- Positives – Android Lollipop, Decent Camera, Greater processor, and Screen.
- Negatives – Too big in size, no expandable memory.
Google launched their flagship device Nexus 6 recently, an upgrade of Nexus 5 which is not just an upgrade. The first Plus- size Smartphone from Google is a Motorola-made device that can do anything and everything.
The device is quite big and bigger than almost all other smartphones in the market but then calling it just a smartphone will be an understatement to be made for this beastly phablet.
The device is really powerful and capable of everything and the design makes it somewhat easier to use despite the huge size.
The latest Android version Lollipop makes it all more delicious for use. The buyers will get the Android Lollipop at its full capacity so they will surely love the device more. Let’s talk a little more about its features and design in our Motorola Nexus 6 review price and specifications post.

Motorola Nexus 6 review price and specifications in India: THE REVIEW!
Motorola Nexus 6 review price and specifications- Design:
The size makes it difficult to use the Nexus 6 with one hand and you need both hands to properly operate the device though with time you will get used to it. The Nexus 6 is Motorola made and you can see this in the design as it looks like an extra large Moto X at first look and you can tell really differentiate between them.
In case you’re worried if this will bend too then here’s some good news. The body gets an aluminum frame supporting it, so no #bendgate folks! 😛
Because the device is sloped, it varies from the thinnest 0.15-inch hump to the thickest 0.39-inch hump which is 3.8 to 10.1 mm. The height and width of the Nexus 6 is 6.27 in.
(159.3mm) x 3.15 in. (83.0mm).
The Nexus 6 with a body without any physical buttons weighs 184 gms which is a little more than Apple iPhone 6 Plus. But if you can fit that iPhone in your jeans then you can fit this too. Though it gets difficult to remove sometimes!
A comparison between Nexus 6 and its competitors on size and weight-
|Google Nexus 6||Samsung Galaxy Note 4||Apple iPhone 6 Plus|
|Dimensions||6.27 x 3.27 x 0.40 inches (159 x 83 x 10.1mm)||6.04 x 3.09 x 0.34 inches (154 by 79 by 8.5mm)||6.22 x 3.06 x 0.28 inches (158 x 78 x 7.1 mm)|
|Weight||6.49 ounces (184g)||6.2 ounces (176g)||6.07 ounces (172g)|
The body doesn’t look as premium as a device of this caliber should look. No, it’s not cheap in any sense but it could have been better.
The colors available are only 2 – Midnight Blue and Cloud white.
So not much customization, unlike Moto X which had a whole plethora of options. We hope the Moto maker gets working for this device too!
The 3.5 mm headphone jack is at the top of the device just like Moto X but along with the nano sim slot. Though there isn’t any SD card slot so you’re stuck with 64 or 32 GB of storage.
Motorola Nexus 6 review price and specifications- Screen and Specs:
Nexus 6 have a screen of 5.96 inches in size which is the maximum you will get in the international market for smartphones. An inch bigger than last year’s Nexus 5 and the biggest iPhone – iPhone 6 Plus.
It is super AMOLED and gorgeous. With a screen resolution of 1440 X 2560, Google gives you around 493 pixels per inch so it’s really bright and colorful because it’s Quad HD.
A comparison between Nexus 6 and its competitor’s on-screen front-
|Google Nexus 6||Samsung Galaxy Note 4||Apple iPhone 6 Plus|
|Display||5.96-inch AMOLED (2,560×1,440)||5.7-inch Super AMOLED (2,560×1,440)||5.5-inch LCD (1,920×1,080)|
Nexus 6 boasts a 2.7Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 quad-core processor that has an Adreno 420 GPU. It’s a top-of-the-line chip for Google’s largest Android phone yet.
To support this is a large Ram capacity of 3 Gb which is backed by 32 and 64 Gb of internal storage. Mouth-watering isn’t it?
Motorola Nexus 6 review price and specifications – Camera
Nexus 6 have a 13 Megapixel back camera with a Sony IMX214 CMOS sensor with a wider f/2.0 aperture and optical image stabilization. The camera is not perfect but compared to Nexus 5, we may call this terrific.
The OS in Nexus 6 is Google’s latest flagship Android 5.0 Lollipop.
The Nexus 6 also supports turbo charging by Quick Charge 2.0 technology making the charging of the device an easier and much faster process.
Motorola Nexus 6 review price and specifications- Battery:
With 3220 mAH, the battery life of Nexus 6 can be termed as excellent. Though it’s the same as iPhone 6 Plus and Samsung Note 4, it still performs better than them because of the OS i.e. Lollipop which saves the battery by at least 2% with its battery saving option which was part of the Google initiative called ‘Project Volta’. The battery however is sealed inside the Nexus 6 as it is non-removable.
Motorola Nexus 6 review price and specifications- Features:
The Nexus 6 is great for watching HD videos and Games. The screen is capable of handling the intense graphics which will mesmerize you. Sound quality is good too which makes the media performance of the device exceptional.
The specs of the smartphone make it faster than its contemporaries though it might not necessarily be the fastest one among the current lot. The browsing downloading and uploading speed experienced is good enough for normal/heavy usage.
Pictures taken and videos made on the 13 mp camera are decent and they give tough competition to other devices with cameras of even 21 MP camera quality.
The device is really really fast and Android Lollipop gives you a pleasurable experience.
Calls made are crystal clear both in indoor and outdoor environments. They don’t drop, the voice remains clear and it is an overall satisfactory experience.
Motorola Nexus 6 review price and specifications- Operating System:
Google Nexus 6 comes pre-installed with the latest version of Android, Android 5.0 Lollipop. One of the best things about Google devices is that OS we receive is in its purest form without any cluster of pre-installed apps. Lollipop is great. Simply best at this point.
The OS will completely change the experience you had till now with Android. Writing about it here will lead me away from our topic so you can read more about the Lollipop here.
Motorola Nexus 6 review price and specifications- Pricing and where to buy?
You can buy the device which is now listed on Flipkart for pre-order for INR 44K. You can buy from the below link which will take you directly to the product page.
To Be precise, the device is large, larger than any other phone out there, so it is difficult, in fact, impossible to use this phone with only one hand. You need to use your both hands which can be difficult but with the features included, it’s worth the pain.
The processor and ram are fine but only and only if the memory was expandable. 64 Gb limit can be a little obscure for those who love their HD games and Videos and can’t compromise with less.
The design and body are good and the phone Looks great but still, it’s not a premium device. The positives are many and the biggest is Lollipop. The os in its original form is easily the best you can have right now.
The camera is great too and you won’t be disappointed by the phone. The price though, is priced at $650 in the US which according to me is a little more. But given all the features it has and the competition the device will face, you can be sure of this being One of the top 3 devices around. I will give it an 8/10.
