Long-term analysis of the Nexus 6P, is the best smartphone on the market?

There are terminals that leave you bad impression, others that leave you a good, and others you love and do not want to drop . For me, the last case is what happened to me with the Nexus 6P.Después roller coaster of emotions that made us live the Nexus 5 and Nexus 6, Google and its partners stopped to think about how to correct the course, and decided to go the way middle with two devices: a “cheap” and another “caro “. The Nexus 5X, manufactured by LG sales users with more concern for money, and the Nexus 6P those who wanted it all, manufactured by Huawei would take.

And, despite honorable exceptions, Nexus 6P is one of the best terminals in the market, without Android. , Android M operating system, which should not take long to be upgraded to Android N when published. Let’s be honest, the terminal flies, Latin Volare. The Snapdragon 810 is a chip with their problems, but with this software layer have not found absolutely no problems during my long, long, long period of use.

Since its launch, the Nexus 6P has a price “premium” according to their characteristics and operation-in fact, the “P” name, is premium – , but has been lowered on occasion, and that considering it was thrown something away from the average selling price of high-end range of brands. ### Aluminium for all

with the announcement of the Nexus 6P came to us the first Nexus wrapped terminal in a chassis aluminum alloy , so far everything had been different types of poly-plastic better or worse finish. Specifically I can talk about my terrible experience with the Nexus 5, which did not pass the test of time and suffered much external damage.

The aluminum alloy is really good, and to cover the terminal completely, including side, reminiscent of other high-end devices of Huawei, note that have been able to apply their previous experience in this terminal as well.

One of the key design points, is the rear periscope. The Nexus 6P has a glass strip at the bottom rear of the camera housing, sensors. In my eyes, is a great design , although it has been slightly controversial part for some people.

All buttons are located on the right side, both the on-with a rugged touch that allows you to distinguish it without looking like volume that are located just below. Undoubtedly, this will lead to confusion for some accustomed to other scheme users buttons, well separated in two different sides, or with the start button below the volume. To taste the colors.

Speakers front, behind sensor

The fingerprint sensor is the level of what we are accustomed Huawei, in recognition of the best, speed and angle. As I have said on other occasions, the position on the back makes it comfortable -very comfortable- for some things, but terrible if it is located in a dock-in the car, on the desk, nightstand, etc.

Some models choose to reduce maximally frames, but Huawei and Google decided to put two front speakers that work swimmingly. Thanks to these two speakers, multimedia experience and video calls, or handsfree mode are much nicer.

Is the smartphone more loud I’ve tried reaching nearly 80 dB, compared to ~ 65 dB standard of most high-end devices with lower speakers. Given that decibels are a logarithmic scale is much . Good .

Display like no

It has 5 , 7-inch screen AMOLED glorious 1440 x 2560 pixels, or if you prefer, 2K resolution … manufactured by Samsung. And it shows.

The quality is just remarkable, blacks are pure. And do not say in hyperbole. I mean real black, 0.00 candelas per square meter. Something only AMOLED screens can offer today. Where it gets the shine, I have noticed a little low, but not over the top. 352 nits, low compared with normal LCD screens.

This does not mean it’s bad on the street when the sun clashes with the screen, similar in this respect to the performance of the same screen in other terminals as the Galaxy Note 5.

in the interior

If the Nexus 5X was relegated to a single storage option with acceptable 32 GB, the Nexus 6P Huawei and Google they offer us three options: 32, 64 and 128 GB. Unfortunately, and despite advances in storage management Android M -combinando external memory cards with the Interior-, the Nexus 6P does not incorporate microSD card. The motives? Well, nobody knows for sure but we do know that it is an internal decision of Google. Huawei is more than happy to offer microSD cards in other terminals.

In addition to storage, has 3 GB of RAM and a Snapdragon 810 processor, combined with Android M, makes the terminal noticeable loose, fast and the interface is always ready for the user.

As in other models with the same chip, I found a slight delay when taking pictures in HDR that simply do not appear in terminals with high-end processors Exynos, or on the iPhone. Still, the experience is fantastic.

To complete we have a large battery of 3450 mAh, obviously not interchangeable. It is able to generate power and provide “fuel” to Huawei Nexus 6P for more than a day of moderate to high use, and very, very high use enduring the day without worrying. It has “quick charge” but not what we know as “Quick Charge” from Qualcomm. It is the proprietary technology charger, USB Type-C, which allows you to add more electricity.

Doze, the functionality of Android M that makes applications “go to sleep” when the mobile is with the screen off and resting on a surface, we can wake up without having lost just 1% or battery overnight. One of the weaknesses of Android in the past, and appreciated that it is fixed.

Camera, Action

finally could enjoy a good enough camera on a Nexus . Came a moment he thought unmodified Android was incompatible with having a good camera.

It is not that the best camera is-but-not market is very good. I have not regretted it at any time have to stop using camera phones with better all the time I’ve used.

The rear camera -of 12.3 megapixel, f / 2.0- is the same riding the Nexus 5X and capture software has been designed to improve nighttime and low-light scenes. Something that is appreciated, considering that is the weak point of most smartphones, and the truth is that it shows.

As for video, you can record 4K at 30 fps, and 240 fps 720p, you’ll leave a smooth look to our videos. All accompanied by a flash of dual tone of excellent quality, but note that it is flash, add good colors that not dislodged much in the picture.

The front is “so only “8 megapixels and with an aperture of f / 2.4 and can not record or in slow motion or 4K. Nor has an accompanying flash to illuminate the selfies , which does not detract many points.

For me the Galaxy S6 Edge + is still a great terminal, but has several points comparatively lower than the Nexus 6P are the fingerprint sensor or software performance . Moreover, the Nexus 6P slouch in the important section of photographic quality.

There are also incredible terminals with a similar quality in software manufactured by Motorola as the Moto X Style, although it is Motorola is true that the performance and lower finishes.

Compared with an iPhone 6s Plus, you must make the decision. The iPhone screen is slightly worse, but the camera is superior. On the software side, both are two great alternatives, and will depend on the applications you love.

If the next terminal high-end Nexus I hope that is still being manufactured Huawei saw what gets seen, put the camera in the TOP 3 market, the heavens will open, will lower the archangels and we will finally see the light. That day, and only that day, I can put a 10/10 to a smartphone. But today is not that day * Performance. unstoppable, or a short break in weeks and weeks. * Fingerprint reader: excellent performance and speed. * Display high quality AMOLED. * Speaker: loud and clear * No microSD. as usual in the Nexus, so you would have to opt for larger storage options. * Rear situation reader. annoying sometimes
