Nexus 6P Review

 

The Nexus 6P is one of the most anticipated Android handset of 2015. As the high-end “Google Showcase” handset, it is seen by many as having the most advanced Android software and features, along with high expectations for an excellent quality/price...

The Nexus 6P is a great handset, which brings a lot of value for the money. As the high-end Nexus handset it has been designed with a “Premium” feel and hardware that justifies its $499 price, especially since it often behaves like a $700 phone.

Google Nexus 6P Smartphone Review

 

Heavy Metal. Google's latest Nexus flagship 6P follows in the footsteps of the old Nexus 6 with its 5.7-inch display and the fastest SoC you can currently get from Qualcomm. However, there is now another rival from Google itself, the Nexus 5X, and it...

very good build quality, USB-C connector, fingerprint scanner, AC-Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2 & NFC, accurate GPS module, very good phone functions, sharp pictures in daylight, great display with excellent colors, Android 6.0 and direct updates from Google,...

but throttling under sustained load, no wireless charging, no video output via USB connector, battery integrated

Google's flagship Nexus 6P can impress in many respects. In addition to a powerful SoC, you get 3 GB of RAM as well as numerous current standards for wireless communication. Besides AC Wi-Fi with up to 866 Mbps, the smartphone also supports Bluetooth...

Google Nexus 6P review

 

Google has scheduled an event for October 4 at which it is expected to launch the next generation of its Android phones. Breaking away from the Nexus name, which has served as the company's in-house phone brand since 2008, the phones will be called the...

One of the first two Android 6.0 phones, Google's metal Nexus 6P has a sharp, high-resolution screen and a solid camera, an accurate fingerprint reader, loud speakers and works with every major carrier. Its lower cost makes it a good top-tier value buy.

It's big, a bit boxy and top-heavy, the fingerprint reader's position isn't always convenient and the 6P ditches the wireless charging of previous models.

The Nexus 6P doesn't have the most inspiring design, but when it comes to hardware prowess, value for money and Google extras, this best-ever Nexus is hard to beat.

The Nexus 6P sets the standard for every other Android phone.

The Nexus 6P is the finest phone Google has ever made, and sets the standard for every new Android phone that will arrive in 2016. For $100 – $300 more, you can get a , or – both of which have better cameras and comparable specs — but you don’t need...

The Google Nexus 6P Review

 

As we have come to know, Google has opted to simultaneously release two Nexus smartphone devices this year. Alongside the smaller form-factor LG Nexus 5X which we've reviewed a couple of weeks ago, we also find the larger Huawei-built Nexus 6P. The...

For regions outside of North America, and Europe especially, the Nexus 6P just seems an unreasonable device. Starting at prices from 649€, you would expect a device without drawbacks, and it’s simply not worth the premium over other devices, or at the...

Nexus 6P review: This is the way Android phones should be

 

Look out Samsung and LG. The best premium Android phone on the market is Google's own.

Best low-light performance of any Nexus camera ; Bright, beautiful AMOLED display you can see outside and at night without hurting your eyes

No OIS for the rear-facing camera

With its stellar camera performance and premium build, the Nexus 6P is the best device Google's ever commissioned.

Google Nexus 6P ( 32GB, frost)

 

And then the weighty, 5.7-inch Nexus 6P goes further. It adds a metal frame (a Nexus first!) and a crisp, high-resolution display; a spot-on fingerprint reader; a capable 12-megapixel camera; and strong stereo speakers. It also introduces China-based...

Review: Google Nexus 6P

 

It just works. It's a line we mostly use to talk about Apple, but it's really the story of the Nexus 6P. This is Google's new flagship phone, one of two it made this year to show the world just how good Android can be. It's the best hardware Google...

Proof that Google really cares about design! A Nexus phone finally has a great camera. Decent battery life, and crazy-fast charging. Now On Tap is a great idea

Now On Tap doesn't work that well. USB Type-C is great to use but hard to find. Android apps, generally speaking, aren't as good as iOS apps

The Nexus 6P is absolutely the best Nexus phone ever. Hell, it’s the best Android phone ever. And at $499 unlocked, it’s even cheaper than nearly all its competitors. Everything Google could do, it did. It proved how good Android can be—that an Android...

Google Nexus 6P (Unlocked)

 

The Google Nexus 6P is one of the best unlocked smartphones you can buy, thanks to a heady combination of powerhouse hardware, an excellent camera, a reliable fingerprint scanner, and the promise of the latest Android updates.

Excellent camera. Long battery life. Snappy performance. Attractive display. Loud speakers. Fast, reliable fingerprint scanner.

Frustrating Power and Volume button placement. Some software issues in need of polishing.

Conclusions Anyone who has used a Nexus device in the past has had to deal with compromises and cut corners. The Nexus 6 was too big and unwieldy, with battery life that wasn't up to snuff with its size. The Nexus 5 also suffered from mediocre battery...

Finally, a great camera ; Nexus Imprint ; Pure Android

USB Type-C not common yet ; Camera bump and plastic lines mar an otherwise great design ; Photo processing can be slow
