Sprint Product Ambassadors: Nexus 6 aka Mr. Clean

The Nexus 6 by Motorola is the phone you need to get. That is all. The end.

In all seriousness, I have not been happier with another device, and have used a lot of them. I have even dubbed my Nexus 6 as Mr. Clean.


When it comes to Android, my typical process has been… “Activate Device > Add Google Account > Delete Bloatware.” That third step… deleting bloatware, well that is a pain point for me. I’d rather not see a plethora of apps I probably won’t use already installed on my device. This is just one of the things that makes the Nexus 6 by Motorola so amazingly perfect. It comes with clean, pure, vanilla android (Lollipop 5.0)… and the Sprint version of the Nexus 6 has ZERO bloatware whatsoever. It has the standard Google apps that are part of the Google/Android ecosystem, which work harmoniously and perfectly on this device. Also something to note, Nexus devices receive the latest and greatest OS updates prior to other Android devices. You can rest assured that your Nexus 6 will be running the newest version of Android before other Android device types will receive updates.


Another item I love about the Nexus 6 is its size. The Nexus 6 has a 6 inch AMOLED Quad HD display and is 6.2 inches in length. It is stunning and brilliant! A side note: something I found humorous, my iPhone 6 has a 5.5 inch display and is 6.22 inches in length. Yes, the Nexus 6 has a larger display, but is slightly shorter than the iPhone 6 with its smaller display. Android lovers should enjoy laughing at that one! In any case, the 6 inch display is a fantastic size. I do not find it too large in the least bit. I firmly believe that the extra screen real estate is needed on smart devices. We rely on our devices for so much in our lives today, why wouldn’t we want more screen space to enjoy? If you are one of the folks that still wants a smaller device, there are other options for you. However, I believe that one of these days you will come around and embrace the larger device. It no longer “looks” odd in public, DOES fit in pockets (contrary to popular belief), is widely accepted, enjoyed, and used. Think about touchscreens… you no longer use a tactile keyboard, and have embraced touchscreen keyboards. It is only a matter of time until everyone hops on the large device bandwagon, in my opinion.

There is much more I can write about the Nexus 6, but will leave it for my upcoming Nexus 6 blog posts. Until then, if you’re in the market for a new device, the Nexus 6 would be a stellar and smart choice.
