Google Nexus 6P: What top web reviews say

There’s a lot to look forward to with the Google Nexus 6P. We compile the best reviews online to see what the hype’s about.


Google Nexus phones are known for being a great combination of software and hardware priced highly competitively enough for the kind of specifications they offer. This makes them highly anticipated critical darlings. With the Google Nexus 6P, the company has decidedly gone a different way, creating a phone that is being referred to as “premium”. The build, the hardware and software are all designed in a way that will make the phone worth its hefty price tag but has the company done enough? Designed by Chinese manufacturers Huawei, the phablet-like Google Nexus 6P might be one of the best top-end Android phones in the market. We went through top reviews to see whether the phone holds up to the hype or not.

Gadgette.com‘s Holly Brockwell is of the belief that the phone is an outstanding effort and shows off Android’s best features. She also likes the fact that the phone has front-facing speakers. Read her full review here.

The Nexus 6P has two front-facing speakers, which is always a good design decision. Speakers on the rear or bottom edge of a phone are much easier to muffle with your hand, whereas these are still strong when you put the phone down on a sofa or other sound-dampening surface.

Twitter user @Must_Hammad agrees:

Chris Velazco of Engadget is also impressed with the quality of the screen on the Google Nexus 6P. Check out the rest of his review here.

As mentioned, the 6P sports a surprisingly pretty 5.7-inch, WQHD screen. In case you haven't been keeping tabs, that takes the same number of pixels as last year's Nexus 6 and squeezes them into a slightly smaller screen. All told, that leaves us with a pixel density of about 518 pixels per inch, so it's no surprise, then, that text and detailed photos appear incredibly crisp; good luck trying to pick out individual pixels during your day-to-day routine. - Chris Velazco, Engadget

Nexus phones are known for running the purest versions of the Android OS. Nimish Sawant of Firstpost Tech believes that the phone’s hardware and software work very well together. Read his full review here.

The software complements the hardware well and we did not notice any lag or slowdown with the OS. The Android 6.0 Marshmallow works without any hitches on the Nexus 6P hardware. App switching, animations, time to first shot, gaming – everything just works quite well and there was no instance when were left twiddling our thumbs waiting for things to get done. - Nimish Sawant, Firstpost Tech

Twitter user @iammillzy also agrees with this point of view.

According to NDTV Gadgets 360‘s Ali Pardiwala, the Nexus 6P has great battery life and has “boosted the reputation of the Nexus brand”. Read his full review here.

In our battery test, the Nexus 6P ran for 12 hours, 4 minutes, which is quite high for a smartphone with a 5.7-inch, 1440p screen. In ordinary use, the phone lasted us well over a full day. The Nexus 6P is truly an all-encompassing smartphone that has everything covered and has seriously boosted the reputation of the Nexus name and brand. - Ali Pardiwala, Gadgets 360.

Blogger and Twitter user @nikhilchawla agrees.

Speaking of cameras, Nexus cameras have usually been serviceable but almost all reviewers agree that the phone’s camera is great. Here is a review by The Verge‘s Dieter Bohn calling the phone the best Android phone out there.

Twitter users @cosmic_paladin and @sgrover1981 both agree enthusiastically.

The Nexus 6P is a powerful, feature-packed smartphone with a premium design and fresh new operating system. - John McCann, Tech Radar
