Motorola Nexus 6 Features

The Nexus line up of smartphones are highly awaited every year, they kind of set the standard of what an Android Smartphone should be. The Nexus phone this year is designed and manufactured by Motorola, an ex-Google company now owned by Lenovo. Hence it is no surprise that the phone looks a lot like the Gen 2 Moto X.

The Nexus 6 is a huge device with a screen size of 5.96 inches sporting a Quad HD resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels. The screen is dense and has a pixel density of 493PPI. The device is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor which is a Quad-Core processor clocked at 2.7 GHz, the graphic processing is handled by the Adreno 420 which is currently the best in the market. The only downside is that it i’s a 32-bit processor, which is unfortunate as Android 5.0 Lollipop that was launched with it was made 64-bit compatible. It now features front facing stereo speakers and should have a better output. Google has now also launched the successor named the Google Nexus 6P

The Motorola Nexus 6 has a 13 megapixel primary camera with Optical Image Stabilization and Dual LED flash. It is also capable of recording 4K video at 30FPS. There is a 2 megapixel front facing camera for selfies and video conferencing. Although there’s no microSD card slot, thankfully the phone comes in either 32GB or 64GB storage options -- which should be adequate for most users. The Nexus 6 has a non-removable 3220 mAh battery and features Turbo Charging technology by Qualcomm. This allows the phone to charge faster effectively giving 6 hrs of juice by charging it for 15 mins. The device has a Nano SIM slot and weighs 184 grams. Size-for-size, this phone will compete with the Galaxy Note 4 and the iPhone 6 Plus, but looking at the US launch price of $649, we think it might provide the best value for your money in the high-end price bracket.

A worthy upgrade from my old Moto G2 , i have been using this device for almost a year now and it is one of the best cell phone i have ever used. Nexus 6 is a combined effort of Google and motorola and these two tech giants have left no stone unturned to deliver one of the most premium handset available in the market.
The Good
  • 6 "QHD display. one of the best in the market.
  • Front facing stereo speakers.
  • Turbo charging ( upto 6 hours of battery in just 15 mins of charging)
  • Cleanest Android experience with Google Android vanilla OS and monthly security updates.
The Bad
  • Some may argue that the screen is quite big at 6" which might not exactly be pocket friendly .
