Nexus 6 review

0
Nexus 6

The Nexus 6 is a really big Moto X, minus most of the good Moto X bits

How much does Google's new Nexus 6 — manufactured by Motorola and a spitting image of the 2014 Moto X — have in common with its more diminutive cousin? I found that out the hard way, trying to pull the SIM card out of my Moto X and swapping it into what for us phone nerds (to say nothing of editors of Android websites) is one of the biggest releases of the year. And this was happening at 75 mph, somewhere on the New Jersey turnpike, in the back of an Uber, headed to Newark Liberty International Airport, with the clock ticking not just on my flight, but for my initial hands-on with the Nexus 6.

Not the first time I've done that, by the way.

And of course one of the SIM trays falls out of my lap and onto the floor of the car. I wasn't sure which tray I picked up. Turns out it didn't matter. You can put a Moto X SIM tray inside the Nexus 6. (And more important is that you can get it back out again.)

Was that a sign of things to come? Or just dumb coincidence? A little both, really.

But mostly it was an amusing start to a new era with a new Nexus, Android 5.0 Lollipop and Material Design. And here, now, is the Android Central review of the Nexus 6, Google's baby, birthed by Motorola.

Android 5.0 Lollipop Nexus factory images are live — here's how to update!

New Android 5.0 Lollipop factory images for the Nexus 5, 7, 10 and 9

Android 5.0 Lollipop is upon us! The Nexus 9 tablet tablet has been on sale for a good while, but today the first Lollipop updates have started to become available for Nexus devices in the form of factory images. At the time of writing we're seeing Lollipop factory images for the Nexus 5, Nexus 7 (Wifi-only, 2013 + 2014 models) and Nexus 10 over on the Android Developers site. There's also an updated build for the Nexus 9 — LRX21Q.

As always, Android 5.0 updates will filter to Nexus and Google Play edition devices automatically in the coming weeks for those who don't manually update.

However if you don't want to wait to update your Nexus phone or tablet, the good news is that manually updating your device is relatively easy. All you'll need is your Nexus, an unlocked bootloader, a little bit of command line knowledge. We'll walk you through the process after the break.
