    I've been switching back and forth between Android and iOS for the past 4 years now. I currently have an iPhone 6+ and before that was the original Moto X, which I loved. The only phones I'd consider making the switch again for would be the Style or a Nexus. Would the upcoming Style work on Sprint? I want a pure Android phone but, as of now, staying on Sprint is my only option.

    Awesome! I absolutely loved my OG Moto X. Mainly due to the Active Notifications but also because of how incredibly snappy the phone stayed after having it for about a year. It was also one of the few positive experiences I've had with an Android device.

    Yes. Once available in the US it will be called the "Moto X Pure Edition". If you nab that you can use it on Sprint.

    I would recommend going with a Nexus 6.I have one and its absolutely amazing.SInce you're switching from an iphone,you must be used to a lag free environment. Thats exactly what the Nexus offers.As for Sprint,it should work(do some research) as it has some really good radios.The reason I recommend this is also because of the screen size you're mostly used to.The iphone 6 plus and the Nexus 6 are roughly the same in physical dimensions except that the Nexus is a bit thick but thats due to the curved back.Much better display and .5 inches bigger too.If you're more into newer hardware and more customizeability then the Moto X Style is what you should get.But since it was newly released I seriously doubt it will be easily available.The Nexus 6 prices have also dropped significantly since a new Nexus 6 might be released soon.As for the Style working on Sprint,like I said before,Motorola usually has one of the best radios though you should still do some research.Hope this helps.

    The Nexus 6 is amazing. My Iphone 6 is gathering dust. Pure android, fast, battery lasts all day, wireless charging, camera, etc. You can't go wrong with the Nexus 6.

    After a year of the Nexus 6 being out, is it still fast? Do you notice any hang ups or lagging or force closes

    No lag whatsoever. Try it for a couple of weeks and bring it back if you don't like it, but you won't!!

    yea pure android experience is really the way to go. Nothing seems to ever slow it down and it runs for days.

    That's the only way I'd come back to Android. I have nothing against it. I'm not biased. But I do want a lag free experience for the life of the device. And when I say life o mean the at most 2 years I have it. Pure android is the only way I'd come back so the Moto X Pure Edition or the newest Nexus is what id likely go with

    The Moto X style is a great phone too BUT it has a different display than the Nexus 6.The older Moto X(2014) had an AMOLED Display but this year it comes with a TFT LCD Display which in my opinion is a bit outdated.They could've atleast used an IPS display but anyways it still has a Quad HD display.I've had my current Nexus 6 for about a week now but I did have an ASUS Nexus 7 2013 for about a year and according to my experience,it always stayed lag free but unfortunately the screen cracked so yeah but it still did survive some drops(face down ones too) though I don't think the Nexus 6 is the same.Techrax on youtube did a drop test and the face down one killed the N6 so you might wanna get a case(I recommend the RINGKE MAX).Nexus devices don't usually get slow like Samsung devices do(talking from some Galaxy Note experience).Good luck!

    Like I said before, The new Moto X doesn't have an AMOLED display which means it won't support active display as an LCD would require the whole display to turn on.It would be interesting to see what Motorola did with that and if it even works.

    It works on the new Moto G which doesn't have AMOLED....whether or not it's battery efficient is another story. But yes it'll have active display just like previous versions. I doubt they'd change if it hindered the product much.

    If you enjoy good camera performance, stay away from the N6 and just wait for this phone. It's literally the only reason I didn't go w/ the N6. Camera sucks. Like 10 steps down from the i6+

    No.It doesn't. Try looking at some sample pictures and videos and see if that changes your opinion.Although,it is true that older Nexus devices have been plagued with poor camera performance, the Nexus 6 is a huge step up. The camera is comparable with the note 4 and at least close to the iPhone 6 plus's camera,if not better.

    The camera on the Nexus 6 is pretty good but the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are still better. The new Moto X Style however is right up there now.

    Between the Nexus 6 and Moto x Style, I'd choose the the Style, because of the micro sd card slot. My only gripe is that it's rumored to not be available through carriers. Which means no verizon edge payments or anything like it. It works out ok if you aren't stuck in a contract or already paying for a phone through a carrier.

    My situation is that I'm eligible for an early edge at the end of August. But in order for me to be able to afford the Style not buying from a carrier, I'd need to pay off the phone either by one payment or keeping it till April when the phone is completely paid off and then I can sell it.

    What do you guys think about new nexus 5/6 will offer? I know Moro x 2015 and nexus 6 (2014) offers good performance but new nexus 5/6 is not too far from releasing it.

    I want to believe you very, very badly. I wanted the N6, I've used the N6 and the camera (specifically in low lights) isn't very good. Daylight, yeah, it's fine but that's the easy part.

    Total guesses imo right now. The last like 22 years they've been saying we're going to see multiple Nexus phones......and this year is no different. Sure, it could be possible. Esp considering how long they've been wrong about it. If you say enough diff stuff you're going to be right sometime.

    My best guess is it'll run Android version M, be between 5" and 6" screen size, and will not be made by Moto.

    Google is all over the map all the time so it's hard to predict what'll happen a lot. Last year was a shocker at $600 price tag and going through all the carriers. Did that work or did that fail? I'm guessing it wasn't a huge success but whether it was success enough idk.

    Either way....I'd say we'll prob know something for sure by Oct would be my guess. Kinda hoping they jump on the 'tell everyone about our stuff before the new iPhone launches' train. But we'll see.

    There might be two Nexus's released this year.The Nexus 5 and The Nexus 6.The N5 2015 might still be made by LG and there's a huge chance the N6 2015 might be made by Huawei.The reason I still chose the current gen Nexus 6 is due to the fact that the next Nexus's will most probably ship with a Snap Dragon 810 or rumoured 820.The 810 has overheating complains and I really want to stay away from that.The Snap Dragon 805 used in the Nexus 6 is quadcore,but it still performs good without a lot of overheating.

    That make sense but I can't justify paying over $500 for a nexus 6. Even LG 4 is under $500.

    That's the one thing holding me back from the Nexus 6, the price. I would have gotten the 5 but I was very happy happy with my Moto X. The price point was fantastic. I will say that if I could get the OnePlus 2 on Sprint, I might opt for that.

    I'm on Verizon... I too would love OPO or OP2 lol.

    Honestly though, the Style (assuming the camera is on point) might be the best phone for you judging by the small amount I know of you and assuming this phone only improves over previous models. I'm looking forward to switching back from my Note 4 if the phone lives up to preliminary expectations.
