Review: Google Nexus 6

Form Performance Basics Extras Wrap-Up Comments  4  

Motorola did a great job with the Nexus 6 for Google. As solid as the hardware is, Android 5.0 Lollipop really shines on the impressive display.

The Nexus 6 may be an over-sized Moto X, but I count that as a benefit. It has more personality than many other handsets on the market, and the build quality is excellent. It may be big, but I find it comfortable to hold and use. The 6-inch quad HD screen is lustrous. The phone's signal performance was excellent on both AT&T and T-Mobile's networks, call quality was impressive, and the battery performs well enough to meet most peoples' needs.

Lollipop is the most attractive, usable, and powerful version of Android yet. It makes the Nexus 6's UI an excellent platform for not just Nexus addicts, but all users. It offers plenty of media options, excellent communications tools, and even some productivity apps for those who need to get some work done.

The Nexus 6's biggest weakness is the camera. It's not a bad camera; it's an average one. I was hoping for better.

If you're in the market for a phablet, I'd strongly suggest you check out the Nexus 6 alongside the Note 4 and the iPhone 6 Plus. It competes well with these devices in most respects, and includes the added bonus of ahead-of-the-curve system updates from Google.
