No card slot, and non-removable battery? Why Google, why??! Don't go the way of the Apple!
One thing that hinders a new Nexus 5 production is that Motorola has no answer for it. Since Google partnered LG for it, it is LG who holds manufacturing authority on a new Nexus 5. Unless authority gets shifted to Motorola, time could only tell if there'l be a Motorola-made Nexus 5. Anyhow, if that won't happen anytime soon, Nexus 6 is up for grabs :-)
AnonD-322334, 26 Oct 2014If that true then that good because Samsung keep on losing fans. He is lying.
Tcool, 26 Oct 2014LOL! It can't even compete with Huawei Ascend Mate 7.What made you become a Huawei fan? If my memory is right, you were a die-hard Sammy fan a few months ago. You hated everything which is not Samsung. It seems like you ditched your beloved Samsung.
Strange Days, 26 Oct 2014Dear All, I dont think this nexus 6 can compete with the Giants Samasung Galaxy S5 or Note 4, ... moreBeacuse the Samsungs suck, plus Google provides best optimization for Android on their phones, not on Samsung or nay other phones
Hey guys, I'm thinking to get a Nexus device as my next phone for I never owned one before. To experience Nexus is almost having Google in your palm. To feel Android closer to you. A one night experience that made iOS a joke beyond words describable. That's deep.. Lol.
Anyway, jokes aside, as above, I'm moving on from iOS to Android. How is the experience like?
I prefer one plus one. Because one plus one having the maximum specifications as compared to nexus 6. And 2 other main plus point is the cynagen mod and the price.
Tcool, 26 Oct 2014LOL!
It can't even compete with Huawei Ascend Mate 7.Time will tell us still congratulation for the Mate 7 sells 1 million devices I'm all the happy with the success good phone and cheaper with powerful specs, I take it over the Note 4 for sure.
But the Nexus 6 have the massive advantage for my it is the Android OS update time line which makes it out of those no stock phones.
Don't follow those whom dislike this phone. It's for 3 reason.
1. Best Nexus ever made since and making it to fight any high end phone in the market.
2. The Nexus 6 come with the best ever OS made with such improvement to make some UI less interesting.
3. Motorola make the Nexus 6, many other companies and some of they are fans wish the could have made this phone. Google choose the Moto build quality and radio over anything else.
You can just wait and Google may choose your favorite brand.
Strange Days, 26 Oct 2014Dear All, I dont think this nexus 6 can compete with the Giants Samasung Galaxy S5 or Note 4, ... moreAll those functions you find on Samsung Touchwiz are mostly useless.
1. Air gesture
Air Gesture doesn't work with any web browsers other than the default browser. Why to browser pictures, videos, music with hand gesture?
Only the "Quick Glance" hand gesture does pretty well because When the screen is off and you swipe your hand above it, a special lock screen comes up with the date and time, telling if you've received any new e-mails, texts or phone calls.
2. Air View
Online only works with default browser and why do you need it for before playing a video. Playing video by long press on index and all that still useless.
3. Smart Scroll
In practice, Smart Scroll is quite an impressive feature—as long as you're standing more or less still. If you're walking down the street, or if there are people in the background, it doesn't work as well. When the conditions are just right, Smart Scroll is a pretty cool gimmick, but it isn't particularly revolutionary and certainly isn't something you can't live without.
4. Smart Pause
When watching a movie and tour your hands the movie pause this only work in the player can't use on YouTube for example and still sometimes I don't need the pause.
5. S Translator
I can't even comments here so useless. I never like it and use offline Translator apps because this is still poor and require Internet.
6. The S Pen isn't used by everyone and personality I was stressing about the lost of the pen. At the end I just wanted to go without the pen.
7. All those apps and the Touchwiz eat up the Ram and slow down the speed of the phone. Note that all the Samsung Touchwiz apps depending on the Android OS meaning when press for operation the processor first read and act on android then go to the other process to the Touchwiz apps. Making it low although most of High end from Samsung are powerful but the speed test demonstrate the mid-range phone Moto G beat on speed the GS5 just because the Moto G run almost stock and are well optimized with free Ram.
8. The update time line take longer and once released still need to fix bugs that involved those apps that need to be well optimized for the lastest android OS. It's even wast because the update after 2 years of use become more difficult to finalized and release.
Reason, Lollipop can be installed to the phone with, 512Mb Ram and just work fine but Samsung announced update for the high phone only but not all of them only GS5 and Note 4.
So, the reste will take longer and some will not even receive it like the GS3.
While Motorola after the Nexus 5 got the android 4.4.4, Motorola updated is phones just 14 days after and break the record of update but give even the low end phone the update. As now the Moto E, Moto G, Moto G 2014, Moto X, Moto X 2014, Droid Mini, Droid Ultra, Droid Maxx, they all have android 4.4.4.
9. Lollipop aka Android 5
Lollipop is a very mature OS ever released by Google. You can even love the UI.
The Notification got much better, Lollipop doesn't eat to much ram still require only 512Mb.
The security go to the expectations, the OS have more battery jus and improve in so many aspects.
While Lollipop getting much better and useful the touchwiz UI are getting less interest that the sad reality.
Nexus 6 will rock.
Strange Days, 26 Oct 2014Dear All, I dont think this nexus 6 can compete with the Giants Samasung Galaxy S5 or Note 4, ... moreY can't it competem.
