Nexus 6P: Specs

Google originally launched its Nexus series of smartphones as low-cost ways of getting a pure Android experience, at a time where every manufacturer and telco was doing everything in their power to "customise" the experience for their customers. The Nexus 6P has taken the low-cost part out of that equation, with Google working with Huawei to create a flagship smartphone with a massive 5.7-inch screen, rear fingerprint scanner and the promise of the most up-to-date version of Android at all times.

Nexus 6P: Buy outright

When it launched back in 2015, the Nexus 6P came in three storage flavours, with RRPs that put it on par with the flagship phones from Apple and Samsung. Well, maybe a little cheaper. Now that the phone is a year old, there are plenty of bargains to be had if you shop around.

Nexus 6P: Review

The Nexus devices were always designed to deliver an experience as close to Google's vision as possible. The big screen is offset by a massive internal battery, while the placement of the rear fingerprint scanner makes unlocking the device as natural as breathing.

"Running a 5.7-inch display with 2560 x 1440 resolution can be quite power-sapping, but the Nexus 6P’s 3450mAh battery is a good performer. In ad-hoc testing, we were easily able to get a full day’s performance out of the Nexus 6P, and two days is entirely feasible with careful management."

Of course, the phone is starting to look a little long in the tooth now, especially with the likes of the iPhone 7 Plus and Galaxy Note 7 available on the market. The decision to shift to USB C could also be a hurdle for accessory loving smartphone users.
