Google 6p Review
The Google Nexus 6p has a 5.7 inches display and it sits much comfortably in the hand, even though you’ll still observe its weight. The metal body offers a level of premium appeal to handset, and certainly makes it distinct from the plastic-garbed Nexus 5X. The 3,450mAh battery inside will suffice through an entire day.
The chrome circle is a fingerprint reader for unlocking the phone instead of a password or PIN. Its placing may seem a little strange in the beginning, but you will soon apprehend how neatly it fits below your index finger. A smart trick is how not to use any buttons to wake and unlock the phone; all you need to do is simply touch the sensor with the right finger and it unlocks and wakes up. You also get dual front-facing speakers on the front, below and above the display, while on the back a circular fingerprint scanner is constructed centrally. It is called the Nexus Imprint.
Google has built in fingerprint scanning smarts to Android Marshmallow, and it has made sure that the handset takes full advantage of this addition. At the base of the Nexus 6P, you’ll find a USB-C port, instead of the standard microUSB connector. It is the latest connection type for mobile devices, and it’s already been featured first on the OnePlus 2. It lets you to plug in your charging cable either way round.
The Nexus 6P has a 2GHz Snapdragon 810 octa-core CPU with 3GB of DDR4 RAM but it’s eventually still not as competent as the Exynos chipset of the Apple A9 or the Galaxy S6 or of the iPhone 6S. It’s what Huawei and Google have to work on right now. In Geekbench 3, the mobile scores 4424 points, parallel to the results of Sony Xperia Z5 and HTC One M9 .
Nexus 6P has a totally different camera compared to the other top Android phones. Instead of focusing on the megapixels, it has used a large but mid-resolution of 12.3-megapixel sensor on the rear, matching it up with a two-tone flash. Nexus phones have never had particularly good cameras but this one has a well-brought-up performance, but couldn’t produce great photos in low light, in spite of having optical image stabilization (OIS). Huawei has discarded OIS for the Nexus 6P and has minimized the resolution slightly bringing it from 13-megapixels to 12, but there’s nothing to worry, as it captures great photos.
The phone works effortlessly and, as it is the case with all Nexus products, the 6P’s software is completely free of visual customisation and bloatware; it’s pure Android, as accurately as Google deliberated it to be.
The Nexus 6P is no wonder the best Nexus phone till date. Everything Google could have done, it did. It has demonstrated how good Android can be and that an Android phone can even be enhanced than the iPhone. It is the most consistent Android smartphone to date which makes it a very strong case for being the finest smartphone available right now on any platform.
