I'm struggling with a number of missing features like badges. And I was just remarking to a friend of mine that it seems that between the different Android phones there is a different level of user comfort. My father who was long since a programmer and now retired generally speaking is very happy with his LG. Buying into the Samsung mobile life style is similar to the Apple lifestyle and then the applications user interfaces are curated. However using a naked Nexus 6 gives me the feeling I'm driving a soap box and not a Ferrari. My Nexus 6 needs to have a little more battery life and overall I better feel.
The first reason for a 6 inch screen is to have more detail. Displaying content at a different magnifications is less useful and my experience.
