Can someone comment if it is still worth buying Nexus 6. I am looking for a mobile with good performance within $340 (20k INR). Please let me know if there is any other mobile to consider.
Thanks in advance!
Ahmed, 02 Feb 2017My Nexus6 up to now not received the latest version 7.1.1. Why ?Staged updates, OTA's can take a while to reach your device. You could try side-loading the update to your phone, it does the same thing OTA would do. I also think I'm going to do that, if the OTA doesn't appear available sometime soon.
So Nexus 6 has gotten its last Android-update, which is the 7.1.1. Won't be getting 7.1.2 or others after that, but they will release security updates still. Well, I was already going to switch to a new phone in 5 months. It has been great 1,5 years with my Nexus. Shame that Nexus-line is killed and replaced with the ugly Pixels, so I'm off to something else then.
I have this phone for almost 2 years and I will keep it till will "die".
Pros about this phone:
-2K amoled display and 6"
-dual front speakers
-fast charging: ~40-50 minutes full charge
-Android from 5.0 to 7.1.1
-good battery life (mine last about 2 days with wifi,4g,internet browsing and calls) Note that I switch wifi and 4g OFF when I don't use them.
-verry good camera with HDR+ images
Cons about phone:
-if you play games the battery will not last long
-large games from EA and Ubisoft will have LAG on this phone bevause they are not optimised corectly
-having 2K screen will consume most of the battery so be careful when you play or watch for a long time videos
-it is a quad core phone,but when it reaches 15% battery (even if you did not switch to power saving mode) it will shut down 2 cores in order to save battery (you can root the device and enable them all the time,but the battery will drain faster so I do not recommand it,because I testes myself and it is not worth)
-large phone in wour pocket and in hand,but you will get used to it
To summ it up:
This phone is verry good if you want 4G phone with pure Android,dual front speakers,awesome camera for pictures and beautiful screen.This is not a gaming device if you want it for.Go for iPhone,Pixel or Samsung S7 if you want gami g.
Thanks and I hope this was helpful ;)

RiccoIgle, 26 Jan 2017It says this is waterproof.. But it's completely wrong.. Don't buy this piece of shit.. go for... moreYou do realize it says resistant... meaning it only will resist for a short time... no where does it say water proof...
It says this is waterproof.. But it's completely wrong.. Don't buy this piece of shit.. go for nexus 5X or any other phone
Alex, 24 Jan 2017Don't do the 7.1.1 update right away. It's loaded with bugs!7.1.1 work fine for me
aman, 18 Jan 2017my phone is running on 7.0 only , when will i receive 7.1 update its going so late ...Don't do the 7.1.1 update right away. It's loaded with bugs!
Get an Apple phone and don't get close to Google! After launnching Pixel, Google has ditched all the Nexus owners. Not only we don't get all the updates anymore, my phone has not received last months's update which has been received by all other Nexus. They say last minute bug caused it, of course, selling Pixel doesn't leave time for fixing their "old" Nexus phones ...
my phone is running on 7.0 only , when will i receive 7.1 update its going so late ...
jojonas, 14 Jan 2017What kind of English is that?Unbelievable.loooooolllllllllllll mate
anyone got 7.1.1 update in india??
should I skip december security patch and update to 7.1.1
I do not know what else man could look out from one phone , if ya can call it like that ..... I THINK THAT I'VE FOUND A PHONE FOR A LIFETIME , btw I'm pushing 43 .... long story short , my experience with my "li'l buddy" Nexus is surprisingly GOOD. That's the way to make a phone . Yes , I know that I can't go under the water and take a photo , but , as clumsy as I am , and he has survived it all , just can say - THAT'S IT .
Too dependable to Google , yes , that's the fact , but , hey , they can really help ya in an almost everything. WAY 2 GO , MY RESPECT TO THE MANUFACTURER . I just can imagine what Nexus 7 is goin' to look like when this is so AWESOME ???
THANKS ONCE MORE TO WHOLE CREW WHO WAS DEVELOPING THIS "LITTLE" JOY ... And for people who bought one , I'd congratulate to all of you for a such a good taste. CHEERS FROM CROATIA
