  1. i have been waited for this but it disappointed me cuz of 32bit processor and i dont know about moto after sales support sorry nexus i am going for iphone 6 plus.

  2. I don’t understand people expecting everything to be cheap. Just because it is a Nexus, it doesn’t have to be cheap. The specs are great and so is the price.

    1. Also, its not like 64-bit processors are a must now. Sure there is performance gain, but the current high end 32-bit processors perform more than enough for now. Next year everything will change.

  3. The price is ridiculous. If you can’t keep the price under 300$, don’t call it a Nexus at all. Maybe Google should have stuck with Asus instead of a pauper company like Motorola for the hardware. People with any sense will wait until the middle of 2015 to buy this when, on the one hand playstore apps have been properly optimized to work on the radically remodelled Android L and early problems and glitches with the interface etc have been sorted out, and on the other hand the price in India has dropped to about 30 k.

    I don’t understand all the people complaining about the size of the device. They must all be less than four feet tall if they think this device is too big. A large screen is needed to enjoy multimedia on a high-res screen, and even Apple have come to realize that. Even 6-inchers are common and highly popular today. And they fit comfortably into the pocket as experience shows. Google makes phones for human beings, not muppets! Deal with it!

    1. You can’t get everything for under $300. The specs on this phone is mind blowing. Sure it could have been a bit lower. But $300 is too low.

      1. Wait for xiaomi they must bring some thing awesome like that in 300-400$ only.. No nexus its time for xiaomi to rule..

      2. The whole point of the Nexus line is to popularize Android and to make a generic device running stock Android for developers to test their apps on. It is in Google’s interest to keep it as cheap as possible so that more people buy the device and give feedback to help iron out minor problems and also developers can quickly upgrade their apps to run well on and make the best use of the new OS features. Nexus is like the free sample drink they hand out at the supermarket. Obviously smartphones are a little more expensive to manufacture and Google are justified in attempting to retrieve their production cost and maybe some 5% more as a profit, BUT NOT MORE THAN THAT. We’re seeing a humbler Apple but a suddenly arrogant Google even though Apple are still on top in sales in the U.S. Not a good sign.

    2. Pauper, Motorola, huh and Asus? huh! Who made the first ever cellphone ?

      Specs are better than any flagship phone out there so is the price and where were you when Iphone 6 was launched?

      If you do not have brain, who asked you to act brainy?

      1. Who made the first cellphone is irrelevant. This is a company that has been swallowed up and spit out by Google minus their patents. I don’t understand this crazy obsession with dredging up ancient history.

        Don’t compare the Android project with toy PMPs running music player GUIs for people with more money than brains. Android is a serious mobile OS for tech-savvy users which may be taken to a whole other level with Android L. With iphones being cheaper than ever in the U.S, and the Note 4 also available, relatively few people will buy these and the normalization process for Android L will take much longer. That is frustrating and ridiculous. We deserve better than this.

  4. Someone looking for tablet that can fit in their jacket or pant will like it. This has good screen to bezel ratio….its surely big but if you have ever used lumia 1320/1520 or galaxy 6 incher then this is smaller then those phones.

  5. every thing is fine, expect 32 bit process. i believe google should wait little till snapdragon 810 launched. specially when Andriod L designed to handle 64 bit process why launched with snapdragon 805 with 32-bit processors. any how will wait till then Nexus 5 is good.

  6. Nexus 6 is Giant moto x (3rd Gen )!!!! What a Disappointment………….

    And Price Drowning…………..

    No need to launch in India Nobody will buy it ………………..

  7. This would probably be the last phone under Nexus series. The Android SILVER may replace with.

  8. nothing exciting,oversized screen,only 13 mp camera – google dissappoints…looks like moto x 2nd gen

  9. It will be $ 649 in the USA, but Google always charges more in India. Example is Nexus 5-$ 349 in USA and 28k in India, similarly this will be certainly about 48-50k in India, and how much market it will attract is anybodys guess. Many of us will be disappointed at the absence of a new smaller 5 to 5.2-inch device. Phablets are exciting, but they are unlikely to become the preferred form factor for the majority of users for some time.

  10. everything good except the size, the screen size should be limited to at most 5.2 -5.5 inches only. this is not usable as a daily companion phone. big disappointment.
