Google Nexus 6P features an all metal design with heavily chamfered edges. The Nexus 6P is made from aeronautical-grade aluminum and there’s a fingerprint scanner and Nexus logo printed on its back. The phablet comes with an attractive and distinctive design and it also feels well built and good in the hands. The 5.7 inch quad HD AMOLED screen is one of the best available and comes with a pixel density of 518 pixels per inch.
One of the noticeable features is the fingerprint sensor on the back of the phone. It’s fast, accurate and sits naturally when holding the device. One can register up to five fingers at a time.
Camera for Nexus 6P is excellent. With 12.3MP rear camera, it produces great pictures and excellent color balance in good light. There’s a smart burst feature that captures a run of pictures at 30 frames per seconds and automatically selects a collection of eight includes the best shot.
