Yes, it’s true, the Nexus 6 is now available to purchase, just in time for Christmas. Although, there is one catch – you can only buy it through O2 at the moment.
While our friends over in the United States of America have already been able to use Google’s new device for a little while, we were starting to feel a bit left out and while it is only O2 users at present who can now purchase it, it is believed that other networks will follow suit within a matter of weeks. Originally it was announced that the device would be available to pre-order and go on sale in the UK in November.
The Nexus 6 can be purchased for £499 for 32 GB and £549 for 64 GB through the Google Play Store and comes with a tempting six month free Google Play trial. However, purchasing the device through O2 before December 18th will see you receive the actual handset for free once you sign up to a tariff.
When it comes to what to expect with the Nexus 6, we can tell you that it is a very sizeable handset and the six inch screen is definitely a great selling point and has actually seen itself being compared to Apple’s iPhone 6 Plus.
The fact that it is actually the first smartphone to be created with Android 5.0 Lollipop makes it the perfect device to experience all of Google’s newest operating system changes and will undoubtedly draw many to it.
At 3220 mAh, the battery is impressive and the fact that it comes with turbo charging is yet another bonus meaning that you can go for much longer than before with over 24 hours of use, according to Google.
Camera-wise we are looking at a 13 MP rear-facing feature, which offers optical image stabilisation, making it a very good camera, especially when compared to older devices.
