Google Nexus 6 review

 

Google's bigger Nexus compares to Apple's iPhone 6 Plus

Nexus 6 proves that Google's Nexus program is not only far from dead, it's alive and kicking with a powerful 6-inch phablet that runs its latest Android software. It's bigger than the Note 4, but not better.

Google Nexus 6 review

 

Thanks to the introduction of the Nexus 6P the Nexus 6 is no longer on sale at Google Play, but you can still buy it. Here's our full and in-depth review of the Google Nexus 6.

There are some good things about the Nexus 6 including build quality and some top-end hardware such as the screen, processor and camera. However, it's simply too big, unwieldy and expensive to warrant awarding it anything higher than four stars and...

Google Nexus 6 review - Now with Android 5.1

 

The Nexus 6's screen and battery life could be better, plus there's a lack of phablet enhancements in Android Lollipop

Google Nexus 6 review

 

Bigger may not be better in this instance, but the Nexus 6 still makes for a compelling smartphone all the same

Great screen Fast performance Pure Android Front-facing speakers Competitively priced

Video performance lacks fine detail Music performance a little soft Camera could be better No microSD card slot

Google’s Nexus phones have always been a refreshing change from the norm, and the Nexus 6 undoubtedly continues that trend, but in a slightly different way to before. Its screen is a love-it-or-hate-it feature that will divide opinion in a way Nexus...

Google Nexus 6 vs iPhone 6 Plus

 

The iPhone 6 Plus has some tough competition, not least from Google's latest flagship, the Nexus 6. Let's take a look at how they compare.

Nexus 6 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 4 comparison: What's the best Android phablet?

 

The Nexus 6 doesn't follow in the footsteps of previous Nexus smartphones, starting at a shade under £500, which is flagship territory.

We really like the Nexus 6, but on paper the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 beats it in every category here. Unless Google comes in with a really good price for the Nexus 6, for now it's difficult to recommend over the Note 4.

Nexus 6

 

A good (massive) phone that's stuck in limbo

Giant screen ; Well made ; Great front-facing stereo speakers

Awkward to hold – it's huge ; Slow camera focusing ; No longer competitively priced
