9 features that could have made the Google Nexus 6P an even better smartphone
After all the leaks and rumors, the Google Nexus 6P is now official. And it is looking like a pretty solid smartphone, right? Right? Sure, it does rock the show with its large, quad HD display, fast Snapdragon 810 SoC, promising 12.3MP camera, and metal construction, not to mention that it comes with the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box. But at the same time, the Google Nexus 6P could have been a much better smartphone, and we put together a list of features we wish we had seen on the handset's specs sheet.

Qualcomm doesnt make phones, so it is yet to be done.

Completely irrelevant. You claimed only "NASA" could develop such a solution to wirelessly charge through a metal chassis, implying that it was impossible. Qualcomm has made an solution and it's ready for implementation.

If they can put a lump of plastic at the top for the camera and sensors, they could do something similar for wireless charging.

Their excuse about the OIS just sound like an excuse. The first and only Nexus with SD Card was Samsung Galaxy Nexus

I do agree that everything on here would have made a better overall phone.

Great phone. But I change batteries regularly for work, slot SD cards for work. Some other company will suit these needs.

Although I may be a bit bias but why does Lumia 950xl seem to be the jack of all trades. Micro Sd card Check wireless charging Check Big Battery Check 20MP OIS new Pureview Check iris scanner Check. Just need apps damn you google. I also forgot removable battery Check

"Inducting that flow of electrons wirelessly through a metal barrier is kind of hard, you know." - This phrase is so outrageously stupid, you'd better delete it.

Well the Nexus 6 had OIS,, wireless charging, and nano coating for water resistance and people complained about price.

Not having 4GB of RAM and the lack of Infrared sensor are the two main reasons I didn't get this phone.... I'm tired of my lousy cell signal on my Galaxy Note 3, but I have gotten so use to using my phone as a remote, mainly out of necessity because my wife loses remotes all the time.... and I always future-proof my phones. That was the main reason I got the Note 3, because it was the only or one of the only phones that had 3GB of RAM at the time.
