Google Nexus 6P Review – Still Going Strong
We have to admit that the Google Nexus 6P has been an amazing phone upon its release. However, now it’s long gone, and it truly is a pity, since Google killed it and along with it the entire Nexus series. At the same time, the entire market lost the possibility of having a Google phone with a reasonable price for everyone. Yes, we still have the Google Pixel and Pixel XL, but they’re not that reasonably priced.
Performance and Design
Regarding the design, it is important to mention that there was a big change in the size of the phone, compared to the other devices in the series. The manufacturer was a new one, with Google replacing Motorola with Huawei. The design is quite obviously made by Huawei, with an all-metal chassis and chamfered edges. The back is slightly curved, giving an overall elegant design.
One issue that posed some problems for many users was the fact that Google offered only a USB-A to Type-C converter, when it would have been easier to include a USB Type-C to USB A one.
The phone runs on an octacore Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, paired with 3 GB LPDDR4 RAM. The screen is 5.7-inches large, with a resolution of 1440×2560 pixels. The ppi is 518, and the screen is an AMOLED one with Gorrilla Glass 4. The front camera is an 8 MP one, while on the back you will find a 12.3 MP snapper with dual LED flash.
The best part is that you had the chance to choose between 32, 64 or 128 GB internal storage. There is no memory card slot to expand the memory, unfortunately. It runs on the Android Marshmallow OS and it uses a 3,450 mAh battery. The weight is 178 grams, while the size is 78×7.3×159 mm.
