Huawei Nexus 6P Android Mobile About, Specification, Features, Rating


The Huawei nexus 6P is one of the last two devices made by Google under the much acclaimed Nexus branding, with the 5X being the other. Known for bringing the Android experience to the users in its purest form, the Nexus devices have always been the first ones to get all the new Google updates. Google has killed the Nexus lineup and replaced it with the Pixel and Pixel XL. The availability of the 6Pis dwindling fast, but even now it makes sense as a premium device to own if you like the pure Android experience.

Huawei Nexus 6P Features

1. Design

The first thing to note about the Nexus 6P is that it is a big phone. With a 5.7-inch screen, the Nexus 6P carries a bigger a display than most phones. The Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro or even the Nexus 6which have slightly bigger displays. This smart phone looks just as good as it is to hold, with an all metal design, a Gorilla Glass 4 ovary lay on the display, and nicely chamfered edges that scream quality in terms of build and design.

The design highlight of the phone is the entire back panel. Starting from the top, the Nexus 6P initially looks like it borrowed Robocop’s helmet visor. The circular fingerprint scanner, or as Google liked calling it earlier the Google imprint, also loess on the back. RATING: 6.6/10

2. Display

This pixel packed 5.7-inch AMOLED panel is a brilliant thing to have if you are a heavy video consumer. The 6p’s display is sharp, has rich color and even the blacks look quite deep. Yes, compared to the very balanced display of the OnePlus 3 or even the Nexus 5 of the bygone era, the 6P’s screen does tend to make the colors pop out a bit. AMOLED screens  known to retain the blackness and save a lot of power, and the NEXUS 6P’s display is also equipped with the Ambient Display mode-basically, all you have to do is wave a hand over your device, or pick it up. RATING: 7.8/10

3. Primary Camera

It is a 12.3 Megapixel shooter that comes with laser assisted phase detect autofocus. In most cases when we review a smart phone’s camera we start by writing about how good or otherwise the camera makes the subjects look like. The stock camera can quickly launch using the power button- a double click acts as the gesture to launch the camera app. The app is quite to respond, and so is the laser AF system.

Switching to HDR mode might solve this, but the HDR mode takes a lot time to process the images and get ready for the next shot. RATING: 6.8/10

4. Secondary Camera

The front camera on the Nexus 6P is a no frills 8MP unit, which is devoid of any newer features such as autofocus, a flash and shoots basic 1080p video. There is just a fair bit of lens distortion, and it keeps noise down in most shots. RATING: 5.9/10

5. Software

The Nexus 6P was first devices to run Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box. It was a very significant update for Android, as it was beyond just the cosmetic upgrade to Material Design. When the update first came out, it made life on Android way easier than before. The fingerprint scanner, dubbed as Google imprint, is quite fast, right up there with the iPhone 6s’s TouchID.

On the Nexus 6, Google Now was fun to use mostly because we have let Google have access to most of our interests. With most phones, we would usually hit the standby button or wave a palm over the screen. The Nexus 6P has now also been update with Android 7.0 Nougat, bringing in multi-tasking in split-window as well. RATING: 7.8/10

6. Performance

This smart phone the Qualcomm is Snapdragon 810 CPU, pairs with 3GB of RAM. With the advent of the Snapdragon 820 and now the 821 as well, the Nexus 6P cannot be expect to perform as well as the newer phones. The Octa-core 810 chip fared nicely in our gaming tests, while playing Asphalt 8 or Modern Combat 5, and while we did not find any lags or stutters, the graphics looked just a tad bit under locked.

We opened up many apps, including some heavy, memory-consuming ones such as Light room and Snapseed along with the gaming apps running in the background, and we did not see the 6P slowing down much in that process. It also heats up significantly while connected to a Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 compliant charger. RATING: 6.2/10

7. Battery

The Nexus 6P comes equipped with a 3450mAh battery a size that one would expect to have on a device with a larger display. A 30 min round of gaming on modern Combat 5 would see the charge drop by about 8%, and sometimes up to 11% while playing Asphalt continuously for a half hour. On the PCMark battery life benchmarks test, we got a work life score of 6 hours and 46 min. RATING 6.6/10
