Fantastic phone for tinkerers with all the custom rom options to select it keeps the experience fresh and up to date at all times even if support from google has ended. This is a phablet type of device and it shows in its bulky weight and size although it never feels too large or clumsy to use just needs a case because the sleek metalic body is prone to slips. I recommend this for any tech/phone/android enthusiast and anyone looking for a great phone on a budget, these can be picked up for under $200 and work as good as new $1000 flagships.

I have had this phone for three (3) years and I do have a slight amount of screen burn from constantly having my scanner open in the game Ingress. It's been a great phone, though I have had to pay to have the battery replaced about every 1.5 years. I replaced with OEM batteries and it cost about $60 to get it installed. The volume on the phone is only audible when you're in the 75-100% range which is stupid, but it's still been the best phone I've ever had. The rear camera is fantastic.
Anonymous, 01 Dec 2018How u change it The battery is internal. Meaning you have to remove the outer casing of the phone and install a new battery to the motherboard. If you don't feel comfortable doing this yourself, you should take the phone to your local phone technician and pay a fee to have it replaced for you.
Downgrading is possible. Just flash Last factory image of Nougat build and then flash MM factory image. Be careful not to flash OTA package. Flash through Nexus tool kit. I have done both upgrading and dowbgrading without any issues.

I've had the Nexus 6P since the end of summer. I bought it from a chap who was selling it unused on OfferUP for 80 dollars. It worked perfectly until it fell on the ground about 3 weeks ago. Now the battery cuts at 20% and the phone overheats. Also the OEM USB-C to USB-C charger cable failed on me.
Good telephone, but has only battery problem. And additionally I am very annoyed with button place, often I reset my phone by accidentally pressing power button.
Yvan, 22 Oct 2018In the specs for the Nexus 6 P it says that the battery is not removable. How do you replace ... moreYou give it to shop certified technician. After two years I have second battery. This phone has by my humble two causes of bad battery: 1.No defend against overcharging. 2. Overheating when running demanding applications ( like Waze ). This two causes make battery to degrade quickly. Against overcharging I use Charge Alarm set to 95% charge. But may be it has not effect. Aniway , not Google, not Huawei does not mention how to treat battery, in order to,prolong battery life.
