Finally, the rumors have been confirmed and Google has reiterated its commitment to a curious way, and discreet, to present the new range of Nexus and Android L, which is this time called Lollipop. We have a new smartphone reference in Mountain View and his name is Nexus 6.
Rumors of its specifications, confirmation by CPU-Z and the last render of Evleaks have left little doubt resolved. Manufactured by Motorola, is an end stop range and offer powerful specifications comes stomping to become one of the best phones of the year.
The Nexus 6 is a full-fledged phablet and corroborate dimensions: 82.98 x 159.26 x 10.06mm with a weight of 184 grams. The design is reminiscent of the new Motorola Moto X although in this case adjusted to lengthen the lines and adjust the size of this terminal. Aluminum frame and a slight curve in the back cover for easy grip of a phone that is not made to take him around the world with one hand.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 had only been available to a few as Note 4 and now Nexus 6 joins this exclusive club. Four cores at 2.7 GHz speed to offer flawless performance with 3GB of RAM that promise to form a partner to aim high in the benchmark and provide a user experience to match. Perfect for moving these new animations at 60 frames per second.
On the screen we find a WQHD resolution (2560 x 1440 pixels) at 5.96 inches. A step forward that we saw first in LG G3 and left us in analyzing some doubts about its usefulness. On the panel we find AMOLED technology. Necessary or not many pixels, remains to be seen if this will be better appreciated in size.
Google and Motorola want to reinforce the shortcomings of the previous model to offer a round terminal in all specifications.
In the section we find 4G connectivity, Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy and WiFi connectivity and NFC. Nothing new in this. It will use microSIM card and this time it seems that Google and Motorola have forgotten to add a microSD slot for expanding the internal memory of the terminal.
To sustain such a combination of hardware, we have a 3,220 mAh battery that should hold a priori sufficient to provide a day of independence with guarantees. Recall that this point was one of the main shortcomings of the Nexus 5. Its 2300 mAh were somewhat fair.
The camera remains to be seen if there will be better quality sensor and processing software. 13 megapixel f / 2.0 on paper does not clarify much and considering that Motorola makes mobile photography experience and not It is the best in the industry, their performance is a question that will resolve in our analysis.
As is usual in the Nexus family, each device has released a new version of the Android operating system and in this case we find Android 5.0 Lollipop. In summer I teach thoroughly the main novelties: Material Design renewed interface, support for 64-bit processors, better battery management …
Changes from KitKat are important but also the transformation continuation started Google in version 4.4. A simpler look, with more transparency and a clean interface to prioritize information and make better use of gestures on the screen to call or hide menus.
