I've been using it from the very first month of its release. Battery life was never been a issue. And after getting Marshmallow update battery is lasting almost 15 hours with heavy use! The only drawback of this set to me is 2MP secondary camera.
Anonymous, 25 Jan 2016I like the speakers, nice and loud enoughI don't, but there aren't a single phone that had good enough speakers for music listening... Just use a external amp + speakers or headphones. It's pretty loud, though.
I got google nexus 6 Oct last year. For one month, I could see that the battery life held up for a day with minimal usage of phone and whatsapp. After a month the drain on battery is extremely heavy. I have had to uninstall all my favourite apps. I earlier had google for work too and i have uninstalled that too and no mail connection. I have also stopped using whatsapp. I disconnect all radio connections when not in use and use it as a simple phone. But even now I am helpless and I have to charge from almost 10% to full battery, 3 times a day!!! For example, I had full battery charge last night at 10 pm and 7 am in the morning, the battery charge shows at 15% and in the meanwhile I have had no phone calls, no messages, no wireless radio connection, and the phone was in sleep mode.
I am on Android 5.0.x
Are only India sold Google Nexus 6 have inferior battery and discharging circuitry? I am seeing more complaints from Indian users on battery swelling and even explosion! Don't go for motorola google nexus 6. period.
Ishak1983, 23 Jan 2016Which you think i should buy nexus 5 or samsung j5The 6's specs blow the J5 away. It depends on what you want out of your phone. Buy what fits your needs. If you're looking at the J5 check out the latest Moto G on Motorola's website. Motorola has been making some excellent phones lately. But, like I said buy what fits your needs.
Ishak1983, 23 Jan 2016Which you think i should buy nexus 5 or samsung j5Love straight up Android. Fast updates. Great front stereo speakers. Very fast and great screen. Only downside is lack of a memory card but that's minor with the cloud.
Camera lagging, buttons are not design for one hand shoting and fast action. When multitask, is a bit slow.. regret
Ishak1983, 22 Jan 2016Which best nexus 5 or 6 The nexus 6 is the better option. A lot of people gripe about how big it is, but it becomes normal after about a week. I have a note 5 as well and it (believe it or not) feels small in my hands now. The battery life, the size, the speakers, stock Android, its just an amazing phone
nutrasweet, 20 Jan 2016Hi!
I have the chance to get the Nexus 6 for a bargain price. I do mainly web and music wit... moreOf course it's worth it! It is still a really nice device,with Android Lollipop,and it's also upgradable to Marshmallow and it is the stock version,wich is faster than with lets say Samsung's TouchWiz ,it comes with a fast charger ,it has some pretty good specs (not the best)but it can run Modern Combat 5 and GTA San Andreas on on max settings , it has two front facing stereo speakers wich offer high audio quality ,and the massive 5.96 inch display ,and the battery is a really good one ,you can play M.C. 5 with brightness to max and the battery will hold you up to 3 hours
In my opinion the single downsides are the back pannel wich is plain plastic,not rubberized and apparently the nexus logo can fall off, the camera is not the best in the market ,the size might be a problem if used as an every day phone and it's thickness even tough that means the battery is bigger and lasts more time
I hope I helped :)
My new n6 is endlessly showing Optimizing apps after I tried to update Android 5.1... I can't switched off... Please somebody help me... I tried the recovery method but in vain...
nutrasweet, 20 Jan 2016Hi! I have the chance to get the Nexus 6 for a bargain price. I do mainly web and music wit... moreThe only reason to nexus 6 now is the display, not the camera or processor. Its still one of the best display money can buy.
nutrasweet, 20 Jan 2016Hi!

For non headphone use the music experience through the stereo speakers is amazing and the large display helps showing a lot of content on a website.
The only downside is, there's no micro sd expansion. You can either get the 32gb version or the 64gb. But you can always stream music through google music, soundcloud, spotify etc.
Even if the nexus 6 isn't the newest out there, it will still recieve support from google for atleast 2 years more.
Don't let its age fool you, it's still blazing fast.

I have the chance to get the Nexus 6 for a bargain price. I do mainly web and music with my phones, so def no gaming. My question, should I still get it considering that its not the latest phone in the market.
This is my personal opinion slash review after using this phone for more than a year.
The motorola nexus 6 was my first time ever holding a 6' smartphone or shall I better say, phablet. The nexus 6 was an upgrade for me from the samsung galaxy s3 and this behemoth blew me away.
Since I have had this device it pretty much had its pros and cons, it wasn't a smooth ride till the present day but it wasn't that much of a bumpy road either.
During this period of using the nexus 6 I have dropped it around 4 to 6 times from pocket height and never has the screen been damaged, I do have some small dents and scuffs on the metal trim but to my surprise it's very darn resistant considering the weight of the device hitting the floor and in 3 occasions parking lot asphalt.
A lot of people talk about its battery life, which I understand is a matter of concern specially considering the display size and those dual speakers that need powering. Since this is a phablet, most people would either use it for media consumption (gaming, videos, music and watching live streams). I use my nexus 6 a lot for social media and a lot of youtube viewing, I remember that in lollipop the battery life was pretty much horrible when using such apps. Since the Marshmallow update, the battery life has increased considerably for me. Getting an average 4-5 screen on time with normal use compared to the 3-4 hours i would get in lollipop.
If I were to rate the battery life after marshmallow update, considering the display size. I would give a solid 8 out of 10
If you are into photography or selfies, I would try to stay away from the nexus 6 and actually would go for the newer nexus 6p. Though the cameras aren't bad for anyone that doesn't care too much about the overkill red accents or the blurry overprocessing. If I were to rate the camera quality, I would give it a solid 7 out of 10.
Gaming, Performance and does it heat up?
With the latest antutu update my nexus 6 was getting an average score of 72k, the highest being 74k and lowest 70k. Even the newer games still run very smooth and it's such a joy playing on that 6' display. To my surprise though it doesn't heat up much at all, when playing games like Mortal Kombat X, Dead Trigger 2 and Asphalt 8 the phone did get a little warm but not that uncomfortable warm that many phones have these days. It will make your hands sweat a bit but it's not anything to be concerned about.
So for performance, even in 2016 I would rate it a solid 9 out of 10
Screen and Audio
The screen on this guy is sharp as it can be, obviously now in 2016 and last year 2015 many devices like the note 5, z5 premium, s6 and lg g4 have better displays but don't let that be a drawback for the nexus 6. My only 2 complaints about the display are the viewing angles, which change color contrast a lot and lowering the display brightness causes the whites to turn a little brownish pink. The whites going that color doesn't bother me too much but it might annoy anyone that is into screen quality.
The audio on the other hand is amazingly loud, it's the loudest dual front facing speakers i've heard even till today on a smartphone. Though, this whole thing of being loud does come with its setbacks. The sound itself can seem very 'tinny' compared to the boomsound speakers from the htc devices, but they do still sound decent enough.
For screen quality I would give a deserved 8 out of 10 (if it weren't for the 2 cons, it would be a 10 for me) and audio also get 8 out of 10 (volume alone doesn't satisify many people).
So as for a general summary of what I personally think of this device I would say it feels solid, has a nice weight to it and its design might not appeal to everyone but I find it looking pretty nice.
For a media consumption phablet it's an amazing device, you might look a little weird using it for calls though since it might look like you are making a call with a chocolate bar.
The 'turbo' charger that comes with the phone, charges the device to 100% in less than an hour for me (though some people have reported issues with it, I guess I got lucky)
So... Would I recomend you to buy it?
If you are looking for a good quality phablet, that has a high chance of being supported for atleast few years with the latest operating systems then the nexus 6 is your choice.
If you want something new and the top of the line device I would consider you having a look at huawei's mate 8, though it will burn your pocket really deep.
Sorry for this extensive review/opinion, I do hope I solved issues for anyone having doubts!
