    See other variants reviews Score: 79.6 / 100

Google Nexus 6P is an impressive phone launched in 2015, counting with a big size 5.7" multi touch screen, a high speed 2000 megahertz CPU, and 2 cameras, a 12.3 mega-pixels back camera and an 8 mega-pixels front camera.

Google did an amazing optimization job making this cellphone as lightweight as 6.28 oz. This cellphone is quite a compact phone, given that it packs a 5.7" display and it is only 6.27" long and 3.06 inches wide. This cellphone is extremely thin and practical, with a thickness of just 0.29". This phone is sold in three colors, black, gray and white. Talking about its construction quality, the Google Nexus 6P is mostly made with aluminum.

Google equipped the Google Nexus 6P with an absolutely amazing 5.7 inches screen, and a 2560 x 1440 (Quad HD / 2K) resolution, giving this cellphone a high level graphic quality. This screen uses AMOLED capacitive technology, and can detect multi touch gestures.

Google ships this cellphone with a very powerful processor speeding at 2000 megahertz, included in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 MSM8994 system chip and a large 3 GB of RAM memory. This cellphone comes with a 128 GB amazing internal storage and even though it doesn't have a slot for an external memory card, it is still enough to store tons of applications, games, pictures and videos without even thinking about running out of space.

This phone is equipped with two cameras, a 12.3 megapixels back side camera and an 8 MP front side camera. the Google Nexus 6P's back side camera has a maximum 2 aperture so it can shoot sharp photos even in low light conditions. It is also able to film videos in 3840x2160 (4K) at 30 fps. Additionally, this phone's camera also features some good characteristics like face detection shooting, flash and geo tagging.

This phone features a large 3450 mAh non-removable battery that can keep this device running for several hours and even reach the end of the day without having to charge it. An issue to consider is that this cellphone's battery is non-removable so you can't change it when it begins to lose capacity, though having 3450 mAh you will probably discard this cellphone before it becomes an issue.

The Google Nexus 6P provides wifi connection (although it can't provide it to other devices acting as a mobile hotspot), LTE-A 4G , the fastest connectivity and fast 3G connection type, using HSPA and EDGE technologies. This cellphone works with a SIM card for GSM carriers and it can use both GSM and CDMA carriers.

The Google Nexus 6P also features a handful of cool characteristics such as NFC (to trigger actions, transfer data or make payments by holding your device close to another NFC device or tag), Bluetooth (provides communication with other bluetooth devices, computers, and accessories) and GPS Localization, and lots of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

This device is being sold for around 760 dollars, a really high price for this type of phone. It doesn't matter whether you want a cellphone for work, want a phone to play games, will use it as a social phone or want it to take tons of photos, you will probably be very happy with this cellphone.
