That’s true because Nexus 6 is using encryption by default while Nexus 5 running on either KitKat or Lollipop without encryption, of course. The encryption featured in Nexus 6 is really downgrading the performance of the handset. You can, on the other hand, disable the encryption but do it at your own risk.

Also, the encryption feature in Nexus 6 is not a handset feature alone. The encryption function is included in the new Android 5.0 Lollipop and this new mobile operating system runs the encryption by default. So, if you’ll be updating your Android phone to Android 5.0 Lollipop, you might end up with an encryption-enabled handset and you might be complaining later that your phone is now very slow.

I have created a guide that will allow you to disable encryption on Android 5.0 Lollipop but it is specifically for Nexus 6 only. You cannot do it on Nexus 5 even if it is running on Android 5.0 Lollipop. To see how to disable the encryption, please visit Is Your Nexus 6 Slow.
