Nexus 6p-erfect!

 

Apr 13, 2016 by Rou-D

I have been a dedicated nexus user over the years (Nexus 4, 5, 6 and 6p) and of all devices, this is by far the best. I have used the iphone 6 and the s6 edge plus, however the 6p stands out from the rest.

Design: The design is amazing, a very premium feel with the metal body, it fits perfectly in your hands and for a phablet, is comfortable. I find myself rarely ever needing to adjust my grip to maintain a hold of the phone. All buttons are easy to find and use and are easily distinguishable.

Sound: Sound on the 6p is what should be the reference point for phones. Ringtones and notifications are loud and can easily grab your attention. Music and speakerphone produce amazing sound, even at full volume. Headphones sound great on here, and when paired with an equalizer you can increase that quality easily by 100% making it a great device to listen to music on. Calls all sound great and clear.

Battery: From a full charge, I usually get up around 6:30am, It will last to about 10pm with a medium usage and the brightness up all the way. Battery can be fully charged in about an hour. My only gripe with the 6p is that with heavy use and brightness maxed, battery can drain quickly.

Software: The interface is stock google, and it's amazing. Everything is fluid and operates smoothly. Should you wish to root your device, Nexus phones are the way to go. I have been using the device for a couple months now and no slowing down or glitches in the system.

Camera: The camera is a HUGE upgrade from the Nexus 6, the 6p is quick and accurate, taking perfect pictures in a quick and fluid movement. The colors in the pictures do come off a little warm at times but overall the camera and quality are amazing.

Signal: The signal is great, I have never dropped a call in the time I have been using the phone, however data did take a little hit as I work in an area that does not have a whole lot of LTE coverage. Aside from that the phone is always quick and calls are always crystal clear

Excellent Pure Android Experience and Terrific Camera

 

Feb 18, 2016 by brooose

From my perspective, there isn't a better value than the Nexus 6p. I got the 32 gig black version and it is beautiful. The metal body is both aesthetically please and gives the phone a nice build that screams quality. From a user experience perspective, the phone is fast and responsive. There are no lags at all. The Snapdragon 810 processor is zippy and I have not had any overheating or throttling of the processor despite being a heavy user. The battery life is good. It is easy to root and unlock the bootloader, if you like to tinker. The Nexus line is really built for those of us who like to mess around but this Nexus is great for anyone. The camera, which has been the bane of Nexus phones of the past, is outstanding and on par with the Galaxy S6 plus. Not only do outside shots look great, low light photography is also very high quality on the 6p. As to the previous reviewer who had concerns about how the 6p worked with Exchange mail, I do not agree. I have work Exchange mail and calendars that work fine with the GMAIL app. If I didn't like that, I could use K9 mail or any of a dozen other exchange email apps available on Google Play that would easily address his concerns. Don't let his over concern about exchange or his other irritations sway you. The Nexus 6p is easily the best Nexus ever and it is easily as good as any of the ranking flagship phones today (S6, G4, V10, Note 5 etc).

Best Android at the Moment

 

Dec 10, 2015 by Amd24

Pros
-extremely fast
-camera is just as good as any phone on the market.(had the note 5 and do not see a difference in either one except Samsung's overly enhanced color)
-fingerprint scanner is the best on the market. Works every time.
-screen is crystal clear. IMO not as good as the note 5 but very very close.
-at $500 you can't beat it compared to other phones.
-size of the phone is perfect and love the design even though design is not a must. Functionality means more to me.
-phone calls and signal is great for me but I am on AT&T near St. Louis
Cons
-battery still is not up to par IMO(the best phone I have had for battery life was my iPhone 6 plus). The 6 plus some days would be at 50% at the end of the day while the nexus 6p will be dead.
-USB c does charge fast but it is very hard to find it still. Becomes a pain when you have to bring your charger everywhere.

Nexus 6P

 

May 16, 2016 by MarkW10011

Awesome phone. The best owned thus far. Had the Moto X, Samsung note 4, Iphone 6. This 6P is undoubted the best in the bunch. I'm looking forward to the release of the 5G model in the future. Verizon will roll out 5G in the next year.

Terrible choice for users of Verizon Wireless with Microsoft Exchange

 

Feb 10, 2016 by PJA_in_MA

The 6P is a terrible choice for Verizon Wireless customers who use Microsoft Exchange for email, calendar, etc. The only available apps that work with Exchange calendar and email services are Google mail and Google Calendar, to which one can add an exchange account. However, the Google apps are cumbersome substitutes for well-designed apps that vendors of locked phones have to supply in order to do business. Furthermore, there is no functional voicemail app that is compatible with Verizon Wireless. (try googing "verizon visual voicemail nexus 6p"). Thus unless you want to subscribe to a completely separate voicemail service, you have no way of accessing voicemail messages that you've removed from Verizon's call-in service. Finally, the highly-touted "do not disturb" function goes on at random times, which means you may miss important calls. (It works properly when the phone is in "safe mode", but as soon as you're running non-Google apps, you may well have a problem.) For me, this all turns out to be a waste of close to $600 and countless hours, because unfortunately, it took me past the "return for full refund" deadline to fully understand the nature and magnitude of the problems and the inconvenience I bought into with this phone.
