The Nexus 5 (2015), or the Nexus 5 second generation is closing in and the phone will be soon available for purchase.
In line with the recent years, Google is expected to release the Nexus 5 (2015) sometimes in October. However, for those looking for a quality Google phone with stock Android, the Nexus 6 is a great option, probably even better than the next generation Nexus device. Here are three reasons why.
For those who want a phablet, the Nexus 6 is arguably the best on the market. Google will reduce the size of the display significantly on the next Nexus phone and rumors are that the Nexus 5 (2015) will feature a 5.2 inch display. Such display size is great for those looking for a compact phone. However, if your phone is an alternative to a tablet computer, the Nexus 6 is the better option. Simply put, the Nexus 6 allows you to do more tasks on a bigger screen.
The knock on the Nexus 6, when the phone was released was its price. The device was much more expensive than rival flagships and it hampered its sales. However, after several months, the price of the Nexus 6 is at affordable $499. Expect the Nexus 5 (2015) to cost somewhere around $700, which is much more than what many can afford. The price of the Nexus 6 shows a midrange device, but the specs are top notch.
The Nexus 6 sports a massive 3220 mAh battery. Currently, the battery capacity of the Nexus 5 second generation is unknown, but given the fact that Google will reduce its size and thickness, the safe assumption is that battery capacity will be the trade-off. This will lower the battery life, which is a huge aspect of the process of choosing a phone. The Nexus 6 guarantees you more than one day usage.
