Is Nexus 6P a Viable Choice Further on the Road?
Last year Google launched its latest Pixel lineup. The arrival of these devices meant that Google wants to end the Nexus era. While the Android parent is slowly but surely doing its best to kill off the Nexus brand, one Nexus smartphone is still selling very well. Nexus 6P is the device we’re talking about. In fact, Nexus 6P used to be the best that Google had to offer until Pixel and Pixel XL were launched. Today we’re going to go over Nexus 6P’s specs and see why it is still a good smartphone choice despite its age.
Nexus 6P: Hardware Performance
Google chose Huawei to be Nexus 6P’s manufacturer and this proved to be a good choice. The smartphone is equipped with only high end hardware parts and this is what makes it still a viable choice this day. The smartphone actually brings a major improvement in terms of hardware performance in comparison with its predecessor Nexus 5X.
With that being said, let’s take a look under Nexus 6P’s hood and see what we can find. The smartphone is fueled by the highly powerful Qualcomm octa-core Snapdragon 810 chipset. The processor has been coupled with an Adreno 530 graphics processing unit and 3GB of RAM. Additionally, the device ships in the following storage space variants 32GB, 64GB and 128 GB.
Nexus 6P: Battery Life
Because the smartphone is quite big measuring in at 5.7 inches, Huawei was able to equip it with a huge battery. The large 3,450 mAh battery is one of Nexus 6P’s main selling points. The Chinese manufacturer has optimized the battery to last for multiple hours when put under heavy usage such as HD video streaming.
Nexus 6P: Price
Leaving the specs aside, this is what makes Nexus 6P so popular. One of Nexus 6P’s strongest points are that it can be acquired for the affordable price of $399. Keeping in mind that this smartphone is fitted with a large 5.7 inch QHD AMOLED display and an octa-core processor, this price is really impressive. Worth mentioning is that customers will also receive Google’s latest operating system alongside all of Nexus 6P’s specs.
