Huawei Nexus 6P Full Review Pros and Cons

Huawei NEXUS 6p is no doubt a good phone , but every phone have some pros and cons , so we are listing some pros and cons but before we share this we will share some key feature of this phone.

Key Features of Nexus 6P Special Edition

  • Android v6 (Marshmallow) OS
  • 12.3 MP Primary Camera
  • 8 MP Secondary Camera
  • 4G LTE (Cat 6)
  • 5.7 inch Touchscreen
  • 2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 v2.1 64-bit Octa Core Processor
  • Wi-Fi Enabled
  • RAM: 3 GB LPDDR4

Experience so far:

1. Buttery smooth interface
2. AMOLED and Samsung tell-tale signs on the display.
3. Slightly heavy, the phone is long, not as wide as Nexus 6.
4. Using it for Corporate Exchange Mail and host of other Corporate tools.
5. Online Shopping Clients all activated.
6. Camera quality considerably improved but no frills.
7. Good solid sound output.
8. Cool finger print sensor. Can record multiple finger prints from both hands.
9. Enjoying the extra powerful Battery. For the first time, with all that configuration (above) and mail syncs, phone was still showing battery reserve next day.
10. Rapid charging rocks!
11. 4G LTE works fine so far. LTE write/logo came up when it got connected to 4G

Feeling uneasy about:

1. Phone gets hot (39C) after heavy usage (no Games). Not an immediate concern, need to use it further. Slightly warm while charging, which is normal I guess.
2. Youtube Videos showing how we can bend it easily and break.
3. Call quality seems to be a bit low, again need to use it more to understand certain experiences are consistent or is it just the stabilization period.
4. The quality of packing from vendor was not at par for a 40+K phone. In fact, for a moment I thought whether some foul play was involved. I found some dust elements inside the packing as this was not a solid sealed packing like previous Nexus phones (can go back to Nexus 4 – the packing was real good, immediately felt like new). Plz note that this is Vendor packaging that I am criticising, Flipkart’s packing was spot on! Product is of Nov 2015 date and imported 11, 2015. Was worried after reading Nexus9 reviews, many had complained of old stock.

Keep in Mind:

1. Type C charger. It comes with type C to normal USB cable too. Rapid charging is only with the original adapter. USB connection to Computer only allowed slow charging.
2. The phone showed up on my Win10 after connecting through TypeC – USB cable, but that’s all…couldn’t access any folders as nothing showed up.
3. Phone is encrypted but I was able to copy selective data and files from my Nexus4 to 6P using Google Drive, File Manager, Bluetooth. NFC, though got connected, was of not much use. Used SMS Backup/Restore for moving SMS-es to 6P from 4. Didn’t opt for full data transfer as my Nexus4 was encrypted with Corporate config and I wanted to start afresh on 6P.
4. Connect to Wifi after first boot, it downloads System Update.
5. SAR: Now it is at 1.18 (earlier we used to get Body and head SAR readings)
It is a beast but not a beast. Note5 and S6 Edge beats this guy hands down! But I am Android Purist and didn’t feel like throwing another 10-14K for Samsung and it’s blend of android. Don’t think that 4GB RAM of Note5 is very tempting, the actual consumption of the system must be good enough to demand 4GB. Yes, split window is enticing but I am not doing that kind of work on my smartphone. I have my Yogas, Tablets and Desktops.

I am glad that Nexus legacy is back with fury. If you are not a purist you might want to stick to other vendors at much lesser price. Pure Android has many advantages and no debate about that. I am using Spigen Rugged Arrmor (Black) phone cover and FOSO tempered glass (9H) with 99.99% clarity for screen protection. The free cover from Huawei is pretty much useless.

For 6P went with Spigen. I actually wanted the military grade cover from Google store but it is unavailable. Anyway, Spigen cover has the number 1 rating for 6P so far.
Updt (4/12/15): Got the car on NICE road. Total distance of 130Kms, 5 hours, 6P was 40% of the time exposed to direct Sunlight. 5 calls and continuous mail sync-up in the background with 6 incoming messages. The phone survived with battery life present to navigate me safely back home. Didn’t hook it up to Car charger since I am yet to buy the Type C-USB adapter. The phone was hot but, surprisingly not that hot after this ordeal. Had some trouble with Google Maps, at times the data sync-up was not fast enough, especially when the car was doing 145-150kmph and then rapidly slowing down for a turn. There were some problem with directional orientation, almost as if the Compass got it wrong, instead of “left” it would say “right”. Kind of consistent but okay most of the time. Perhaps I should re-do the orientation again.

Xt Bat: Tried my Anker 2nd Gen. Astro3 12800mah and plugged in the 6P. It didn’t do fast charge but Anker having PowerIQ did help a bit. Usually Anker would do fast charge, real fast, on iPads, USB Smartphones but not to 6P to that extent.

Firstly i would like to thank Gionee for bringing such a wonderful smartphone.This is a value for your hard earned money.I brought this phone 2 days back and i am very much satisfied. Finally my wait for a good smartphone with reasonable budget ended.


1. As name suggests MARATHON it is indeed a marathon runner. With 6000 MAH of battery backup you can definitely bet on the battery. I tested on batterys strength it proved its worth.
2. Sexy/Elegant/Classy Look – This is most eye catching feature of Gionee M5. It is very eye catching specially the Gold color.
3. Huge Storage – With 32 GB of internal storage capacity you can never be left behind.
4. Fast processing – With 3 GB RAM the processing is quite fast.
5. Super Touch – The touch screen is very smooth and easy to use.
6. No Heating – There is absolutely no heating issue which i was worried may be.

1. The only drawback which i noticed was charging is slow. This might be because of high battery power the charging is slow.

User Review Samsung Galaxy On7 Pros and Cons

I was looking to buy new phone for my wife and this is the best thing I did.She is super happy and me too 🙂 Here is product review.

Pros of Samsung Galaxy On7

  • Price, yes you get really value for money deal.Excellent build quality
  • Light weight compare to other bulky motorola, asus etc
  • Slim (8.2mm) thick compare to other bulky motorola, asus etc.
  • 5.5′ inch LCD/TFT Full HD screen with 271ppi which is quite good, actually its really good you wont notice a difference at all.
  • 3000mAh monster battery, well it will give you around 2 days of normal usage.
  • CPU/ GPU: Snapdragon 410. No drag, lag or frame drops what-so-ever after using few high end games like Asphalt 8. 1.2GHz Quad core along with placement of SoC makes thermal impact very minimal. So, heating is minimized to a large extent. No heating issue at all. Super fast processor.
  • Excellent design and Gold color is really nice specially for girls. It gives rich look like 30-40k price level phone. Back cover feels and looks like leather, even though its just plastic cover.
  • RAM 1.5 is well enough to give you lag free experience. Using from few days no lag or restart or anything pure joy 🙂
  •  13 + 5MP camera capture great pics in details.Excellent Radio reception
  • Android OS, v5.1 (Lollipop) Excellent GPS signal. It catch signal inside house too, which normally other phone doesn’t.
  • Dual sim and both sim slot supports 4G. Excellent audio quality on call and normal song play.
  • Last but not least about Samsung, Brand value yes no other phone(except iphone) can beat samsung in brand value. I sold 3 years old Samsung Grand 1 phone for 6k on olx within 1 day.
  • Compare to lenovo who took almost 3 month to sold at 4k price.

Cons of Samsung Galaxy On7

8GB (4.5GB usable) is quite less as this phone doesnt give you option to install all apps directly on SD card but you can move few apps. They should have atleast given option to install apps directly on sd card like my old grand phone had.

I would say just click on buy now button and enjoy this master piece at this low price. Awesome phone.

Pros Cons Like Dislike of Honor 4X Why You Need to Buy this Phone

I have HONOR 4X in flash sale on 6 April 2015. So, its about 1.5 month completed of use, still doesn’t found any issue…
Played around with my honor 4x and most of time with the camera.
Things that I liked:
– Display quality is good. But I am not stunned though, as I have see many HD and Full HD display. 100% justification done by Honor 4X
– Lock screen wallpapers. Everytime I unlock, it shows new wallpaper. The wallpaper selection is very good and there are tons of wallpapers available within the OS
– Camera Lens. The camers is able to produce great shots in day light, good photos during sunset. At night, I got decent quality pics, but I need to practise by tweaking the settings.
– I’ve never seen such a great depth of field in the closup shots by any mobile camera. Honor 4x Just rocks in this aspect.
– The closup photos are very sharp which is great.
– The photo stitch in panorma mode is accurate
– Some good options in the camera app like motion tracker, Bulb mode, zero shutter lag. (its funny that the Burst Shot spelling appears as Best Shot)
– Theme Support
– Navigation is smooth and didnt faced any hanging or heating issues yet
– Build Quality
– zero bloatware
– The speaker clarity and loudness. the placement of the speaker is good.
– I want to specifically mention on the build quality of the headphones. I am impressed with the quality of the headphones wire as it is a tangle free (some sort of hard plastic) although not a flat cable type.
– Packaging of the box is outstanding. It was pleasure unboxing such a package
Things I didnt liked:
– the position of rear camera. As it is located in the extreme top corner, people will tend to cover up the lens with fingures quite often.
– Though I am a big techno geek and can use any software without hazzles, for the first time I felt that I need to practise on the EMUI. EMUI definitely requires some time for learning and get used to it.
– The photo editor is inconvenient to use. The design is not good. Not a problem though, I always use Pixlr for Photo editing
– Noticed that the camera app is getting confused in focusing while taking landscape photos in auto mode. You need to tap on the screen twice or thrice to focus. You need some practise to get sharp landscape photos.
– I did not get a sharp photo in panorma in my first attempt. I need to try another time
– The camera app design could have been better. It is too much simple.
– The settings show up in a black text in white screen. May be I got used to the settings in white text on a black background.
Things yet to test:
– Call quality
– Network stability
– Gaming
– yet to explore the tweaks
I will try to update some more things tomorrow. Unfortunately, I just have one more day to have the honor 4x with me. I am going to make it a gift pack as I want to gift it to my wife.
As I know photography a lot and have a Canon DSLR, I think I judged the camera quality very well.
