Google Nexus 6P Review

Enter the Nexus 6P, a rock solid phone that screams Premium – it makes more sense why they named it the 6P. First timer in the Nexus world, Google commissioned Chinese company Huawei to design one its latest Nexus phones...

I love how these iPhone arena wanna be journalists that make sweet love to their I turds at night are so "professional" they don't even proof read their articles for typos before they post them lol.

"First timer in the Nexus world, Google commissioned Chinese company Huawei to design one its latest Nexus phones. " should say "one OF it's latest Nexus phones." Proof better next time John V.

Cool, but now I'm torn between this and the Moto X Pure edition.

@John V., re: "it washes out tremendously to the point that it’s unusable unless we shield it." Your usability threshold must be unreasonably high. My old Nexus 6, which sports a dimmer display than the 6P, is quite usable and readable in direct sunlight in Sunny SoCal. Were you wearing sunglasses when you did your test?

Another user here posted this YouTube about the build quality of the 6P. Jerry rig everything discovered something. It's not pretty. The link is in the comment section of the Xperia Z5. I don't have enough posts to link yet.

Jerryrig didn't discover anything. He's a musclehead who bent a phone in its most vulnerable tiny spot. If you're going to bend a phone then it's going to bend, especially in a spot where it is vulnerable. These bending videos are ridiculous and idiotic at best. Ever since the uproar about the iPhone 6 bending people have purposely tried to bend their phones to have something to complain about. If you're going to bend a phone in a vulnerable spot then guess what, it's going to bend. It's hitting a car window with a hammer to see which one won't break... hint: if you are trying to break a car window it WILL break. It's not pretty? The ignorance displayed by people who believe this bending frenzy fabricated by people like Jerry to gain views is not pretty. If you bend your phone like a numbskull, don't be surprised that it is bent. He bent the HTC yet when was the last time a normal user bent that phone by accident rather than on purpose? What a joke.

PhoneArena writes doesn't seem to be interested in talking about new exciting and revolutionary feature called "reverse charging." I wish these people paid more attention at Google I/O then we would be less talking about this embarrassing moments.

I think its high time Google makes its own handset. I mean it should make its own hardware from scratch rather than using services of LG or Huawei.

Could you guys please retest your iPhone 6S battery scores? All other reviews only point it to being marginally better than its predecessor.

With my experience the button placement are in a horrible position. I've been accidentally shutting my phone off by swiping to text. Just by picking the phone up I've been hitting all the buttons. The buttons are just in the way.

Your phone ratings boggle my mind. This phone is nearly twice the phone that the Nexus 5 is and the Nexus 5 deserved the 9.5 rating it got. So why isn't this device rated at LEAST the same? And 8.8 makes no sense in this case -- at least when compared to other phones on the market.

Really Phone Arena is giving this phone 9.6 rating, sometimes better to believe user rating than the expert rating, hope they had some deal with google...

Yes it is the best smartphone of 2015 for its specs, performance and quick updates.

I cannot fault the phone. I've been using it for a week now and am happy with EXCEPT FOR ITS ONLY MAJOR FLAW. The camera gets confused and cannot focus on close objects. It loses its sanity and produces a sad blur. Now I year n to have my Edge 6+ and my Z5 Premium back!
