Description

For the first time in Google's Nexus line history, Huawei managed to join the exclusive club of poster child Android makers. Being the more premium (and more expensive) of the two 2015 Nexus phones, the Google Nexus 6P comes clad in a metal chassis, with 5.7" WQHD display, stereo speakers at the front, and a round finger scanner on the back. The Nexus phones usually don't come with a premium build, great camera and large battery, but the new Nexus 6P shatters all stereotypes here.
