    I bought two Nexus 6's at the same time from Verizon - one for myself and one for my wife. The phones both are running marshmallow and show identical names when I try to download an app through my desktop computer:

    "Verizon Wireless Motorola Nexus 6".

    I want to be able to tell which is which from on line.

    Q How can I change their names?

    Hello there and welcome!

    Go to the PlayStore. Click on the gear icon. Click on settings.
    The next screen will list your devices. At the far right choose "edit" and there you can edit the name of the device.:)
