PhoneArena readers aren't too bothered by the hump of the Nexus 6P

The hump on the Nexus 6P is a horizontal strip that starts with the camera and ends towards the right edge of the device. This symmetry means the phone won't wobble when put on a table (unlike the latest iPhones, for example), but it's still arguably unsightly. Emphasis on arguably, which gets us to our yesterday poll: Does the hump bother you?
Over 2,600 people voted, and the vast majority (48.99%) aren't bothered by the hump. The other two options on the poll came out with near identical vote counts, with people who find it unappealing getting 25.65% of the virtual ballots, while another 25.35% reserving their right to an opinion until after they've had the opportunity to handle the 6P.
For what it's worth, we're with group numero uno. We don't mind.

Being an ex Nexus 6 owner, these 2 successors are (to me) probably the worst designed Nexus devices, ever. Not elegant or minimalistic at all, something that Google so obviously strives for in all of their products. In my opinion, both, LG and Huawei, failed miserably in delivering a good looking (premium) device. Front sides are more or less ok, as there is not much room for playing. But back sides on both devices are terrible. 6X looks like some device from 4 years ago, while 6P is some hybrid of BlackBerry Classic and refrigerator. I will most certainly pass this years Nexuses, going for Xperia Z5 premium or compact. And to all other people wanting the Nexus device, you better go for Nexus 6. You can get it now for very affordable price, and you will get an amazing looking device with beautiful screen and specs.

Barely noticeable. i first didn't care about the nexus 6p as i heard that it being made by Huawei. but after seeing the hands-on video i am pretty impressed by the phone.

Definitely looked much worse in leaks, like it has a prominent bulge at the top. We called it a medical scanner of some sort. After seeing press photos and hands-on video, it's really quite mild. I wouldn't call it pretty by any means, but I think it's a more elegant handling of a camera hump than what we see on this year's Galaxy S/Note or the iPhone 6.
