    I think people are divided on this. I have a Note 4, and personally, I'd like a smaller phone (the S6 would be fine, for example). Different people, different use cases, etc.

    I've had the Nexus 6 for almost a week. Came from a Nexus 4 and S4 and couldn't pass up that $350 Amazon deal despite probably getting the Hauwei Nexus in a month or so.

    I wanted a larger display, and this definitely fits the bill. Took a little over 48 hours to get used to, and now I can't imagine going back to something smaller than 5.7" ... also the front speakers are clutch, definitely a must moving forward!
    Similar...got the Nexus 6 on sale about ten days ago. Took a bit to get used to the big screen, even after having the Note 3 for 18 months. Just opened up the XPE box and this thing seems tiny. I do like the smaller footprint for carrying around but hopefully I get used to the narrower screen.

    One of the most popular phones sold last year had a 4.7 in screen. The same is expected for this year. For those of us who want a flagship Android phone but not a "phablet", what options do we currently have?
    What phone at 4.7 was the most sold. Everything was 5 or bigger.....

    I believe they're referring to the iPhone.

    Sony Z3 compact was one of the best selling phones in Japan. I don't know of any phones in the US market with a ton of sales under 5.2".

    Returning mine as well. Not because of size, but for several other issues. First and foremost, it just feels so clumsy to operate after having become used to the simplicity of the LG4 , S6 Edge Plus+ and iPhones. Oh well, I gave it a shot.

    Sangs,
    Can you give us an example or examples of something you found complex on the PureEdition versus the same function on the LG G4, etc? I'm still on the fence, and would like to hear the dissenting views.

    Sure, but don't attack me for having dissenting views. These are my personal observations, won't apply to everybody.

    -- Would appear I do not like stock Android;
    -- The camera is sub-par. Camera operation especially;
    -- Turns out that I've become very reliant on a finger print sensor and not having one had me pulling my hair out;
    -- No wireless charging;
    -- The screen, compared to the S6 Edge Plus+ was like going from Blu-Ray to a standard DVD;
    -- Seemed like an inordinate amount of button pushing was required to do things I could do much more easily on other phones;
    -- This is not really a big deal, but it became MUCH warmer than my other phones;
    -- The included charger is only one piece, you cannot swap cables;
    -- Stylishly, the two raised horizontal lines on the front annoyed me; (What is the purpose of those exactly? I thought they'd have a function.)
    -- The rear grippy material did not feel like it would hold up for very long.

    These may all seem minor to some, but they weren't to me. I really wanted to like it as I have fond memories of my first Moto phones. Oh well.

    I don't want to repeat everything I said above, so I hope that post helps. For the record, I did not keep the LG G4s that I tried because of lagginess, but they were much simpler to use in many facets.

    All valid points.
    As far as the raised lines, I believe that's to protect the screen when you lay it face down...but not 100% sure.

    Yeah this is one of the things I think will bother me. Going back to a device without a fingerprint sensor will probably result in me having my device always unlocked just to avoid the inconvenience of using a pin/password or pattern unlock.

    I know it seems trivial, but I spent a lot of time placing my finger on the thing and getting pissed off once I remembered I had to enter a code instead.

    Yeah the iPhone has a 4.7 inch screen, but due to its large bezels it is bigger than 5 in devices.

    One of the most disappointment is battery life. I had moto x pure since last Friday and battery life seems to be worst than my s6. I have almost identical set up with same apps.

    I was getting really worried about the size right up until the moment the phone arrived and then when I opened the box I said, "Actually this isn't that bad." It real comfortable in your hand and when compared to my previous phone (Nexus 5) it's not a HUGE jump. Somehow Motorola made it work.
    That was how I originally felt when I got the first Note. Hmmm. Looks big. Feels fine. What's the problem? I wouldn't mind if it were a touch bigger.

    It depends on how you use your phone, to be sure. I almost never use it as a phone! The screen space is really valuable for actually doing things like surfing the net, responding to long emails, streaming a video, reading a magazine or ebook.

    The sound adjustments really irk me. I love the layout of the G4 where they added a gear icon to quickly adjust all sound options from the same screen. I hate the Moto having to press down on the volume rocker. Especially if I'm playing a game and I try to turn down the media volume and it adjusts my damn notification volume instead!!!!!! 😡

    Trusted Bluetooth paired with my Moto 360 works for me.
