For those who are waiting for 7.1.1 upgrade, you must do it manually. There is no more OTA by Google as Nexus 6 is over 2 years service period.
You can manually download the upgrade image from official Google download site and do a sideload to your N6. I've been with 7.1.1 for a month, so far so good. Just do a Google search for"sideload Nexus", there are tons of helps you can find.
-Nexus 6 has good performance but very bad battery. The phone would last me 2-2:30 hours playing game :|. It would last 3-4 hour watching video and surfing web. I have to bring the charger with me constantly and it is very annoying. I have to charge it 3 times a day which is bad.
-The phone can get very hot during gaming and charging. The adhesive under plastic back cover is melted because of the heat after a year of usage, that makes the phone no longer water resistance imo.
-The sound quality is amazing i would say, with dual speaker. It can get pretty loud.
-If you plan on purchasing the Nexus 6 i would get a used/refurbished on for like $100-$150. Other than that, go for other phone like the OnePlus 3(T), Honor 8, Leeco Le pro 3, Leeco Le Max 2, ZTE Axon 7, ect.
Donbenie, 02 Mar 2017It has gotten 7.1.1 but won't be getting 7.1.2 as per Google..Btw, i still haven't got 7.1.1 ota update for my N6... why it takes so long? I mean, we are talking about Google, not Samsung or LG :D
Hey there guys,
If you love stock android go for the Nexus 6...it's a good deal. However, if you want something a little better....there's the OnePlus 3 that supports DashCharging Technology
Nexus 6 or OnePlus 2?
I have the chance to get one or the other - used, but really like new, for the same price.

Yeah, I'm not confusing it with Nexus 6P, it's a whole different phone not made by Motorola. 7.1.1 is available for Nexus 6 too, but has a speakerphone-related bug so I won't update until there is a official fix. If they don't fix it, I just install some 3rd party fix for the bug. :)
I have been using this beast from past year....this is very good build. I was a little frustrated without 7.1.1 update and flashed it manually from google developer site and would like to say its worth it. its got new looks and feel and all bugs have been fixed and battery lasts a little longer compated to 7.0....Love it Nexus
