Tablet, phone, phablet?

    Do I upgrade my Nexus 4 to another Android offering and sell my iPad 3 and get an Android tablet (can't be bothered with iOS these days), or just get a "phablet" (Nexus 6 when it's released)?

    I'm very indecisive.

    Umm, aside from the usual calling and texting... internet, music, YouTube, Netflix (in conjunction with Chromecast) social media etc. etc. occasional gaming if I'm on the train or something... that sorta stuff.

    Personally.... I'd go for a nexus 5 or moto x 2014, a 6 inch phone is HUGE compared with the nexus 4, although you might feel different after holding it (go hold an iphone 6+ for size basically).

    Not really feeling the 5 so much, maybe the Moto X, it's pretty much the 6 anyway. Would the 1gb less ram and slightly older CPU be that much of a difference compared to the 6?

    actually just had a thought... forget the x, grab the droid maxx (or was it turbo....) or as it's called in the UK the moto maxx, it's not quite out yet but it's basically a smaller nexus 6 with an extra large battery :)

    Ahhh I've heard about the Turbo but didn't know there was a UK variant. I'll check it out 😁

    Friend has an iPhone 6 Plus so I tried it for size. Didn't seem too bad. Kind awkward on one hand use, but great with two. Might be hard on the pocket though, something that size....

    I can't do it... I must not lower myself to comment on that.... I must act mature.....

    nah too big... moto maxx if/when it comes out in the UK :)
    Same specs, smaller screen, bigger battery... pretty much stock android (moto additions are good) :)

    Ohhhh haha Levi. I do like the Nexus 6... but would I get sick of the size after 6 months, that's the question. But it stops me getting a tablet too.... decisions. Alex, guessing it will get it, Motorola seems good at pushing updates to phones. Speaking of updates, Lollipop is available for my Nexus 4 :D. Not feeling the One M8, kinda old now.
