Google Nexus 6 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 4

No doubt a phablet of sorts, due to its immense size, the Google Nexus 6 is the newest entrant in the space – one that naturally showcases the most up-to-date experience in Android 5.0 Lollipop. Needless to say, that one particular notion is enticing on its own, but it’s going to need more than just that to knock off the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 from its pedestal of being THE phablet to own at the moment...

Nexus 6 win for me because. 1. Nexus 6 come with water resistant 2. Lollipop is already there. 3. Fastest update to the upcoming android OS.

Correction: The Verizon version of the Note 4 is actually the cheapest of the major carriers. $700.

Please, tell me if you are using LG G3 and Google Nexus 6. Right now I am using HTC One M7. It's one of the best smartphones. But, indoors, in low-light situations, its camera takes photos and records video awfully, there's red-purple tint issue. Its battery is not removable. Its display is not big for internet surfing. I need best cameraphone for photos and videos, indoors and outdoors. I need a phone with large display for internet and watching videos. What about LG G3 and Google Nexus 6? Their cameras for taking photos and recording videos indoors and outdoors? Are their flash light during camera working, video ilght? If they are good phones, I will buy one of them instead of HTC One M7. Please, tell me. Thank you beforehand.

Nexus 6 camera is useless at night. Please do a Nexus 5 comparison, because it actually might be better in low light situations.

I definitely understand what all of you are talking about when it comes to touchwiz vs stock android, but those things aren't even really my concern. My question to you guys is, what was your last good Motorola phone. The two android based Motorolas that I had sucked a d!@# for the most part. Granted, those two phones introduced me to android but... I've never owned a Nexus before and I'm considering it, but it's that s**tty Motorola part that's getting me. I have owned a Samsung device which is my current phone and it is hands down the best device I've ever owned. I agree with you that Touchwiz, at least on the S4, is bloated crap, but still better than any device I've ever owned. Still I have never owned a Nexus, so I can't say anything about its performance. I've read good things though. Touchwiz in my opinion has a tendency to put out features that sound great on paper, but they never really perform as promised. I just wish I could get a Samsung Nexus. I wouldn't even think twice.
