After months of leaks, rumors and wild speculation, the Nexus 6 phone has officially revealed itself in all its glory.
It’s big. It is powerful. And he is running the latest and greatest version of Android – 5.0 Lollipop.
HELLO GIANT MOTO
The Nexus 6 is actually a giant Moto X, which is not a shock, as long as Motorola designed it.
It was codenamed Shamu, and we can see why. It’s big, measuring just under 160 mm in length – a little bit bigger than the gigantic iPhone 6 Plus.
In addition to its size, it really looks like a carbon copy of the Moto X, sharing its rounded design, dual front audio system and rear dimple.
The obvious visual difference is the nexus logo stamped on the back, along with the lower location of the power and volume buttons on the right side, to accommodate the larger size.
6 INCHES OF PIXEL WELL PACKED
The Nexus 6 has a 5.96 inch screen. However, we are calling more than 15 cm, thank you very much.
This not only takes the Nexus 6 in a pleasant and real way to phablet territory, but its 260 resolution of 2560 x 1440 makes it a place alongside the LG G3 and Samsung Galaxy Note 4 within the 2K club.
It’s 493 pixels per inch really decent and, while not as dense as rivals from LG and Samsung, they should still generate super sharp photos, even with your eyes hugging the screen. Not that we suggest you do this, pay attention.
It is also an AMOLED panel, which means that it must correspond to Note 4 for vivid colors and true blacks.
Since AMOLED screens completely turn off all black pixels, it can also help to extend battery life.
Like the Moto X, the Nexus 6’s camera is surrounded by a circular ring around it. In addition to looking superior, it can improve the quality of the photos, although we have to attend the remaining review to make a final judgment.
The Nexus 6 also shares the Moto X 13MP camera – an increase from the Nexus 5 8MP camera manufactured by LG last year.
Again, it’s impossible to price the camera’s performance until comparing verification comparisons from different devices, so stay tuned to our final verdict.
POWER IN SWORDS
The Nexus 6 device matches the Galaxy Note 4 specification by specification, making it one of the highly effective smartphones on the planet.
Qualcomm’s powerful 2.7 GHz and 2.7 GHz Snapdragon 805 quad-core processor, plus 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB or 64 GB of on-board storage.
He is a beast on paper, and we hope he will also use flies, laughing at multitasking and games.
The 805 is more environmentally friendly than the 801 processor present in different devices, such as the LG G3 and Sony Xperia Z3, which can also help to squeeze out every last drop of battery.
Unfortunately, there is no microSD slot and the battery is not removable – the G3 and Note 4 make up the Nexus 6 in that regard.
THE BEST VERSION OF ANDROID YET
The Nexus 6 is surprisingly coming to the latest version of Android. In this case, it’s Android 5.0 Lollipop and its renewed Materials interface looks beautiful.
In Lollipop, there’s a lot more than a new paint job, along with battery optimizations, security enhancements and much, much more.
ONE (BIGGEST MARKET) BIGGEST BATTERY
This huge screen, along with all these additional pixels, is the proper recipe for a battery disaster.
Fortunately, the Nexus 6 has a large 3220mAh battery that, along with the extra environmentally friendly processor, the AMOLED screen and the Android Lollipop battery optimizations, should present at least a moderate to heavy usage experience throughout the day.
