Unleash the Nexus Monster – Nexus 6

Untitled-1

Its a Godzilla powered by the latest Dragon. The New Nexus mobile, Nexus 6 marks the completion of the transition of Nexus mobiles from being a developer’s experimental device to a completely consumer device. The Nexus 6 is manufactured by Motorola and it is huge. It is the first device in the world to be shipped with Android Lollipop.

As far as the specifications are concerned, this beast is powered by a 64 bit snapdragon 805 quad core processor clocked at 2.7 Ghz and has 32 GB/ 64 GB internal storage options. There is no slot to expand the memory. It has 3 GB of RAM and 3200 mAh battery which has Turbo charge feature giving it the ability to run for 6 hours with a 15 minute charge. The Nexus 6 has a 5.96 inch display with has the capability to house 2k resolution which makes the screen pixel density at ~500 ppi.

The Nexus 6 has dual speakers on the front, aluminium edges and ring flash at the back. The camera is a 13 mega pixel sensor with optical image stabilization. Traditionally the Nexus devices have been a developer’s handkit. Hence they were priced low and spec’d high. But with the Nexus 5 we saw that a Nexus device can also become hugely popular with the end consumers. So the Nexus 6 is purely a consumer targeted device. It also get a premium price tag. The starting price for a Nexus 6 is $649. The price in India is not yet announced, but it will be available in India by end of 2014, according to Motorola.

The bands supported in the international version are:
GSM: 850/900/1800/1900 MHz
WCDMA: Bands: 1/2/4/5/6/8/9/19
LTE: Bands: 1/3/5/7/8/9/19/20/28/41
CA DL: B3-B5, B3-B8

All that said, should you get this device? My gut feeling says no. It has a heavy price tag. It is a major bump from the Nexus 5 w.r.t. spec sheet. But I would still say the Nexus 5 has a far superior hardware design and ergonomics. Again it is just a gut feeling and it is subject to change once I experience a Nexus 6 up-close and personal.
