The Nexus 6 with Android Lollipop and Verizon 4G LTE
6-Inch Quad HD screen, dual front facing speakers, and long lasting battery.
The Nexus 6 by Motorola is now available (March 12) for ordering online on the nation’s largest and most reliable 4G LTE network and will be in stores starting March 19. The smartphone will be $249.99 with new two-year activation or $27.08 per month for 24 months with Verizon Edge.
Customers who purchase the Nexus 6 before March 31, 2015 can get a 6-month subscription to Google Play Music All Access at no additional cost ($9.99 a month after trial). That means you can store the songs you own and also stream from a library of more than 30 million titles.
Music streaming works best with three key ingredients – good speakers, battery life, and a reliable data connection. The Nexus 6 delivers all three with dual front-facing speakers for immersive stereo sound, a 3200mAh battery for up to 24 hours per charge, and Verizon 4G LTE network. You’ll do more dancing and less buffering. Nobody likes buffering.
The front-facing speakers sound even better when paired with the 6-inch AMOLED Quad HD display for multimedia. That means better gaming, YouTube-ing, Netflix-ing, Vine-ing, and Snapchatting with friends. With all the social media happening, you’ll want to share your own experiences and moments. The Nexus 6 has a 13-megapixel rear facing camera with optical image stabilization so your Instagram and Twitter profiles won’t be full of blurry pictures. And the 2-megapixel front camera is made for selfies.
The Nexus 6 also launches with Advanced Calling 1.0 capabilities, letting you enjoy HD Voice Calling to other compatible Verizon smartphones. Activating this feature also enables simultaneous voice and data use, so you can talk and surf the web at the same time.
