Some fancy new Motorola smartphones, a bigger and better LG G4, and Samsung’s Galaxy Note 5 are all coming later this year, not to mention a new iPhone 6s Plus, but that doesn’t mean the Nexus 6 isn’t worth considering. In fact, there are multiple reasons we think all users will love Google’s big Nexus 6 smartphone.
Last year in October Google officially announced Android 5.0 Lollipop running on a few Nexus devices. Those being the Nexus 6, a new Nexus 9 tablet, and even a Nexus Player for our TVs. In November the Nexus 6 finally hit shelves around the globe and then all five major US carriers, a first for any Nexus in a long time, including Verizon Wireless.

With the Nexus 6 Google completely changed the “Nexus” program. No longer was it a upper mid-range device with just enough to almost compete with flagship devices, but at a lower cost. Instead they tossed everything imaginable inside this huge 5.96-inch smartphone, and released it for a big $649 price tag. Read on for why we think that even though it’s pricey, it’s a great smartphone.
As the summer of 2015 is coming to a close there are tons of excellent smartphones available to buyers, and more coming soon. Options like the Galaxy S6, the big LG G4, and even the upcoming Galaxy Note 5 with a massive 5.7-inch display slightly smaller than Google’s Nexus 6.
Motorola has multiple new devices in the works, reportedly a new 5.5-inch Moto X, and we’re even hearing this year Google will release two Nexus smartphones. One Nexus 5 (2015) with a 5.2-inch screen made by LG, and a bigger Nexus 6 replacement made by Huawei, but with a smaller 5.7-inch Quad-HD display.
And while all the devices we just mentioned above sound like great smartphones, most of them aren’t available yet, and won’t be on store shelves for a few more months, with an exception of the Moto X which will be announced on July 28th. With that in mind, many buyers may be looking for a phone right now, and here’s 11 reasons the Nexus 6 is a great choice with tons of features buyers will love.
