Just bought it last week, after two years on a galaxy S5.
The decision process was tough, I spent several weeks hesitating between the Note 5, the S6 edge (by principle, I stopped buying the latest model, that's my way of saying "no").
Feelings after one week:
- love the screen.
- battery is okay. Not good, not bad. I wish there was more.
- weight: good.
- screen estate: fantastic.
- Bluetooth: works.
- sound: very good
- overall performance: very good
- overall fluidity: very good
- camera: good (but I'm not a camera person)
- slip factor: very bad. had to buy a phone case, realized four seconds after unboxing that I'd let the device fall on the floor
- updates: that's for real, it starts updating each Android version, month after month. I ended up downloading the latest image from Google and pushing it through adb.
Why it won over the s6 edge and note 5:
- lack of water resistance and no sdcard extension: I don't accept this on a premium model.
- no bloatware and the ability to run stock Android on the N6P.
- security updates do not take months to be published, especially when you don't have the latest model...
Conclusions: I strongly recommend it!
To answer a couple questions on here: Yes, the Nexus 6P is still a great phone. It gives a lot of bang for your buck. You won't have all of the processing power packed into the Pixel, but this phone still performs great. I've been a Nexus 6P owner for a good, long while, and I have yet to feel the need to upgrade. This phone is certainly still a great option for those looking for a phone with a lower price point.
AnonD-169036, 20 Oct 2016Can I still purchase this device?????? please help......No need its crappy
Can I still purchase this device?????? please help......
As a lot, i was waiting for next nexus phone, and when they come up with pixel phone and the price so high, im at the point when dont know what to do. I really like the way 6p looks and performs, but is it still worth buying? I mean, i heard nexus closed with his phones, does it mean, that i f i buy 6p, it gonna be forgotten and i didnt get any upgrades, updates and stuff? Im choosing between 6P, LG G5, P9, Samsung S7, OP3 and just cant decide. Maybe i just should wayt for something new comming out? Maybe u r waiting for some new model of phones?
Dear Service Manager,
I am facing problems in my Nexus 6p H1 512,64 GB Grey phone
It is the worst handset I ever had.
Within 4 months of purchase it is not funtioning well for the second time.
For the first time ,I had experinced problem in Power on button it was not working properly and phone was rebooting frequently.
I submitted the handset to Kalyan Service centre & they sent to Chennai R&D centre. I got the repaired phone after 20 days. In this process I had to use standby phone for almost one month.
Now it is showing "No service "error. it is detecting the Vodafone sim card however it is not showing any service since 15/10/16.I had got my sim card changed from Vodaphone centre & still the error is not rectified.Sim card is working fine in other handsets of different company & not in Huawei handset which I purchased in June 2016.
Its very frustrating experience & there is No authorised service centre in Mumbai which can repair without sending it to chennai R&D centre.
NEVER EVER BUY THIS COMPANY PHONE
AnonD-598963, 17 Oct 2016Hi guys, I'm getting a new phone and can't decide between Nexus 6P and OnePlus 3 (I have a 16G... morehi, I have the 6P since may this year, it's a great phone. The size is not a matter to me, i like the big screen for navigation and gaming. The battery life it's average, depends on the screen brightness you want and if you navigate with LTE or WiFi. I use it all day long, navigating and chating, and I charge it every night, oh and listen to music with spotify all day. The battery charges within an 1:30 hour. With android nougat it became faster and smoother, I totally recomend you this phone, but i have never used an oneplus 3. The lack of OIS is not a problem if you want to take photos or film at 1080P, with 2K resolution is another story, the EIS does not get the job there.

Moto g4 plus or one plus 2 ?? Which one should i buy? Please tell me
I had this phone for 2 weeks, my thoughts:
1st thing, the phone is bigger than it should be. its tall because of the top and bottom bezel space, which makes it kind of uncomfortable to hold, i have average hands. compare it to a moto X Pure or the Note 5 which both have the same 5.7in screen but the body on each of those phones doesnt waste as much space making it more comfortable to hold than this. I noticed the phone does heat up even when not on the charger. Watch some youtube for a while, or a 23 min episode of one of your shows, and it will heat up on you. Also my biggest issue, and the ultimate reason why i returned the phone was the battery life. I dont know why they gave it such a high endurance rating, the battery life is subpar. turn on the option to view the battery percentage in numbers and you can literally watch it drain from when you wake up till around lunch time. its a shame how cell phones in general have taken massive steps forward in all aspects like the screen and media, but have also taken a massive step back in endurance and battery life. android authority and other reviewers will tell you the battery is good, or decent but honestly, is 4hrs screen on time REALLY good? thats right on the cusp of trash for my standards.
some pros however were the perfect sounding speakers on the front, the super slick fingerprint scanner, the beautiful screen, and the overall look of the phone is nice and stands out from pretty much everything else. but to me, the heating and the below average battery were unacceptable shortcomings. especially when phones like the Huawei mate 8, Moto Z Force exists.
AnonD-295399, 18 Oct 2016Nexus 6p is ultimately better than op3 ✌️What about the size? I know it's a big phone and I also have small hands so I'm a little worried I won't get used to it.. Has it been a problem with you?
AnonD-598963, 17 Oct 2016Hi guys, I'm getting a new phone and can't decide between Nexus 6P and OnePlus 3 (I have a 16G... moreNecus 6p has much better camera than the one plus 3, i have the 6P and its great, storage is enough and u have unlimeted stroage with google photos
AnonD-159403, 12 Oct 2016Need some expert reviews here. I'm very much confused now with Nexus 6P / OP3. OP3 is a muc... moreFalse information. The 6P supports VoLTE perfectly. Almost all calls that are not over WiFi are over VoLTE with my T-Mobile SIM. Audio quality is top notch. I considered the One Plus 3 and ZTE Axon 7, but the band support and being certified for T-Mobile Wi-Fi calling drove me to the Nexus 6P. The fact it has the best software doesn't hurt either. I am very happy with my decision this is a top-notch phone in every way and incredibly smooth and powerful. There is nothing that I have tried to do with this phone that I have not been able to do with the phone handling it gracefully.
Hi guys, I'm getting a new phone and can't decide between Nexus 6P and OnePlus 3 (I have a 16GB Nexus 5 now)...
I like the Nexus 6P because of its stock Android and instant updates, but I'm a bit worried about the lack of OIS, since I make plenty of videos. On the other hand, I like the OP3 for its OIS and the notifications button on the side, plus the 64GB of storage. What I don't like is the body of it, especially the camera bump and the jack placement, and since it isn't available in my country it would take some time to get it.
So, can anyone tell me if 32GB of storage is enough and the lack of OIS is not a problem with the Nexus 6P? And if the battery life is good and the body is not a problem with the OP3? I'm planning to have it for 2-3 years so I really want to make the best choice.
AnonD-456452, 16 Oct 2016If you want the phone to last for several years, you should also think about the fact that the... moreSony X-series have Qnovo adaptive charging tech, it prolong the Battery life and it fast charge won't hurt the battery, it is the safer for the handset.
abd, 30 Sep 2016Hi guys please help me to choose between iphone se or nexus 6p. I want phone which may last... moreIf you want the phone to last for several years, you should also think about the fact that the battery will start degrading after a couple hundred charge cycles. So either get a phone with removable battery, or be prepared to take the phone to the shop to pay the serviceman to replace the battery for you if it's not user replaceable.
