    Get both. Nexus 6 will be pure google. opo will be cyanogenmod. Two different but related animals!

    Well according to the leaked specs, the moto s "shamu" is gonna give the OPO a run for its money. The nice thing about a nexus device is it backed by google. But I'm the case of the OPO its backed by cyanogenmod which is just as good! It really comes down to hardware quality.

    Well, it also depends on the time frame which updates are released since CM updates might be a tad slower

    True, but they are pretty timely with them. Omni ROM had a KitKat ROM out for my note 2 before my friend got the KitKat update on his N4. And now that CM is a company, I'm sure they will have their A game on to push them out.

    the question is strictly hypothetical since none of them are for sale
    Get both, I know I will

    Technically speaking the OPO is for sale, just being rolled out differently then google or apple and their crazy line ups.

    Ultra noobie question : is 1+1 under Oppo? I thought they are different companies eventhough the founder was an Oppo manager

    To my knowledge, they are different companies. It would be stupid for them to have their own company as a rival. 1+ was made by designers who left oppo and wanted to make their own company. They teamed up with CM for the software.

    Let's see specs and price N6.

    Til then its Nexus 5 as best 5" and OPO as best 5.5". I really doubt N6 will be as low cost as OPO and so its classic specs vs price.

    Of course N6 will be higher specs because it is later.

    The moto s is gonna be backed like a nexus but not branded nexus. Google is also looking into rolling out the modular smart phone, project Ara.

    Nexus 6 will be very interesting especially if it has a micro SD port with the ability to put in 128 mb card

    If google has any say, it won't have one. Google has a huge hatreted towards SD card slots cause they are another variable the developer has to account for. They can be unreliable, which is why google refused to put them in the nexus line. That is also why apps can't store to the SD in Kitkat

    the Nexus 6 looks sexy from the lone pic I've seen and like the 5 when I first found out the specs its sure to please. I'm so ready for an upgrade though. time will tell.

    That's what I mean, but you can only get one if your the CHOSEN ONE *the sound of rainbows dancing and unicorns naying in harmony* . With the rest, its a fight to the death for the initial batch and then you just wait it out and try to snag one when the stock is replenished.
