I really want to like this phone, but I can't.
Nexus 5 is the worst thing that happened to me !

Ok then .
Sony was the first to introduce flagship spec , no sacrifice in design , lightweight waterproof ANDROID phone .

Phablets are wildly popular there, and I don't see any manufacturer getting over the Apple/Samsung hump in the US.
Where the #k is Nexus 6 ,on the Blog Post,is there any actual pic of NEXUS 6...

JaroB, 16 Oct 2014year 2000.... Ericsson R310s http://www.gsmarena.com/ericsson_r310s-200.phpThis news about water resistant phone and not splash resistant phone. Lol
Well people will always complain and hater will always say it is ugly but if this exact same phone with this exact same design was made by Samsung, you could see the Samsung fans saying it is beautiful and powerful. They can even see that this phone is as powerful as the Galaxy Note 4 is but they just avoiding to comment about specs but kept on hating because the Galaxy Note have a real contender.
dlads, 16 Oct 2014As for the OS, you root the thing and put a custom rom on it, aesthetics aside you put a case ... moreThe problem with a custom os is they always have some problem and the reliance on the dev. Some devs just stop support and disappear.

And that year was 2008
And before those touch screen era
There was a 1st touch screen phone,
That water resistance is nice, worked well on their 2013/14 phones.Hell the Moto G was surviving full immersion with only that coating.So yea take it as a bonus.
On the other hand, why they have decided to make 6" Nexus is beyond me.Okay it's not ugly, you can't call it that if you have seen the moto x '14, but so large device dunno...
Maybe Google is trying offer best in both forms, coz Nexus 5 remains in sale, so phone and a phablet it is.
AxtonMikelson, 16 Oct 2014Samsung Galaxy Phones are the uggliest phones i've ever seen. They look Ugly (Even the Note 4 ... moreAs for the OS, you root the thing and put a custom rom on it, aesthetics aside you put a case on it, unless you're a fool. In all fairness galaxy phones have some of the best looking cases available, if i could point out the HunterF for the Galaxy S3, probably the sexiest case ever, or without a case, look at the S5 and the Galaxy Alpha, I'm sorry but they're good looking handsets, always with high tier hardware and the newest OS is rapid, so I don't know where you get off saying it's ugly. It's vibrant and quick. ?

still sony is the first one who make water resistant phone for every flagship, not mid range or low range, then now samsung followed it. we will see that htc and lg will do it too, soon. but this one is not water resistant so why bother about it. google is true not too promote this as water resistant or splash resistant etc

Markandeya, 16 Oct 2014Not impressed by the design. A Nexus 5 like design would have been more appreciated. Galaxy No... moreu are talking about that note 4 which bends like iphone and can go through it smartcard.
u need to check the specs and price as well before saying anything
