You're probably wondering why I am back blogging about Huawei Nexus 6P again at this point but I hope you give me a few minutes of your time so I can talk about this super sleek gadget out in the market today. I posted my first entry a couple of week's ago and I promised to give you an in-depth introduction to "the king".

Hear ye! Hear ye! Meet the first Nexus phone built by the Chinese manufacturer Huawei. Make no mistake, the Nexus 6P is the first Nexus that can undoubtedly be called a PREMIUM Android smartphone.

I can almost imagine the conversation between Huawei and Google when they were still envisioning the phone that is Nexus 6P.

Google: Good morning Huawei.
Huawei: Zǎoshang hǎo Google. Nee hǎu!
Google: Thank you for coming to our meeting today. Let's get down to business shall we?
Huawei: Yes, for sure.
Google: We decided to tap your expertise in creating the newest premium Nexus phone. We want it     to have an awesome display, powerful camera, and long-lasting battery. Those are non-negotiables. Can you build it for us?
Huawei: Those features are amazing. We can surely do it for you.
Google: That's great! It is good to know that we have found the right partner to make this vision a reality. Shall we schedule another meeting so you can present the design and specifics to us?

That's probably how their first meeting went yeah? Who knows? The one thing I know is that before 2015 closed, the Nexus 6P was crowned as the best Nexus smartphone there is. If that fact is not enough to convince you to hurry and give it a try and start to live with the king then let me share with you my Top 5 Favorite Features.


(Let's pretend we are in the king's court and we are being treated to a gallery full of "the kings" pictures and what the kingdom touts as its world-class features.)


Google did a good job on this nifty gadget because the aesthetic is truly on point! The Nexus 6P is super sleek and ultra posh that you won't be ashamed to whip it out and use it even in the classiest get-togethers. It's a serious eye-candy to say the least.

The backside is a little bit raised because of the camera but it's not a cause of worry. The device is full metal unibody and diamond-chamfered edges. Did I say it looks really sleek and classy? Huawei clearly showcased it's best ever metal phone yet with this design. Oh not to forget about the glass display which was manufactured with Corning Gorilla Glass 4 and has an oleophobic coating to keep smudges away. Now, that is a winner for me! Because of the AMOLED panel, the display has a very vivid black as well as awesome color saturation. The colors just come to life through the screen. On the other hand, the Nexus 6P's curved metal shell is crafted from aeronautical-grade anodized aluminium.  Talking about out of this world (pun intended) specs yeah?

Let's move on to an ambient room with a rather low lighting... are you ready with the next feature? Yes! A camera that takes crisp photos even in low-light. Give me that quickly. I am sold! 


The camera is the best for the Nexus line so far. Picture this (or should I say imagine this) - 12.3MP lens, 1.55 micron pixels!!! What I look forward most when buying a smartphone is the camera specs and Nexus 6P does not disappoint. The phone's camera is undeniably good and is a cut above the rest. The 12.3MP lens is arguably "the best all-around camera ever installed in a Nexus phone". Having 1.55 micron pixels means more light as well thus producing vivid and beautiful shots every time. Say hello to capturing pretty pictures even at night yo!

The camera also has HDR+ setting which highlights more details. When HDR+ is turned off however, your photos will process faster and will work best with moving subjects - perfect for a mom like me who takes snaps of our little bundle of joy. It's also perfect for adventure-seekers who likes to shoot things/animals in motion.

Google turned to Sony to create the 12.3MP camera sensor and it's one of the best moves that Google did when they conceptualized this thing of beauty.

We've talked about the physical attributes as well as the powerful camera, why don't we talk about the performance? Shall we? 


I have not personally tried using the Nexus 6P yet so I spent a few hours researching about the capability of this little (big) wonder. The phone did not buckle after a series of tests according to TECHRADAR.COM - gaming, web browsing, streaming live video, navigation, hotspot, etc. The Nexus 6P comes with the power of Snapdragon 810 version 2.1, which doesn't run low even when multitasking.

Qualcomm's 64-bit, octa-core processor combines a faster 2.0 gigahertz quad-core chip and a slower, but more energy efficient, 1.55 gigahertz quad-core one. The results finally strike the balance.

With all the things mentioned above, I could not possibly identify a weak-point as of the moment. Not to mention how clean and stable Marshmallow is. It's nothing short of awesome really!

Have you ever lost your phone? Are you cautious of protecting your files saved in your phone? Are you worried about preserving your privacy? This fingerprint ID feature is the answer to your worries and fears. Here's why?


Google decided to put one more feature to the arsenal of features of this phone. The fingerprint ID scanner is located at the back of the unit and under the camera - it's a simple recessed circle on the back designed to look subtle and restrained but still sleek and functional. The placement is perfect and makes good use of an otherwise unused space. A person holding the phone will have his/her index finger right smack at the sensor that's why it is ergonomic.

The fingerprint ID sensor allows up to 5 registered fingerprints and to unlock the phone. The sensor is fast and accurate and get this - works even when your fingers are wet!

Purchasing apps through Google Play is as easy as a finger scan away. Amazeballs!

With all the features mentioned above, you might ask how many times you would need to charge your phone in a day. Let's get to that right now. 


Battery life is also a plus for the Huawei Nexus 6P. Oh my goodness! This feature must be straight from the heavens. Owning this phone would really be a lifesaver. Although there is no wireless charging support, the USB-C port is fast-charging. In theory, a USB-C port pormises up to 7 hours of use from a 10-minute charge. That could be overstated but even if you remove 50% of that data, I'd be happy with a longer battery life from a shorter charging time.

Can someone give me this phone like right now? Anyway, the USB Type-C port is located at the bottom edge of the phone. This is a new feature for the Nexus line and the new standard for smartphones in general. Aside from fast-charging, the USB Type-C is also capable of faster data transfer, reverse charging (you can charge another Type-C compatible phone from your Nexus 6P), and the cable is also reversible so it doesn't matter which way you plug it in.

My hope is that the market for accessories should catch up soon so if I need a spare, it will be less expensive.

The King of Android is one for the books indeed! I want it more now than when I started writing this blog post.


Have you made up your mind yet?
To say the Nexus 6P has good specs and hardware would be an understatement. This thing is so jam-packed with the latest bells and whistles it makes the competitor look like a handset from 2010. The Nexus 6P has all the grunt and firepower you will ever need from a handset, but importantly — and this isn’t always the case inside Android — it ACTUALLY feels that way too. -KNOWYOURMOBILE.COM

My excitement is indescribable. My heart is racing. I am super ready to "live with the king". For me, it's the most complete Android device out in the market today. Did I excite you too? I hope I was able to help. If you have any question, visit the Huawei Nexus 6P microsite here.
