Nexus 6P Review – The First All-Worthy Nexus!

This is an opinion based review.


[dropcap size=small]T[/dropcap]he creator of Android would dependently want the ideal phone for it, so Google has the Nexus line up. Google has constantly wanted their users to have the pure, flawless and vital Android experience. Although  the Nexus devices have been the beasts in the flagship lands each year but they did miss the mark regarding certain elements that pushed them in reverse from other rivalry considerations. Certainly camera modules were the biggest issue previously, aside from the missing specs, the Nexus line up shoots up this year, bringing an all-worthy phone that was generally foreseen.

With the new Nexus 6P, Google brings what their customers loved the most, the satisfying high-end device that is comfortable to handle and afford. This time, Google partners with a Chinese manufacturer Huawei, intending to put the best android experience providing flagship for the year.

Nexus 6P brings a transformation over the design language. Huawei’s certainty over their premium outline knocks our socks off when we take a gander at the most delightful Nexus device ever, featuring a full metal unibody style with relatively flatter sides which destroy the hassle of slippery devices but rather provide a better grip and ease of handling.

Coming to the sides, all the buttons are placed on the right. Each button being well crafted, gives a tactile feel when pressed. The power button is contrastingly textured for simple distinguishing. On the bottom of the phone, resides a USB Type C port. This is the revolution is the USB technology that brings a better, well built and reversible cable.  It may yet be hard to discover USB Type C cabels all over the place as they are yet a new standard, acted less upon.

The front design of the phone is taken over by the wondrous 5.7 inch display. The top and the bottom are equipped with the stereo speakers that always feel the most comfortable. Another great addition is the Nexus logo being engraved in the metal body, on the back of the phone. Unlike the previous Nexus devices, where we have plastic inserts placed which can fall off effortlessly.

There’s the ergonomic fingerprint reader, lies on top of the premium feeling Nexus logo, outlined by a shiny circle. On the top of the phone, lies the big black protruding area (not much though), that looks exquisite. The camera includes a laser auto focus and a dual tone flash, no OIS in the house! The camera is quite impressive and does take some wonderful photographs. However, the Nexus logo and the shimmering and outlined fingerprint reader on the back make the phone look elegant than ever, it feels premium to a great degree in the hand, and simple to handle.

The Nexus 6P sports a whopping 5.7 inch AMOLED screen with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 that results in a pixel density of 518PPI. The display experience is nothing less than excellent, it’s has become a mark imprint for all top of the line phones to have a Quad HD screen, Nexus 6P brings a beautiful AMOLED screen that has high colour saturation. The sharpness levels and the extraordinary colours on the display with further profound blacks permit us to see the it in large amounts of contrast.

All things considered, the display is close to perfection, you guessed it, it has a minor issue however. The issue emerges while utilizing the Ambient Display. The Ambient Display that showcases important notifications and information in a minimal way, doesn’t toggle so very effortlessly. Apart from that, Google hasn’t introduced any support to gestures, it may have been an incredible consideration!

The nexus 6P upholds the standards of 2015 as accompanied by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chipset, clocked at 2GHz and supported by Adreno 430GPU with a 3GB RAM. It keeps up to the benchmarks of the 2015 that are set by the rest, Android 6.0 stock software of course plays a major role on the beautiful performance.

The Nexus 6P did function flawlessly while playing games, opening and closing apps and multi-tasking. All this fits in with the awesome processor that the Nexus 6P carries. The gameplay and videos look awesome on such a beautiful screen, the dual front stereo speakers play a big role in sound quality!

Nexus devices have always had the essentials over their hardware, avoiding the extra bulk, along with Huawei and Google partnership there’s a fingerprint sensor (now somewhat considered an essential) that’s placed at the back of the phone. This built-in feature of Android Marshmallow that Google dubbed as the “Nexus Imprint” is supported by the best-in-class fingerprint sensor by Huawei. The sensor is extremely fast and impressive! Additionally, it’s extremely simple to set the sensor up, doesn’t bug the users and it’s time saving. Apart from that, it also works for the new Android Pay!

[divider]Camera[/divider]

All that the Nexus line-up was falling back about was the camera. Well, this year there’s a positive change, the Nexus 6P brings a top-notch camera sensor that can take pretty good photos.

It sports a 12.3 MP main camera that let’s in a larger amount of light to capture better photos, kudos to the 1.5 micros sensor. Yes, the Nexus 6P does lack OIS (Optical Image Stabilisation) but this doesn’t harm the photos to a big extent, the effect is only seen while recording a 1080P/4K video. The camera struggles to take good photos in low light conditions, HDR is the most helpful effect in this condition. Well. the camera is not the ‘big boost’, it’s decent, it’s better, definitely it’s an improvement from the last year’s Nexuses.

Along with the camera, there’s the camera app. It lacks certain features compared to major competitions flagships. The camera app lacks manual controls and is a little bit laggy. The app is fast and excellent at taking images with HDR and HDR+ modes but yet the app is laggy.

Here’s MKBHD’s full video review


 

[alert type=green ]I am sure many of you would be confused about if I really tried out the device or not but let me ensure you guys that I did try the Nexus 6P myself, the review is solely my opinion about it. I am not allowed to share pictures/videos of the device due to some family reasons that I shouldn’t be sharing, thus, I’ve credited and used image resources from the web. Hope you understand and liked the review :). Thanks for being an awesome reader of TrueTech! :)[/alert]
