Waiting for GSMA to review this. I'm confused between Moto X style n 6p. Many users n reviews hav shown that Moto X lasts for only 5hrs (screen on time) even though it packs a 3000mah battery, which is not enough. On the other other hand we have snapdragon 810 (v 2.1) in Nexus 6p which is going to heat up same as the later shipments of upgraded one M9 with SD 810 v2.1 n drain the battery. Puzzled between the two devices! As they say there is no perfect phone. Pls review it GSMA take it to the real world asap so that I can make the right choice.
How come the camera spec says 12 MP, 4608 x 2592 pixels (16x9) when clearly the hands on videos show camera settings as 12.2 MP 4x3 resolution? If that so, then taking images at 16x9 resolution would make the effective megapixels around 8-9, not more than that.
On the other hand the Galaxy Note 5 camera spec says 16 MP, 5312 x 2988 pixels (16x9) and is actually able to take images in 16x9 resolution at 16 MP itself.
AnonD-447295, 03 Oct 2015Currently own a Samsung S3 (loved the update latency so much that I jumped ship to Cyanogenmod... moreWhich cyonogenmod version do you use on the S3?
Is it stable? Does it break any app?
JUST WOW. love the design it looks cool. the specs are great. has the latest OS. great Battery, Just a little big i would have preferred 5.5 Inches TOPS but anyway it's great. Just if i had the money it's too expensive :(
M, 04 Oct 2015I would not trade my note 4 for anything currently available on the market. Actually 2015 is t... moreYou have your preference and I have mine. If I will choose between the great Note 4 and the new Nexus 6P, the latter is my choice since it runs on the latest android OS version and it has great features too! Note 4 was good but will struggle in getting updates.
rj23, 04 Oct 2015Go with the Nexus 6P, Note 4 is great but is already outdated!I would not trade my note 4 for anything currently available on the market. Actually 2015 is the first year (for the last 10) I will not upgrade my phone. This year, the only manufacturer with a great hardware is samsung, and in my view, they had a chance to almost kill the android concurrency, but they blow it.. I don't consider note 5 an upgrade over note 4 and not to mention that it is not even available in Europe..
Why they didn't include fm radio...I know it's a basic feature..but don't think people don't need that...
AnonD-99150, 02 Oct 2015So guys what do you think I should prefer? galaxy note 4 or nexus 6p 128gb?Go with the Nexus 6P, Note 4 is great but is already outdated!
AnonD-308477, 04 Oct 2015So what is it, octa-core or quad-core? Here on gsmarena it says quad-core. Other places octa-core.Snapdragon 810 is an Octacore CPU that uses the big.LITTLE architecture. The first set of quad core with a lower clock speed runs the light tasks and the higher clock speed quad core handles heavy duty tasks.
Directly from Qualcomm, 808 and 810 processors are both 64-bits chips.
Here it says dual-quad-core, eg octa core. That's what the Snapdragon 810 is. The 808 on the other hand (used in 5X) is a hexa core.
AnonD-308477, 04 Oct 2015So what is it, octa-core or quad-core? Here on gsmarena it says quad-core. Other places octa-core.Gsmarena says rhar quad+quad. That is octa.. Why dont u look that?

AnonD-447295, 03 Oct 2015Currently own a Samsung S3 (loved the update latency so much that I jumped ship to Cyanogenmod... moreSD808 is 32-bit. It's ARMv8, but 32-bit SoC. It has 32-bit memory controller. But it doesn't matter since devices with SD808 have less than 4GB RAM.
Currently own a Samsung S3 (loved the update latency so much that I jumped ship to Cyanogenmod) - love the fact that the battery is removable and I can add a 64GB chip to get 96GB. But more and more companies are opting to remove the external memory - and of course you don't get "96GB" but rather "32GB" + "64GB". I would probably opt for the 128GB - with the 6P - so I am glad that it is offered - minimum would be 64GB. Just over 3y and no decrease in battery performance - I guess they are a lot better than before esp when you add things like JuiceDefender and of course remove the Samsung OS (chuckle).
One glaring oversight is the lack of the wireless charging (Qi-enabled) - which the Nexus 6 had and the newer Samsungs. I reviewed other Huawei phones and even their flagship (P8 - man that is a looker) - doesn't support it. Sad. Not something to prevent me from buying but the thought of coming home and just resting it on a pad without f'ing around with a plug - what a way to fly! It is one of those things that when you read about it - you just "get it" and all the plebes in the world don't. (The Huawei has the specs posted and likewise no mention of NFC).
But I like the idea of the front facing speakers - would love to see how they perform - though I use bluetooth everywhere - in a pinch it can come in handy. Plus the 5MP front facing camera over the crappy 2MP on the Nexus 6 is a good improvement.
I was actually gung ho on the Nexus 6 until I read about the pathetic performance lost due to encryption. Have to see how this thing fairs compared to devices -- per an "Android Police" article, Google is still doing software encryption but has a better chipset:
"The big difference in this year's Nexus phones is that they're running the Snapdragon 810 and 808, which are 64-bit SoCs with the ARMv8 instruction set. According to Burke, there are cryptography extensions provided by ARMv8 that offer better performance than the AES hardware encryption you could do on the Qualcomm SoC."
And there you go. Problem solved. :p
The design is combination of moto x 2015, htc one m7, zte grand s....
With 169 cm i'm slightly under of planet's male average, a lots taller than planet's human average and my back pockets are 135-140 mm in average. 160 mm device would be an open gift to thieves. Back in time GSMArena was launching a campaign in favor of compact top devices. 5X turned out to looks like 7 years old ultra cheap chinese device. It's about a time to relaunch campaign. We need a well design compact Nexus that fits pockets.
