Nexus 6 has a ‘hidden’ feature not seen on its specs list

Google’s homepage for the new Motorola Nexus 6 details its specs and lists down its notable features, but there might be something that they have missed – mentioning that the latest Nexus phone is water-resistant as well.


The official landing page for the Nexus 6 missed this rather important feature of the device. Thankfully, Motorola’s page included this information. According to their site, the Nexus 6 can withstand splashes of water just like the Moto X. Do take note that it’s just safe from splashes and cannot go for a full submersion like the Xperia Z3 (see our hands-on here). If you would check the website under the Water Resistant category, Motorola listed it down as “Yes” with no IP certification.

Google’s official site might not have found this info to be essential to its users thus eliminating the need to list it down. Although not fully waterproof, it’s still good to know that minor contact with water is repelled by the Nexus 6.

    Reviewers like you might have also missed Google’s reason. It is possible that reason why Google did not explicitly included it because people might mistake the feature for being complete water resistant like Xperia Z and submerge them in water. Thus, minimizing complaints when such case arises.

    Sus. This doesn’t mean anything. I’ve had my Nexus 5 splashed with water several times before and it still works fine. I think the same goes for any decent branded flagship device.
