It's 0.7 mm thicker than a Note 2, at its thickest point. Like a Note 2 with an ultra slim case on it. But much slimmer than the Note 2 towards the sides. That's honestly not that thick. It's everything else that has become insanely thin.

Aside from the thickness, it's a very large screen with a small form factor. I'm really digging it and I can't wait to get mine!

I'm interested to see what it feels like in the hand. It's only thick in the center and it's very similar to the thickness of the Moto X which most everyone says feels nice in the hand.

. it's less than 2mm thicker than the nexus 5 and 4mm less than my first Android phone. I have a feeling the shape of the phone will make it easier to hold if anything but what do I know,

I love the clean menacing black look of the Nexus 6 and the dual front facing speakers. But when he showed the screens side by side I could already tell that the Nexus 6 has washed up colors under sunlight. For me the display is very important because it's the primary thing you interact with in a smartphone. When I compare my Note 3 to the iPhone 6 plus I could tell right off the bat that iPhone had the better screen. And the Note 4 has a better screen than the iPhone 6 plus.
That 10 second outdoor screen comparision made me stick to getting the Note 4 as a daily driver.

They both have AMOLED but I have no doubt Samsung keeps the better screens for themselves. Also we have no idea of brightness settings, and this was a pre release Nexus 6.

Look at the video at the 40 second mark soon after he pulls down the notification shade. Both are running 100% brightness. Sad part is that the Note 4 is capable of going even brighter if Auto is selected.

N6 looking great. About as tall and wide as i imagined and not as thick as i thought it would be. Definitely pocket-able which all that matters.

The only question is do i buy a case? or at least one that does not add much to the overall thickness of the device.
