Today Google announced their latest flagship mobile device, the Nexus 6. This is undoubtedly the Android phone that could usher in a new generation of mobile games for Android. Check out the chops on this beast of a device.
I don't buy my phones for gaming. And I really wish the Nexus 6 was a refreshed Nexus 5 with a similar sized screen. This might be the first Nexus I pass on in years.
I'll be passing on it as well. 6 inches is ridiculous IMO. I can do 5.3 inches and thats my limit. The HTC M9 will be my next phone.
Was excited for the new nexus but will pass as well. Now I'm leaning towards the Xperia Z3. From all the reviews it has killer battery life and well remote play will come in handy.
I'm looking at the rumored GSM version of the Droid Turbo. Basically the same specs as the Nexus 6, but smaller screen, larger battery, and more RAM. So actually kind of significant differences, depending on who you ask.
Agreed. It's FAAAR bigger than I need and I'm flat out not paying $650 for a phone (I don't do contracts). Sticking with my trusty Nexus 4. It'll be getting Lollipop anyway, so I'm good.
Same here. Going for 4.95 to 5.96 is crazy. Frankly speaking the Galaxy Note is a better phone with it's built in functionality in this space. Everything else with this size like the iPhone Plus is simple huge for the sake of being huge.
DDR4 is good for gaming. The Nexus 6 is good for watching movies on the go. Was very interested in the Nexus 6 until I just found out LG will not be the manufacturer but instead Motorola.
DDR4 is irrelevant. How does that relate? I don't buy my phones for gaming. Every phone available is good for watching movies on the go. Motorola makes just as good hardware, if not better quality, than LG.
It's not the specs that hold phones back as serious gaming devices. It's that Touchscreens suck as gaming countrollers. And battery life. With many phones it's a struggle making the charge last as long as you need it. You don't want to burn through the charge by playing something as power hungry as gaming.
im lost.... if anything the xperia z3 would be the gamers phone
come here to say the same thing! "Xperia Z3 is good news for gamers" there, fixed!
I'm still loving my nvidia Shield. Cell phones are not even a factor in my gaming.
If gaming ever shifts to mobile as the main platform I'm quitting.
How is it that a mere phone can cost more than an Xbox One, yet it has less capabilities than the Xbox One?
phone makers make money off hardware but consoles and handhelds depends on software sales.
i might stick with my nexus 5 and rock that android L
I am leaning toward the Droid Turbo with its kickass 3900mah and turbo charger which gives 8 hr of battery life in 15 minutes. It is also pretty much samed spec'd as this whale
