    purchased on 2nd March from Flipkart and all of a sudden switched off went to Service & Communication Solutions, Kotla Mubarakpur, New Delhi, authorised service centre of Motorola vide s.no.SRCS dt The IMEI no. The authorised centre says since screen is not displaying chargences will be levied /- under warranty. The Flipkart has issued international model. Is this the fault of the consumer who has got warranty of one year on paper. submitted the complaint to the company. if such practice will be followed then who will follow Amazon or Flipkart. The first time I did surfing on my mobile on 4th March and the second time on 7th May and within two months service centre is helpless and not able to support or contact the Motorola whose service centre they are running. Disgusting. I need replacement.Otherwise forced to move to consumer court. if such practice will be followed who will buy products from Flipkart or Amazon. Evenafter in writing one year warranty the service centre is claiming that the product is of international model.

    Engadget Review

    The Nexus 6 is Google's first attempt at a phablet, and is the most premium Nexus we've seen to date. It's powerful, high-res and comes with the latest and greatest version of Android. But be warned that it's difficult to use with one hand, and its battery life is average at best.

    Pros

    • Beautiful hardware
    • Great performance
    • High-res display
    • Android Lollipop brings fresh design and features
    • Reasonably priced for what it is

    Cons

    • Battery life is average at best
    • Not great for one-handed use
    • Camera stumbles with low-light shots

    The Nexus 6 (codenamed Shamu) is a phablet co-developed by Google and Motorola Mobility that runs the Androidoperating system. The successor to the Nexus 5, it is the sixth smartphone in the Google Nexus series, a family of Android consumer devices marketed by Google and built by an original equipment manufacturer partner. Nexus&#;6 and the HTC Nexus 9 served as the launch devices for Android "Lollipop".

    The Nexus&#;6's design and hardware is very similar to that of the second-generation Moto X, which was released around the same time. The Nexus 6 is larger and has higher specifications.

    Release[edit]

    The Nexus&#;6 was unveiled on October 15, , with pre-order availability since October 29, , and a delivery date in early November.[6] Off-contract pricing in the United States was US$ for the 32&#;GB model and US$ for the 64&#;GB model.[7] The Nexus 6 was available through Google Play Store, Motorola Mobility, Best Buy, T-Mobile, AT&T, Sprint, U.S. Cellular, and Verizon Wireless in the United States.[8]

    In November , availability was announced for 12 other countries, including Australia, Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, India,[9]Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom.[10]

    The AT&T version is SIM-locked, with tethering disabled until a fee is paid to enable it, and comes with custom ringtones.[11]

    On January 26, , Motorola (now a subsidiary of Chinese firm Lenovo) announced that a similar device would be released in China, named Moto X Pro; it excludes Google services and applications, but still runs a similarly stock version of Android.[12][13]

    On April 22, , it was announced that the Nexus 6 would be the only phone then supported by Google's new Project Fi venture.[14]

    Following the September release of the Nexus 6's successor, the Nexus 6P, Google stopped selling the Nexus 6 on the Play Store in December [15] Google has a stated policy of at least two years of software updates and three years (or 18 months after the last sale date on the Play Store, whichever is longer) of security updates.[16] The Nexus 6 had guaranteed software updates through October and security patches through October ; however, Google announced that the Nexus 6 would receive the Android update. This update was initially expected in December ,[17] but it was delayed until January 5, [18] due to a "last minute bug".[19] In January , Google announced that the Nexus 6, along with the Nexus 9 tablet, would not receive the Nougat update, making the last major software update from Google themselves; however, the phone was to continue to receive monthly security patches while retaining the last major Android version received until October [20]

    Specifications[edit]

    Hardware[edit]

    The Nexus 6 is powered by a &#;GHz quad-core Snapdragon processor with 3&#;GB of RAM, and either 32 or 64&#;GB of internal storage. It features a &#;mAh battery with quick charging technology that promises to deliver six hours of operation after 15 minutes of charging.[21][22] The Nexus&#;6 uses a inch (marketed as six-inch) QHDAMOLEDPenTile (RGBG) display with a resolution of × pixels (&#;PPI), and includes a megapixel rear-facing camera with optical image stabilization (OIS), surrounded by a dual LED flash ring, and a two-megapixel camera on front.

    Like its predecessor, the Nexus&#;6 does not have a microSD card slot, a removable battery, or an FM radio receiver/transmitter.

    The Nexus&#;6's hardware supports USB On-The-Go for storage devices, the functionality was originally disabled by software but was enabled in later Android updates.

    Software[edit]

    The Nexus 6 was Google's first phone to launch with HDR+. HDR+ which takes a burst of shots with short exposures, selectively aligning the sharpest shots and averaging them using computational photography techniques. Short exposures avoids blur, blowing out highlights and averaging multiple shots reduces noise. HDR+ is similar to lucky imaging used in astrophotography.[23] HDR+ is processed on the Qualcomm Hexagon DSP.[24]

    The Nexus&#;6 was released with Android Lollipop.

    The Nexus&#;6 was the first Android device to have integrated IMS WiFi calling on T-Mobile, which was issued via an OTA update.[25] WiFi Calling on T-Mobile's network has existed since ,[26] although this is the first time native WiFi calling has been integrated into the core of Android. Previously T-Mobile offered WiFi calling on select Android handsets using software from Kineto Wireless.[27]

    In September , Android was rolled out to the Nexus&#;6, containing a fix for the Stagefright bug.[28]

    In November , Nexus&#;6 started receiving Android Marshmallow update across the world.[29] The following month, the Nexus 6 became one of the first devices to get the Android update.[30]

    On August 22, , Android Nougat began rolling out to several supported Nexus devices; however the one for Nexus 6 was delayed. Weeks after the official roll-out, Google stated that the Nexus 6 release would come "in the coming weeks."[31] Nougat was eventually released for the Nexus 6 on October 3, , 6 weeks after the official Nougat release. There has been no official statement on what caused the delay.[32]

    On October 11, , Google officially announced Android Nougat after it had been debuted with the Google Pixel release the week before. This announcement confirmed that the Nexus 6, along with other supported devices, would receive Android in early December.[17] On December 5, , Google announced the official release of Android Nougat[33] with most supported Google devices receiving the update; however, the Nexus 6 was not included.[34] On December 27, , Google told Android Police that a "last minute bug" was discovered and will delay the update until "early January".[18] Google officially released Android for the Nexus 6 on January 5, [18]

    Reception[edit]

    Matt Swider from TechRadar wrote: "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." The Nexus 6 was given out of 5 stars in the TechRadar review.[35]

    Known issues[edit]

    • Some devices delivered through AT&T have a bug that causes the devices to boot to a black screen. AT&T will replace these defective units.[36]
    • Devices with SprintSIM cards experience issues with receiving calls.[37]
    • Some devices have an issue that causes the phone's back panel to come off. The issue may be due to the glue used for the back panel or the expanding battery pack that could be a fire hazard. Motorola is offering replacements for affected devices.[38]
    • It is heard that Google is downgrading Nexus 6 phones from Android to for unknown reason.[39]
    • The Nexus logo on the back of the device is known to peel off.[40]

    Google Nexus 6 review: Google's first phablet foray delivers pure Android on a huge display

    It's also the first and only handset (for now) that will support Google's Fi wireless service. For $20 a month, Google Fi provides voice, text, Wi-Fi tethering, and international coverage in more than countries; data services cost an additional $10 per gigabyte. The service is currently invite-only; you can request an invite here.

    Nevertheless, the Nexus 6 isn't inexpensive and, despite its large size, comes up short in a few key areas.

    Review Update: Spring

    The Nexus 6 is a very big phone that delivers a pure Android experience, meaning that Motorola has been forbidden from making tweaks to the user interface or underlying software. When it debuted in late , the Nexus 6's support for Lollipop gave it a significant edge over Android models stuck with an older version of the OS. Google's rollout of the newest version of Lollipop to an expanded field of handsets erases that advantage.

    Another factor to consider is the handful of new flagship phones announced at Mobile World Congress in March , including the Samsung Galaxy S6 and HTC One M9 . If you're looking to buy a new phone in the next few months, know that the competitive landscape will soon be shifting.

    If you're looking to buy a larger phone or phablet more immediately, we think there are better options than the Nexus 6. The iPhone 6 Plus is an elegantly crafted device that features a fantastic camera and user-friendly OS. The Moto X is quite similar to the Nexus 6 but smaller and less expensive. For now, our favorite Android phablet remains the Galaxy Note 4 . It features a slimmer design than the Nexus 6 at a comparable price point (with some variability by vendor) as well as a powerful processor that performs equally well, a superior suite of native productivity tools, and a powerful built-in S Pen stylus.

    Availability

    In the US, you can order an unlocked Nexus 6 from the Google Store for $ (32GB) and $ (64GB). Prices vary among the carriers that stock the device, which include T-Mobile, AT&T, Sprint and US Cellular; Verizon added the Nexus 6 to its lineup in March The handset is sold in 28 other countries, with 4G LTE variants both for the Americas and countries on other continents. In the UK, it costs £ (32GB) and £ (64GB). The 32GB model costs AU$ in Australia and the 64GB model is AU$

    Hardware and key components: The guts of the operation

    The phone is powered by a quad-core, GHz Snapdragon processor from Qualcomm, which is the same CPU found in other powerhouse devices like the reworked LG G3 Cat 6 for Korea, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and the Motorola Droid Turbo . The processor includes the Adreno GPU for smooth graphics rendering and gameplay.

    Giving the Nexus 6 its juice is a non-removable 3, mAh battery. Similar to its predecessors, the battery has wireless charging capabilities, and can supposedly regain 6 hours of power after 15 minutes of charging with a specialized Turbo charger that features Qualcomm Quick Charge technology. We'll detail how these components perform later on in the review.

    The handset has a megapixel camera with a dual-LED flash that encircles the lens and a 2-megapixel front shooter. Additional goodies include 3GB of RAM and 16 or 32GB of internal storage. Unfortunately, there is no option to insert a microSD card for additional memory.

    Design: AKA, the Motorola Moto 'XXL'

    The Nexus 6 looks a lot like the second-gen Motorola Moto X -- but on steroids. It has the same curved back, an aluminum trim that dips down into the backplate at the top edge, and a branded M-dimple, for Motorola.

    Size and weight

    Google Nexus 6Samsung Galaxy Note 4Apple iPhone 6 Plus
    Dimensions x x inches ( x 83 x mm) x x inches ( by 79 by mm) x x inches ( x 78 x mm)
    Weight ounces (g) ounces (g) ounces (g)

    The Nexus 6 is a big device, and at inches across, it may be too wide for some users to grip comfortably. Weighing in at nearly ounces, it's also heavier (and thicker) than both the Galaxy Note 4 and iPhone Plus 6.

    It also doesn't feel as well built as those other devices. The handset doesn't look cheap in any way - we appreciate the dark aluminum trim and dual front-facing speaker grilles - but it comes up short next to the Note 4's glossy, contemporary aesthetic and iPhone 6 Plus's lightweight all-metal quality.

    The Nexus 6's plastic back also calls attention to fingerprints. We reviewed the Midnight Blue variant and had to constantly wipe it down to clear away smudges; every time we did this, the plastic rear made crackling noises as we pressed and rubbed against it. This isn't enough to turn us away from the Nexus 6 altogether, but for a $ device, it was still unnerving to hear. Prints may be less visible on the Cloud White version.

    Display: Going big for a reason

    The great benefit of the handset's larger profile is the enormous screen. Vibrant, razor sharp, and immersive, the phone serves up nearly six inches of media-viewing goodness. Web pages, HD videos and graphics-intensive games all looked buttery-smooth, with dynamic colors and fine details.

    Both the Nexus 6 and the Galaxy Note 4 have a higher resolution and pixel density than the iPhone 6 Plus, with the latter having the most pixels packed per inch among the three. Though the specs vary slightly, all the screens look equally crisp and well defined.

    Display resolutions, compared

    Google Nexus 6Samsung Galaxy Note 4Apple iPhone 6 Plus
    Displayinch AMOLED (2,x1,)inch Super AMOLED (2,x1,)inch LCD (1,x1,)
    Pixel densityppippippi

    We noticed some differences with regard to color, however. Given the iPhone's LCD screen and the other two's AMOLED display, there are obvious distinctions in temperature, with green, blue and red hues appearing more saturated and rich on the Galaxy Note 4. The iPhone shows the purest and brightest whites, which are especially apparent next to the Nexus 6, whose whites look faintly yellow. The deepest blacks are produced by the Note 4; Apple's phablet displays black with an almost bluish tone; and the Nexus ranks in the middle.

    In general, it's a matter of personal preference. The Galaxy Note 4's screen, for which you can adjust display tones, delivers the greatest punch, though some colors, especially skin tones, appear unrealistic. Though the iPhone's display looks a tad muted, its colors are more true-to-life. The Nexus 6 is a good compromise. It has better color representation than the Note 4, but isn't as vibrant. It's more vivid than the iPhone, but its colors aren't as accurate. Bottom line: all of these devices deliver an engaging and expansive viewing experience.

    Software features: Oh lolli, lolli, lolli

    Android Lollipop addresses some known issues and adds a handful of new features; check out our report here.

    Living in a Material world

    Prior to the , Android introduced a completely redesigned interface called Material Design. Animated, playful and colorful, Material reaches just about every corner and crevice of Android -- from the dialer, to the notifications shade and even the hotkeys for back, home and overview (previously known as recent apps) have changed into simple geometric shapes.

    Animations are a big part of Material; nearly everything that you interact with via touch moves in some way. Sometimes it's a transparent gray shade that ripples outward with every tap or a small wave that moves as you drag your finger across the screen. When you launch the app drawer, its circular icon expands into a big rectangular window; and when you're at the unlock screen, texts zoom in and out.

    These animations make your Android handset seem very dynamic and almost alive. Some CNET editors like the effect, but others say that the animations appear to slow the device's performance.

    Another part of Material is cards. Notifications, the app drawer and text in many apps have their own designated card that's layered on top of the background. Calendar features whimsical, full-colored seasonally-themed backgrounds for each month, and can add relevant images to events using key words entered by users such as "dinner." These graphics pop up through a parallax scroll effect. You can turn them off if you want, but we found them quite charming.

    Notifications, overview and quick settings

    Notifications can be viewed on the lockscreen, similar to Apple iOS and Moto Alerts on Motorola devices. Tapping a notification will launch the relevant app; swiping dismisses it altogether. Users can also control how much information apps display, which is useful for sensitive emails and messages.

    Long-pressing a notification card in the menu shade reveals individual settings, but Google has included an "app notifications" master list inside the settings menu as well. Alerts for phone calls, alarms and texts may pop up while you're in the middle of a smartphone task; these are called "heads-up," and you can tap to launch or swipe to dismiss.

    Recent apps and multitasking capabilities, referred to as "overview," are activated by the square hotkey located at the bottom right of the display. Tap it and you'll see all the active apps that are running the background. Laid out like a stack of cards, overview also shows you multiple tasks within individual apps. With Gmail, for example, two overview cards appear if you have your inbox open while you're drafting a new message.

    Overview gives an informative preview of and context for recently-used apps, though they can add up quite quickly. The addition of multiple tabs per app also piles on more windows. It's unfortunate there is no "clear all" button that closes them all at once; a user must swipe or tap cards individually. The quick settings menu, accessible with a two-finger downward swipe at the top of the screen, features auto-rotate and Bluetooth toggles as well as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth toggles.

    Additional goodies

    Google's "Project Volta" initiative set out to improve battery life, giving developers more control over how their apps impact run time; the OS features a battery-saver mode that turns off background data and decreases the CPU clock speed when power reserves are running low.

    Lollipop lets users unlock their smartphone via Bluetooth. If the Nexus 6 detects a known Bluetooth device nearby, such as a Motorola Moto or LG G Watch , the phone will automatically unlock itself.

    The OS also features screen pinning, which restricts others to only one screen (like an app or game), and a guest mode, which lets others access the phone's Google apps, camera, messages, and dialer.

    If you're moving from another phone to the Nexus 6, Google makes it simple to migrate your apps, wallpapers and account settings; turn on NFC on both devices, tap the backs and wait until the handsets connect. The loading process takes only a few minutes depending on how much content you have on your old device, and makes the migrating process easy.

    Camera and video: Sharp shooting

    Take the Nexus 6's megapixel camera outside into the light and it will reward you with plenty of crisp, balanced images that rival those captured by other top phones. Lighter hues are bright and blacks are dark and vivid colors flood the eye, though whites bleached out in some scenarios and low light shots aren't as good as those taken by rival phones like the Microsoft Lumia.

    HDR mode may benefit some landscape environments, especially when combatting harsh sunlight angles, and indoor pictures are generally good quality. We found that the lens wouldn't always focus on extreme closeups, fuzzing around the edges. Front-facing photos taken with the 2-megapixel camera look good both indoors and out, producing faithful color representation and sufficient detail.

    Android Lollipop offers basic layout options and tools for the native camera including Panorama and HDR mode, a lens-blur feature, and photo sphere; and advanced menu gives you access to grid lines and manual exposure settings. Though you can't access filters and white balance presets in the default controls, the Photos gallery features a full set of tools including auto-editing, cropping, brightness, and saturation as well as filters, tilt-shift, and HDR Scape. One quibble: we wish the Photos app had a simple, clear way of separating photos from screenshots.

    Here's a sampling of the Nexus 6 image quality below. You can click images for full resolution, but be forewarned: they're large.

    The phone's UHD 4K default capture delivers high quality video. Color and sharpness is spot on, and the way the software adjusts to changes in the light is impressive. When 4K video files are too large for your needs, you can also drop down to p or, the minimum, p resolution.

    Similarly, the front-facing camera supports p HD, though you can downgrade to p or p for smaller, less sharp videos that are easier to share.

    Performance: Call quality

    We tested the Nexus 6 in our San Francisco office using T-Mobile's network. Call quality in both indoor and outdoor settings was great, with no calls dropped, consistent audio, and no buzzing or static. On our end, the call sounded clear with no distortion and adequate volume. We were told that we sounded clear on the other end, with no background noise even during a conversation conducted outdoors near a busy street and heavy construction.

    Podcast

    The audio speaker delivered quality similar to that of the in-ear speaker, though with a lower maximum volume; we could hear our calling partner clearly, though relatively softly, even when we cranked the volume all the way up. We also had to hold the device relatively close (no more than a foot and a half away) to hear the handset. This was surprising, since the phone has dual front-facing speakers grilles that play songs and video loudly.

    Data speeds, processing speed and battery life

    Data speeds on T-Mobile's LTE network are decent, and consistent with what we've seen before. (It's important to keep in mind that data speeds depend on a number of variables, such as location and time of day.) According to Ookla's speed test app, the Nexus' delivered an average rate of Mbps down and Mbps up; it also took about 2 minutes and 53 seconds for the MB game Temple Run 2 to download and install.

      The device took 10 seconds to download CNET's desktop site. Both the mobile and desktop site for the New York Times needed about 7 seconds to load, and ESPN's mobile and desktop site finished loading after 4 and 15 seconds, respectively.

      CNET desktop site load10 seconds
      Restart time1 minute and 16 seconds
      Camera boot time seconds

      Equipped with a Snapdragon processor, the phone is lightning fast with basic tasks like opening the app drawer, scrolling through Web pages, and navigating around the homescreen. In our tests, graphics-intensive games such as Riptide GP 2 and Kill Shot loaded in a reasonable amount of time and delivered high frame rates and smooth graphics.

      Benchmark diagnostics reflected the results of our hands on testing; this phone is powerful and holds its own against its rivals. Though the Galaxy Note 4 edged both the Nexus 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in our tests, the scores should be taken with a grain of salt, as manufacturers have been known to optimize their devices for benchmarking software.)

        The Nexus 6 turned in a very low score on our Quadrant benchmark, which was odd, given its competent performance in every other test. Its best multi-thread Linpack score was MFLOPS in second. On average, it took the phone about 1 minute and 16 seconds to power off and restart and seconds to launch the camera.

        The 3, mAh battery delivers an estimated hours of Internet browsing on Wi-Fi and 7 hours on LTE, with a reported talk time of up to 24 hours and a standby time of hours. In our battery drain test of continuous video playback, the phone lasted 11 hours and 56 minutes. Anecdotal observation showed that with moderate usage on LTE, with brightness cranked to the max, the phone still had 30 percent of its battery power at the end of the work day.

        With the included Turbo charger, the Nexus recharged a fully drained battery in 1 hour and 50 minutes. According to FCC radiation measurements, the device has a SAR rating on W/kg.

        Conclusion: Is it the right size for you?

        With the Nexus 6, Google increased the size of its flagship phone by a whole inch; it was a bold move. It took what had been a charmingly affordable handset and turned it into a big-ticket, big-screen phablet, expanding the Nexus line without advancing it all that much.

        For users looking for a big phone, a huge screen, and a pure Android experience, the Nexus 6 delivers with only a few minor drawbacks. Still, we prefer other comparable models. The iPhone 6 Plus is an elegantly crafted device with a fantastic camera and user-friendly OS. If you're loyal to Android, the Moto X is a good and less expensive alternative that's powerful, reliable, and highly customizable. Still, our favorite in the category remains the Note 4 . It has a slimmer design than the Nexus, a powerful processor that performs equally well, a suite of native productivity tools, and a powerful built-in S Pen stylus.
