... makes the Nexus 6 a non-starter for me.

The advantage of the previous Nexus phones (the N4 and N5 in particular) was that they has top tier specifications at a reasonable price and came unlocked. With a $650 price tag, there is little to distinguish the Nexus 6 from the Galaxy Note 4 or LG G3, besides the "pure Android" experience (which I can get by loading the Google Now launcher).

I was looking to upgrade my N5-- I love the phone, just not thrilled with the battery life. I think I will wait a few months until CM is available for the Note 4 or G3 and buy one of them instead.

Those facts usually kept me from seriously considering a nexus phone.

I agree with your comments about previous Nexus phones. But the N6 suffers some of the same issues compared to its competitors:

- No removable battery.

The N4 was the perfect T-Mobile phone (once you loaded the LTE compatible radio), and the N5 is great except for battery life.

At the same entry point ($700), I'd take the Galaxy Note 4 over the Nexus 6 in a heartbeat. If the N6 was priced similar to the previous two Nexus phone, it would be the Nexus all the way.
