Nexus 6P – The 6 Pillars of Strength

nexus-6p-01The Nexus 6P is laden with firsts. It is the first Nexus to come with a full-metal build, the first Nexus to incorporate a fingerprint reader; the first Nexus to feature USB Type-C and most notably, the first Nexus to be made by Huawei, one of the top 3 smartphone brands globally at the moment.

Beginning with last year’s Nexus 6, Google has abandoned its long-held strategy in making Nexus affordable to the masses and stepped into a daring price category that features the iPhones, the flagship Samsungs and the likes. The Nexus 6 is a polarizing phone because of that (and also because of its sheer size). In the face of mixed receptions, Google is taking a risk by appointing first-timer Huawei as the maker of the next flagship device and it is increasingly looking like a masterstroke. Unbound by the shackles of needing to keep the price low, Huawei went all-out and cut no corners in making a top-tier phone that can at last compete inside out with the best of the best currently in the market.

The “P” stands for more than just premium.



Though not as crazy-huge as the Nexus 6, the Nexus 6P has a more-manageable 5.7-inch display which by all means is still an awesome size for media consumption. Pair that with 2K resolution in AMOLED and you got a super-crisp display that dazzles with a pixel-per-inch count of 518 which is on par with the class-leading Samsung Galaxy Note5 and Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+. This means the Nexus 6P has one of the best displays in a smartphone in the market right now. Period.



Nexus phones have been described as beautiful (the glass-dominated Nexus 4) and comfortable-to-hold (the Nexus 5 with its soft-touch back) but very rarely, premium. We can finally do that with the Nexus 6P. The best of iPhone designs feature aluminum, glass and chamfered edge, elements which are all present in the new Nexus. It is no co-incidence that its design is one of the most-talked about feature in reviews as well as conversations. That said, the asymmetrical glass back may not be to everyone’s liking but it does give the Nexus 6P a strong identity which many devices simply lack these days. It is not only the most premium Nexus, it is also the most aesthetically-pleasing yet.

Power & Performance


Rocking an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 and Adreno 430 processor, the Nexus 6P is packing some serious firepower. The result is one of the smoothest experiences you will ever find in an Android device. Navigation will be snappy, multitasking seamless and graphically-intense gaming will not be a problem. It makes for a potent combination with the “lightness” of stock Android. And that leads us to…

Pure Android Experience

Nexus 6P Pure AndroidThe likes of Samsung’s Touchwiz, EMUI, ColorOS and others may offer something more than the bare-bone stock Android but ask any Android purists and they will tell you that Android in its purest form is simply unparalleled. No ugly UI, no unnecessary bloatware that hogs the memory and no nonsense, this is how Google wants its mobile operating system to be. Less is more. Also with a Nexus, you are guaranteed a front row seat for the latest software updates and the Nexus 6P remains only one of the very few devices out in the market now to enjoy what the latest Marshmallow update has to offer.


Nexus 6P Camera

For the longest time, the camera has been the Nexus line’s Achilles’ Heel. Not anymore now. Huawei did well by fitting a Sony image sensor in the Nexus 6P’s camera and what a world of difference it made. Whereas past Nexus smartphones were universally panned for its poor camera, the Nexus 6P received wide praises for it. Probably not as good as the best flagships but still a major improvement from its unimpressive past. Remember people, no corners are cut here.

The Whole “Package”


Sure, the Nexus 6P does not come cheap but you pay for what you get. You get a beautiful device that pleases your eyes in more ways than one and a powerhouse at that. Not to mention a promising camera and a software experience that only a Nexus can give. It is all about getting value for every cent you pay and there is little to suggest that the Nexus 6P will disappoint. 

The Nexus 6P (64GB model) is now available for purchase online at and Lazada Malaysia as well as selected Huawei Outlets for a recommended retail price of RM2,698.

Now that you know what makes the Nexus 6P such a “phenomenal” smartphone, how does it stack up against some of the best flagships currently out there – namely the Apple iPhone 6s and Samsung Galaxy S6 edge?
