Review: Google Nexus 6P

Hardware Software Wrap-Up Comments  

The Nexus 6P may be $120 more than the Nexus 5X, but that is money well spent. In this case, the 6P solves all the problems evident in the 5X with only a few drawbacks.

The 6P is a fine handset from Huawei, thanks to the metal design, fine build quality, and solid spec sheet. The screen is great, battery life is better than average, signal performance is on track, and voice quality is at least on par with other AT&T phones. More importantly, the Snapdragon 810 crushes the 5X's 808 and delivers a significant upgrade in terms of speed and camera results.

Perhaps the biggest knocks I can make against the 6P? It's large-ish, heavy, and $500. That's not complaining much.

AD       article continues below...

Android 6.0 Marshmallow is the 6P's best feature — although Marshmallow isn't exclusive to the 6P. Google's latest operating system performed flawlessly on the 6P, and the Nexus Imprint fingerprint tool is great.

I truly believe the Nexus 6P is worth the $499 asking price. Huawei and Google did a fine job in crafting an appealing handset that moves the Android bar a notch higher. If you want a Pure Android experience on a great piece of hardware, the Huawei Nexus 6P is definitely the way to go.
