Google Nexus 6


Go big or go home, right? Google’s new Nexus 6 is a second-generation Moto X on ‘roids. This is one Android smartphone that won’t fit in your pocket unless you’re sized like Shaq.

The 10mm-thick Nexus 6 has a 5.96-inch display with a Quad HD (2560 x 1440 resolution) display at 493 pixels per inch. It’s powered by a 2.6GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 quad-core processor, 32/64GB of internal storage (expandable via microSD card), 3GB of RAM and a massive 3220 mAh battery. (It comes with a turbo charger which juices up the device to 6 hours of battery life in 15 minutes.) You’ll also find NFC, Bluetooth 4.1 and Wi-Fi with MIMO.

On the back is a 13-megapixel camera with optical image stabilization and LED flash capable of recording 4K video at 30 fps. The front camera is a 2-megapixel shooter.

And, of course, the Nexus 6 runs Android 5.0 Lollipop.

T-Mobile has confirmed it will stock the Nexus 6 on November 12. AT&T, Sprint, Verizon Wireless and U.S. Cellular will also carry the device with two-year contracts.

The only thing not very Nexus-like about the new Nexus 6 is its price: $649 unlocked. Previous Nexus 5 and Nexus 4 devices were highly regarded for being inexpensive for an unlocked, off-contract device. Pre-orders for the Nexus 6 start on October 29.

Price: $649 unlocked (16GB), $699 unlocked (64GB)
