    I feel like this is finally what everyone has been craving for a long time now. Let's hope there's a good battery in it, it looks like they went all out with the specs so cutting corners on the battery would be very disappointing.

    +11111 to development...I was crackflashing with these boys here every day ..Haha


    I'm okay with it ...I'd love sd card but I think it's not happening..either way I'm getting one ..

    Yeah ..ART should help with battery ..especially stand by time ...screen might be issue as Brandon mentioned with G3 battery ...but smaller screen might help ..

    I assume no SD slot....writers don't even address it any more - we are losing the war!

    Maybe in 12 more months we'll finally be able to order a la carte (I can dream, right?).

    Motorola products usually have good battery life. With the Moto X packing 2200mAh and the still slim Droid Maxx packing a large 3500mAh battery, I would expect no less than a 3000-3500mAh battery in the Nexus 6/Moto X+1.

    I think the X8 system helped a lot with that. But yeah, that would be a perfect size for me.

    on the move..

    the nexus 5 with its 2300 battery does pretty good. A nexus 6 with a 5.2 inch screen, an updated gpu and processor, and a 3500 mAh battery would be a "whale" as far as battery life is concerned especially with L and Moto rumored active display.
