1. Nexus 6
Coming in at a whopping 5.9-inches, the Nexus 6 boasts a display larger than both the iPhone 6 Plus and Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4, it’s also, not surprisingly, the biggest Nexus phone ever. Size aside, Google’s new flagship is a great showcase for the new Lollipop OS, which finally makes Android pretty with a bevy of swish animations, beautiful apps and a new design direction called Material Design. Made by Microsoft, the Nexus 6 is in many ways an XXL Moto X, though the internals have been souped up. There’s a Snapdragon 805 processor running the show, backed up by 2GB RAM and the display is QHD, so it should look stunning. There’s a 13 meg snapper on the back and Motorola has included a new Turbo Charger to give you 5 hours of juice with just a 30 minute charge.

2. LG G Watch R
LG’s second attempt at an Android Wear toting smartwatch is a rugged looking thing, boasting a fully circular display and a design that actually looks like a watch. The screen itself is 320x320, there’s a Snapdragon 400 processor running the show paired with 512MB RAM and 4GB of internal storage. You should get a full day of use before having to juice up, but you still need a pesky adaptor to plug it in as there’s no wireless charging here.
