Live with the King

April 30, 2016

I am a huge fan of the Nexus series. I've been using a Nexus 5 for two years now and I must say I am highly satisfied with my experience with my phone (which I have adorably nicknamed as Nexee 😉). Nexus 5 was one of the most advanced smartphone when I bought it then. Well fast foward to two years now, there are a lot of new phone models out in the market equipped with the most advanced technologies.

The latest model that we have in the Nexus Family tree is the Huawei Nexus 6P.

Nexus 6P in a Nutshell:

Nexus 6P is the first among the Nexus phones to have a full-metal unibody which gives it a very sleek and sophisticated look. It is made of anodized aluminium, with 3D curved glass and diamond chamfers. It comes in three colors - Aluminum, Graphite, and Frost.

With its gigantic 5.7" WQHD AMOLED display with 518 pixels per inch, you're in for the ultimate multimedia experience! Never miss the details when you watch movies and TV shows on the Nexus 6P. Also, having an Octa-core Qualcomm® Snapdragon 810 v2.1 processor will be very useful when you are busy multi-tasking or just playing your favorite games. And with its 3450mAh battery, the phone can last all day all night. And in case the battery do runs out, Nexus 6P is equipped with a reversible USB Type-C port for faster charging and quicker data transfer rates.

It's not all the time we take photos with the ideal light setting (too dark, against the light, etc). Well the Nexus 6P solves that. Its 12.3MP 1.55µm pixel rear camera takes in more light which can greatly capture low-light photos. Powered with the latest Google Camera software and Google Photos, taking great photos and perfectly capturing moments have never been this easy.

At the back of the Nexus 6P is the fingerprint sensor which is strategically positioned for the perfect natural grip. Just one touch unlocks the phone - no need to enter passwords anymore! You'll be able to access your phone more conveniently. You can also register more than one fingerprint, which can be useful if other family members also access the phone. Nexus 6P also has the following features: Android Pay (available in the US only), Dedicated Keystore System and Encryption Engine. 

Nexus 6P runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow, which supports fingerprint verification and has a more efficient battery management (with the new Doze feature). Also, all of Google is on your hands, as all the useful apps are already pre-installed in the phone (Maps, Chrome, Play, Youtube, Drive, Photos).

So these specs make the Huawei Nexus 6P the #KingOfAndroid.

But how does this compare to the Nexus 5, which I currently use?

The Huawei Nexus 6P is slightly bigger and heavier than the Nexus 5, but the screen display is better because of its higher resolution and pixel density. This means better photo and video viewing! Actually, my most favorite feature is the camera (8MP front-facing / 12.3MP rear!!!) This is a huge improvement, especially on the quality of selfies that I can take with this phone! ヾ(゚∀゚ゞ) Also, another favorite is the fact that the camcorder of Nexus 6P can record 4K Ultra HD videos. And to back that up, the phone has front-facing speakers for a complete entertainment experience!

With my years of experience with a Nexus phone, I can attest that having the latest Nexus model would be all worth it. Plus, you get the cool features of running on vanilla Android and receive the latest updates and features from Google! 

The Nexus 6P, powered by #HuaweiXGoogle.

Hmm. I guess it's time to do a phone upgrade!  〜( ̄▽ ̄〜)
