  • Rating: 8.6/10
  • "Good stuff": Stock Android Lollipop; big, beautiful screen; fast performance
  • "Bad stuff": Camera is only average; some software bugs; unpredictable battery life

Engadget: Google shows it can make a big-screen phone (Nov. 12)

  • Rating: 86/100
  • "The Nexus 6 is Google's first attempt at a phablet, and is the most premium Nexus we've seen to date. It's powerful, high-res and comes with the latest and greatest version of Android. But be warned that it's difficult to use with one hand, and its battery life is average at best."
