I reviewed the #nexus6 
Phablet. It's the worst word, a word only spoken with an apology — or maybe with a proviso. "I hate saying this word, but it's the only way to describe this thing." But it's just a word. And like...

Gotta say, the only thing that has me on the fence about this device is the fact that they went with ntrig. Not sure how it works compared to a wacom digitizer but as an artist, this is particularly a main selling point.

Good Read, and ultimately agree with a lot of his complaints (hangouts, mediocre camera app, etc). 

Still, it's promising to see where the OS is going, and since a lot of this new stuff is integrated into the core OS/licensed apps (NFC stuff, Launcher inside of Google Search app, etc), it might mean that they'll be included on other devices as well. 

With their current licensing, not even the carriers can strip that stuff out without running into problems. And that makes things exciting.

Hi Google Plus. I tried to post a thing but apparently it's been like two years and I failed a little bit at first. I don't know how I feel about that. Not bad, I guess.

+Dieter Bohn the edit menu in Google+ is pretty simple to understand.

I guess that explains why your nexus5 "review" was so embarrassingly pathetic.


If you have so much trouble dealing with simple technology, why on earth is the verge letting you "review" devices?
