I have been carrying the Google Nexus 6 on my personal line for several weeks now and I have to say it is a solid phone now. I say it like that because I did run into a few things when I first started using it and mainly around battery and signal strength.

My house is in the country 5-7 miles from the nearest tower so I am use to having LTE upstairs and 3G downstairs with my other phones. My Nexus 6 before 5.1 update would generally have 1x and was very frustrating. Now, I receive LTE upstairs and sometimes even downstairs which is really great....


The problem I had before the 5.1 software update was with battery life. Before the recent software update I had to charge my phone up around 5 in the evening. Now, I am able to go the whole day on the same charge and only connect it when I go to be at night around midnight sometimes a little earlier depending on activity...

The only other thing I had to figure out was finding apps I similar to what I use with other phones with OEM overlay... a few searches in Google Play Store and I was able to set my Nexus 6 up the way I wanted it. That is one of the great things about Android is the ability to setup your phone the way you want it...

My final thoughts on the Nexus 6 is that it is a great phone after the recent 5.1 software update. The nexus 6 provides a large crisp display, 2 front facing speakers that deliver excellent sound and is very fast. The phone feels real solid when holding it and I now have it activated as my backup phone while I review other new phones Sprint carries.


Visit a Sprint store yourself and check out the Google Nexus 6 to see if it is the phone for you!


Thanks,
