Nexus 6 Review: Don’t buy it

N6-moreeverything-1600

I recently got hold of a Nexus 6 in order to familiarize myself with Android. Its a great device in many ways but there’s one thing that had I known about previously would have made me not buy it.

It’s this: the back is not flat.

I’m very often at my desk with my phone flat on the table beside me. Or possibly just using the phone. Because the back is curved this means that tapping pretty much anywhere on the screen jiggles and wobbles the phone.

That’s just bad design.

Android is another matter. I’ve been quite impressed with some of the Google integration features so far. Need more time to form a proper opinion.

  1. Saying to not buy a phone just because it’s not flat on the back and you are used to use it on your table seems a bit excessive, don’t you think?

    I have a Nexus 5, it’s flat, but i never use it on the table. The software is great though and the integration with Google is amazing.

    I’d definitely buy it again, flat or not.
