Google took the stage last night and announced a bunch of new devices, including the Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, an all-made-by-themselves tablet and Chromecast.

In this AW Center article we are going to discuss about the Huawei Nexus 6P Pros and Cons, and see whether the Nexus 6P is worth buying or not?

First of all, let’s review the Nexus 6P general specifications:

  • 3 x 77.8 x 7.3 mm, 178 g
  • 7 inches, AMOLED, 1440 x 2560 pixels
  • Snapdragon 810, Adreno 430
  • 3GB of RAM, 32/64/128 GB of internal storage (No option to expand the storage)
  • 12 MP / 8 MP Main and Front cameras, laser autofocus, 2160p@30fps video recording
  • Android 6.0 Marshmallow
  • Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac. Bluetooth V. 4.2, NFC, USB Type-C
  • Li-Po 3450 mAh battery (Non-removable)
  • Aluminium, Graphite, Frost


Before getting to more details, we believe the Nexus 6P is the first Google smartphone which is not all about being a perfect experience for developers or produced for those who prefer the Android pure, as the design is really elegant, the camera quality is outstanding and it does feel premium in hand.
Now, to get to know whether the Nexus 6P is worth buying or other alternatives are better options, let’s review the Nexus 6P Pros and Cons:


Huawei Nexus 6P Pros:

  1. Outstanding Camera: Let’s take a selfie. Isn’t this sentence too much familiar? Well, these days Camera quality is one of the 3 most important factors for a good smartphone and for the first time a Nexus device comes with a great camera. Some trusted sources believe that the Nexus 6P camera quality comes behind the Galaxy S6 Edge+ at the top chart.
  2. Software: Pure Android is what you can describe the OS and launcher on the Nexus 6P. You are guaranteed a constant support (especially in case of the Security) and you’ll be the first to receive Android updates. And do we need to emphasize on the smooth (and no-lag) user experience?
  3. Battery Life: Battery life has been always a challenge for mobile producers and the Nexus series are not any exception. But it seems that Google has managed to keep the battery alive for one-day use.
  4. Design: We always say that the design completely depends on the user’s opinion and taste. But the Nexus 6P design is really perfect and unlike the last years Google devices, the Nexus 6P with its metal uni-body is really premium.
  5. Price: Nexus 6P is sold unlocked right from the Google S tore and for the 32GB model you need to pay $499 and the price goes up to $549 and $649 for the 64GB and 128GB model. Well, the prices speak for themselves.

There are still more Nexus 6P pros and great features which makes it even more worth to buy, including the Nexus Protect, Dual front-facing stereo, pure experience of Android 6.0 Marshmallow, fast-charging USB Type-C connector, Google Imprint (to recognize your fingerprint to unlock the phone and do much more), slow motion video recording, smart burst mode and Android Sensor Hub.

Note that if you live in the U.S., you can enjoy the $50 Play Store credit as well as a 90-day Google Music subscription, if you pre-order your Nexus 6P before the deadline.


Huawei Nexus 6P Cons:

  1. No microSD Card: It seems we should get used to the lack of an option to increase the memory size on the Android devices (and of course iOS devices). Nexus 6P doesn’t come with memory card slot, and you need to stick with the primary storage.

Don’t forget the bright side, where you can choose the 128GB model.

  1. No Contract or What So ever: While many users prefer an unlocked variant of an Android device, there are many more who prefer a phone with contract to take advantage of financing options and the carrier’s offers. But the bad news is that the Nexus 6P is available only unlocked and there is no finance and contract.
  2. No Wireless Charging: Since the Nexus 6P material is aluminum, Google has decided to ditch the wireless charging feature in favor of more elegant look. But is the lack of wireless charging a big negative point? Not at all.



We believe the Nexus 6P is the best Nexus device to date, and Google has given the same weight to design and performance and has come up with a perfect result. If you are looking for a high-end device with affordable price and the size doesn’t bother you, then the Nexus 6P is defiantly your winner card.
