    It seems like "pie in the sky" thinking that the Moto Nexus 6 might actually come to Verizon, but the rumors point to that. Do you believe them and are you excited about it?

    Not gonna happen, IMO. Verizon had their chance a couple of years back and made a total mess out of the launch of Google's flagship phone. Google was royally pissed and I don't blame them. Their response was to not offer their subsequent Nexus phones to Verizon and not offer a CDMA version period.

    I'm skeptical, at best. As already posted, Verizon botched the previous Nexus program and I just don't see Google willing to go through that again.

    On the flip side though, Verizon seems to have a pretty good relationship with Motorola with it's Droid line so who knows.

    Skeptical. It'd be great if they do carry it, but the way they carry out with OTAs it won't be a Nexus experience at all. They had their chance with the Galaxy Nexus and they royally screwed that one up from the beginning.

    It may be a Nexus, but that's it. You won't get the Nexus experience that it's meant to have, instead you'll get nothing but frustration due to the carrier.

    Well... Vzw has been carrying the nexus 7 4g tablet...perhaps they've cleaned up their act??? Idk.

    If they do carry this device.. I'll be conflicted.. Do I go after it or the Droid turbo.. The turbo is probably going to have a better battery... But until they're announced.. Who knows..

    While options are great, I'm glad I didn't have this many great devices to choose from when I decided to upgrade! For me it was between the One M8, S5 & G3 and that was difficult enough!

    tap'n on my S5

    <----- holding breath for CMD boot loader OEM unlock. It'll be a sneaky Verizon/moto trick without that.

    Same here. I am planning to get the Nexus 6. But because it doesn't have an SD card slot I need to root it, unlock the boot loader, buy a micro usb SD card reader, and mod the system to read SD cards. I just hope Google will not allow Verizon to lock the boot loader. Verizon has been locking down their phones for a long time. Verizon has been doing this since the Motorola RAZR V3 times. (I'm talking about the RAZR flip phone. Not the Droid RAZR phones). Verizon locked down the RAZR V3/V3M so that you don't put whatever you want on it. Verizon has basically been locking their phones before Android smart phones even came out. I'm talking about flip phones like the RAZR V3.

    In case you haven't had a Verizon phone since the Razr Flip phone, every device since said V3 has been rooted and the bootloader unlocked. Save for S4 & S5, which I might add still have root and roms via safestrap. If your only reason for not purchasing a device is a locked bootloader, perhaps you should rethink your actual smartphone needs.
    Having a locked bootloader on my S5 doesn't bother me one bit. I sure as hell don't miss flashing buggy roms every other week. Those days are long gone on today's flagship devices.
    I certainly wouldn't worry about this Nexus.....afterall.....It's a Nexus, it WIIL be rooted regardless of carrier.
