Google recently unveiled its newest smartphone, the Nexus 6, and it's the company's largest phone yet. It comes with a massive display that's even larger than the iPhone 6 Plus'.

But the Nexus 6 isn't just Google's biggest phone; in fact, it marks a few important firsts for the Nexus line. It's the only Nexus phone that will be released widely across all major US carriers rather than just the Google Play Store.
