Features and Design
The 5.7” AMOLED display phone, protected by Gorilla Glass 4 has flat back comes with slightly tapered edges can be held comfortably with single hand. The power button and volume rocker sits on the right hand side so closely. The reversible USB-C port is on the bottom side, while the headphone jack sits on the top. Though there are no conspicuous color variation, the two available colors include Aluminum Gray and Graphite Black.
If you are fond of big screens, you would love Nexus 6P. The 5.7”screen with a resolution of 2560X1440 provides better brightness, contrast, viewing angles than Nexus 6 with Adaptive Display Functionality. The finger print sensor is on the rear side though you may find it a bit difficult in the initial days, but you will get used to it over a few days.
The Nexus 6P has Android 6.0 Marshmallow; for better performance and to tackle battery drain, you can download the beta version of Android Nougat. Though some of the apps, do not work on this version, and if you are using those pretty much, you need to stay with Android Marshmallow. Nexus 6P resembles the Stock Android and features Google apps- Gmail, maps, drive, photos, you tube, hangouts to name a few.
The Nexus 6P is powered by Snapdragon 810 v2.1 Octacore processor backed by 3GB RAM and an onboard storage of 32GB expandable via MicroSD card. It is quite fast though you may seem a bit of holdup while using some apps. Battery stays up to a day and a half when you have not put it to intense use, but if done enough gaming or shooting 4K video, you can expect battery drain within a few hours after recharging.
Though Nexus 6P lacks optical image stabilization offered by other flagship phones of its range, it’s definitely a good performer in low light conditions. This 12.3MP primary camera capable of capturing 1.55 micron pixels is designed to work better when bright lights are absent. The 8MP front facing camera for selfie with 1.4 microns is also adept in taking sharp photos.
With a big battery power of 3450mAh, much bigger than many other phones of the same category makes Nexus 6P worth buying. Though it drains out during heavy gaming or shooting 4K video, turning on adaptive brightness (display settings) would help lengthen the battery life of Nexus 6P.
