This might be the worst thing about the Nexus 6

The Nexus 6 is a very good phone in many ways but, as we made clear in our review, it has a lot of flaws as well. To take one example, Business Insider has done a photo shootout between the Nexus 6, the iPhone 6 Plus and the Galaxy Note 4 and has found that the big Nexus’s camera is truly subpar in low-light situations.

How to boost Nexus 6 performance… and why you can’t do it just yet

Google’s recently released and hard-to-find Nexus 6 is likely the company’s best Nexus smartphone to date, but it can of course still be improved. In fact, when looking at storage performance, AnandTech discovered that because the Nexus 6 comes with full data encryption, its read and write memory performance has taken a significant hit. More →

AT&T finally begins shipping Nexus 6 preorders

Google’s new Nexus 6 smartphone was hotly anticipated this year, and Android fans were still blown away by the powerful new Nexus phone when it was finally unveiled. Unfortunately, getting your hands on the sleek new Motorola-built Nexus phablet isn’t as easy as it should be. Despite the fact that the phone launched some time ago, most Android enthusiasts eager to get their hands on Google’s latest available pure Android experience still don’t have their phones in hand — even if they were among the first to preorder the Nexus 6.

Thankfully, however, we’re now getting word that people who preordered the phone from AT&T, the nation’s top smartphone carrier, are finally seeing their new Nexus 6 handsets start to ship. More →

Nexus 6 Carrier Activation Issues

This might be the single most annoying thing about the Nexus 6… but there’s an easy fix

This might be the single most annoying thing about the Nexus 6… but there’s an easy fix

Nexus 6 units have already started shipping to early buyers, and while many of them may be using the huge Lollipop-running phablet as their daily driver, not all of them are so lucky. It looks like Google has found another way of messing up the Nexus 6 launch — in addition to only having a very limited number of Nexus 6 units to go around, thus preventing many from buying the handset — and that’s adding the phones’ unique IMEI codes to carrier databases, so that mobile operators can activate the Nexus 6 on their networks.

The Boy Genius Report: Nexus 6 review

By on November 12, 2014 at 1:00 PM.

Google’s tradition of releasing a brand new flagship Nexus phone every year isn’t stopping, and the company has come an incredibly long way since the original Nexus One. The latest iteration is the Nexus 6 with, yes, a gorgeous six-inch display. It’s manufactured by Motorola and was codenamed “Shamu” for a good reason — it’s monstrously huge and just feels like it’s going to slap you with its dorsal fin.

This is one of the most well-manufactured, technology-packed, volcano-luging, shark-diving phones I’ve ever used. But is it the best of the best or the best of the worst? More →
