    Just ordered a brand new in the box Nexus 6. I still have my iPad Air 2. I'm giddy!

    Make sure the warranty is good. I bought a "new" Nexus 6 a few months back and the warranty wasn't a full yr like the eBay claimed, so I got a refund. Be careful with the glue peeling off too. Personally, would've sprung for a LG G4 if you wanted a cheap flagship. Or a M9. The M9 was on sale recently for $250 through Best Buy.

    A 6 Plus. Not the 6s Plus though.

    Screen size is way too small. Same as the 6 Plus really.

    How are you finding the combination of iPad/Android phone?

    My phone won't be here until Monday so I went ahead and signed out of imessages everywhere. So unless I have something set up wrong, I can't use iMessages on my iMac now. It will receive but I can't send anything.

    6P would've been the best bet, but I hope you enjoy your Nexus 6 though.

    Not the OP, but I use a Moto X and an iPad Air 2 and I find it works great, but I use the Google ecosystem for everything and the cross platform compatibility works really well for me. I don't use a single Apple service.

    Not sure if you will like it since you're coming from the i6 but I hope you'll enjoy it.

    I did the same thing, rocked a Nexus 6 along my Air 2. I loved the phone but I had some big issues with screen burn in, cell connectivity weirdness, and general inconsistency. I'm back to my iPhone 6 though and I do miss a lot about my Nexus 6. Hopefully your experience will be great!

    Enjoy. I found the Nexus 6 to be just that bit too big tbh. It's very wide in the hand (more so than its height).

    I would recommend you get a d-brand skin for the back of the Nexus 6. Even though its polycarbonate, it attract finger print grease stains very quickly, and it's also quite slippy. A d-brand skin will give you a cleaner look and feel for $10.

    After having unlocked Nexus devices with updates directly from Google no thanks to bloated locked Android phones.
