Huawei Nexus 6P
The bigger of this year's two Nexus handsets seems like a dream on paper, with premium build quality, top-tier specs and access to the latest software updates straight from Google. Most importantly, Google finally has made a big phone that's comfortable to use with one hand. It's great for die-hard Android enthusiasts, but we're all spoiled for choice this year and the Nexus 6P doesn't do much to outshine the competition.
- Snappy performance
- Android 6.0 is a worthy update
- Solid battery life
- Fingerprint sensor is excellent
- Design is a little drab
- Overly sensitive power button

- 67AVERAGE USER SCORE3 ReviewsEngadget Reader20September 22, 2017Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!I started to write a longer review but it got eaten so here's the short summary. I've owned this $600 phone for about 18 months. Great display. Fast. Google Fi is awesome.Power button right next to the volume buttons is a terrible design and it is way too sensitive.Battery is fundamentally broken. Power drops from 30, 40 or even 50% charged will suddenly drop to 0 and it won't restart without charging. Based on this experience I wouldn't buy a Huawei again.nrage2390November 17, 2015Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!The best in its category.
