    So I've been very happy with my N6, but the screen cracked. I'm now trying to figure out if I want to repair it or replace it. I hate to sink the repair costs into a 2 year old phone when I could almost buy a new N6 for what they want. But then why put that money to an "old" phone.

    I really like the size and the front facing speakers, I think the 6p is an okay replacement but there are a lot of issues with the Pixel XL (size, bezels). So I started branching out my search for a true replacement in size and have come up with a couple of options but still wonder if I would miss the nexus updates if I decide to go with a non-nexus phone.

    So here is what I'm considering:

    Any opinions? Is there something else I should consider?

    I don't know if your in the US, but I have been looking at the Asus Zenfone 3 Deluxe, but there no where to be found in the US. I even emailed Asus US and they don't even know when they will be available. I'm still pretty content with my Nexus 6, you could probably find one in very good condition used for around $200, or around there. The 6p prices are still to high in my opinion for a discontinued phone.

    I am in the US, hadn't really looked to buy the zenfone just thought it was a contender.

    I was contemplating changing mainly for battery and camera lag both have which have improved since clearing the cache so will wait and see. The Samsung C9 pro may also be worth a look when it comes out later this month apparently.

    The C9 pro appears to be shipping 11/11 (in China) and looks interesting, but 1080 x 1920 pixels (~367 ppi pixel density) seems low by today's standards for a 6" phone (especially since the N6 that is 2 years old has higher resolution.

    I'm starting to think the Phab 2 Pro might be too big. I've used a Sony Xperian Z Ultra before and it always felt big and the Phab 2 is bigger. I really wish something like the Pixel XL had been an upgraded N6 with a 6" screen and small bezels and stereo front facing speakers......

    I just bought a N6 to replace a Note 4 whose screen broke. This phone might be two years old but it is one hell of a phone.

    No doubt that it is a great phone.

    The Moto x Pure, new for under $300 is really nice too. Picked one up for my son recently. He loves it

    The MXPE is a nice phone but I consider it more of a lateral move than a upgrade from the N6.

    I would agree that the MXPE is a lateral move, I would probably just buy a N6 for $200-250.

    I have a N6 that I cracked the screen on in July. Barely runs across the screen in the upper right corner. I have used a couple other phones since then(iPhone 6S+ & Moto Z).I ended up deciding to go back to my N6 and bought another N6 to keep the cracked one as a spare. I have a older plan on Verizon with 5 lines and I can get 2 new upgrades a year. I also used to do a lot of swapping and trading on Craigslist. Since 2010 when I got the original Motorola droid I have had 50+ smartphones. My Ñ6 has been the longest I have ever kept a phone and can't see myself getting rid of it.

    The first step is admitting that you have a problem.

    I consider the zen phones out of the running that software is questionable at best.

    Care to elaborate? I'm cooling on Asus phones anyway. I'm starting to lean toward the V20, but there is still a part of me that says just get a replacement N6 or a Nexus 6p.

    You aren't going to get software updates.

    If those rumors are true, I may be interested.

    My N6 is still going strong after 2 years but I am waiting to see if/when the Huawei Mate 9 comes to the US.
    Nearly the same screen size as the N6 but updated specs.
