    Big change, your other post was glowing over the Note

    "and best of all the nexus 6 are the 1st ones too get the new android 6 too where the note 5 it would have took at lest a year"


    Samsung or Att has said this? I doubt it

    Least you know you will get dependable updates with google. Enjoy it. I can understand why updates are important. Updates is important to a lot of people. Sadly on non google or IOS devices it can take ages for updates.

    Enjoy ... It's a very speedy phone, I'd recommend you might want to consider a dbrand skin for the back of it. They make excellent matte textured ones that hide fingerprints, and make it a lot less slippy and gripable.

    I find cases make the girth of the Nexus 6 too much so a d-brand skin will give you some protection on back and a screen protector on front means you can enjoy the device protected but without adding additional bulk.

    Not relevant to topic but,

    I wish one plus or some other smartphone maker would give us factory images with unlockable boot loaders so i don't have to worry about bricks or wiped devices and can flash till i drop.

    Nexus is great but, really has some crappy cameras (nexus 6 has terrible focusing) and always some hardware flaw like touchscreen issues (nexus 7), bad screens, (galaxy nexus) vibrate too loud on nexus 6 etc.

    I believe htc gives out what they call a ruu
    but nobody matches nexus images, binaries, and documentation

    OnePlus does provide factory images and they don't require any special software to unlock (beyond the drivers).

    Enjoy your new beast man :)

    With rumors stating the next Nexus may feature a Snapdragon 810, the 2014 Nexus 6 is makes more sense.

    That's my issue with the N6 as well, it's really thick and just makes for a huge lump in your pocket.
