Hey folks,

I've been over at the Nexus 9 forum for a few weeks posting about (what turned out to be) my miserable experience with the Nexus 9. But I'm hoping for bigger and better things with the Nexus 9. So I'll posting in this thread on regular basis about the Nexus 6. My experiences, important things you might want to know and general how it fits into my life as my new daily driver. Here's the first three videos, but I'll be posting a lot more over the next few weeks and, I hope, months. Don't forget to comment back and share you experiences and get involved at they may influence what I film about next.

Three initial things of interest to me:

How has the forced encryption out of the box affected your device? Is there any lag or stutter?

How is the standby time on the device? Can it go overnight without losing too much juice?

Does your device have the pink tint when the brightness slider is turned all the way down, with Adaptive Brightness off?

Some cool questions there.

I am going to do a 'general performance' video soon as there does seem to be some odd times when the device just 'pauses'

I have already done a battery video of sorts but I can definitely do the overnight one as a request :)

I have also done a screen brightness video and noticed no pink tint.

So, in summary, videos due on all of them over the next week or so :)

Lollipop is transition heavy now and I think people are confusing lag with transitions. I personally feel if no one knew the phone was encrypted from the jump, no one would know the difference. The gains anyone would feel from decrypting would be so minimal to offset the protection of the phone.

How is the standby time on the device? Can it go overnight without losing too much juice? The standby time is phenomenal. I've not lost over 4% from 12-6 am. Having said this, everyone uses their phone differently. People have different apps downloaded. This is all subjective.

Does your device have the pink tint when the brightness slider is turned all the way down, with Adaptive Brightness off?
Yes, the pink tint is available when the slider is all the way down with adaptive brightness. It isn't an issue for me because I only turn it down that low when I'm sleeping. Otherwise, I use at 50% with adaptive brightness and about 25% without adaptive brightness.

It's a classic gadget test: How long does the Nexus 6 take to boot? With the latest hardware and software surely there is only one outcome, right?

http://youtu.be/ax1PNES5seE

1:20 boot up time is rather slow; substantially slower than the S4, and even the S3, which I have. I'd say the Nexus 6 boot up time is comparable to that of a BlackBerry, which I also had at one point. Of course, BlackBerry's devices are encrypted, much in the way the Nexus 6 is. I wish there was a way to de-encrypt the device without rooting it, but alas, I haven't heard of that happening.
