T-Mobile's Nexus 6 phablet comes with no carrier branding and no bloatware, as the company decided to listen to the customers who want their Google handsets as "pure" as they come from the manufacturer.

Unlike handsets coming from Samsung or LG, Google's Nexus devices are loaded with stock Android versions. On the other hand, Google Nexus handsets sold by various carriers are usually branded and loaded with various apps that most users never use. Fortunately for T-Mobile users, the company's Senior Product Manager Des Smith revealed the good news yesterday - "No Corporate Logo, No Bloatware, no crap you don't want on the #Nexus6 from +T-Mobile​," he posted on Google+.

As Google highlighted the Virtual Preload (VPL) capability on Android Lollipop, T-Mobile chose to make MyAccount available on the Nexus 6 handsets they carry. That said, Des Smith also made it clear that it is all up to the user, in the end - "we made MyAccount available if you want it… But you can totally delete it," he wrote.

T-Mobile currently sells the Google Nexus 6 for $649.92 USD (32 GB) and $699.84 USD (64 GB). These full retail prices can be paid in 24 monthly payments with $0 up front. In both cases, a SIM Starter Kit worth $10 USD is also required.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
