The new Nexus appears on Amazon with a 50 Euro discount
Google’s new Nexus 6 is now on sale on the Amazon shopping platform. Until now it was only sold on Google Play, the 5.96-inch phablet comes with a price reduction of about 50 euros. The price of the terminal manufactured by Motorola at Amazon is 599 euros , taking into account that in the search engine store we can buy it for about 649 euros.
Both Google and the Amazon platform will have the terminal available in two colours: midnight blue and cloud grey. Although on the popular online sales site the starting price of the phone is set at about 599 euros, it may vary somewhat, but this should not worry anyone because Amazon is committed to reporting the price change and they will be able to pay the price that is lower . Furthermore, we know that mobile phone operators will market it by offering interesting price discounts when purchasing it with a tariff.
The Nexus 6 is one of the few phablet to incorporate the Snapdragon 805 processor, a 2.7 GHz quad-core processor. The almost 6-inch AMoled screen with 2k quality, or what is the same Quard HD (QHD), the phone has a 13 MP rear camera with optical image stabilization. It contains 3 GB of RAM and two modes of internal storage: 32 GB or 64 GB. Amazon will only sell the smaller capacity model in principle.
But the most interesting feature and that many followers are waiting for this phablet model created by Motorola and distributed by Google and Amazon is that incorporates the new operating system of the company Montain View, Android 5.0 Lollipop. We will have to wait several weeks to have in our house the last Google phone, which according to the website of Jezz Bezos will arrive in Europe on December 15.
Encryption problems reduce the performance of the Nexus 6
As we have already mentioned the new Google phablet comes with Android Lollipop, which is a double-edged sword. Apparently some buyers have already protested about speed and performance problems, not only in the phablet but also in the Nexus 9, due to the memory encryption Full Disk Encryption. This type of encryption that adds security to the device and thus to the users’ information would be the cause of the slowdown that some users are suffering.
The problem is that this type of encryption cannot be disabled by Android users, making it impossible to avoid these problems until Google pulls out an update and fixes it. S according to AnandTech’s technical team, this problem is very serious as the performance loss is up to 80%. According to the data the Nexus 6 has worse performance than the previous model of the Nexus range. According to these analysts, the solution is that only users who have the pre-Android Lollipop version and have upgraded to the fifth version of the operating system can disable encryption, which does not seem to solve the problem for many and will have to wait for XDA developers to allow the disabling of encryption in future updates.
