The Nexus 6 is a 6-inch phone produced and marketed by Google in collaboration with Motorola which embodies all the great features of previous Nexus phones and the strong suits of Moto X phone. Being as Google’s first attempt at a phablet, it is considered as one of the most premium Nexus at its launching date. Coming in at 10.1mm thick, it is a bit thicker than average phones of its class, though it does not feel the same as others. This is because of the curvaceous design of the overall phone that gives it a distinctive feel. It starts out thick in the middle and then tapers down to thin edge. Equipped with a Quad HD AMOLED panel that spreads 2560x1440 pixels across a 5.96-inch display, the screen is not just big, it comes in HD as much as other smartphones these days. Also making a return from the Moto X days, the ambient display mode comes into the spotlight. Picking up the phone after receiving a notification would make the phone display the notification in a dim white glow. Very cool.
Coming equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor and with 2.65GHz Krait 450 cores along with a top-of-the-line Adreno 420 graphic processor, the Motorola Nexus 6 is a moderately powerful device. If you are opting for the power of customization without sacrificing too much power or utilizing the TouchWiz, the phone takes care of it specifically for you with the Android Lollipop 5.0 OS—making the handling and overall experience of the phone very fresh and vibrant. It is basically clean, minimal, and alive.
The camera packs a quite a punch on its own too. Though stumbling a bit in low light conditions, the partnership between Google and Samsung made the camera for the Nexus 6 to be able to capture pictures up to 13MP and with the inclusion of f/2.0 aperture, it’s a camera worthy of commend.
Should You Own It?
The Motorola Nexus 6 is Google’s first effort in actually diving into the phablet world. Though it feels a bit off in one hand whilst handling, it’s a great phone on its own. It’s high-performing, captures high-resolution pictures and videos, and comes with the latest Android OS at the time, you should be well-past your satisfactory levels if you’re opting to purchase this phone.
