When we talking about Nexus 6P, we know that Brand is Google's flagship Android phablet for 2015, but with a 5.7-inch display and very cheaper price it won't stretch your hand or your pocket quite as far as last year's Nexus 6.
It’s time for Nexus! is back with its seventh generation in five years, but the Nexus 6P isn’t like any Nexus you’ve seen before – it’s better. Much, much better. The Nexus 6P is Google’s first no compromise addition to its much loved but niche range and it hints atheigtened hardware ambitions which could shake-up the entire smartphone sector.
The 'P' in the Nexus 6P's name stands for 'Premium', thanks to its all-metal unibody design that's meant to rival the aluminum iPhone 6S Plus and glass-and-metal infused Samsung Galaxy Note 5. It's the bigger and more sophisticated-looking version of the Nexus 5X.
Without further i do, let’s find out if the Nexus 6P is everything Google envisioned when they set out to create it – a premium device with awesome display, powerful camera, and long-lasting battery.
I’ve owned every Nexus and none could be labelled luxurious. For better or worse, luxury simply wasn’t a consideration, but with the Nexus 6P that changes. Made in partnership with Huawei, the 6P drops the plastic and glass builds of previous models for an aluminium body that’s chamfered to within an inch of its life.

Huawei and Google nailed this design. When the first leaks took place, and we thought the device was going to have a major backside hump, I was nervous. I don’t like humps or huge bumps on phones. I want them to rest flat on a surface with no wobbling. Once the design was officially known and we got hands-on time with it, it quickly became apparent that the backside of this device would not be an issue. While there is a minor hump or lift on the back at the top, it’s nothing major. And from some angles, it’s not even noticeable. The reason for this hump is the camera. The sensor used in the 6P and 5X was originally designed for point-and-shoot cameras, so it’s rather large.
We're surprised that Google has partnered with HTC to manufacture the Nexus 9, but the tablet is easily one of the most appealing and well-made Android tablets around. At just under 8mm thick, the Nexus 9 isn’t the slimmest tablet available – the Air 2 and Sony Xperia Z4 are noticeably slimmer at 6.1mm – but it is incredibly light, weighing 425g. There's also a brushed metal trim around the edge, which is polished to a silver gleam along its top edge, while the rear casing comes in black, white or sand, although the latter shade is only available on the 32GB model to give it a degree of exclusivity.
|Nexus 6P build quality matches anything from Apple or Samsung|
Its dimensions are 159.4 x 77.8 x 7.3mm, making it just one tenth of a millimeter taller than the Nexus 6, but notably narrower and thinner than last year's measurements of 159.3 x 83 x 10.1mm. My overly stretched, phone-wielding hands appreciate this change.
The Nexus 6P colors keep it simple with Aluminium (gray), Graphite (black) and Frost (white). Want to customize or protect it? Google has already rolled out multiple cases.
But the Nexus 6P price is down, and the specs have been upped just enough to make this a cost-effective Android contender for our best phones list. Here's how it fared in my testing.
Specs and Performance
As the “flagship” Nexus device, simply meaning it is the one with the higher price tag and more premium build materials, the Nexus 6P comes equipped with great specs, all of which should leave any vanilla Android fan happy. With a score of 4,073, it's plenty faster than the HTC One M9 (3,595) and LG G4 (3,499), but trails the iPhone 6S Plus (4,418), Samsung Galaxy S6 (4,975) and Note 5 (4,849).
The device features a 5.7″ WQHD Active Matrix OLED (AMOLED) display, 64-bit Snapdragon 810 octa-core processor, 3GB of RAM, a range of storage options from 32GB all the way to 128GB, 12.3MP rear-facing camera, 3,450 mAh battery with fast charging, NFC, USB Type-C port, and of course, the latest build of Android with updates straight from Google.
On paper, there is absolutely nothing wrong with this device. It has the high-res display, a great camera (as evidenced by our Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P camera reviews), very large battery, and also brings a bit of the future with the USB Type-C charging and data transfer port. In my opinion, it is the most complete Android device you can currently purchase.

The Nexus 6P camera, along with the Nexus 5X, is the best of any Nexus phone, Google said to no one's surprise. After all, we've only seen subpar results from Nexus 5 and Nexus 6 photos.
What's different here is that the 12.3MP Nexus 6P rear camera captures 1.55-micron pixels, which is larger than the normal 1.4 microns. Translation? Bigger pixels and more light captured.
This allows me to take superior indoor photos, especially in low-light situations like restaurants, bars and outdoors after dark. I'm pleased with the results compared to older Nexus phones.
The Nexus 9 has a 1.6-megapixel camera on the front and an 8-megapixel camera on the back. Both lenses have an f/2.4 aperture. As far as tablet cameras go, it’s not too bad, but a fair distance away from the quality of the iPad Air 2's sensor. In our outdoor shots, the colours the camera produced were slightly muted, and images weren’t as sharp as we would have liked. There was also noticeable noise in the shadow details and some images came out slightly under-exposed.
The Nexus 9 is among the best tablets we've ever seen. The screen is wonderful, the battery life is fantastic and the build quality and design are very close to the very best from Samsung,Sony and Apple. If you're looking for a powerful Android tablet, nothing else even comes close right now, and at current prices, it's a real bargain compared to either of Apple's mighty iPads. It wins a Best Buy award
Let’s just go ahead and crown this thing and bring an end to 2015. Now, bring on the 2016 hype.
