Complete Review of Nexus 6 Phone


Ever since its release, Nexus phones promise exceptional value for money, and flagship quality. The Nexus 6 is a little bit different from its predecessors, because of its lofty price and a 6-inch screen which although looks beautiful but many people find it too large for their hands.

Design and Price

The price of Nexus 6 is higher than the launch price of the previous Nexus phones. The handheld is available in two variants, a 32 GB which costs around INR 45000/- while the 64 GB version is priced at INR 50,000/- It’s available in two different colors which are Cloud White and Midnight Blue. The design of Nexus 6 is very well-crafted and feels great while in hand. The design is very elegant and practical, owing to the slightly rounded back.

The size of Nexus 6 is big enough for you to hide a Galaxy Note 4 behind it. The phone definitely looks a bit big when you have it in your hands. Because of its big size you have to use your other hand to manage top-of-the-phone tasks like pulling down the notifications bar etc.

Display and other specifications

A 6-inch AMOLED display was planted by Google and Motorola with QHD (2,560 x 1,440) resolution and pixel density of 493 ppi. It has razor sharp text, vibrant colours yet not over-saturated. As compared to its predecessor Nexus 5, the new Nexus 6 has higher maximum brightness. It supports Qi wireless charging, which is sold separately. This feature worked adeptly with the Nexus 5, which attached to its official charging dock without changing position on vibrations.

The Nexus 6 is first to receive latest OS update and comes with Android 5.0 Lollipop version that means the final build of the Android M should receive by nexus 6  earlier than the competitors. The top-end Nexus 6 make certain that it runs smoothly, quickly start the apps, animations are smooth, and games can be played without unsteadiness on a 6-inch screen.

Camera Quality

Its camera takes great pictures with 13 MP and very little noise under low light conditions. At times it takes a little time to focus. It even have ring- shaped Dual LED flash which showed no advantage when compared to other phones photos. Worries regarding battery drain due to massive 6-inch display was solved with 3220 mAh battery in the Nexus 6 that will ensure you to get through the day although it isn’t as long-lasting as the Sony Xperia Z3 but it won’t drained after just half a day’s use.

Sadly, it has issues when laid on flat surfaces due to its curved back which would rotate the phone steadily at times when messages are received. This problem is not helped by the fact that it lacks the magnetic docking function of the Nexus 5.

Final verdict

Google and Motorola have increased the bar way too up for future Nexus phones with the Nexus 6 by successfully addressing the past problems in camera and battery. If you can deal with its huge size and want to stay on the front-line of Android updates, then the Nexus 6, unique and bold phone, is greatly recommended.
