Nexus 6, by far the most popular new ‘droid among TmoNews readers

DSCF9576_verge_super_wide

A couple of weeks back, I published a poll to see which of T-Mobile’s upcoming Android devices was the most exciting to our readers here on TmoNews. Giving you the choice between the Sony Xperia Z3, Galaxy Note 4 and the Nexus 6. And – surprising to me – the most popular by far was the Nexus 6.

Over 3,700 of you voted (huge thanks for that, you’re awesome), to help give a great overall picture of how you feel about the newly announced and released powerhouses. 45% of those votes went to the latest in a long run of Nexus devices. The huge, Android Lollipop-equipped device, built in partnership with Motorola. And while the Nexus 6 was some 600 votes clear of its nearest rival in the poll, the Note 4 and Z3 were only separated by 95 votes. Interest in Sony’s and Samsung’s latest smartphones is virtually equal with 26.2% and 28.76% of the votes going to the Xperia Z3 and Note 4 respectively.

Those of you who did vote, I’d love to hear what it is about each device that makes it so drool-worthy? What’s the big draw for the Nexus over the Note? Is it all about stock Android, or just being the first to use the impressive Android 5.0 operating system?

Side note: T-Mobile, you better make sure you have plenty of Nexuses (Nexii?) in stock.

    Here’s me hoping they have them in store for purchase on 11/12.

    • I’m ordering mine anyways because I want the 64GB…

      • John Johnson

        Same here.

        Hoping to Jump! my HTC M7 (I bought an M8 outright) but am actually using my Nexus 5 right now…(it’s running Lolli – couldn’t resist).

        The M7 is currently not in use on any line though – so I am not sure how that will work. I may still have to go in-store to have them take care of the Jump!/Ordering process.

        • LuvMusic

          I’m in a similar situation as you. Have a Z1s…which I love….but want to JUMP to a 64gb N6. Not sure how that is going to work.

        • JamesG

          As long as the IMEI of that phone is in the JUMP plan and eligible then its ok to JUMP. I have a Z1s as well and plan to JUMP to the Nexus 6 64gb

        • LuvMusic

          Thanks for the reply. Just wondering if I will be able to JUMP on-line, over the phone or if I will have to go into a TMo store?

        • thepanttherlady

          I don’t think the phone has to be in use on the line. When I checked my daughter’s line for JUMP! online, two phones showed up as being eligible and one hasn’t been in use for about a year.

        • Joshua Jones

          Yeah it happens all the time. I work for T-Mobile. In our jump system it will just show M7. No worries.

  • Paul Garrison

    i want this phone.

  • redman12

    Nexus 6 is out of stock on Google Play, I’m surprised that it selling like hot cakes based on high price range.

    • Paul

      They said the same thing about the iPhone 6(+) but the people want them!

    • JamesG

      Google play had hardly any stock for preorders. Most of the stock is going to the carriers

    • Cruise Guy

      Remember when the first Note came out, and everyone laughed and thought that no one would buy it. Well, this is bigger, and a solid product, so I believe it is surprising people just like the original Note did.

  • Qbancelli

    Just put the Nexus 5 on Craigslist, and updated my Google Wallet.

    I’m ready!

  • dc602

    Please don’t call it a “droid”. That’s Verizon’s marketing (brainwashing) in effect. :/

    • Verizonthunder

      I agree they paid LucasArts now Disney to use the trademark Droid.

    • Trevnerdio

      I just got on to my English professor today for saying that!

  • TMorob

    I chose the Note 4 because of the S Pen. To me a large phone is great but none of the others have the versatility the Note 4 has. Samsung did a great job with the Note 4 and it’s a great business device not just for entertainment purposes. I feel that everyone is being to hard on the touch-wiz interface it really doesn’t get in the way on this phone.

    • redman12

      I prefer stock Android because it gets the earliest update out of all Android phones.

    • Paul

      The S-Pen is a good reason I’m still with the Note series.

      I have no qualms with Touchwiz. What users don’t realize is that they can use any launcher from the play store.

      • kaw

        Just get a stylus they sell them everywhere.

        • Paul

          The Note series has a built in stylus compartment for easy carrying.

        • TMorob

          Samsung developed software that enhances the “stylus”, comparing a stylus to the S Pen is the exact same thing as comparing vanilla Android with touch wiz. There are basic functions that are similar but when you get deeper into it with Samsung’s software there are a lot more feature benefits.

    • Justin

      You are absolutely right. I like my Note 4 everyday. Plus I have also few coverage issues at my place or residence so T-Mobile Wifi Calling App is great help to address coverage issues as far as talking and texting goes. Nexus 6 is an unlocked phone therefore there is no Wifi Calling App. I love my S-Pen as well as many tricks that I can perform on Note 4 to get an awesome experience. I love my Note 4!

      • JiGSaW525

        FYI: T-Mobile WIFI calling will be enabled on the Nexus 6 in early 2015.

  • Chris

    Oh god please don’t call it a droid x_x I mean the apostrophe kind of saved you but still…

    On another note, I just called T-Mobile about an hour ago. I asked if I could order the Nexus 6. After putting me on hold for about 10 minutes, the lady came back and said “Sorry, we do not have any of the LG Nexus 6 for order. You should visit a T-Mobile store to check if they have any in stock for you.” I informed her that it was made by Motorola, and after about another 10 minute hold, she told me she didn’t have any info on it. Nice.

    • Chimphappyhour

      Yeah, visited a store yesterday to play with the Z3 and ask about the N6. They didn’t seem to think the N6 was coming to stores. Er, really?

  • JaswinderSinghJammu

    Yeah calling it Droid is an insult to Nexus line. I just want to be able to order and get one soon. Come on Google.

    • Qbancelli

      Yeah, you can tell the writer is an iPhone/Apple lover.

      • Not everyone who calls it that is an IOS lover. Some love the Microsoft mobile phones.

    • Deano80

      I hate when people refer to android phones as, “droids”!

      I’m a car guy and used to be big into the drag racing scene and absolutely hated when people would say, ” hey man, you got NOS”?

      First off its “nitrous” and NOS is a brand, but i do have a Nitrous Express kit!!!

      • JaswinderSinghJammu

        Just like Xerox copiers was the thing back in the day. Can you make me a Xerox copy? No we do not have Xerox copier but I can make you a copy on my Sharp copier.

    • Cam Bunton

      He.. I didn’t call it Droid. Apostrophe and missed capitalization were deliberate. ;-)

  • JaswinderSinghJammu

    I have the google. Com nexus page open at work and I keep hitting refresh in hopes for the page to change to order now..

  • james

    I have a LG g3 I can jump in January would u jump to this nexus or is there stuff conning up i don’t know about

    • Greg Victor

      I have a G3 too and I was thinking the same thing. Would it be better to jump to the nexus or wait for other high end phones to come out in 2015?

      • redman12

        Phones gets out of dated 6-12 months. It’s the same cycle, no point of waiting.

      • InfoS3c

        The longer you wait ,the less money you save by jumping. At some point it becomes more cost effective to sell it or trade in instead of jumping. The optimum time is when you have exactly 50% left on your EIP.

        • Greg Victor

          Damnint, i have 48.3% left on my EIP.

        • InfoS3c

          Hurry up and jump, damnint!

        • skywalkr2

          Thank god for old Jump and not worrying about this.

        • Cruise Guy

          There is Jump 1 and Jump 2. That works great for Jump 2. For the original program, you don’t have to pay off half the phone so the earlier the jump the better. Especially with zero down. I have paid less than $75 for my LG G3 and will jump to Nexus 6 and don’t have to pay off half thanks to the original Jump program.

      • james

        This LG g3 is so good that when I jump I want better I wonder how snapdragon 805processor runs way better I hope

  • Ordeith

    They probably liked the large gaudy nexus logo on the back. It gives nerd cred.

  • Verizonthunder

    I like my Sony Xperia Z3 the camera is nice, the battery life is impressive but the back is a no go as it scratches real easily but can be replaced easily thanks to Sonys design.

  • galaxyNote4isBoss

    I am more than happy with a true proven Worldwide product with industry leading productivity option and legendary features since 2011.

    All the Nexus 6 turned out to be is a fake wanna be phablet a big screened smartphone with no purpose or true multitasking/productivity.

    A straight out boring stock android featureless phablet with no future for sur

        I already know what I am. I’m someone who pays for the best year in and year out buying Galaxy Note products.

        I’m not some silly useless Nexus head or bargain basement price break group discount shopper that’s all nexus means price breaks.

        At the end of the day NEXUS sucks [Removed by moderator period.

        • Mirad77

          ” I already know what I am”. Splendid!

        • Jake Lamotta

          Will Samsung still make you pay $700 a year for your awesome phablet after you get married?

        • squiddy20

          “I already know what I am.” And would that include being a hypocritical loser? Because I can’t recall the amount of times you went on some stupid tirade about “faceless”, “fake” people simply because they didn’t have their real names as their user/screen names, nor did they have their real picture. And yet here you are, using what is possibly the most ridiculous picture of yourself and a name that is obviously not real. What happened Richard? Did enough sites ban this account http://disqus.com/yarrellray/ that you had to start over?

    • Mike Palomba

      Stock android is great. I’ve used it and compared to any skin, especially touch wiz, it’s far better.

  • Chris

    I have a G3 and I’m planning on jumping to a Nexus in January. I want the bigger screen.

  • Leaning toward the Nexus 6 because of updates and stock Android. Yes, you can use a different launcher on any other phone, but I really can’t stand the touchwized notification shade, not to mention the settings page of endless scrolling. And I’m a little worried of what a lollipoped touchwiz will look like. And I really really want front facing speakers.

    On the flip side, I’m not sold on the multi window stuff on a phone, but they do have that. And the mini-mode for one handed use. And the all important removable battery (mostly, if it dies 2yrs down the road, or just loses it’s oomph). And while I don’t *need* it, having a 128GB mSD card with all my music would be novel =P

    • Chris

      There’s a tabbed option of the settings menu on a Note as well as a search feature.
      Just saying if that’s what “keeps you from it”.

      • Nice to know. It’s just one of many little things that add up personally. The two biggest things for me are updates and the battery probably. And to a smaller extent, pricing. It’s $140 more (I want the Qi back).

    • D_Wall__

      As a Note 4 user coming from the Nexus 5. I am excited about the Nexus 6. The Note 4 is great, really is, But its too much. I hate that i cant block certain apps, Settings Menu is overwhelming, Notification drop down is ugly, Touchwiz is decent but pure Android will be the only way i live moving forward after owning the N5. Wireless charging is a big deal to me too.

      • Granted you’re switching, the Qi back is supposedly only $40.

        • D_Wall__

          I am aware, Thats not the biggest turn off. Its the bloat ware, Touchwiz, Over abundance of useless to me features. I dont even use the S-Pen..

        • skywalkr2

          That exactly why I skipped N4. I have the N3 and never use any of the bloatware and the Spen is mostly a toy that I don’t play with.

  • kev2684

    i hate when people call any android phones “droid.” damn verizon.

    • fechhelm

      Also my pet peeve. The Nexus 6 is not a droid, nor is any phone on T-Mobile. For that matter neither is any phone on AT&T, or Sprint. Why is this so hard for people to figure this out.

      • InfoS3c

        Droid is a Disney/Lucasarts (Star Wars) trademarked abbreviation of the word “Android”. By definition, ALL robots/androids are “‘droids”. The abbreviation just cannot be used for branding and trade in WIPO countries. However, in vernacular usage and conversationlike here it is fine – just like Ziploc bags and saran wrap.

        • fechhelm

          LucasFilms owns the trademark but Verizon pays them a licensing fee to use the word “droid”. So if the phone isn’t a Verizon phone it is not a “droid”.

        • InfoS3c

          No, Verizon pays Disney to BRAND their phones “Droids”. They (androids) are all droids and have been since ’78.

    • 21stNow

      I don’t like it either, but Cam did use the apostrophe to show that he was abbreviating a word. He isn’t misusing the licensed term “DROID” to describe the Nexus 6.

      • Dan

        Nice reply, you just beat me to it.

  • Jesslyn Hendrix

    I’m with Chris, but hope that the Nexus 6 is available before January. I’m ditching a Note 3 for a big screen with stock Android! I’ve been using Lollipop on a Nexus 5 and Mr. galaxyNote4 should probably have kept that comment until he sees Android 5.

    If on a Note, it’ll probably be 6 months down the line, but Google out did themselves on the new OS. Great job.

    • JamesG

      The nexus comes out Nov 12th….

  • Chris

    Thinking of Z3 or whatever htc comes up in January.

    • Mike

      I got the Z3….I have been using for about a week now and I am liking it a lot. But what I dislike is that when a text message arrives the screen stays in hibernation mode. I must tap the screen, unlock, and swipe the notification bar to see the text. Most other notifications I’m less concerned that I must drill in to see.

      • Verizonthunder

        I like it too but the back cover scratches too easily.

        • Mike Palomba

          Invisible shield makes great back protectors. I’ve had one on my iPhone since I got it

        • Verizonthunder

          No thanks I like mine nude and the adhesive for the protector will not handle water. Besides its easily repairable.

      • AK

        Isn’t there an option to add Hangouts notifications on the lock screen? If so, you can enable SMS messaging through Hangouts. It will only let you see a couple lines of the message and will still need to unlock to see the rest of it.

      • neospade44

        Can’t you double tap the screen to wake and drop down the notification to view text and select it there? There’s that way.

        • Verizonthunder

          Yes but to respond quickly no and do not care for hangout either. Maybe 5.0 lollipop will address it.

        • Mike

          Um. That’s what I said I had to do and don’t like doing it.

      • Mike Palomba

        There might be an option to fix that in messaging settings or maybe in display settings

        • Mike

          I have been unable to find a fix.

  • Art Faucett

    I had a huge Morortola brick back in the day, then they started to get smaller, so I jumped on the Nokia 5 and 8 series, then the “star” flip phone. Then bigger and smaller, then bigger and thinner. Where does it stop? In a few years, I think there will be versions of the Nexus 6 that are slightly thicker, but flip open to twice the current size. Phablet flip phone?

  • Zander

    I don’t give two shits about stock android, coming from a note 2 I was gonna get a note 4 but the nexus swayed me with front facing stereo speakers and water resistance.

    • D_Wall__

      I dont believe its waterproof…

      • Zander

        I know its not waterproof, its water resistant. At least that’s what motos website says.

    • skywalkr2

      You will change your mind about stock when you finally enjoy it…. its inevitable.

      • Zander

        That is possible, but I’m more of a hardware guy not a software guy with that being said my 2 year old note 2 is getting long in the tooth. I suppose having 1K plus pictures doesn’t help but it sure takes a while to open the gallery. I switch between 4 different games, Spotify, browser and messenging apps all the time.

  • Deadeye37

    I’m really interested in the Z3, but my question is whether or not I can eventually root the phone and get a new ROM on it. I like to keep the phone running whatever the manufacturer put on it for 12-18 months, but then I like to root & ROM it so that I can get some new life on my phone. It keeps me from spending money too fast :)

  • mrpickem

    N6 just an oversized Droid Turbo. Not a fan of Touch Wiz but Note 4 still my top choice!

    • JamesG

      Its nothing like the Droid Turbo. Its more like and oversized Moto X

      • skywalkr2

        And since the Turbo is only on Verizon – who gives a crap.

      • monkeybutts

        The specs are Droid Turbo, design is Moto X.

        • Durandal_1707

          Except for the Droid Turbo’s giant battery.

          You’d think with the Nexus 6’s huge size, they could have fit the larger battery in there, but no…

    • Maximus

      The Droid Turbo will take that as a compliment :)

  • D_Wall__

    I will gladly hand over my Note 4 for this… Cant wait…

    • skywalkr2

      The reason I didn’t jump from Note 3 to 4 was this phone. Then after this… not sure if I will keep Jump or not. We will see. This phone has everything I’ve wanted in a phone for years.

  • AK

    Cam, you should have included one more option in the poll: “None of the above”.

    • david

      It does have that option. It’s called “not voting”.

      • Dwayne_Chapman

        So it measures how many vote for that? No.

        • JamesG

          It doesnt need to be measured, the poll isnt for you

      • zx6guy

        That measures nothing.

    • Cam Bunton

      I could have, but that doesn’t help answer the question.

      • AK

        Cam, your question was (you actually asked two questions rolled into one): Which are you most excited by? And which are you going to hand over your hard-earned cash for?

        I am curious to see how many people are not excited by any of these three phones.

  • This would really change when the poll is open to non geeky people. A lot of my friends and family have never even heard about the Nexus 6. And makes me mad when they choose the iPhone 6 plus or the Note 4 as the only one they want to buy as the bigger phones.

    • Rose Yvette Mosher

      I personally opted into getting the Note 4 over the Nexus 6 for my second JUMP of the year. And I can honestly say I couldn’t be happier. I’m not really a fan of onscreen touch buttons. I was hoping the Moto Maxx would fill my want’s, however it is not coming to T-Mobile.

      • Aaron C

        As a piece of hardware, I love the Note 4. However, TouchWiz for me made me want to hurt small animals. I had a Note 2 for about a month, just for the WiFi calling. Never again.

    • JamesG

      Marketing has done its job. Most only think Samsung and Apple are the only phone manufactures

      • TMorob

        Interesting that you think that, the fact the it has no removable battery or an extra Micro SD slot makes it an Android version of the I Phone….I could have mentioned this before as one of my reason’s for choosing Samsung, usually most choose a high end device because they want the latest specs.

        • JamesG

          Not everyone cares about removable battery or SD card slot. Most will choose just because others picked it or marketing….

        • Mike Thaler

          I’ve never seen anyone denigrate any phone and refuse to buy it sole because it has a removable battery or an SD card. Plenty of us do avoid phones with those “defects” in design.

    • Orion

      And?

  • Jason Madura

    Dual FRONT FACING speakers (cuz who loves watching a show and barely hearing the quiet scenes with the sound coming from the back or bottom of the phone), stock Android Lollipop with no bloatware from Manufacturer or carrier (buy from carrier and you’re literally getting double the bloatware), large screen and large battery, great camera…. They definitely did this one right….

  • darminiam

    I would pick the Nexus 6 if only it had a microSD slot. But since it doesn’t (and it’s price compared to the Note 4), I decided to go with the Note 4. Now if only they would stop being backordered. It’s been almost 3 weeks now since I ordered it.

    • FILA

      People really need to stop with this SD card shit on Nexus devices. Google is never going back, they said it themselves, so stop bitching about it. You really fill over 64GB?

    • Philly Jim

      Every here of a usb otg I use one on my nexus 5 and one on my nexus got them on eBay for 5$ each put whatever sd card you want in it plug it in to your charging port and Bam you have all the storage you want there about the size of a nickel I don’t care if a phone or tablet only has 16gb of storage as long as it will recognize otg I’m good, once you use one you’ll never look back, sane as a Meenova just cheaper and better

  • Jason Crumbley

    Will T-Mobile at least be offering the white version of the Nexus 6 online? I really can’t stand the blue color.

    • JamesG

      Only blue but i have hope for the White as well

    • Brad

      You can finance it through motorola if that’s a dealbreaker… i think it’d come out exactly the same price-wise.

  • Deswaga

    I’ve had my experience with the galaxy family (3 and Note 2) bloatware was a turn off. Since moving to nexus 5, 2 hard pills to swallow were non removable battery and no sd slot. I have since swallowed those pills, after using cloud based apps and being conservative with my battery by optimizing all available secrets to extending battery life!! Cant wait to JUMP to the Nexus 6!!! FYI, English and typing were not my best subjects….lol.

  • AAAA

    He wasn’t bitching about it, he was expressing his reason for choosing the Note 4. Yeah, people use more than 64GB, that’s why 128GB microSD cards exist, which is what I have in my S4.

    People should stop bitching about people wanting options.

  • Mystery Man

    • james

      I thought about that but I have identical phone as far as specs so not sure

      • Yos

        I have the HTC M8, and the LG G3. I enjoy this phone more.

        A- Better Camera, shots fast, images are real nice
        B- It’s fast. the other phones, esp the G3 is getting bogged down
        C- WaterProof. Friend called, “hey, I have have waterproof phone, guess where I am” Click. #winner
        D- It’s design is perfect, the rounded edges, it’s a real nice width, wider and I can’t use it one handed.
        E- Front Firing Speakers
        F- Great battery life
        G- Magnetic charger so you don’t have to lift the waterproof flap.

        Hope this helps.

    Please never use the words Nexus and Droid in the same sentence again… It makes me want to stab my eye out.

  • UralBas

    Droid is verizon. It has BING on it.

    Nexus is true Google. Who really cares for a Droid device? I don’t!

  • NotThisYearGoogle

    I hate how google think they are Apple now and jacked up the price to same level as apples phone. They were known for being affordable now they just pulled the switch, alot of people will say nexus 6 is way better then iphone 6. i hear you and at some extent ill agree, but the value of android decrease dramatically, and no ill not pay $600 for N6 ill rather pay that for Iphone 6

      Google is nothing like Apple. At least Google has a justification for the increased price! Also Nexus has never been known to be the affordable phone. Do you think the Nexus 4 and 5 were the only Nexus phones??

    • TechHog

      So, you’re an Apple fanboy. Okay. Good for you.

      Samsung demanded Google to increase price for nexus in order for Samsung to produce less tizen based phone.

      Cheaper Nexus were hurting galaxy sales badly and Samsung was seriously considering making tizen their first priority instead of android .

        Where did you get this information

    • Powsniffer0110

      Well……. Since the iPhone 6+ with 32GB of storage, which is the comparsble phone to the Nexus 6, you’re paying $800+ for the unlocked device. Don’t understand your logic, even tho I agree it is too much.

      At first I was put off by the price, but now I see that the phone is easily worth the $650. I think Google got tired of the compromises that had to be made in order to sell an unlocked phone for $400. I’ve owned an N5 for about eight months, and will be getting a N6 on the 12th. As for Apple, there isn’t a 32GB iPhone 6+ and the 16GB is $100 more than the N6. Price seems very reasonable, even compared to the GN4.

    What’s the scuttlebutt on T-Mobile carrying the white N6?

    Stock Android 5.0, Big AMOLED screen, front-facing stereo speakers, huge battery, wireless and fast charging

  • BL4Z3D247

    Vanilla Android Lollipop, gets updates quicker that non-Nexus devices, HUGE 6″ AMOLED screen(2k res) packed into as small of a body as possible(not much bigger than iPhone 6+ or even the Note 4), Motorola build quality(which is superb IMO), dual front facing speakers, price still undercuts other premium flagships, unlockable bootloader which means custom kernels which means OCing(and a couple other things you need a custom kernel for). I do wish Tmo was getting the Cloud White model though, sigh. I’m not really feeling the Midnight Blue, looks kind of purply to me.

  • CrzyP

    I would totally be down for this phone, but I think it’s just too big for my tastes.

  • Guest

    Why can’t I get a Large Screen (5.5+), Front Facing Speakers, AND removable battery / storage?

    Is it REALLY that much to ask?

    I don’t care about waterproof…

  • I use my phone for calling maybe 1% of the time. The other 99% is for messaging, email, video, internet, games, and other apps. Therefore I want a huge screen in my pocket that can make calls in the off chance I need to make one. Nexus 6 baby!

    • djinn123

      Same here, I rarely use my phone to make actual phone calls!

    • David

      I wish I had friends to call me

  • Nevsky2

    I will stick to the OnePlus at half the price with CyanogenMod

  • Steve

    $650 is reasonable assuming you keep the phone for a full 2 years. Spending $370 every 15 months for a Nexus 3, then Nexus 4, then Nexus 5, only to want the next phone comes out to the same price or much more.

    If your one of those that gets a new phone every year, you better hope you can get $350 for this phone on ebay after it being a year old and used.

    I’m just tired of Samsung phones. Software is boring and plan. I had a note 3 and I always used a launcher because I just didn’t like Samsungs. Design of the phones are good. Nexus and Sony to me have great design, software, build quality. At this time I’m using the LG G3 and I am enjoying this phone a lot. But now I’m really thinking that the Nexus might be my next phone.

  • skywalkr2

    As of today my local TMO store still has not received shipment of these. So who knows if they will actually be in stores for purchase on 11/12.

  • thatuptowncat37

    I hate the “droid” nick name and verizon with a passion. I can only hope that Tmobile does NOT acquire it in any way shape or form!!!
