So close, and yet so far. We’re finally in the home stretch, with Google’s brand new Nexus smartphone for 2014 now available to preorder. But for Android fans, these last few days until the phone finally starts shipping are going to feel like an eternity. The Motorola-built Nexus 6 is shaping up to be the sleekest and most powerful phablet the world has ever seen, and it continues the incredible roll Motorola is on right now. As we noted in our Droid Turbo review, Motorola has absolutely become the king of Android in the second half of 2014.
Of course, while you wait for the new Nexus 6 to finally hit store shelves, there is some good coverage out there to tide you over.
We have covered some solid Nexus 6 videos in the past, but a new one published on Wednesday afternoon is the best we’ve seen so far. Posted by well-known YouTube personality Marques Brownlee, the video gives Android fans the good old-fashioned unboxing and hands on experience they’ve been craving.
As a reminder, Google’s new Nexus 6 features a 6-inch quad HD display (2560×1440) with a pixel density of 498 pixels per inch, a 2.7GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a 13-megapixel rear camera, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, a 3,200 mAh battery and Android 5.0 Lollipop.
