Engadget Review

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.

Pros
  • Snappy performance
  • Android 6.0 is a worthy update
  • Solid battery life
  • Fingerprint sensor is excellent
Cons
  • Design is a little drab
  • Overly sensitive power button
  • Improved camera still outclassed by its rivals
