3 ways Google can make the Nexus 6 the best Android phone ever

Google Nexus 6 Features

The Nexus 5 was one of 2013’s best Android phones and anticipation is already running high for what Google will do for an encore with the Nexus 6. Marques Brownlee has put together a terrific new video “wish list” of things that he wants to see Google incorporate into the Nexus 6 and his suggestions go far beyond the standard realm of better specifications.

First, Brownlee wants to see Google really focus on boosting its picture processing software in Android L, as he says that the Nexus 5 wasn’t all that great for picture taking even though it featured a solid 8-megapixel camera lens designed by Sony.

Second, he wants to see the Nexus 6 deliver some major improvements to battery life. Some of this can be accomplished simply by having Android L loaded onto the device, since Brownlee has found that his Nexus 5 runs for a much longer time just by using the beta of Android L than any version of Android 4.4 KitKat. Even so, he thinks a 2,800 mAh battery combined with the improvements to Android could make the Nexus 6 a real force to be reckoned with when it comes to offering users a long-lasting battery.

And finally, Brownlee would love to see a high-end graphics chip in the device so it can better take advantage of Android L’s sweet new animations that are baked into the platform.

Brownlee’s full video is worth watching and can be found below.
