Nexus 6 finally makes it to Verizon stores
The Motorola built Nexus 6 has finally made it to Verizon. Now available online or inside Big Red's retail locations, the stock Android phablet is priced at $249.99 with a signed two-year pact, or $27.08 a month with Verizon Edge. The cash price for the phone is $649.99. The only version of the handset that Verizon carries is the 32GB unit in Midnight Blue.

The Nexus 6 comes with a 6-inch AMOLED screen featuring resolution of 1440 x 2560. That works out to a pixel density of 493ppi. A quad-core 2.7GHz Snapdragon 805 CPU is under the hood with the Adreno 420 GPU handling graphics. 3GB of RAM is inside. The rear-facing camera weighs in at 13MP and includes OIS. For selfies and video chats, you can employ the 2MP front-facing snapper. A 3220mAh battery keeps the lights on, and Android 5.1 is now available for the device.

If you'd rather purchase the 64GB or Cloud White version of the Nexus 6, you can pick it up at the new Google Store for $699. Orders placed today with Google will ship on March 27th.

I finally grabbed one yesterday, and all I can say is you can tell it is a Motorola. Great build quality and radios coupled with slightly above average battery life, a "meh" camera, and a piss-poor screen (for brightness). But, it is at least a Nexus, so you can rip all of the Google stuff out of it and it still works well.

Love mine. Rooted with a custom rom. I'm happy as a kid in a candy store.

For some reason the Sprint Nexus that I had couldn't do voice and web so I sold it and bought this one from Verizon. I just bought a back plate skin to cover that ugly Verizon logo.

Big deal. T Mobile had it available for the last 6 months already. Unlimited everything for $80/month, can't beat it.

To expensive for a 10 mm thick tab with 4g and last year's processor. If you want a phablet the Note 4 is a much better alternative. And you can use the Note in the daytime

Try it, then judge. Trust. It is freakin' amazing. =)

Oh, and ps. They rock the same exact processor, the same RAM, the same display, etc. The differences are size, stylus, IR scanner, fingerprint scanner and OS overlay. Those are the ONLY differences. The Note stylus is cool, but I know I never use it. The fingerprint scanner is the same as the S5 which means it sucks and Touchwiz is too cluttered for my taste. All of that being said, maybe you like those things, maybe the Note 4 is for you. But hardware wise? N6 is equal to the Note 4 in almost every measureable way. Software, its up to you if you consider touchwiz better than stock.

Preferences are exactly that, so I won't fault you for any of yours, but the displays are NOT the same--not even in the same league. I do see the appeal of the Nexus 6, but once again, to each, his or her own.

I have looked at both of them side by side because I have had this conversation here at the cell phone sales center I work at. =) They look EXACTLY the same when we compare the most colorful app we play in these parts. Clash of Clans. Now as for how it looks outdoors or comparitively in low light? Dunno, haven't tested that. But for regular use, they look EXACTLY the same. (Which is to say gorgeous =) )

That's fine, man. I've compared them as well. They don't look the same to me.
