  1. Yang Yibo

    There were mixed reviews on Amazon and XDA on whether the Sprint set is an unlocked set. I decided to take a risk and buy this since it’s way too troublesome to buy from Google Play Store from overseas.After I received the phone, i took out the pre-installed Sprint SIM and popped in my local telco SIM (StarHub, Singapore). BAM, this thing is indeed unlocked! I updated the OS to 5.0.1, unlocked the bootloader and then removed the force encryption.This phone is a huge upgrade (no pun intended) to my Nexus 4. I’m now a happy owner of the Nexus 6.PS: This phone comes with a process called SprintDM which is used for Sprint activation. I decided to leave this thing alone and not remove it since some folks on XDA were saying this is essential for the phone to run properly, even if you are not using Sprint.

    This is a great phone. It’s fast. It’s big. It’s not loaded with garbage bloatware. The power button is definitely too close to the volume buttons and I regularly put my phone to sleep when trying to turn up the volume. The wake up feature is called ambient something and it only works if you pick up the phone right side up and turned the correct way, which gets annoying. By overall it’s a great phone. I’m not sure about other people’s definition of moderate use, but my moderate use drains the battery rather quickly. I seem to always have it on battery saber mode. But that is a problem with all smart cell phones. None of them have a great battery life, so don’t believe the hype and keep your expectations low for all of them.

  3. Radio Geek

    Unlike others reporting on here, it IS unlocked. It is carrier unbranded and has no bloatware except for the Sprint hands free activation. (doesn’t affect anything, so leave it alone, just don’t use it when not on Sprint). Make sure to slip your SIM card from another provider (besides Sprint) in and THEN turn the phone on. If you need to slip another SIM in from another provider after that, your best bet is to do a hard reset of the phone.Great phone, love the features. Size is not an issue, for me. Still slips in front jean pockets.Bad: Radio for LTE was very weak. Never more than 2 bars and would go between 2 and 0 bars, unless you are within a block of a tower. Def defect of the phone I received. I also had a severe bug on the Sprint network. (This is a known issue that only occurs on Sprint and this phone, documented as early as November 2014 and not solved until the day of this review). —- Send 1 text, person receives it 7 to 10 times. Let the phone sit, will not ring and goes straight to voice mail. If you force the phone on to 3g or 1x, the issue is not present. Really, why have to force a phone like this back to 3G???? I had to send it back to Amazon. Was told they are no longer selling the phone through Sprint due to high amount of returns. (Assume is the Sprint issue I described). I received a full refund.I like the phone so much I ordered one from Motorola since they and Google Play have the serial numbers white-listed with ALL the 4 major carriers assuring your device can be activated with no issues. (even with Verizon).Phone is 5 stars, but due to the LTE defect and the Sprint bug, I gave it 3 stars.

    SHORT VERSION:—————————-You may not be able to know for sure if you will get the XT1103 (model 00630NARTL) or the XT1100 (model SM4034AW4N3) when you purchase this phone on Amazon. I bought one for myself (sold directly from Amazon) and then bought one for my wife about a month later (sold from DeltaMobiles via Amazon). I got the XT1103 US model on the first order (from Amazon), then got the XT1100 international/euro model on the second order (from DeltaMobiles). This is a problem because the XT1100 cannot use 3G or LTE on my carrier (Consumer Cellular, which piggybacks on the AT&T network) or on virtually any other US cellular carrier. So even though I went back into my Amazon order history and purchased the second Nexus 6 using the same product page as the first that I bought, the second was a different model that will not be able to utilize high-speed data. See the photo attached to this review which shows both boxes side-by-side. I am returning the XT1100 and I bought my wife another Nexus 6 directly from the Google Store to be sure I will get an XT1103 that is set up for US data networks (it was the same price as Amazon when I bought it just now). I use Amazon all the time for all kinds of things, but in this case I would recommend that you avoid purchasing a Nexus 6 through Amazon unless it is clear exactly which model you’re going to receive. You are SUPPOSED to get an XT1103 when you buy the phone on this product page – note that in the Technical Details section on the product page it specifically has “00630NARTL” as the item model number, which is the US-compatible XT1103, so if you get an XT1100 (model SM4034AW4N3) you are getting the wrong phone. I am suspicious that DeltaMobiles is purposely sending people the wrong phone.LONG VERSION:—————————-I love this phone. This is my first Android phone after three iPhones and I couldn’t be happier. I love the huge, bright screen, the camera is pretty nice, the phone is fast, and LTE is awesome.But here’s why I wrote this review: I purchased my Nexus 6 on May 7th, 2015. It shipped from Amazon (in other words it says “Ships from and sold by Amazon.com” under the price on the Amazon product page), and I got the XT1103, which is the US model. It only took a few minutes to set it up on my service (Consumer Cellular, which piggybacks on the AT&T network), and it hooked up to LTE immediately. You probably already know this if you are shopping for a high-end smartphone, but LTE (aka 4G LTE) is the most recent high-speed data network. It means faster downloading, web browsing, etc. and is one of the major benefits of upgrading to a new phone if your current phone is not LTE-capable.My wife was jealous of my new, giant, beautiful phone, which is understandable since I intentionally showed it off to her all the time and often suggested the inferiority of her old iPhone (which was a hand-me-down from when I made my previous iPhone upgrade). So for our anniversary, I bought her a Nexus 6 as well (purchased on June 16th, 2015 – a little over a month from when I bought mine). I gave it to her today, and then started setting it up for her. Everything in the setup went normally just like it had with my phone, but when I disabled the wi-fi to test the data network, I noticed that her phone was not connecting to LTE (or 3G for that matter). I set both our phones side by side and checked the APN settings and some other phone settings to verify that they were set up identically, which they were. I had only taken the phone itself out of the box up to this point, and when I removed the rest of the contents I saw the European plug on the phone’s charger. I compared the box of her phone to mine (see attached photo) and finally realized by looking at the labels that my wife’s Nexus 6 was the XT1100 (euro/international model), and that I had gotten the XT1103 (the US version). While the XT1100 looks identical, has an identical OS, uses the same nano sim card, etc., it has a very different setup in terms of compatible cellular networks and will not use US 3G or LTE. Note that the XT1100 will still work for making calls and using basic cellular data (GSM), but you will not be able to access 3G or LTE.I was pretty certain that I had bought my wife’s Nexus 6 from the exact same product page on Amazon from which I had purchased my own, so I went back into my order history to verify this. Both of the orders do point to the same product page, but the first order (XT1103 US model) was sold by Amazon, while the second order (XT1100 international model) was shipped/sold by DeltaMobiles. Currently (June 20th), the product page says it is being sold/shipped by Amazon again. I didn’t even realize that it was a different seller when I made the second purchase.This situation is pretty frustrating because nobody buying this phone to use it in the US would likely choose the international model instead of the US model since the international model will not perform as well on US networks, so I don’t know why they are sending the XT1100 to US customers. Because the seller (DeltaMobiles) covered the SM4034AW4N3 model number on the box with a separate tag (see the photo attached to this review) I became a little suspicious that they are intentionally sending people the wrong phone because many people may not know that the XM1100 is the wrong phone. After all, it is a genuine Nexus 6, it will place phone calls in the US, and it will be able to use cellular data, so many people may start using it and never realize (or only realize too late) that they’ve gotten the wrong phone that can’t use the much faster 3G and 4G data networks. If it is possible for a seller to make a little more money by sending the XT1100 to customers in the US than by sending them the correct XM1103, I bet this would explain why DeltaMobiles is sending out the wrong phone.For your reference, these are the compatible networks for the two versions of the phone:XT1103 (Model 00630NARTL) :GSM: 850/900/1800/1900 MHzCDMA band class: 0/1/10WCDMA bands: 1/2/4/5/8LTE bands: 2/3/4/5/7/12/13/17/25/26/29/41CA DL bands: B2-B13, B2-B17, B2-29, B4-B5, B4-B13, B4-B17, B4-B29XT1100 (Model SM4034AW4N3)GSM: 850/900/1800/1900 MHzWCDMA bands: 1/2/4/5/6/8/9/19LTE bands: 1/3/5/7/8/9/19/20/28/41CA DL bands: B3-B5, B3-B8And if you put the search term “List of LTE networks” into Google, you can go to a Wikipedia page that will show you all of the individual networks and what bands they use for LTE.

    First, the unit came in a box as the wrong color and IMEI does not match. Second, had quite a bit of trouble getting it set up with Google FI. Some of these issues described here may be the fault of the device, or may be the operating system, or maybe FI, it’s hard to tell. But the following problems exist and google fi and google product support have been unable to help.1) Handover from wifi to cell and cell to wifi does not work as FI promises.2) Frequently left with zero service when I know there is service available. Frequently powering the phone completely off and back on will restore, but on a N6, this takes several minutes.3) when I go from a wifi zone at home, travel to work, it sometimes will not connect to work wifi. Sometimes I have to reboot or turn airplane mode on then off.4) same as #3, almost EVERY time I go from work to home it will not pick up the wifi. I have to reboot or turn airplane mode on and off. Frequently also have to re-select access point and re-enter passwords.5) device is now complaining that Google Play services needs an update to run. Ok, so click through that and it brings me to the google play store to update, but no update is available: Just the expected “open” app button. Google had me try clearing caches and other steps. Terminating a service at their suggestion cleared the error alert, but only for that session; after rebooting it comes back. Hard to tell if this is the root of the other issues or not.6) Thinking it might be a good idea to update to Android 6 and finding on web stories that it should be available to FI customers, I tried to update. But no updates are available. Again, round and round with Google, clearing caches, restarting in recovery mode to clear things to no avail. Finally Google starts telling me things like “Take it back to where you purchased it for support” (bring it back to Amazon – I think that won’t work so well as it’s been months since purchase!); and then “Well, the carrier determines when updates are rolled out”. Ok, but GOOGLE (FI) is my carrier. So Google buys Motorola, makes the Nexus 6, sells it to me, Google makes the Device, the OS, and is the Carrier, yet I cannot update the device. Hm, something is wrong here.7) The next step I’ve been advised is wipe the device and restart and see what happens. Great. A nice long weekend project…

    Excellent phone for the money. I had a Note 7 that was returned under recall and I needed a phone to hold me over until something comes out that I like and is comparable. The LGV20 and Google Pixel XL do not support wireless charging which is a dealbreaker for me. The S7 Edge is a step down in size and the radical curve on that screen detracts from reading books etc. This phone has a beautiful screen (little dim in direct sunlight compared to Samsung but definitely good for 95% of my daily usage), excellent speakers, will be updated to nougat, and plenty fast for anything that I have thrown at it. I actually don’t miss my Samsung S6 that I traded in for the Note 7.

    The Nexus 6 is a great phone! However tread carefully with a so called “refurbished” phone purchase. I received the nexus 6 in less than fair condition and cannot get it replaced. I should have known better than to buy a used phone from Amazon. They said they would replace it after I buy another one then send the old one back which is something I cannot do. Now I am stuck with a buggy phone that has several issues. As far as the Nexus 6 goes, it is a wonderful smartphone running Android 7.0 Nougat. Perfect screen to shell ratio, sturdy, nice camera, and smooth app transitioning.

    Very, Very disappointed! I got this phone for work! First, it started lagging, then it started restarting while not in use or when I am engaged in an activity on my phone. Now as of 11/6/2016, the charging port is damaged! I have no insurance as if it would have done me any good as I would have had to pay between $200-$250 for a refurbished phone when I only paid $59 and some change for a new one!. I have so much important stuff on my phone I need for work and priceless videos of my kids, family, and loved ones who have passed a away. This is a total lost, my livelihood is on the dead block.

    I love this phone! It is a huge upgrade from my LG K10. The last Motorola phone I owned was a Motorola Rizor….not Razor. It lasted forever. I’m hoping this phone will too. It is very well built and is good at multitasking. Even under stress, this phone never misses a beat. The screen size is perfect for watching movies and the stereo front facing speakers are loud and have good quality sound. The battery lasts all day even when being used very consistently. I wish there was an SD card slot but that’s ok. 32gb is enough for me. Just so people know I bought this phone as new. I feel like the people who bought used or refurbished phones are the ones posting the negative reviews and giving this phone a 1 star rating. Please take my advise. Don’t buy a used or refurbished phone expecting to get new condition and then complain about it on a review when something doesn’t work.

    I love Motorola! Except for this one. Where I’ve had issues with iPhones, Samsung, windows based phones… I’ve NEVER had issues with Motorola…. Until this phone. Since I got it, it has frozen. Randomly. Even if there are no apps running. It’s pretty inconvenient when you’re getting a business call and it freezes and won’t let you answer your phone. 🙄 The camera is TERRIBLE. It doesn’t matter if you have HD on or off, it takes FOREVER after you push the button to focus in, out, in, out, in, out… Then captures it, 2 seconds later after that, then processes it for a minute, then you’re ready to take another picture. I can’t tell you how many photo opportunities I’ve missed with my rambunctious 2 year-old because by the time the camera got around to taking the pictures, my little boy was long gone and on to other mischief. AND there’s a weird static/rainbow line that goes down your screen, like it’s shorting out? And it will save across your picture. 🙁 Another thing I don’t like is you don’t have a gallery for photos. Only Google photos. Again, I have NEVER had issues with Motorola… But this one is terrible. I’ve had a pay-as-you-go cheapy Android that worked better and was $200 cheaper. 👎👎

    The fingerprint software was not on the phone. Called google they said it was defective. I had to send it back.

    I already owned this phone, that I purchsed through Google about a half year ago and loved it. When my wife dropped her phone and cracked the screen I knew I wanted her to get a Pixel 2 XL, but did not want to pay a ton, so I ordered this one.It shipped within the 2 day window and was well protected in the box it came in, not only from Amazon, but the seller.The phone was in perfect condition. There are no scratches to the glass or the back or sides of the phone, basically just as good as if it was new. It also came with all the original accessories for the phone, which match the ones that came with mine: USB C to headphone adapter, power brick, USB C to C cable, and a micro USB to C adapter.Phone was clear for activation and was not blacklisted. We put it on AT&T and it connected without issue.Overall I’m super happy with this phone and will update this if we start having any issues with it.

    Rear camera stopped working after 6 weeks. Called Google support – was told its a hardware issue. Currently a few weeks into warranty hell – Google says the IMEI is a Verizon device originally – Verizon won’t honor the warranty, Google won’t give me anything but a Verizon phone – however, they’re completely out of Verizon phones. So now I’ve got a really expensive phone with the world’s greatest camera that won’t start.

    I recently destroyed my phone and wasn’t keen to replace it with any of the premium offerings currently out. I have my mind set on March and the next generation of the Galaxy line. So, I needed a stop gap solution in the meantime. I needed something with at least 3 gb of ram, 6 inch screen, high ppi count screen, a snappy processor, while running at least 7.1.2. I’d owned this phone when it first came out and remembered it as being a very high spec phone that was just lacking that “it” factor. Considering my needs, this was a natural stop gap solution.Here are my overall thoughts:- The size of this phone is huge. I have large hands so it’s not an issue. However, if you don’t have large hands and you like to use your phone with one hand, this is not going to be for you.- The processor and ram are still in the upper end of what can be bough today. This phone is still better than 90% of what’s on the market. Multi tasking is very easy to do an this phone is not going to struggle with multiple apps running.- The screen is beautiful and has a very high ppi count. Resolution and crispness is very comparable to most premium phones now, but just slightly behind.- This phone can run Android 7.1.2, which is a generation out, but has nearly all features that matter.- The camera is very good, but the camera app that comes stock is horrible. Download something off Play Store to get the most out of the camera.- Battery life is good but not great. Look, this phone is massive and the amount of ppi this runs just makes power hungry like none other. So, what you will get out of this is approximately 4 hours on a full charge, if you’re using it that entire time nonstop and multitasking. If you’re merely checking social media, emailing, doing some light browsing, and using Maps briefly, then yes, at that point, you’ll get most of an entire day. I just want people to be aware, if you’re power using this phone for long periods of time, you’re not getting over 4 hours out of it.- Turbo charger is very good but it doesn’t charge as fast as promised. You’re looking at a little over an hour for a full charge and a quick 15 minute charge will get you around 20%. There are certainly faster charging phones and chargers available now.- It’s a heavy phone. It feels good in the hand and has solid contours but there’s no way around the fact that this is a tank of a phone.In sum, this is still to this day better than 90% of the phones on the market. It runs a fairly pure version of Android and was very well made. Specs are still excellent even after all this time. It’s not the type of phone that will wow you with whip cream type features, but in terms of pure spec and power, it’s still a fabulous phone. Finally, when I say it’s a tank, I mean it. Unless you absolutely abuse this phone, you won’t break it. So, as a stop gap solution or even as a main phone, this will still get you through your day very well!Cheers!

    For years with my phones I have always gone with the idea of “Hardware over software” because of the fact that software can be changed and updated, but hardware cannot. As a result, I stuck mainly with Samsung and oneplus phones (most recently the note 9).This year, I finally took the plunge on the Pixel, because I felt like the hardware was finally good enough to just scrape by (more than 4 gigs of ram is nice, 90hz screen is great, and the camera makes me feel like a professional). Its been almost a month, and I don’t regret it at all.The experience is wildly better when there is no bloatware or extra stuff to get through. I didn’t have to disable a hardware dedicated button to a function I never used, disable apks, and change all the default apps. If you are one that does not value the software experience, though, I feel like there are a lot of other phones that you should get instead. If you cannot get it on sale like I did, then I do not think what you get is worth the price. But now that I have experienced it, I don’t know if I can ever go back to other android phones, save for OnePlus, if their cameras ever catch up.

    T-Mobile didn’t offer the Pixel 4XL so I took a chance and bought this unlocked one. I was upgrading from an LG G4 and zero’ed in on the 4XL for both its amazing camera and the extended battery life.I was concerned about the larger size, but frankly it’s just a little longer than my old phone, and about the same width, so it fits in my hand and purse nicely.I was also concerned about the upgrade process. Turns out that Android (Google) has made this essentially effortless. Backup your data to the Google Cloud first (just in case) then use a cable to directly connect the phones together. It literally walks you through, step by step. I have all of my data, message history and most critically my contacts across and verified – and without a call to T-Mobile. Even the SIM transferred across (though I had to take it out of its larger frame), and the apps were all pre-installed for me. Totally awesome experience!!The phone is a breeze to use. Intuitive layout and effortless operation. It’s a pleasure to use the facial recognition instead of punching in a pin each time to unlock it. Voice-to-text works exceptionally well. I’ve installed my corporate email too, and have found that I can be productive handling emails with the voice-to-text function.One of the other reasons I purchased it was because I knew that Android (Google) would keep it updated, and so far this has worked like a charm. Updates happen in the background with the occasional re-start (you have to enter your PIN then).And finally the camera is simply amazing! Only down side is that the screen can be hard to see in full sunlight, so you end up taking a best guess on a shot. I’m a professional photographer so my standards for image quality are pretty high, and the camera here seems to do everything really well. The AI processing for NightVision really produces nice outputs – celestial photography is possible with this phone!I’m a little different from the normal mobile user in that I keep a device for a long time – in the case of the last phone, it was about 5 years. Upgrading to the best available lets me stretch the technology curve. I expect I’ll keep this one for at least as long – until 5G really becomes a thing.

    What can I say, this is just the best phone out there. The only reason it doesn’t get five stars instead it doesn’t have a fingerprint reader and many of the apps I use don’t accept the facial recognition on Android just yet. But the camera takes the best pictures around and the stock Android interface is fantastic. Not only isnit clean, but I don’t have multiple calendars and multiple emails and multiple contacts and multiple everything I’m dealing with. It’s all just Google and it’s on my Google cloud and that’s where I want it. So if you’re not a conspiracy theorist and you don’t mind having Google, then this phone is it. Integration is off the charts. In My circles, I’m known as a phone junkie. I have literally had every phone you can think of and not only ones but maybe twice and I’ve kept a log of what is good and what is bad about phones. This phone encompasses all of the good and very little of the bad. There are no perfect phones, that much I can assure you, but this is a pretty good one. And to boot, I’m not a sheep carrying an iPhone like everybody else.

    Excellent phone!! I have small hands and this phone is the perfect size. The face recognition is outstanding. I have owned this phone for almost a year and have had zero issues. Just make sure to get an Otterbox Defender case as the glass is fragile even with a screen protector. Screen protector for whatever reason does not cover the very top part of the phone which is where it cracked. Battery life is adequate for my use. I bought a replacement Pixel 4 because it is a fantastic phone.

    Fairly good phone. Overheats in the sun and battery is far less than the 3a xl. Fast processor.

    First of all if you already own a Pixel 4a 5G it’s not really worth the upgrade as in Performance is the same. Uses same RAM, Processor, internal storage, and Camera.Despite this, it’s still a good mid-range price phone. Able to do all daily tasks/the basics without high screen refresh rate (only has 60hz). If you’re wanting something more premium look into Pixel 6 or Pixel 6 ProList of Changes:1. Slightly larger screen: 6.34inches (instead of 6.2 in Pixel 4a 5G). Basically it’s a few cms taller2. Bigger Battery: 4680mah battery (vs 3885mah). 20% more battery life3. Has IP67 dust and water resistance. The Pixel 4a 5G has none. Can survive 3 feet of water for 30mins4. Metal Unibody (instead of poly carbonate). May not tell the difference due to plastic coating5. $50 lower launch price6. One color option: “Mostly Black”. Pixel 4a 5G is “Just Black”. Pixel 5a is slightly lighter and have a slight green hue to it7. Has textured power button for blind pressing8. Gorilla Glass 6 (vs Gorilla glass 3 on Pixel 4a 5G)Additional Notes:In terms of 5G. Has same 5G as Pixel 4a 5G. Uses Sub-6GHz instead of mm wave 5G. No C-band supportHas headphone jackNo wireless charging

    I usually only buy a new device after having the old one for four years, but my last device was only 3 years old but 3G and AT&T is shutting off 3G service. AT&T “helpfully” sent me a free phone that, on the surface had everything I wanted in a phone – hotspot and slot for memory expansion. I was thinking “I won’t have to buy a new phone for another four years!” but it turned out that it was lacking one critical function – the ability to do… anything. I mean, it worked fine, as long as I wasn’t trying to do anything. Oh, and the memory sot is just a bit wider than the memory card, which meant the memory card slipped about once a week and the phone couldn’t access it. And the new plan I need to get onto in order for my daughter to go to university in Canada meant I couldn’t use the hotspot. Free phone was 0/0.So I looked into the Pixel. My wife has a Pixel 3a, and when I used it I was weirded out by the lack of the home button, and I had a hard time with the power button being above the volume. But I read a couple of reviews that mentioned that problem, and that after about a day of using the Pixel, they had gotten used to the new controls without problem. I was going to go for the 4a, but the 4 series doesn’t have fingerprint, only face recognition (hello – masks!), and I loved the fingerprint reader on my prior phone. So I moved up to the 5a. And I have to say, the extra expense was worth it.I’m sure my disappointment with the free phone (which after a week of fiddling with I still had not fully migrated to) has at least some influence on my perceptions of this phone (which I was able to fully migrate to in an afternoon). But the 5a also compares very favorably with my prior phone, even subtracting for the tech improvements of the last couple of years.And to top it off I’m now instantly a better photographer without having to do a thing.

    The sole reason we decided to order Pixel 5a from Amazon – is that we wanted to avoid buying Japanese version (my wife doesn’t like camera sound). “International version” sounded like what we needed, but in the end it turned out to be a version with Japanese restrictions. If we knew about it we would never bought it, since we had much cheaper options for the Japanese version (and with much faster delivery).Other than turning off the camera sound – phone is fine. But we still frustrated by the fact that we spent extra money (and time) on this item.
