In experience the Nexus 6 is super quick. It is rocking a Snapdragon 805 Quadcore processor clocked at 2.7GHZ, 3GB of RAM, and is not bogged down with an OEM skin. It runs pure AOSP Android 5.0 Lollipop and should destroy any benchmark that stands in its path. The above video shows a pretty pathetic score for such a premium device when compared to the scores of similar devices like the Note 4. This could be a result of the enabled encryption which is reported to slow down the device a bit. This could also be a product of OEMs gaming the benchmark system. Like I stated earlier the Nexus 6 outperforms the Note 4 by a long shot in actual day to day use, so in the scheme of things the quadrant benchmark doesn't really matter.
