The Nexus 6 is Google's first stab at a true phablet, and it's a pretty good one. Despite its size, the phone manages to feel fast and responsive thanks to a top-of-the-line processor, a huge screen and Android Lollipop.

The Nexus is powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 CPU, which is found in powerhouse devices like the Galaxy Note 4 and Motorola Droid Turbo. It's paired with the Adreno 420 GPU and 3GB of RAM. The result is a phone that can handle all the work and play you can throw at it.

As for the design, the Nexus 6 is almost a dead-ringer for the second-gen Motorola Moto X (which Google owns), with its curved back and a branded M-dimple for Motorola. That's a good thing, because it looks great and feels comfortable in the hand.

While the Nexus 6 is no longer on sale, used units are available for a very reasonable price. The phone is also eligible for an update to Android 7.1 Marshmallow, making it even faster and more stable than it was when it first launched. If you're looking for a premium phone with a massive display, a beautiful operating system and seamless performance, look no further than the Nexus 6. It just might be the best phablet on the market today.
