I've had the Nexus 6P for 3 months, i used to have Samsung Note 3
Looking at the specs i went with 6P instead of note 5, also my girl has note 5 and I can be weird about having same things as other, but that's beside the point
Hardware wise I love the nexus 6p. It doesn't get slow all of a sudden and its very responsive and smooth and the cache or memory holds up with watching videos using interfaces such as KODI.
I compared a lot of phones did a lot of research and this phone is a great choice.
But now that i have it, I say to myself i would have rather gone with a samsung (note 5).
This is mainly because of built in software.
the nexus shuts of at 1% battery and does not leave you with any emergency power if you need to get your phone back on to make a final phone call or lookup a number.
My old samsung and my girlfriends samsung turns off around 2 or 3 %, but will turn back on allowing yourself some time to make that phone call or search a number.
Nexus is great for me because i can handle going through menus for settings etc. but does not have the ease of use samsung software provides like turning off and on adaptive display. (the adaptive display on nexus works, but sometimes makes you feel like it doesn't). Quick options from pull down lack on the nexus when compared to samsung. Some feature not so important like IR i wish were on nexus (when wanting to use your phone as a remote). The samsung is capable of being a remote for any device that uses IR signal, versus nexus only connects to smart devices.
At the end of the DAY...........
Nexus hardware is solid but lacks extra features compared to samsung
Nexus software and ease of using and far in comparison to my experience with my old samsung
Also--- the screen was supposed to be a higher level of gorilla glass, but i find it scratches fairly easily.
Hope this helps.
S.ABiR, 19 Jul 2016anyone knew when android n update comes???Aug-Sept
I‘m considering to upgrade my phone... Nexus 6P or Huawei P9 Plus? which one is better & why? Thank you in advance!
Imtiaz, 18 Jul 2016The issue of phones backside overheating is the same across all other phones running the Snapd... moreIt doesn't over heat.actually it heats up same like normal phone its just that the metal is a good conductor of heat. Heats up fast cools down fast, rather than a plastic body. In s7 edge it feels like its very warm more than you think that's do you to water proof locks the air can not escape. We feel it only due to metal bodies. Other wise these are tested. And nexus 6p behaves normal. No need to worry my fellow nexus-ians.
The issue of phones backside overheating is the same across all other phones running the Snapdragon 810 chip.
AnonD-559398, 12 Jul 2016I am having the dilemma I think I am going with OP3 because of the camera quality, Dash Char... morebare in mind, op3 do have shorter battery performance compare to other, i mean a comparison with all those competitor phone in terms of those standby time, calling time, browsing time, gaming time. OP3 do have dash charging is indeed a great advantage, but bear in mind that, every phone's battery do have a life span as the charge cycle increase, the performance of the battery will deteriorate and you will have a shorter standby time. Why don't you go for a phone that charge longer(most of the flagship phone or future flagship phone that having qualcomm chips do have fast charge 3.0), and last longer than OP3.
rose, 11 Jul 2016which is best 1+3/nexus 6p? I went with the nexus. It should be quicker and has better specs. The nexus is also large phone and you may or may not want that.
I've recently bought Nexus 6p but it heats up a lot specially when I use camera or play a game, did I receive a faulty piece of nexus 6p? or it's normal?

I am having the dilemma
I think I am going with OP3 because of the camera quality, Dash Charge, and Insane RAM for the price. Yes the 6P does have a bigger battery but the dash charge in OP3 can bump you up to 60% in 30 mins.
Started with Google with the Nexus 5, which was a great phone with a small price tag. The to the Nexus 6 which was $$$ but I wanted the newest updated "now" and loved the screen size for streaming my TiVo anywhere. I still use it in the house using all the apps and functions over wifi but without a sim. Its great to use as a backup when you work from home. I recently purchased the Nexus 6P after much investigation into the 810 V2.1 to see about overheating, and to the claims that it bends easily. Both are false with my use. No overheating after 4 hours of continuous video play at 1080p. It was just warm to the touch. I purchased the official Nexus case from Google which is perfect in my opinion. Slim and easy to handle without slippage. I have never dropped or broke a device in my lifetime. I treat it like something you paid so much $$ for the way it should be handled. I'm 43 y/o started out on BB's provided by Company but Google has come a long way. The Nexus 6P is a great phone IF, you do not need large amounts of storage on the device and can stream from the cloud or home NAS, you do not mind taking pics/vids using a tripod seeing no OIS and you don't mind changing all your chargers to usb type C 24 pin. If you can handle that then this phone may be great for you. Running dev Nougat on Nexus 6 and the changes that will come to the Nexus 6P will make it more exciting and extend the usability. Enough rambling on rose...
This phone is amazing, even though it's old it can still keep up with some of the best phones of 2016; my only complaint is the Bluetooth doesn't work for sharing files. But I think it's just a software bug. Anyways I'd give this phone a 10/10 even with the Bluetooth problem.
Good , charging is v fast of Nexus 6p Nd I love the camera Nd finger print scanner
Issam hammoudi, 04 Jul 2016Wait for the new nexus Every year or so there would be a new nexus. That doesnt mean that old one is obsolete at least not in the case of nexus series. As you will be up to date for a long time. If you can wait then buy the new one or nexus 6p is good enough.
P.s- nexus 6p is not that old. Its still the beast in the land of android.
Anonymous, 03 Jul 2016I perplexed by all the rave reviews. I've had this phone since it came out and I'm on Google F... moreYour exprience is totally dependent on google fi. Try to use it with operator like solely
Then it would come different and positive.
