Motorola’s bold and beautiful new Nexus 6 smartphone delivers the defining Google Android 5.0 (Lollipop) experience, providing users with a deeply customizable interface and seamless content sharing across Android devices. Add in a large and stunning screen, a superb camera and a bigger battery with an unbelievably quick charge time, and you might well be looking at your next phone.
Who doesn’t love a Lollipop?
Lollipop is Google’s most customizable operating system yet, allowing users to tweak a huge range of settings ranging from notifications to email. But its coolest feature may be how it connects all of your Android devices. Start watching a show, listening to a song or searching for something online on your Nexus 6, then pick up where you left off on your tablet. Clever is an understatement.
Like holding a window in your palm
The Nexus 6’s enormous six-inch Quad HD screen provides a big, beautiful window into all your digital activities. With a 2560x1440 resolution (that’s a shocking 493 pixels per inch), visual content bursts from the screen with lifelike detail and amazing clarity. Whether you’re watching a movie or reading an ebook, this is the screen on which you’ll want to do it.
From zero to six hours of battery life in just 15 minutes
The worst part about any phone is that it eventually runs out of juice. Nexus 6 does its best to combat the immutable laws of physics by including a bigger slab of lithium ion, capable of holding a 3220 mAh charge and speeding up the charging process when your battery is nearly depleted. It takes just 15 minutes to add six hours of operational time when your battery is deep in the red.
The only camera you need
Might as well just give away your point-and-shoot camera now, because you’ll never need it again. The Nexus 6’s rear camera is equipped with an f2.0 glass lens, optical stabilization to compensate for any jitters, and a 13-MP image sensor to capture film-like detail. Add in the ability to record 4K video at a rapidly flowing 30 frames per second, and you have all the picture-popping power you’re likely to need.
