I know you're using a different product but i'm curious what cable you used to convert from Micro USB to USB-C. Want to try one that at least has been verified by someone else. Thanks!

All the reviews I've seen claimed 6P doesn't support OTG so I assumed it was true. Have you tried any exFAT or NTFS drives or any accessories like keyboards and mice?
I've been using this phone since December 3. And so far,I can confidently say that this can be compared to iPhone 6s plus face to face. There are certain things (major) that I like about this device, and go be fair. I would also cite the things I don't like. First is the performance, truly it is very fast. No lag at all.
Second one is the camera. To be honest, I like both its front and rear cams, it performs exceptionally well in low lit situations with the HDR mode-on. Another thing I like is that, it is of course the latest iteration of Android, and being its default OS, it really is an important factor as it benefits from its nice features (OS). Price-wise? This one is much worthy of your penny that iPhone 6s plus. I don't say that I phone's latest is bad,I'm just saying, iPhones are overly overpriced(lol, but seriously).
Battery?? It can last 8 hrs of average to heavy usage.
Design? I don't think I still have to reiterate it. Haha
The bad things?
Well it doesn't have its own default galery all and music app.
At first, file managing is difficult to figure out, but once you'll get used to it, ts okay.
Another issue that I see. They haven't included nn earphone.
And lastly, its availability. Im here in SG right now. But I checked almost every corner of smart phond accessory stores and no one has any of it yet.

I have been using it for a month now and am able to transfer files to and from any fat32 formatted drive without any issues. The built in file manager (under settings -> storage -> explore) has to be used in this case. Most of the 3rd party file manager apps from the play store are unable to perform this task.

This is the 2nd review of the nexus 6p from gsmarena ,right?
One negative side is the availability . There are phones coming out very fast,making people change their mind all the time about what to choose. I mean i been waiting over 1 month now to check out the phone on the local store here .I was 100% sure to buy the 6p but huawei /google can not deliver fast enough/ship to stores/countries. I think this make them loose potential buyers. I need a phone yesterday not in 3 months from now.
As i waited and waited still the 64gb ,white version is not available here. And same with the google store too,waiting and waiting. So now im waiting for my new meizu pro 5 ,its on the way to me now.
The competition is hard and fast. To deliver and make it available worldwide is very important if you want people to buy this phone. Google/Huawei fail at this.
Nice review, had one for a while and agree a great phone. One error in your review though - it absolutely supports USB peripherals. OTG is not part of the USB spec, it natively supports connection of usb devices. I used USB drives and DACs (Chord Mojo) with mine via USB A to C adapter and even a micro USB to USB C cable. Keyboards and move should similarly work without issue.
After a slight delay, the loudspeaker test and the audio quality test have been added to the review last night. Thank you for your patience.

Please add the speaker test and the audio quality test to the review.
Too many people on here whining about a phone they don't own. I've used alot of phones... To include m8 s6 note 5 iPhone 6plus. And honestly this is the best phone to own, there are no compromises, u won't find any issues and everything is perfect, the camera is the best I've owned, loudspeakers are great, headphone audio quality is decent enough that was my main concern after the nexus 5 couple years back. Trust me this is the perfect and most complete smartphone ever made
Farland Prince, 23 Dec 2015Hello,
how about the ringing volume ? is it loud enough?
and the sunlight visibility outdoors?Speakers are among the loudest you can get. Outdoor is normal, at a galaxy note 4/5 level so no concerns here.
The display, for those who don't know it is like in between the note 4 and 5 in terms of quality... Or lets say development stage. The image quality is almost the same with all three panels, you can barely tell any difference when viewing a picture or web page on them.
The difference is made "inside" and is called efficiency and in this Department the nexus 6p screen is anywhere between the relatively power hungry note 4 and the relatively efficient note 5 screen.

Because really, the flagship race is neck and neck, it's hard to differentiate them nowadays. And honestly, you really can't go wrong with any flagship. It's really up to you now to decide - even reviewers now will tell you that.
But for differentiation's sake, this phone's unique selling point is clean, stock Android - on a bigger screen (the 5X's selling point is also the OS, but on a smaller screen).
