Hey folks! I got a Nexus 6 yesterday (yes, i know I'm behind) from one of it's recent fire sales on Amazon. I'm coming from a Moto x 2014 and this is my first phablet. I thought I'd share some of my thoughts: -Im blown away by the aesthetics of this phone. I love it. I don't know what I was expecting but so many reviews harped on the sheer size of the device. Yes it's big but i don't feel like it's nearly as unwieldly as i was told to think it was. It feels thin but has a heft to it that i appreciate. - this phone screams for being a year old. android marshmellow is a total delight and doze is a champ. I fell asleep without charging last night and lost 3% of my battery. - Coming from a Moto device means giving up moto's mostly handy software; but not here. Between always on Google now, ambient display and double tapping power for the camera (who wants to double twist a device this big?) I haven't felt deprived yet. - My biggest complaints from the Moto x were the camera and the battery life. This camera is better by far. Unfortunately, the battery seems to be draining at the exact same rate as my X. I know new phones can take a while to adjust so I'll give it the benefit of the doubt. All in all I feel like a crook for getting this phone for $250. As far as software is concerned I do have some hopes and dreams. - Phablets are here to stay. I don't even know if we're still using that term. It used to be a word to describe a phone over 5.2" and that seems to be all phones nowadays. But where screen real estate is concerned, unless I'm watching a video on my phone i don't feel like I'm getting anything different from owning a 5" phone. I know that split screen for tablets is in the works for android N and I'm hoping for some more optimization if even just from googles apps. iOS definitely has some good ideas, like reachability. Other OEMs have had their go, too, but I'd love to see what Google could do for stock android. - Getting a new android phone is a HUGE pain. Before the Moto X I was an iOS user and getting a new phone was as simple as backing the old one up to iTunes and loading it onto the new one. It took me about 4 non-consecutive hours yesterday to manually move over texts, download my short list of apps, readjust my settings the way i like and login to all of my services. I'm honestly surprised there still isn't at least a third party option for making a single complete back-up that doesn't involve root access. What are your thoughts on what is to come from Android?
