My guess is that where we would notice the bigger difference is in the apps that gets launched. Take for example Google Camera. Last update for arm was in december. Now the later updates are only for arm64. In future we would need to rely on alternative apps as 32bit won't get updated. (I'm looking at Google and not at other developers). My hopes are that someone takes on the aosp apps and updates those. Then again, it's probably easier to buy a new phone than going trough all that hassle.
On a side note, my new battery arrived this morning. Itching for the evening to come when I'm home and my children are asleep. After I have swapped the battery, I'll flash the newest build. Hopefully I can give some feedback before Friday comes.
Yeah, that's what I'm afraid of. I'm hoping someone at some point will port the 4.4 camera over to 32bit but 4.2 is still great for taking pictures.
We'll just have to wait and see. All I can say is that it will be hard leaving the Nexus 6 once development dries up (just like with the Galaxy Nexus) though this phone stands to last a lot longer since our specs are still decent. I'll definitely be interested in seeing what the pixel 2 XL has in-store but I'll be staying with the 6 for at least another year no matter what.
