I have had my Nexus 6 for about a week now.

It was a long adventure to get this phone. My first Nexus was a Sprint Galaxy Nexus, I then sold that and bought a Nokia Lumia 521 until the Nexus 5 came out. I got that in December of 2013. When the 6 was nearing release, I sold that, and used a Nexus One (which broke q.q), then a Samsung Galaxy Mini (q.q), an Optimus F3, and then an Optimus L90 before I managed to get this phone.

My best friend and I went to the store the same day at the same time to get the phone. Then we went to my house, unlocked the bootloader, rooted it, enabled tap to wake, and then installed Franco!

I'm loving this device. However, the battery life hasn't been super great. I tried Vomer tweaks to help.

Here's some history:

I found my battery improved a lot installing greenify and hibernating most apps it recommends.

I wanted a big screen nexus so I like it even if I prefer IPS LCD. Though I hate the vibrator moto use. I wished Samsung like vibrator. Moto one rattles when vibrate feels cheap also the speaker or audio circuit makes some noise like static noise during call from thr top speaker. All these problems existed thru 5 devices. I hope Google choose Samsung for next nexus.

Honestly I waited for the 64 GB version because if the phone lacks a SD card sloct, your stuck with the storage you have...
