Premium design

Top 5 features:

Apart from hardware and software goodness, the Nexus series is also known for good looks and design. The Nexus 6P continues the trend of great build quality by donning aluminum chassis, which makes it look premium.

Nexus Imprint Fingerprint scanner

Top 5 features:

New Nexus smartphones feature fingerprint scanner that is powered by Google's Nexus Imprint software. As per Google's claims, the tech helps the smartphone takes 600 milliseconds to recognize a fingerprint, and gets better with every use. The fingerprint scanner can be used to unlock the phone, and can be integrated with third party apps for verification codes, thanks to the fingerprint support in Android Marshmallow.

Improved Camera

Top 5 features:

Google Nexus 6P, like its smaller sibling, features a 12.3MP Sony sensor camera with f/2.0 optics, and 1.55 micron pixels against the 1.2 micron pixels seen on previous gen Nexus smartphone. The super sized pixel size will be good for low light photography as it captures more light, and results in sharper photos. Moreover, the camera can shoot 4K videos and supports 120 FPS slow-motion recording.

Goodness of Type-C port:

Top 5 features:

The Nexus 5X comes with a USB Type-C reversible port, which is one of the most talked about features these days. It is good as you will mo more need to carry multiple cords around, but at the same time, users may have carry a charger or adopter along all the time, as this is still not used widely, and is restricted to select devices.

Android Marshmallow:

Top 5 features:

The Nexus 6P brings the Android's latest software version - the 6.0v Marshmallow on-board, which gives it an edge over others. This is the first smartphone, apart from the Nexus 5X to get the Marshmallow flavor.


5 Features it lacks

The Nexus 6P features a higher megapixel camera with improved features, but we think it lacks one important feature - the optical image stabilization. OIS is considerable because it helps when you shoot photos and videos while in motion. It also helps in shooting better photos in low light conditions. Moreover, the OIS is present in the previous generation Nexus smartphones - the Nexus 6 and Nexus 5.

Wireless charging:

5 Features it lacks

It may disappoint you to know that while the Nexus 4, 5 and 6 supported wireless charging, the Nexus 6P lacks this feature. This could be due to the change in design, as the phone now gets metal chassis. Whatever be the reason, we wish the feature was present on the phone.

Water and dust resistance:

5 Features it lacks

Resistance to water and dust is one of the important features that a premium phone must have. After all, who would want to see their expensive phone succumbed to accidental water damages!

Expandable storage

5 Features it lacks

Sadly, this time as well the Nexus smartphone lacks a microSD card slot, just like all the other, previously launched Nexus smartphones. You will have to be dependent on the internal storage space of the Nexus 6P, which is available in three variants - 32GB, 63GB and 128GB.

Dual-SIM compatibility

5 Features it lacks

The Nexus 6P comes with singe SIM support, which might not bother many users, but for many it will be a thumb-down. There are a ot of users who use dual-SIMs to separate their personal life and professional life, and don't want to carry two smartphones. Moreover, even Android OS supports dual SIM functionality. Hence, a Nexus smartphone with dual-SIM support would have been more convenient.
