Earlier today, Google officially introduced the new variant of the Nexus family, the Nexus 6 which comes under Motorola; a respectable phone manufacturer especially in the US.  To make it special enough for the consumers, Google will make the most anticipated Android 5.0 Lollipop to come out of the box via the Motorola Nexus 6. Exciting isn’t it? Well, it is set to be priced at $649 which is equivalent to RM2139 if it is a direct conversion being made excluding whatever taxes will be implemented if Motorola decides to enter the Malaysian market.

The Google Nexus 6 or Motorola Nexus 6 comes with a gigantic Quad HD display ( 6-inch display ), this is definitely mouth – watering and I can bet it would be gorgeous as it is using the AMOLED display resulting in a pixel density of 493ppi. It is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 805, 3GB of RAM, 32GB or 64GB of ROM, 13MP main camera, 2MP selfie camera, front facing stereo speakers and a battery capacity of 3220mAh which is of course non – removable. Certainly it has CAT 6 LTE support, uses Nano SIM and as usual it has no micro SD card slot. My decent conclusion regarding the launch of Nexus 6 is that the impression of Nexus smartphones as the ” affordable ” is no longer applicable as Google is slowly changing it which is of course could be good in some way as they could go all out and bring out a super smartphone rather than having slight notches here and there.

Well in the end, it depends on personal preference. Would you prefer the latest Android OS with pure stock experience or Samsung’s TouchWiz that has more add-ons once Android Lollipop takes place as well. Both of these smartphones have pretty decent specifications with the outlook being extremely attractive as well. So, whats your take? The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 or the GoogleMoto Nexus 6? 😛
