This Is The Android Device That You've Been

Specifications are important to pay attention to, especially when we’re talking about a yearly upgrade schedule. Let’s get some of the more important ones out of the way:

Display
The screen is crystal clear. Beautiful, really. It’s 5.7 inches, WQHD (2560 x 1440) AMOLED display, Gorilla Glass 4, and sports something Google calls “fingerprint and smudge-resistant oleophobic coating.” Welp. It definitely sounds fancy, but my screen picks up plenty of fingerprints and smudges. Maybe my fingers are oleophobic-penetrating.

Cameras
Oh, the cameras. The rear camera is 12.3 megapixels, has IR laser-assisted autofocus, and shoots 4K video at 30 frames per second. The flash is also great, not washing out your photo subjects. The front-facing camera is 8 megapixels and shoots a pretty decent HD video.

Processors, memory and storage
This baby is fast. It has the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 process and gets some help from 3GB of speedy LPDDR4 RAM. You can pick it up in 32, 64 or 128GB. No 16GB version, which is interesting since this is a size that Apple just won’t give up on yet.

Everything else
It’s anodized aluminum, which feels great to the touch. The dual front-facing stereo speaker is pretty great, letting you listen to music or videos from across the room. It has three microphones in total, front and back, all with noise cancellation. Making video, voice or VOIP calls sound pretty great.

The battery is outstanding thus far and I’ve gotten through an entire day of regular use without having to charge. When it is time to charge, you can do so quicker than ever with the USB Type-C system. Sure you’ll have new plugs to carry around, but you can go from about a 5 percent charged to 20 percent in minutes.

The Looks and Feels

Since the phone spends most of its time in your hand, at least for me, how it feels physically is extremely important. The Nexus 6P is notably heavy (178 grams), but lighter than the Nexus 6 that hit the streets last year. Our own Greg Kumparak referred to that device as “cumbersome.” While I feel like the 6P’s “heft” could turn some folks off, I wouldn’t call it a roadblock.

I’ve only had the device for about four days, so take some of this with a grain of salt. I’ll be doing a follow-up in a few weeks to share whether I was able to switch to this phone from my trusty iPhone 6. Having said that, I did notice some fatigue in my wrist after using the 6P for two days. Over the next two days that fatigue started to go away as I got used to the new size and form factor.

If you’re a Nexus 6 owner, you might want to start filling out your Craigslist ad now.

What I’m missing is the softer back that the Nexus 6 introduced last year. It was handy when I was on a plane or train ride and would use my phone for upwards of an hour at a time. I have no idea why they’d take something like that away, but perhaps Google didn’t get the same feedback that I have. I always heard that the soft back was a plus from friends and colleagues. Oh well, a case can easily fix that. For short spurts of regular use, I ditch the case and show off the pretty phone anyways.

The larger screen size does lend itself to more two-handed usage than say the Nexus 5X or iPhone 6S. Again, that’s OK if you’re willing to be open-minded to trying a larger phone. The quality of what’s showing up on the screen more than makes up for getting used to holding it differently.

I never thought I’d care about a fingerprint sensor, but hot damn did Google get this design right. The new Nexus phones both sport the fingerprint sensor on the rear, under the camera. It’s way more natural than the home button on iOS devices, in my opinion. When you take your phone out of your pocket you naturally touch the exact spot. Very smart. It’s super fast to unlock, too. Most of the time, I don’t even see the lock screen. I haven’t had one issue with it, it just works.

Color-wise you have a choice between aluminum, graphite and frost. I lean toward the darker colors, but it’s a personal call. I saw all three at the event and wasn’t put off by it. Plus, with the gorgeous metal finish, you can’t really go wrong. On the other hand, the 5X looks like cheap plastic no matter which color you choose.

The camera

Google decided that this year’s Nexus line was going to go all out when it comes to the camera. The 5X and 6P share the same rear-facing camera and it takes professional-grade photos. Lotsa megapixels and ridiculously fast shutter speeds.
