    I haven´t followed the life of the Nexus 6 very much. What are it´s major problems other than size which is a very subjective problem?

    Camera?
    Performance?
    Screen?
    Battery?

    In a country (Mexico) where the current Nexus 6p is not going to be available for a few months, the N5X supposedly soon but via carriers, is an unlocked N6 still a good buy, since it is going for particularly cheap right now.

    Yes, it's still one of the best phones you can buy. I may keep mine for 2 more years.

    I like mine well enough, not really that interested in the 6p, never have been a real big fan of metal body phones even since they gave us HTC One's at work. I'll see what next year's Nexus is. The Nexus 6 has been a good phone for me anyway.

    At the $300 price it is a no brainer if a person wants a flagship phone. I always go for the best bang for the buck and in my opinion the Nexus 6 is king at this time.

    I just bought a second one. The camera is admittedly only acceptable, not great. And it's big. On the other hand, I spend a lot of time reading, and I use my phone for in-car nav, so the big screen comes in really handy, the speakers are fantastic.

    Thanks guys. How bad is the camera? I really want a phone that can take great pictures in reasonable conditions.

    All things considered, especially the current price, is the Nexus 6 still a good buy?-img_20151029_180402-2.jpg

    The camera is the best Android camera I have used. I know HTC cameras are better. But this is my best in 5 years of using Android devices.

    My only complaint about the Nexus 6 is that it is a bit slippery. That curved back was not a great design choice (then again. a flat back would have made a heavier device). I plan to keep mine through 2018. I am a Nexus customer for as long as Google sells them.

    That is a really good picture, camera phone or otherwise, that came out really good. Just out of curiosity, what city is that? Looks like my old home town, made me a little home sick

    That's a great picture. But HTC are not known to be particularly good. Samsung and LG cameras especially the last gen are the revered ones in the Android community.

    $300...Just do it! The camera is great...It's not the fastest, but when you take your time the turn out great. So basically it's the photographer.

    Oops sorry I didn't actually read your message. It's a great buy. Of course, for the 6p, just buy it through the Google store and have it sent through a proxy address

    Is that the direct from Google price? I think it is more at vzw store. Heck of a deal though.

    Google Store says starting at $499? Where is this offer?

    It was on eBay and a few other places. Pretty much everyone has it cheaper than the Google Store, they're still $350 on eBay mostly. Brand new and sealed.

    Got mine in the mail today and I'm loving it (primary device is a Note 5).

    Only problem is that I'm stuck on 5.1 (not even 5.1.1). I'll be patient though for now.

    Got a 32 GB model from Amazon for $349 last month. Totally worth the money. My only complaints are that (1) it could be just a bit narrower (like the Note 4 or the iPhone 6 Plus), and (2) the AMOLED screen is a little hard to see outside in the sun. I plan to keep it for at least two years.

    Had mine a month and overall it's the best phone I've owned.

    I've chopped and changed a lot in the last 12 months but I'm sticking with this one.
    Had 3 (yes, 3!) LG G3's that had hardware issues in the space of about 10 days so tried a Note 4.
    I was reasonably happy with that until Lollipop made it terrible, at which point I threw my toys out of the pram and bought an iPhone 6 Plus. Couldn't get on with that so here I am with a Nexus 6.

    Battery life was iffy to say the least until 6.0 came out but it lasts all day with no questions asked now.

    I get no lag, no crashes etc... 64GB gives me enough space to have anything I like on there.
    Great!

    The camera still leaves a little too be desired, but it's not *bad*. It's just not great either.
    If I've learnt anything in the past year it's that the perfect phone doesn't exist yet and it's a spectacular waste of time and money trying to find it.

    The ONLY problem I have with the phone is taking pictures in low light. It takes beautiful daylight or indoor pictures, but I struggle to get a decent concert photo. Its much better than my old Note 2, but not as good as I would like it to be.

    Everything else about the phone is excellent.
