Andreidinutu, 31 May 2020Keep hearung people:"old design";"bezels". Those are things i appreciate. Makes phones unique.... moreThe same for me. Plus, bezel allows the phone screen to have a true aspect ratio, be it 16:9 or 18:9 or even 21:9, and also eliminates the need for an eye-soring notch - it's still crap!
To me, Sony got the design right with the Xperia 10 and Xperia 10 Plus. No bottom chin to talk about, just a little top bezel to house the speaker and the selfie camera and that's it. Those are seriously good-looking phone.
Anonymous, 01 Jun 2020In addition it was Motorola save android from iphone intimidation. it was motorola give a way ... moreIt was Google not Motorola. They bought Motorola for this specific reason, to showcase the vanilla Android to the masses, who were blinded by the OEM skins. Once, it served its purpose (Moto G, Moto E, Moto X), it sold it off.
Again the intention was just for that purpose, and once it got completed, they got rid of it intentionally.
still using xt1103 today :) #android10 CRDroid.
In addition it was Motorola save android from iphone intimidation. it was motorola give a way apple made iphone, if wasnt for motorola, iphone just an ipad.
Motorola edge+ is pixel in premium form
ah Good old fellow Nexus 6
I had the phone for almost 18 months and I loved every single thing on it EXCEPT it was huge... and I mean huge like I couldn't use the phone with one hand. As much as I loved it I switched just for having a smaller device.
one of the best phones I owned
AhmedSLL, 31 May 2020Wether this phone was a good deal in 2014 or not, that's debatable. But let's look at this fro... moreyeah, google phones should be priced this way, that's why those pixels are a huge failure.
Crazy prize tag for a great camera phone and nothing else....
Ah, the good times... real stereo speakers, no bloatware, good Android experience, very good camera, and no unnecesarily things added, unlike actual Pixel's.
Of all the phones I've had, the Nexus 6 was my absolute favorite. I kept it going as long as i could, replaced the battery and if the screen hadn't gotten broken I might still be using it. I actually still have it stored and at some point I plan to replace the screen just to have it working again.
YUKI93, 31 May 2020"Of course, Qualcomm (seeing Apple's 64-bit CPU in the iPhone 5s from 2013) rushed out the Sna... moreAll 810 are equal.
Companies like Sony and HTC used software to disable cores to reduce heat.
There was no revised 810 for H2.
Still my favorite phone if i had the money i would still buy a new screen and battery to revive it by far the best phone I have ever used with dual front firing speakers the massive display the weight was hefty but comfortable the photo quality was not the best I will say but real good the placement of headphone jack was good and right in the middle the lack of volte made it unusable but that is ok the software experience top notch still the stock android at its best the micro USB was just terrible even though it had qc 2.0 the connector was flimsy but the wireless charging worked fine but was too slow for the use the ring flash was quite good and gave good illumination front camera terrible the haptik motor was real good and display was best in the class not comparable to Samsung but very well calibrated overall I can still use it with no regrets ever except the lack of sd card slot 9/10 for the phone
it may have bezels but you can hear proper stereo by dual speakers in the front of the device rather than one in the bottom side
"But with Motorola sold off and Nexus sales low, Google decided to kill of the line and start anew with the Pixel phones – like the Nexus 6 they were expensive and promised to make up for it with a great camera."
But the Pixel line still doesn't sell well.
This has bezels that put the screen to body ratio almost on par with the Sharp Aquos Crystal.
Wether this phone was a good deal in 2014 or not, that's debatable. But let's look at this from an other angle. 6 years ago, this phone had QHD AMOLED display, flagship soc, fast charging, wireless charging, stereo speakers...
All of this at 650$, this proves how much these new flagship phones are overpriced, because taking into consideration the balance between these technologies getting older, which means cheaper ( as costs of R&D are covered) and inflation, no flagship smartphone should cost more than 700$ in 2020.
YUKI93, 31 May 2020And yet people mocked the idea of the new iPhone SE claiming it to be a poor man's iPhone. Per... moreKeep hearung people:"old design";"bezels". Those are things i appreciate. Makes phones unique. Now i can't tell if a man has a 1000$ or 100$ just by looking at the front. I personally prefer bezels (part of the reason i bought a shark 2 was because it had a bezel). Also i like how on the "bad" section of gsmarena's iphone se review it says:"bezels,bezels,bezels" while that is the whole point of the phone...
Anonymous, 31 May 2020How could anyone use a "phone" that's 83 mm wide (!!) on a day to day basis?The same way people can use phones that are over 160 mm tall.
Anonymous, 31 May 2020Here are some published photos from Google's developer team, I have a Nexus 5x and a Pixel 3a ... moreI can actually agree with that. I have had the 6P, and upon using a modded gcam app with HDR+ Enhanced support, i was truly blown away by the level of detail it captured. Also, the colors and dynamic range was pretty good as well. I can share some of my sample photos if anyone would like to see that.
Unfortunately, the battery and bootloop issues made it an infamous phone.
It's weird to see this article praising the Nexus 6 so much. I had a Nexus 5, Moto X 2014 and a Nexus 6. I sold my Nexus 6 after a month and a half. This is the phone that made me never buy a flagship again. It wasn't bad, but it was huge and didn't offer much of an upgraded experience to the Moto X imo. I think the codename of this phone was shamu; appropriate name.
