    Hi,
    Nexus 6 is not only Google's first plus-sized phone, it's one of the biggest phones you can buy period. It's larger than 5.7-inch Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus.

    Hmm....for a battery that big, i'm disappointed. Correct me if I'm wrong but doesn't the iphone 6 plus has better battery life when compared to the nexus 6? :/

    It does and so does the Note 4. But the Note 4 and the Nexus 6 do charge way quicker to 100% then the iPhone 6/6+. In 15 minutes the Nexus 6 was charged from 5% battery to 50% or 60%. Both the Nexus 6 and the Note 4 take around 90 minutes to get to 100%

    Did you have your screen set to a fixed brightness (and if so, what %), or to auto? It looks like your experience wasn't far from what a lot of the reviews have been indicating. The battery may not be extraordinary, but it should be sufficient to get the vast majority of users through a long day (16 hours in your case) without a boost - certainly better than the Nexus 5 has done, to date.

    I had my screen brightness set sometimes at 25% or 50% and if I watched a video then at 100%. But I usually had the screen set at 25% or 50%, the phone never was on auto. I started charging my phone right after I posted those pics and it took the phone 15 minutes to get it from 5% to around 60% which is pretty impressive in my opinion.

    Thanks - good to know. As to the charging, you were at the state of deep discharge that really lets the turbo charging shine. Of course, in the long run it's best not to let the phone drop that deep if you can avoid it, but good to know that when circumstances don't leave another option you can give it a strong 'second wind' pretty quickly.

    Why not to let the battery drop to 5%? :/ Is it because it will affect the longevity of the battery?

    That is correct. Ideally you want to operate your phone above 10-20%. There was a post (I can't find it) that explained Li+ polymer breaks down, especially near full discharge. That breakdown reduces the overall capacity of the battery.

    Battery Univerisity gives a great description if you want to nerd out on battery life.

    I'm testing an iPhone 6 plus and here's first day with it. If the usage time is screen on time (i definitely was on it for many hours so it seems right) then that means I got almost double battery life as user above with his battery life results. :/

    As a side note I had screen set to auto brightness. I left Wi-Fi on all day (but was connected to it once I got around 20%).

    I notice that most shots [not just here, but other places too] have that white google band on all the home screens. Can that be taken off if I don't want it there. I believe ok google can still be launched without it by pulling up or swiping the screen to the right.

    I don't have the N6 yet, but according to this, it gets better battery life than the iPhone 6+: Our Google Nexus 6 battery life test is complete, phablet lags behind the Note 4

    I'd like to know as well. If it can't I'll most likely stick with using Nova Launcher.

    It can't be removed on the stock launcher, but you can use Nova launcher like you said. With that launcher you can still enable the ok Google hot word also.

    I may try the stock launcher at first. It depends on how it looks with my widgets. With a screen this big it may not be so bad, but I have to see for myself.

    What I don't like about the persistent Google search at the top is it looks weird to me, with my widgets and takes away from the look. It's like Google has installed their own form of bloatware that can't be removed, unless you use a different launcher.

    I agree! I like my widget setup the way that it is now! For fun.... Here's my setup on my S4:

    I'd like to be able to have something similar on the N6 when it arrives. As you can see, I currently have a countdown widget until my scheduled delivery date from Motorola :]

    Cant be removed. You'll need to use a different launcher like Nova if you don't want to have the "google bar".
