The Nexus series has given us some fantastic phones. Throughout time, Google has managed to prove through these Nexus devices that great performances can be obtained at a much lower price than the one practiced by the biggest manufacturers out there. The most recent phone in the Nexus series was the Nexus 5, a phone that was almost as good as the most famous flagships but nearly twice as cheap.
The Nexus 6, though, is something else and not everyone is happy with this change. For one, the Nexus 6 is not a cheap device. It is just as expensive as all the other great smartphones. Also, Google has stepped into phablet territory with this one, the screen size being 5.95 inches, one inch more than its predecessor. But there are a lot of great things about the Nexus 6 and we are now going to take a look at five of the most interesting features.
Five cool features of the Nexus 6
After they collaborated with the likes of HTC, Samsung and LG, Google has finally decided to go with Motorola for this one, a choice that probably many people are happy with. We’re saying this because the design of the Nexus 6 is based on the new Moto X, a phone that has gathered a lot of positive reviews on the internet.
Google’s new phone, although it was not mentioned at the beginning, is a water-resistant device. After the official announcement, people had to check Motorola’s listing in order to find this out.
Android 5.0 Lollipop
The latest iteration in the Nexus series is one of the two devices on which Android 5.0 Lollipop made its debut, the other one being the Nexus 9 tablet. Lollipop brings a whole new “Material Design” that makes everything look so much in the operating system. There are also some interesting security features, including face recognition.
Again, this is an aspect that was not mentioned at first on the official page. Shortly after the official announcement, people had to check the official listing from Motorola in order to discover than the Nexus 6 had a 3220 mAh battery.
This is one of the best aspects about the phone. The two front-facing speakers guarantee a decent experience when listening to your favorite music.
