    The 6p is too big and too ugly. But really, too ugly.

    Even so, the nexus 5x might be the biggest phone I can manage. 😂
    Yup, can't go any bigger. Held my friends Nexus 5 again yesterday and it just felt so damn great.

    I picked the 5x for 3 reasons:
    1. SIZE!!!
    2. the 6P is ug-ly!
    3. Huawei, to date for me, is still a relatively unknown entity


    I actually have a Moto X Pure (and the X1 and the X2). I love everything about it except that it is too big for me to use one-handed (seems to be a common theme, eh?). After using it for a month, I finally realized that being forced to always use my device with two hands was making it feel like a lot less of a "mobile phone" and a lot more like a tablet. UGH.

    I like the 5X A LOT. It isn't that much of a compromise for me other than it only has 2GB RAM (hope that never becomes an issue) and it doesn't have the Moto apps that bring a goodly amount of convenience to the user experience. Working at learning Tasker to address that.

    So the 6P was actually never in the running--nothing about it appeals to me.
    What moto feature is missing or not as good in 6.0?

    Coming from the Moto X 2014 I can say Ambient Display is a mediocre replacement to Moto Display. I have finally gotten a hang of how to always get it to activate but it's still a poor implementation by comparison.

    Double press power is fine to launch the camera but the problem is doing it this way makes the phone re-lock every time you take a picture which is dumb. Motorola's double twist is better thought out.

    There is no replacement for Motorola's Moto Assist for reading texts while driving. Third party app Agent works fine as a replacement but again it doesn't quite work as well since it isn't baked into the OS.

    Size, plus the fact that I've come to the conclusion that the specs race isn't worth it. I broke a phone recently and pulled my old MotoX 2013 out - it was still snappy. So I reasoned that there isn't a need for the greatest of specs as long as the day-to-day experience was good
    My current phone, love all of it's functionality but I have to constantly charge throughout the day. Waiting for N6P to save me. Hope I can get used to the size.

    Thanks for speaking sense. I've lost count of the amount of times I've seen people be negative about the 5x for RAM reasons without knowing why they are saying it!

    It's all numbers. 8 is more than 4, so the phone is OBVIOUSLY better! No it's not. When are you ever going to need 8 cores to run Facebook on your phone?

    Back to the thread question:
    I didn't get the 6p because I think the camera bar is fugly. I had a Galaxy Note 2 at 5.5" and as much as I enjoyed the large screen then to read on the Kindle app, I much prefer my Moto X 2014 now. 5.7" is beyond what I'm willing to tolerate.

    I'm not exactly looking forward to missing the Motorola features though. In fact, I'm kinda worried lol.

    Size. NO interest in larger phones. 5x is even larger than I'd like.

    Mainly size. What I really wanted was a 5.5" Nexus this year. The 6P seems just a bit too large to fit comfortably in jeans pockets so I went with the 5x and I like it as well as I liked my Nexus 5. The fingerprint reader is my favorite feature and the camera is definitely better than the N5. I am going to watch what happens with new Android phones in 2016. Am particularly interested in seeing the Force Touch screens being implemented in Android.

    I hear you.. I'll have to give the N6P a try anyways.

    I used to have a home made text read a loud and reply using Tasker prior to Moto Assist. Motorola does have the best touch free text option for driving.
    Will definitely miss that and the camera twist. I currently use a 3 button push for my flashlight app. The N6P is going to certainly get confused with that many power button hacks.

    Size too. 5x is just about right for my size hands. That was until I received my phone case and now it's just a bit unwieldy. I'll manage. Otherwise, I would have bought the 6p.

    I'm passing off my 5X to my brother and getting the 6P, but that's just because I don't keep phones very long. I'm excited to see the differences with the 6P, but I think the 5X is definitely underrated. It does everything well; battery life, display, camera, performance, in-hand feel, software, etc. The one thing it nails more than anything else is the in-hand feel and that goes underappreciated these days. For the price, it really can't be beat.

    With the way they're promoting it/advertising it, I'm hoping this phone sells really well. I'm glad I spent my money on it. If they see enough of these leave the warehouses, it might prompt them to make another model with a similar size next year, but higher-end.

    Oh I'm getting one...next year when price is reduced as today's Nexus 6, which happens to be cheap when compared to last year. This way I can have a great device, still with the latest specs, running the latest OS. People will be looking forward to get rid of them next year to upgrade to the latest issued device.

    I wanted to get the 6P, but could not afford to pay in full Upfront. Walked into T-Mobile and picked up LG V10

    I chose the 5X over the 6P because of mainly size. I don't want a massive phone. Also, the plastic construction is not a big deal for me. I am very happy with my Nexus 5X and I'm glad I chose it over the 6P

    I can honestly say that coming from a Moto X 2014 to a Nexus 5X was a breeze. I don't really miss the Moto features as much as I thought I would. The benefits far outweigh the compromises.

    As a whole, the Nexus is much smoother than the Moto, and just like the Moto the size of the Nexus is perfect. I have been very disappointed with the recent direction Moto has taken since the Lenovo acquisition, so that makes having a pure Google phone that much better.

    I have also activated my Nexus on Project Fi, and I have been very happy with the QoS with them so far.

    Thanks. I'm keeping my 5x. That camera is solid, and I take ALL my pictures with my phone. Just letting my SO try it out because he needs a new phone. There are things he likes about it, there are things he doesn't. He's currently on a Moto X 2013
