    NEXUS 6? Hi folks I know the Nexus is the big brother of the Moto X but is it worth getting the PE and selling my Nexus?

    Yes imo. I love the nexus devices, but Moto offer pure nexus along with some awesome moto features.

    I don't have a Nexus 6, but I know people who do. For me, the Nexus 6 was a bit too wide. I really like the size of the Moto X Pure Edition since it is narrower than the Nexus 6, despite having the same screen size.

    I also like LCD on the Moto X Pure Edition, rather than AMOLED on the Nexus 6. LCD is easier to see outside in sunlight, and it does not suffer from burn-in like AMOLED.

    The pure is 5.7 inch screen, the nexus 6 is 6 inches

    If you like the size of the nexus then no. Other that a very slightly improved camera that you'll hardly notice, you'll be going backwards.

    I owned both and would consider the mxpe an upgrade to the nexus 6. However if the nexus 6 isnt too wide for you then the mxpe isnt *that much* of an upgrade. If they both had the same footprint I would buy a new nexus 6 for 289 and call it a day.

    "Going backwards"??? I really don't think so..."slightly improved camera"??? Much better camera, sure, no OIS, but much better detail, (13MP vs. 21MP) front camera is 100x better, (2MP vs. 5MP) and has flash, try that with your Nexus 6...let's see what else? Oh yeah, there's a faster and newer processor, screen is way better, higher ppi, no burn in, much more accurate colors, brightest screen out so far, and awesome in sunlight...let's see, thousands of color combinations, wood backs, leather backs, frame colors, accent colors...Nexus 6, white and dark blue...YAY!!! Not to mention, the MXPE feels awesome in hand, very comfortable, tiny bezels make the phone much smaller than it is...feels like a phone. Nexus 6, Huge, square, uncomfortable...did I mention HUGE??? Feels and looks like a tablet on your ear... Next...oh yeah, turbo charging...I can charge my phone in under an hour, and get 75% charge in about 15 min...Can your Nexus 6 do that??? Didn't think so...Hey try this...take a 256GB sd card and stick it in your phone and have a 320GB phone...oh wait, you can't do that either...SO sorry.
    Nexus 6 stock android = Great! MXPE stock android plus Moto Actions, Moto Assist, Moto Display and Moto Voice = AWESOME!!! No comparison...you know what they say, "Once you go black, you never go back"...well then the MXPE is one well hung black man...So what's left...battery life? Maybe, just maybe a slight edge to the Nexus 6, but with the turbo charger, no contest...Speakers? Both have the same, dual front facing stereo setup, that are extremely loud and clear and awesome, so that's a "tie"...Both can be used on any carrier, radios same, Bluetooth same, ram same, everything else the same...
    Sooooo...."How Does it feel going "backwards"???" Enjoy your Nexus 6...

    Relax. I use the MPXE as my DD right now due to the size. I have a lot of other phones as a developer. The pictures on the N6 look nearly identical to the Pure. The Pure has a major problem right now with the lack of security updates. For every feature the Pure has over the N6 the N6 has something over the Pure. I happen to think the N6 features are superior esp security updates. However the size gets me. So I'm using the Pure.

    The N6 was so big it never got me away from my M7 as a DD. But if you like the size of the N6 its a different story.

    Major problem? Come on. Unless you work for the NSA or exclusively download your apps from shady third party market places you're fine to wait a few more weeks for a serious security patch to get fixed...

    If security was that big of a deal to you you wouldn't be choosing your phone based on how it feels in your hand.

    What does the N6 have "over" the pure? (Nothing) Name 1 N6 feature that is "superior" to the pure??? (None) Go ahead, name one...bet ya can't. Besides your "security" update issue, which is irrelevant, the N6 may get it a little sooner, but the MXPE will get them...as well as all updates.

    The Turbo 2 is confirmed by Motorola to be getting Marshmallow: https://motorola-global-portal.custh...U0s1cFdfQW0%3D

    Seeing as it's a brand new phone, it would be pretty ridiculous if it didn't get Marshmallow at some point.

    It took the turbo 1, released 10/30/14, until summer '15 to get Lollipop. Hopefully, our T2s won't have to wait nearly that long.

    One? Battery.

    Doesn't matter though, you're well into the red mist of supporting the Pure at all costs. I'm glad it's a good phone for you, but the OP asked if it was worth switching and I stand by my statement if you like the size of the N6 then no.

    Battery? Really...is that all you got? That makes it a better phone? So if the battery lasts an hour or 2 longer that makes it a better phone? So if your Yugo gets 50 miles to the gallon and my Ferrari gets 5 miles to a gallon, I guess you have a better car than me? Wow... good logic. I've owned probably at least 15 smart phones, including the N6, along with the Droid turbo, which by the way lasts almost 2 days...so that must be the best phone ever made then. This is all about your comment that the pure is a step "backwards" from the N6, you clearly don't have clue. And you still haven't gave 1 clear reason that the N6 is the "superior" phone...oh yeah, battery life...SUPERIOR!!!
