When it originally began, the Nexus program was a Google adventure to help developers get their hands on hardware that was best suited for the latest and greatest version of the Android software. The devices were very cool, elite, and expensive. Expensive mostly because they couldn't be purchased with subsidized contract prices from carriers. As the years pass though, Nexus products reduced in price while remaining high in standards and quality.
The Nexus series is owned by Google, but Google doesn't make their own hardware. So they would partner up with a manufacturer such as HTC, Samsung or LG. The plan was to take one of their top of the line phones, tweak the hardware a bit, and then match it up with the perfect Android software. The first was the HTC Nexus One which was first released in January 2010. Five more iterations later, and today we have the Motorola Nexus 6. My friends over at AT&T let me borrow one for a few weeks and take it on a test drive. I'm ready to bring you the Nexus goodness in the package. And some unexpected lows as well. Stick with me to learn more.
