quality camera pics, good stereo front facing speakers, good front cam, great unmolested software, superb display, superb fingerprint reader, sexy design, is somewhat water resistant at least in a bowl of water and under the faucet, upgrades quickly to latest android versions, type c usb, high end specs.
-camera focus is slow as molasses so much so that i have come to detest waiting for this thing to focus. As compared to say the galaxy s7 camera focus speed, nexus 6p focus speed is horrible and inconsistent.
-I have experienced plenty of stuttering and slowdowns. I keep this phone vanilla stock and dont run any crazy apps, but i still have experienced plenty of annoying hiccups. I've had this phone since dec 2015 and it has recently in the past few months started t9 behave properly for the most part.
-The battery life is mediocre to average. In my experience it is mediocre and has been tested to be fairly average. I never expect more than 3-4hrs of (SOT) screen on time from this thing, which is bizarre since it has a large battery.
-The display adaptive brightness feature is abysmal. It does not work at all and I do not count on it at all in my daily use. I keep it enabled, but I always end up manually adjusting the brightness, it's extremely annoying and I have never had this much of a problem in any of my previous android phones.
-I have heard plenty of accounts online of people getting affected by a critical bootloop defect in this phone. After hearing that I will be getting rid of this phone before that happens to me, I will not be getting screwed over past my warranty period.
I was motivated to create this review to mainly voice my semi distaste of this product. I have grown slightly bitter over the 1yr+ I've had with this and am actively researching and shopping for a replacement phone. I am hoping to get rid of this or as a last resort ditch android all together and switch to apple since apple actually has their stuff together when it comes to user experience and satisfaction.
I've been with android exclusively since 2012 and have had the samsung galaxy 2,3,5, and finally the nexus 6p. I have a general bitter taste left in my mouth from the general android experience. It seems the android experience is very inconsistent and all the androids I have ever had did not provide me a lasting satisfying experience.
I would not buy this phone again and while I'm at it, I'm hoping android gets replaced with something more mature and consistent in the near future, it really is tiring to get disappointing this many times after being heavily market hyped to.
JB , 02 Feb 2017Hey, bought 6p bt it's Sim tray dual Sim, is Nexus6p can b run dual Sim ????Nope. It's just a design
i have nexus 6p 32gb
it has been approx 9 months
got it repaired on January 2017 and my motherboard was changed
now it has again some problem with proximity sensor and battery drain
when i got this service center they couldn't find my imei no.
it was my good luck that i got the phone to same service center so they accepted it
never trust on Chinese product
i got to know that this device cost is under 15000
and they charged it so high(35000) with brand name of google ,there is nothing much to be proud of this device rather than name of google
nothing could be expected from such companies.
AnonD-641680, 04 Feb 2017Nexus 6p is the best android phone ever!!where should i get this phone.
This phone is excellent! It's the best phone I owned, and I came from a Samsung galaxy S7 edge.
It is the best phone I ever had. It is truly amazing and I don' regret buying it at all but it has some issues. It takes too long to open a video sent in whatsapp :/
I always have to go to google photos outside whatsapp app to watch videos sent by my friends through whatsapp.i don't know if there is any solution to this.
Other issue I had with this phone it was related to the volum buttons which don't work after phone updates but it is solved now. If you have this problem you have to uninstall AND mark "do not update automatically" talkback app or it will happen again whenever the phone updates. I did it directly in play store.
Pathetic , some or other other problem with mobile network . Error while searching networks .....Is a constant problem. Every android upgrade brings some or the other issue. Absolute Waste of money
Gledis, 05 Jan 2017Anyone on nougat with bootloop issue?Bootloop issue i face 1st time in my phone
Gledis, 05 Jan 2017Anyone on nougat with bootloop issue?Me.... read my post
Stay away of this phone or buy the extended warranty. My Nexus 6p after the Android 7.1.1 was working fine. 10 days later the phone presented an endless bootloop, when I searched the website, this issue is very common with the Nexus 6p. I called Huawei and they were sorry but my warranty expired 5 days ago.
They told me to send the phone to any third party shop to flash the phone back to Android 6, so far no luck after visited 3 shops.

Nexus 6p or htc 10??
Which one is more stable in performance nd battery?
Which Mobile will be amusing to use??
Need your help - Nexus 6P 64GB 350$ (USD) or Nexus 5X 32GB (275$) or Moto X Style 32GB (220$)?
Scared of the AMOLED burn-in and nougat battery issues in the 6P and I think the X Style is worth the money
nice phone but, its released in 2015 and still hella overpriced wtf..
I had a nexus 6p for about 14 months. First problem encountered was a bad camera focus problem, fixed under warranty, second problem camera went bad again out of warranty, repaired. Next problem was the phone stopped recognizing the LTE radio, in other words would have no LTE reception even if you were standing right next to a tower. Repaired. then one morning went to turn it on and nothing, nada, ziltch. the phone was actually on but screen was black. Un-Repairable and I will never by huawei product again. This is not the first Huawei I've had problems with but it will be the last!
