    No sd card slot, no removable battery and too big screen. Definitely not for me.

    In that case, glad I could be of assistance

    Either way these look like good phones, shame about the no expandable memory and the price tag, cant justify moving away from my s4 just yet, its still runs smooth etc. Ill move to lollipop when cyanogen releases it for my phone

    Funny the back button is a triangle, home is a circle and menu is a square.
    Where is the cross?

    Anyway, they seem good but too big for me.

    My Nexus 5 is about the maximum size I can use comfortably as a phone. Anything over this is a bit too big for daily use.

    Also the price points are interesting:
    $649 for Nexus 6
    $399 for Nexus 9
    $99 for Nexus Player

    So much for cheap Nexus Phones..

    At some point I was considering maybe getting the next iteration of the Nexus phones, but I can't really say this new version interests me one bit so I'll probably just stick with my Moto G.

    I don't like this technology trend. Everything's gearing towards the cloud and online services. No expandable memory for the phones or USB port for the player? I've got a 1TB drive full of videos (only half of which are porn) and you want me to use Netflix?

    at the price point the note 4 seems a much better value then the nexus 6 (removable battery, microsd slot, wacom digitizer, fingerprint sensor, ir blaster, and a bunch of other things)

    Most of the people that want to use their own storage instead of cloud services are likely to be people capable of steaming their stuff from their PC.
