Nexus 6 by Motorola

As one year has passed since the launching of the last smartphone from the Nexus line, the LG Nexus 5, this month we’ll be hearing about the release of a fresh successor which now comes from Motorola. The Nexus 6 comes with the latest and greatest hardware and software features – a Snapdragon 805 chipset and Android Lollipop, a 5.96 inches QHD display, a 3,220 mAh battery and much more, everything being tucked in a splash resistant attractive body. If you’re feeling interested, keep reading and find out about the plethora of goodies brought by the new and truly impressive Motorola Nexus 6.

In its retail package, the Nexus 6 comes along with an USB cable, the charger and a little tool for ejecting the SIM card. The Motorola Turbo Charger that comes with the phone is said to be able to recharge your device in 15 minutes enough as to make it last for 8 hours.

The Nexus 6 stands at 159.3 x 83 x 10.1 mm and has a weight of 184 grams, which may seem quite something, but these are some reasonable measurements as we’re talking about an almost 6-inch display packed in a very compact body. The build quality is top-notch, with an elegant aluminum frame that surrounds the water resistant body. The back cover features a matte finish and has a curved shape, thus offering a wonderful hand grip and keeping fingerprints away from sticking to the handset.

The frontal part of the phablet is occupied by a 5.96 inches AMOLED capacitive touchscreen that offers a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels, has a pixel density of 493 ppi and is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. As you probably expect it, the device offers a gorgeous image quality (if you ask me), with punchy colors, great contrast, extremely wide viewing angles and a wonderful sunlight legibility. If you can deal with its size, I’m betting that you’ll love it.

Now, let’s get to an even more interesting part. The software. Motorola’s Nexus 6 comes loaded with Android’s freshly released Lollipop 5.0 version, which is by far the best thing to happen at the Android camp. The old appearance has been refurbished a bit, the homescreen now holds a different arrangement for the apps, you have three folders which hold the Google, Play and Create apps. The app drawer has been changed too and has a white background now, but works the same as before. If you’re familiar with Android, you’ll surely notice the differences and love them; if not, you’ll befriend it quick, as it’s prettier and more intuitive than ever.
In terms of hardware, the Nexus 6 comes powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 chipset, having a quad-core 2.7 GHz Krait 450 processor, Adreno 420 GPU, 3 GB of RAM and 32 or 64 GB of internal storage. As you probably already suspect, the phablet is a real powerhorse and delivers a magnificent performance, everything working like a charm at all times.

For taking pictures, the Nexus 6 comes with a 13 MP snapper which features a Sony IMX 214 image sensor, captures stills with a maximum resolution of 4128 x 3096 pixels and holds a dual-LED flash for helping in low light conditions. The camera also holds support for optical image stabilization, panorama, HDR, dual recording and more. The photos produced offer a very good image quality, with accurate colors, nice contrast and a big amount of resolved detail.
The video camera is also an excellent performer, holds support for optical stabilization and will deliver some beautiful 2160p videos @30fps.

At the connectivity department, the Nexus 6 holds support for quad-band GSM, GPRS, EDGE, HSDPA, LTE, dual-band Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac with DLNA, Wi-Fi Direct and Hotspot, Bluetooth 4.1 with LE and A2DP, microUSB 2.0 with USB Host and On-the-go and NFC.

Some other features from the Nexus 6s’ package are Google Chrome for offering you a great browsing experience, Google Now which serves as a personal assistant, Google Docs, Sheets and Slides for managing document files, Google Fit as a health and fitness monitoring app, two great media players for listening to music or playing videos, a GPS receiver with A-GPS and GLONASS support, Google Maps for helping you find your way around and much more.

When it comes to battery life, the Motorola Nexus 6 is kept “alive” by a 3,220 mAh battery and will last for 8 hours of web browsing or 10 of video playback.
