There is no denying that the Google Nexus 6 is the beast of the phones not just of the size but also because what’s in the inside.
The power and volume buttons are located pretty close to the center. The whole thing feels really sturdy in the hand, thanks to the metal band and the metal buttons. The curved back is pretty sweet. The curved back helps your fingertips to cradle and grip right around the middle allowing you to reach about 75 % of the screen. On the front you have dual stereo front facing speakers and they sound awesome, not like HTC One awesome, but they are awesome. One thing that I get though is the lack of IR blaster.
The Google Nexus 6 comes with a 13 MP camera with optical image stabilization a.k.a. OIS. The image quality is good but according to the Note 4 it’s not good because the Samsung puts on much higher quality pictures.
The Nexus 6 is bumped up with a 6 inch display 1440 by 2560 resolution and PPI 493 which is a quadHD a.k.a. as 2K. Colors look awesome with both contrast and saturation actually looking fairly accurate, producing some pretty awesome imagery when looking at photos, and even video. But you might notice some clipping during video in darker scenes, which is actually pretty normal.
So the Google Nexus 6 got a quite good camera, has a crazy display, but what about battery life.
For a 3220 mAh from 100 % do 14 % we got 3 hours and 24 minutes of screen on time at full brightness which is pretty much good according to the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. Don’t forget that the battery also pushes that 2K display, not to mention a huge 6 inch 2K display, so that takes a toll. If you use your phone normally it can last you a day and a half easily. So when it comes to battery life we are not disappointed. And don’t forget the turbo charging, which will charge your phone from 15 % to 100 % in less than an hour and a half.
It’s running the latest version of Android 5.0 lollipop and with each Android version update comes better performance. But the real power in the Nexus 6 is thanks to Qualcomm’s one of greatest processor for now – the Snapdragon 805 running at 2.7 GHz, welcomed with 3 GB of RAM and the new Adreno 420 GPU to keep that consistent 60 frames per second experience. Overall and generally speaking I think it’s safe to claim that the Nexus 6 has a great performance in every aspect
I have to say that Android 5.0 is really the main reason someone might want to get this phone,
So let’s sum up : super sharp display with awesome colors and great outdoors visibility, camera with optical image stabilization which takes picture taking and video recording so much easier and less frustrating, a more than sufficient battery which can be turbocharged from empty to full in less than an hour and a half, the latest version of Android which has some really awesome new features and gives you this ease of use feeling that you won’t find in any other phone that doesn’t have a fruit logo, and the build quality is arguably the best Google and Motorola have ever produced.
