnt find ot make it look like the older interface (Note to google, make it so we can change it to look like different version that we like.) So certain things were missing or hidden. Other things like the taskbar designs changed and so I had no idea what some stuff was. Very frustrating.
I am now at day 3 and after getting over how much I hated the Lolipop look, I found that I enjoy the Nexus 6. I mean its Gi Ass Normus and makes me use my Nexus 7 less now but it still fits in my pocket so its not too big just yet.
I have also found that the battery life is making it through the day without a charge. I work in the Texas Oil fields and so I rely on it for getting on Vega conflict, email, Hot or not (Im single lol :P) or whatever and it held up.
Its still too early to tell but looks promising. One thing that does need to be changed is the fact that it doesnt have an external memory slot. ALso that the sorting of contacts is terrible. At least for me. It imported seperate contacts for every single email and profile in my gmail and call records. SO i have 6 or more profiles for one person. Maybe I just dont know what im doing but it was a pain having to merge and delete contacts from long ago that Google loaded from gmail.
ANyways, hope this was a good read. Cheers.
