Google’s Nexus line-up is the only platform where to get an experience of Pure – Android .Now Google with Motorola are making the beast of Nexus Family. Nexus 6 is surely the Biggest and Greatest Nexus upto date .The big difference this year is that the Nexus 6 is getting major carrier support in the U.S., making the device more accessible than any Nexus before it. So lets find out that is this device worth your pocket.

Design

At first defiantly this the beast of the Nexus family in both Performance & Size . Nexus 6 has a screen of 5.9 inch which makes it bigger than Note 4 and iPhone 6 Plus of course . It looks big, and it also feels big,The body is wide, and it’s tall; taller, even, than Apple’s iPhone 6 Plus. So if you think iPhone 6 Plus is huge and you are planning to buy nexus 6 then i really recommend you to get your hands on the new nexus , other then that it almost fits Dude’s pants .  To the fact is the size that makes this nexus more appealing to people as now a days people want bigger and bigger phones . Google and Motorola very consciously chose the massive 6-inch QHD screen because big phones are what people want, and following the big screen phone trend. Even Apple which is  really in oppose of big screen phone released there huge phone recently. As the big problem with the big screen phone is that you cannot handle your phone one handed. Apple really tired something to help there user to reach the top the screen by double tapping on home button and the top the screen comes down , But here we dont have any feature like that .Other then that the size of the Nexus 6 is really a gift because the screen is prefect for watching videos and playing games. And Android 5.0 Lollipop’s new Material Design looks amazing over the larger canvas. All the fancy new animations, bright colors and slick visual tricks are definitely a sight for sore eyes.

The Nexus 6’s 5.96-inch QHD AMOLED display looks fantastic. With a 2560 x 1440 resolution (493 ppi), text is incredibly sharp, videos are clean and everything overall is just a pleasure to look at. Colors aren’t quite as vibrant and saturated as they are on something like a Note 4, but take nothing away from the Nexus 6; the screen is terrific, with all the rich, deep blacks typical of AMOLED displays. Out in broad daylight, it can be a challenge to see what’s onscreen (as with most phones), but otherwise it’s a delight on the eyes.

Nexus 6 essentially looks like a larger Moto X—same rounded backed, same aluminum frame, same camera placement, and the buttons are more or less the same, too, placed carefully on the right side for easy access when using with one hand. The power button, incidentally, still has a great texture to it, making it easy to find and easy to press; the volume rocker, meanwhile, is click-y enough without feeling chintzy. Overall, the Nexus 6 feels solidly built, strong.But the deference is that the back , the back material of the Nexus 6 is the soft-touch matted plastic looks great, and complements the contoured aluminum well. No matter how hard you try, the device is nearly impossible to keep spotless so that a problem here.

There are some saving graces here, however, and one of them is the Nexus 6’s front-facing speakers, which are very loud, crisp and clear. Chances are you’ll be using the Nexus 6 with headphones or in a quiet area anyway, but the speakers certainly don’t disappoint. You don’t have to strain to listen when on speakerphone, and you’ll certainly have no issue with hearing video or music. the speakers are almost too loud; the speakers will surely turn a few heads if blaring music on your phone is something you subject people to while out in public.

Finally, the addition of Motorola’s Turbo Charger is handy for giving the Nexus 6 a quick jolt of power.It’s worth noting, however, that your battery needs to be drained almost entirely for Turbo Charger to work, and the charging rate will actually slow as charging progresses. I’m not entirely sure if the six-hour battery claim in fifteen minutes is 100-percent accurate, but Turbo Charging does provide a quick way to get the Nexus 6 back on its feet when battery is especially low.

Software

One the biggest feature or the biggest reason behind the popularity of Nexus 6 is Android 5.0 Lollipop. Android 5.0 Lollipop is easily the best version Google has ever made, and it looks absolutely gorgeous with that “Material Design”.Throughout the years, Android has never been the most attractive mobile operating system out there, and it certainly wasn’t always this accessible. There was an adage for awhile that warned people unfamiliar with smartphones to steer clear of Android because it had a steep learning curve. Lollipop changes all that.

the Nexus 6’s large display is a beautiful showcase for all the fancy Material Design. Google’s new design philosophy—carded, grid-based layouts, responsive animations and transitions, and depth effects—is the best-looking thing in mobile, no question; it makes previous versions of Android—yes, even KitKat—look outdated and archaic. Simply navigating the homescreen, jumping into the app drawer, digging through settings, is a joyous experience. Lollipop just looks so wonderful in motion.

Its not only the Lollipop design the star of the show , But security improvements, multi-user support, multi-tasking overview, OK Google from anywhere, and a new Priority Mode make Lollipop an incredible experience as well. While Android’s fancy new notifications are powerful in their own right, they’re made even better by Google’s inclusion of a new mode called Ambient display. The new feature is essentially like Motorola’s Moto Display feature, but tweaked and improved in some key ways. Because the Nexus 6 has an AMOLED screen, the device will wake when picked up or notifications arrive. It doesn’t sense motion quite like Moto Display does—waving your hand over the screen won’t wake it up—but it more or less acts the same.

All of Google’s core apps, as you’d expect, have also been improved to reflect the company’s Material Design, and they look phenomenal. As cheesy as it sounds, Android is just good fun to use all around. You can tell Google put a lot of thought into how users interact with what’s onscreen, and it makes for a truly pleasant experience. Even swiping down the quick settings menu is interesting. As you swipe the tray down, the time time will dynamically get bigger, while the battery icon will float to the left slightly to make way for a settings icon.

Camera

Camera for Nexus 6 is the same can be said for Motorola phones. Last year’s Nexus 5 was hampered by poor camera quality at launch (inconsistent focus, awful low-light), and the Nexus 4 before that didn’t fare any better. Updates to the Nexus 5 have provided some noticeable improvements over the past several months, but by and large you wouldn’t necessarily put Google’s devices at the top of any lists, especially not when you have devices like the iPhone 6 Plus and Galaxy Note 4 on the market , which just provide some phenomenal camera experience.

Nexus 6 is a 13 mega pixel shooter with optical image stabilization .The good news is that any concerns you may have had about picture quality can be put to bed. taking many pictures from nexus 6 look absolutely terrific, which in and of itself is a miracle. Focus is quick and consistent, shots are detailed and properly exposed (for the most part), and colors are accurate. It’s an impressive experience, especially considering the Nexus lineup’s poor history. Of course, low-light performance still leaves a lot to be desired, though the optical image stabilization certainly helps to a degree. With an f/2.0 aperture, the lens is open enough to pull in a lot of light, though even indoor photos looked dark and lacked any significant detail.The dual-LED ring flash wasn’t so bad, either; it performs about as well as it did on the Moto X (2014), which is to say it’s bright and provides even lighting.

TechnoLife

The camera software is also pretty slick .The UI is minimal—settings are out of the way, and can be swiped in once you need them. Turning the flash on or taking a high resolution panorama is just a flew swipes and taps away; tap the shutter button and you’ve snapped a picture. The shutter, meanwhile, is extremely fast, too, and firing off shots happens in an instant.Video quality is also solid—it can record 4K video at 30 fps, which is a nice touch. I don’t know many people who insist on recording home videos in 4K, and since the file sizes are ginormous, the feature is there should you decide your kid’s birthday just has to be in 4K. Regular 1080p looks sharp and balanced, which is all you can really ask of a smartphone camera.

The really great thing this time around is that the new version of Android will give developers access to the Camera API, so we’ll hopefully see apps in the future that really make the Nexus 6′s shooter a more powerful (and manual) experience.

Performance

Every new Nexus devices have always come equipped with market-appropriate specs, and the Nexus 6 is no different then them.We’ve already discussed the phone’s screen and camera at length, but what’s under the hood is equally as important. And Google made darn sure the Nexus 6 packs the necessary internals to ensure users get a smooth, fluid experience.

TechnoLife

Behind that massive screen, you’ll find a 2.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB or 64GB of non-expandable internal storage, a 13-megapixel camera, and a 3220mAh non-removable battery. If that doesn’t get your heart racing, you might want to visit a doctor, this factors make this guy a beast ! .With Snapdragon 805 guts inside, it goes without saying that performance is top notch, whether browsing the Web, watching video, playing games or simply tinkering on the home screen. Android has always carried around the reputation of being sluggish when you least expect it, but that’s not really an issue at all on the Nexus 6. Google actually built an entirely new Android runtime in Lollipop, and the performance improvements are definitely noticeable. you can get in a few occasions when third-party apps stopped working altogether, causing you to force quit and reboot the app itself. Not only is performance top notch, but battery life is great as well, which is to be expected when you have 3220mAh to play with.When the Nexus 6 does run out battery, Lollipop now displays an estimated time left to fully charge, and the estimated time left on your device is still there. There’s also a new battery saver function that Google promises will extend device use by up to 90 minutes.

Finally, Google has tweaked Android’s “OK Google” hotword in Lollipop so that you can access the function even when your screen is off (your device needs digital signal processing support, which naturally the Nexus 6 has). it is powerful and accurate service, so it’s great to have access to the technology even when your screen is off. It helps encourage a hands-free experience, which is particularly useful when driving.

InShort :

The Nexus 6 is by far the best Nexus phone yet, but I still have a few reservations. For one, the size is almost unmanageable. We’ve grown so accustomed to big phones over the last twelve months, but the Nexus 6 still manages to feel oversized; it requires constant attention and careful handling. Maybe that was a conscious decision on Motorola’s part to really push the limits of what’s comfortable—it stands out, that’s for sure.

But still, buyers are ultimately getting an incredible showcase for Android Lollipop, a big phone with great specs, no bloat and a pretty respectable camera, too. The device is by no means perfect—no removable battery, no expandable storage.one of the best ways to experience Android the way Google intended. The bigger challenge now will be convincing customers that the Nexus 6 is a smarter buy over devices like the iPhone 6 Plus and Galaxy Note 4.

At $649 off-contract, it’ll be a tough sell, but it’s ultimately worth the price of admission.

Good Stuff :

  • Stock Android Lollipop
  • Big, beautiful screen
  • Fast performance

Bad Stuff :

  • Camera is only average
  • Some software bugs
  • Unpredictable battery life
