    Ditto.

    I got mine right around release day and I took advantage of the discount when bundled with the Moto360. The 360 has gone to the great tech dump in the sky, but my N6 is kicking the Energizer Bunny's fluffy little tail.

    A couple of points about the N6. This was the first Nexus made by Motorola. This was the first Nexus that went up against other flagship phones. And (I think) this was the first Nexus that was a single model for all carriers. I know the carriers did muck with it a bit, but it was usually just a decal and a partition.

    My only concern is what happens when the battery stops charging. Motorola is not known for ease of access on sealed devices.

    Purely opinion here.

    The Moto Nexus 6 is the pinnacle of the Nexus devices and I can see no reason to get rid of mine. And Pixel? Seriously? From a bad ass Blade Runner reference to a Disney Pixar reference?


    Not opinion here.

    I have ZERO concern about it losing official updates. The ROM community has some pretty old devices using current software. The N6 will live on for YEARS. With current operating systems. With current security patches.

    My wife also had a Note 2 that was awsome for many years. It's only recently been relegated from daily driver to an MP3 player in the kitchen. I've had a Galaxy S5 for a while now which has been awsome, well ever since I rooted it and flashed Cyanogenmod. I'm a bit disappointed with the massive price increase of Android phones, I simply can't justify the expense of a Pixle phone or an S7 at present so I've cast my net around. After deciding that the most important thing for me is battery life I've decided to go with a Moto Z Play.

    Shame there's no midrange Pixel phone [emoji26]
    Also what a silly name "Pixel" they need to have a word with the branding department.

    Well, I broke down and pre-ordered the 32 GB through Fi. I really wanted the 128 but it's been driving me crazy not knowing how long I'll have to wait for stock to become available. I managed with 32 on my Nexus 5, and never came close to 64 GB on my Nexus 6, so I decided to go for it. Excited to get this thing in my hands. Plus, the free VR headset will be a nice addition!

    Well, that Asus looks interesting, but I reckon I'll rock my 6" Moto Nexus 6 for as long as it lasts. I got it off contract back in March 2015. Besides, who can beat batwings signal quality?

    I am going to keep my Nexus 6 as long as possible. When it stops receiving official updates and security patches. I will go and do the root/rom thing. I will do multiple factory resets, I am going to hold on to mine until the day it runs out power and no amount of charging will power it back on. When that day comes I will have to rush out and get a prepaid device, then decide where to head to next. The Nexus 6 the way things are looking will mostly likely be my last Google phone. With the exception of the Nexus 5x I have not liked anything that has come out since the Nexus 6. These pixel phones are a slap in the face

    So I was on the Nexus website last week and notice that the Nexus 6 isn't showing anymore, I had been on the Nexus site in January and February of this year and had seen it on the site but then last week it was gone, I noticed that the Nexus site will display it and than they won't, I figure that Google will phase out the Nexus website within five years,

    I'm just about on the two year anniversary on owning mine and it still rocks. I hope it keeps going strong as I had a HTC One M* with a 5.5" and for my old eyes, that extra 1/2" means a lot. And latest Moto offerings do not go that big. Now with the Nexus line going away, I just don't know . . .

    I'm starting to lean to the LG G6, but I'm waiting to see what else might crop up.

    I'll never own another LG phone. The 3 I had were OK, but once I got a Motorola I was blown away. I thought it was the area or building that caused all the dropped service and calls when I had LG. Owning moto's told me otherwise.

    This is one I'm keeping an eye on.. just need to do some research on how often LG push security updates to their devices and what to expect in regards to OS updates.

    I totally agree. Motorolas have the best radios, hands down. That said, AT&T has done dome significant upgrades in my area so dropped calls or weak data shouldn't be an issue.

    So Nexus phones have been removed from the Google store, leaving people with the choice of second rate piece of junk or going with something else. Fortunately my Nexus 6 is still going strong, so I am good for the time being. Hopefully two things happen, first my Nexus 6 holds out a few more years, second Google gets their act together and releases a decent phone
