Oct 23, 2015 | A review of the Nexus 6P

I’ve had the Huawei-built Nexus 6P for two weeks now and I feel like it’s just enough time to get a good handle on the device and whether or not it’s the device you might want to buy. I haven’t read any other online review of this, though I’ve heard they’re fairly favorable.


My verdict? Not worth the cost.

At 74,800 yen, or a tad bit over $600 in today’s exchange rate, the Nexus 6P stands as the “flagship” phablet just slightly smaller than the one-year-old Motorola-built Nexus 6, now nearly $200 cheaper. It features a 3450mAH non-removable battery, vastly superior to its Apple counterparts. There’s a fingerprint sensor on the back, a metal case which gives it a premium feel, and a “periscope” for a camera and NFC sensor chip.


The wins

The losses

So what would I recommend? I haven’t tried the 5X, but I would think at a slightly cheaper price and smaller form-factor, you get a fairly good deal for a new and polished device. I would probably wait at least 6 months before getting a Type C device though, at least until the market can catch up with the peripherals. For now, I’m happier still with my Galaxy S6 Edge.
