The best of nexus. Still using it as my main mobile and handles all tasks with minimal lag. (much slower than the current flagship, but that's obvious)
I flashed my radio manually to 2.119 - having done the same previously with the Verizon update (2.118) several months ago. No issues on Sprint service here.
You can flash the radio.img using fastboot and not wipe whatever build you're running (official or custom ROM build).
Still miss my old Nexus 6. It was one of the rare phones I simply saw in the store and knew I had to get one right away. An amazing phone. The rear cover design was easily the best I've ever seen; it fits the palm perfectly. Like the phone was designed just for me specially, that's how amazing it felt to hold in hand. No other phone gets even remotely close. Nice that they updated it back to 7.1.1.
I am an iPhone uaser . But best built phone ever . It was built like a tank . Best screen , 2K display , sharp resoultion and great rare camera . Design is awesome , from corners it was very slim . Lastly in 2014 best screen to body ratio. Motorola was the in screen to body ratios in back days .
I owned a Nexus 5 back in the day and when Google launched the Nexus 6 i thought myself, what a huge a$$ screen dat was, nobody would pick such a huge and bulky phone.
3 years later and i'm on a oneplus 5T with a 6 inch screen.
The Nexus 6 was a god dam brilliant phone with an already high resolution amoled screen, stereo speakers etc...
Too bad i never had the opportunity to buy one myself
Anonymous, 29 May 2018It's a simple excuse android phone manufacturer gives. Should have just updated this phone to oreo. That would be impossible as the chipset itself does not conform to Oreo's CTS. The same as how SD801 phones could not get nougat.
gollygeewillikers, 29 May 2018Wow you are lucky Samsung didn't get you with their "SIM card removed... Restart" planned obso... moreSamsung - Never again. Stay away from it. It's design is attractive but it will lag for sure.
SohailSays, 29 May 2018Give it Android Oreo 8.0 at least? It's a simple excuse android phone manufacturer gives. Should have just updated this phone to oreo.
Wow. I can't believe this phone is still in the radars for stock lovers. Love it!
Anonymous, 29 May 2018I am enjoying Android 5.0 on my Samsung Galaxy S4 now and i have no compliants.Wow you are lucky Samsung didn't get you with their "SIM card removed... Restart" planned obsolescence bug. I got hit with both the S4 and Note 4. That's the reason I won't use Samsung again! My Google phones last longer. My old Nexus One and Galaxy Nexus still work. No-go on old Samsungs.

Very nice design. I would have definitely bought it if the Note 4 didn't exist at the same time. I wonder if Motorola will ever build a Pixel phone?
As good as any nexus phone could come. Better than the 5x and 7p. Still viable as a secondary phone.
