A Con/Downside that needs adding to these reviews is the complete lack of WCDMA and LTE support that seemingly every non-Apple smartphone features.
An iPhone 6/6 Plus sold in most non-US/non-China countries supports the vast, vast majority of WCDMA and LTE networks worldwide. Meanwhile, the international version of the Nexus 6 doesn't work properly in the US on either WCDMA or LTE networks (and doesn't work properly on existing Australian LTE networks).
It's a pathetic state of affairs.

Everything else...Note 4. So I'm in agreeance.
The Note 4 is simply the best overall device out and that probably won't change for a while. Simple facts.
Why should I choose it over Galaxy Note 4? I can't find any argument..... I was crossing my fingers for this phone... so dissapoited...
They forgot to mention size as a disadvantage.
Yeah some of us love larger devices. However not everyone does.
Nor is the Nexus line an established phablet line.
Still my Nokia Lumia 1520 is better in terms of battery, camera with 128 gb of expandable memory by microSD and qi wireless charging is not a new thing.
Time for the next Note-Nexus-iPhone CAMERA SHOOTOUT!! \m/
PS: Wager the Note will sell more due to the giganormous size of this Nexus. And 6+ looks too effeminate (which is good for ladies though)
Check Anand tech review. The display is just half as bright as Note 4 display. But compare the video playback. It's 7 hours less, even though the display is half bright.
As usual, Nexus with bad display and pathetic batterylife.
Project Volta, my a$$
fast interface and update
very good display color temperature and grayscale (gray, white)
low max brightness
The camera has improved A LOT, anyone saying the camera is poor are just blind haters. This is far better than Droid Turbo and leagues above Nexus 5. Certainly up there with the best like Note 4 and Z3 in day light samples atleast.
Battery life is nothing great, Samsung has managed to reduce the power consumption of the QHD panel a little bit compared to the Note 3 which at-least ensured it got close to what Note 3 achieved in IM/browsing tests. Nexus 6 has the same typical Motorola weakness in video play back tests. There should be more battery life in the video playback test in the very least. All that said this is leagues above what Nexus 5 achieved and so Google are right when they say this will give 24 hrs worth of battery life with a more typical usage, under truly heavy usage no phone lasts 24hrs except for maybe the Droid Turbo and Razer Maxx.
Nexus 6 is a pass for me but I wont hesitate recommending it to anyone who is coming from some 2011/12 flagship looking to buy a new phone. I will look to get the Moto Maxx
Another nexus and another mediocre overrated peace of crap. Poor battery, no sd. As always.
It is a disapointment that the review does not compare with Nexus 5 to see the real progress or regress. The larger the screen the closer you get to a tablet and it is easier to make a larger phone or tablet than a miniature phone, raw material is not a factor so cheaper should be.

They AVOID comparing Moto to others thats all.
[deleted post]I think Motorola phones are tested in USA and that office of GSMA doesn't have the equipment to test for that stuff...
That stock music player is trash and so is Google camera. Not worth that kind of money. It's alright saying it fits in the hand OK because of the curve but try to use the nexus 6 laid flat on a table lol. Doesn't look slim and sleek at all. Also the reviewer has just taken parts out of the nexus 9 review. Keeps calling nexus 6 a tablet too. Nexus 6 processor while very powerful will be destroyed by the snapdragon 810 which isn't very far away. Galaxy note 4 still rules in this segment. Vanilla android is no frills and who wants to pay a huge price for no frills?
Where is the detail of the display? Like brightnes and sunlight contrast ratio, where are those?
Thicker as anything..and still havent got any expansion slot..im disappointed..-_-..!!
It is first today that the reviewers are allowed by Google to submit their reviews.
