Is there are anyway to install KitKat on this phone?
I absolutely love the normal 6.0 display size but the Lollipop Interface is beyond any nightmare.
Why Google, why?
Why can't you make a clean and straight forward interface? KitKat was almost there and now this?
And what's a matter with this new keyboard?!
As user of Nexus 5 i would say that the 5 IS THE BEST NEXUS made ever even now with 6 i see that the "new nexus" have only bigger screen and nothink else. FAIL from google and androir L (aka lollipo 5.02) with nexus 6
AnonD-45075, 31 Jan 2015I'm trying to decide between the Nexus 6 and the Note 4.. but I'm leaning more towards the Not... moreGO WITH NOTE 4.
The previous commented is correct:
Lollipop's interface is horrible!
To me going from Kitty Cat to Lollipop
Is like going from Windows 7 to Windows 8
Well, at least with windows 8 I can install the classic
Shell program and then it looks like Windows 7.
You can't install the Kitty Cat on nexus 6!
Remember - if you like a white phone the Nexus is not really white except on the back.
I'm trying to decide between the Nexus 6 and the Note 4.. but I'm leaning more towards the Note as it has a better camera.
Oh wait, I just found out few more things that peopple are complaining about in regard to this Lollipop:
~Chrome tabs in the card stack! (simply rediculous)
~Volume Keys can no longer navigate your phone to a silent mode!
~ Lollipop displays the most recently opened apps in the form of a card stack! Moreover, Google has clearly designed it so that the cards will remain: they aren't even deleted after you restart the device.
~In Lollipop you can now pull down the quick-settings menu from within the notification menu. Cool right? Nope. Whereas you were once required to slide the menu down, then tap on the quick-settings icon, now you can swipe the menu down, then swipe it down again, to do exactly the same thing. This is not merely a solution to a non-existent problem, it brings its own annoyances too.
I tried this Lollipop at T-Mobile store today in order to see for myself if the scrolling became smooth like on iPhone and on Windows Phone and if the user interface and the virtual keyboard have really imporoved:
~Srolling the same as it was before (no improvement)
~Default Keyboard is even worse than before! (now no separation lines between letters!)
~User interface is the worst it ever been! (the last Androind version has finally improved 80% and now it went back to worst it has ever been)
What's wromng with Google, I don't know.
Motorola Moto Maxx (DROID TURBO is USA version) if you dont like 6 inch display and lower battery lfe 3800mAh is much more better then nexus battery
Excellent phone in every way only to be overshadowed by a disastrous battery life making shelf this phone. I have used dozens of phones of the last couple of years. This phone gives me maybe 3 hours of usage without hardly making calls or streaming videos or even emails. Such a waste on a gorgeous phone why Motorola why
Anonymous, 28 Jan 2015Does anyone know if there's a phone with similar specs to the Nexus 6 (a bit smaller is fine) ... moreTry droid turbo, the core hardware specs are nearly the same except for the display and rear camera.
Motorola droid turbo is compelling alternative to nexus 6.

Does anyone know if there's a phone with similar specs to the Nexus 6 (a bit smaller is fine) but with a 1080x1920 resolution? The adreno 420 in the Nexus 6 is completely ruined by the 1440x2560 resolution of the Nexus 6, at native resolution I'd get similar (often a bit better) gaming performance on a Nexus 5 :(.
AnonD-356278, 26 Jan 2015I don't think the camera quality matches against the iPhone 6We have a fan boy/girl here.
Hi, I have nexus 6 i got few days ago.. i was daily checking the antutu bench mark.. bt now i am getting score around 53000+ and antutu saying its non verified score can any one tell me please what is that ?
I had a Galaxy Note 2, and dropped and broke it. I went with the Nexus 6 as the replacement/upgrade. It is a little too big, but in many ways was an excellent phone. The sound was excellent on the speakers, but not as good on a call. It really did function well with all Google's apps, with pretty much seamless integration. Unfortunately, this turned out to be the big negative on the phone too. I had gotten used to Samsung's music player, and it's ability to seamlessly sync and play all the music files I downloaded from my computer. The Nexus 6 uses Google Play Music, which pretty much makes you upload your music to play from the cloud (it took all night, and I'm not sure it got everything). If you sync your files onto the phone, it only recognizes certain file types, which didn't include the files I had put on my computer from my CD collection. The cloud storage (which seemed to have better file recognition) is fine where you have access to wi-fi, but less good when you're on the cell network, and worse still when you're on the road and going in and out of coverage areas. It would be utterly useless if you're out camping. I tried to find an android app that would play all my music files on my phone, but could only find one that did so, and it had a really clunky file interface and would only let you play from a single folder at a time. In the end, I just got completely frustrated with the phone's inability to do things my way instead of Google's way. Five days after I bought it, I went back to T-Mobile and exchanged it for a Galaxy Note 3. It's not quite as big or sleek, and the speaker isn't quite as good. But it does have Samsung's software, which remains superior, most especially the music player.
Anonymous, 17 Jan 2015can it use for slow motion (120fps) recording ?I don't think the camera quality matches against the iPhone 6
what are different between blue and white both have 4G LTE? And price in some shop are different?
steven, 21 Jan 2015confused between moto x and moto nexus........... which one i will purchase.? Forget moto X as it has a tiny battery and weaker cpu and gpu. Moto X uses quad core krait 400 vs nexus 6 krait 450. Also moto X uses a adreno 330 gpu while nexus 6 uses more advanced adreno 420 gpu. Would be better picking between droid turbo(moto maxx) and nexus 6. Droid turbo has far bigger battery and same cpu etc as nexus 6. The gpu is far more future proof in these than the aging adreno 330.
