Nexus 6

Android 5.0.1 lands on Nexus 5, T-Mobile pushes to Nexus 6 too

The circle seems to be complete and Google has finally uploaded the rather mysterious Android 5.0.1 to the Nexus 5 as well. This practically finishes the release of this rather unexpected Lollipop update, which first began with the Nexus tablets and then the Nexus smartphones, sans the Nexus 5, at least until now. In the meantime, T-Mobile has also received the update and has started pushing it to both the Nexus 5 as well as the more current Nexus 6.

Google nixed the fingerprint scanner on the Nexus 6

On one of the earliest rumor articles regarding the recently launched Google Nexus 6, a number of things were predicted that have been realized by Motorola (the maker of the phone, if you didn’t know) – this includes the gigantic 5.9-inch screen, the codename “Shamu” (the whale), the November release, and that it would come with what is now Android 5.0 Lollipop. But one prediction got nixed – the plan to have a fingerprint scanner with Google’s newest flagship Android phone.

Nexus 6 now available on US Cellular

The Nexus 6 is now available on U.S. cellular. This one is the biggest of the family we've seen, compared to its Nexus siblings. The new smartphone comes off the line with a large 6-inch Quad HD display screen. Is it too large or are phones these days just getting bigger?

Google warns of Nexus update bottlenecks from carriers

Nexus owners used to have reasons to be proud because they are expected to receive Android updates first. The point of getting a Nexus is to be the first in line for such updates from Google— or at least that’s what we counted on. Now, though, Google is warning that although it has its own targets for firmware updates, the carriers may not play ball.

Nexus 6 iFixit verdict: easy to teardown, lots of screws

After the Nexus 6, which was hard to come by in the market, had some time to percolate in the public, iFixit takes it for its usual teardown tour. While the Nexus 9 was a rather disappointing misadventure, scoring a weak 3 out of 7 on the iFixit scale, there is no immediate reason to expect the same from this Motorola product. Fortunately, the Nexus 6 does not disappoint and provides an almost smooth ride, except for a few minor bumps on the road.

Nexus 6 has hidden 3 color LED light but not for notifications

If you're one of the brand new owners of the Nexus 6, chances are, you probably have been experimenting with its various features and apps. One such kind of user discovered a "secret" hidden feature, which is a 3-color LED light (red, blue, green) located at the back of the speakers. But why is it hidden and not made a default feature for the smartphone? And why can't you use it to separate your notifications by colors?
