Google Nexus 6P by Huawei 128gb Aluminum color
The ability to customize the Android operating system is a decisive issue among the users of the operating system. Some see the inherent value and enjoy using the custom overlays and skins that manufacturers build into their devices, while others desire and seek out an uncut version of Android. However, for some of the Android faithful, Google’s Nexus devices are the top of the heap.
The benefits of buying a Google-branded device (but not manufactured by Google itself) are quicker access to OS updates and security patches. While there’s some interference from carriers when it comes to updates, the lack of manufacturer modification and approval takes one step out of the process. Google’s current Nexus flagship is the 6P, is manufactured by Huawei. This keeps with Google’s practice of not manufacturing its own smart phones, rather the company rotates these duties with other manufacturers, Huawei being the most current.
At 5.7 inches, its screen is a tad smaller than last year’s Nexus 6 but is the same size as the Samsung Note 5. It comes 32GB, 64GB and 128GB with the base model being more capacious than Apple’s base 6S Plus (16GB) and offers 64GB more than Samsung’s most expensive device.
Its camera might not keep up in terms of megapixels, but the 12 megapixel sensor keeps up with both Apple and Samsung when it comes to shooting video at 4K at 30 frames per second (which seems to be one of the new check boxes for high-end smartphones). The phone also includes a fingerprint scanner, which Google is dubbing "Nexus Imprint" and baking into Android 6.0 Marshmallow. So far satisfied reviewers have indicated that it’s fast and responsive.
The Nexus 6P also includes a USB-C connection, making it one of the first premium devices, if not the first, to feature the new connector. With its options for two-way power delivery (USB-C devices could be charged or charge other like-equipped devices) and fast speed (5Gbps), Google is leading the industry with the connection.
