Huawei Nexus 6P

1 / 12

The Huawei Nexus 6P is one of the last two devices made by Google under the much-acclaimed Nexus branding, with the 5X being the other. Known for bringing the Android experience to the users in its purest form, the Nexus devices have always been the first ones to get all the new Google updates. The bigger of the last two Nexus siblings, the 6P stands out in terms of design with a full metal build and a big screen, coupled with hardware specifications that were best in class at the time of launch in 2015. With the advent of the new Pixel lineup, like the whole Nexus branding, the 6P too would fade into oblivion soon.

OUR VERDICT

Google has killed the Nexus lineup and replaced it with the Pixel and Pixel XL. But that doesn’t mean that the Nexus 6P doesn’t make sense. The availability of the 6P is dwindling fast, but even now it makes sense as a premium device to own if you like the pure Android experience. The 6P, with the Nougat update, is still a good device for multimedia consumption and multitasking if your budget doesn’t stretch far enough to accommodate the Pixel XL. Oh, and the Nexus 6P looks brilliant.
