Google unveiled the Motorola-built Nexus 6 on Wednesday. It takes a lot of the design cues we saw introduced on the Moto X (2014), which we’ve already reviewed, though it also sports a more pure version of Android, a larger display and more.
The Nexus 6 offers a larger 6-inch display with a sharper resolution and some other distinguishing features that set it apart from the Moto X. There are some things that we can’t really highlight in a spec comparison, like the Moto X’s Moto Maker options, but we can also show the primary differences between two of Motorola’s latest smartphones. Check out how the two devices compare in our side-by-side spec comparison tables below.
Which one has your eye?
