Picking up a naked Nexus 6P in all of its glorious aeronautical-grade anodized aluminum will instantly tell you that this is no ordinary smartphone. Its aluminium uni-body feels sturdy and cool to the touch, with gentle diamond chamfers lining the edge of the smartphone, fitting comfortably in the palm of your hands. It comes in three different colors: an elegant Matte Gold, a striking Aluminium, and an extremely handsome Graphite black.
On the rear of the Nexus 6P sits the iconic visor that encircles the powerful camera. This visor is made out of the strong and durable Gorilla Glass 4, and sets the Nexus 6P apart from many other smartphones out there just through looks alone. Moving down the rear of the Nexus 6P, you will see its ergonomically placed Nexus Imprint fingerprint scanner, placed where your fingers will naturally rest when using the phone.
Google and Huawei's Nexus 6P runs on Qualcomm's Snapdragon 810 processor that grants the Nexus 6P immense power in terms of performance. Although the Snapdragon 810 is rather controversial due to many reports of it being overheating, the Nexus 6P suffers from no such issue – in fact, the processor runs rather efficiently. Its more than powerful for day to day usage and breezes through all of your mobile games with no problems.
The Nexus 6P packs a massive 3450 mAh battery that lets you go on and on throughout the day, texting, browsing, and whatever else. And when you need to recharge, just plug in the reversible USB Type-C cable for super fast charging, topping you off almost completely within an hour of charging. Your smartphone will actually keep up with you for a whole day for real now.
Google Nexus devices have always been at the forefront for the Android operating systems, and they act as a "reference" device of sorts. Nexus smartphones and tablets have always showed off the true power and innovation of the Android operating system, and are often the first Android devices to get the latest updates and versions of it.
The Nexus 6P ships with Android 6.0 Marshmallow, but will be able to receive the latest Android 7.0 Nougat as soon as it releases. This is one of the strongest advantages Nexus devices have over other smartphones, and these updates are not only to add functions or features – they are also a means to get security updates which can make your smartphone safer.
