I bought this phone in 2016 and although Google abandoned it after Android Oreo, a little system mod sees this stalwart of smartphones still going strong with me in 2021. I like this phone so much for the screen apart from its performance that I bought a second one dedicated to working with external accessories. If it wasn't for the awful battery performance/capacity this phone would be exceptional value whether new or used. I've been through three different makes since buying this phone but none of them compare to its overall performance. I love it for watching movies with excellent audio output to accompany the outstanding screen. Nowadays it/they take pride of place for important use that does not demand all day standby on battery. Actual communication takes second place at the moment with an undemanding Samsung Galaxy A71 that has a battery that can last two days with ordinary moderate use including the odd YouTube video. The screen detail and lack of stereo speakers make video watching very dull in comparison with the Nexus. The Nexus also feels as solid as any other phone I've had and more so than most. So enough praise. If you're into replacing the operating system this phone could go on for a very long time.

Pros

  • Screen
  • Processing power
  • Sound output
  • Build quality
  • Decent cameras

Cons

  • Battery life
  • Lack of Google updates

Design

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
We consider a thinner chassis better because it makes the product more compact and portable. Thinness is a feature highlighted by many manufacturers of mobile devices, but it is essential for a wide range of products.
3.width

77.8mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
4.height

159.3mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.

Display

Pixel density is a measurement of a screen's resolution, expressed as the number of pixels per inch (PPI) on the screen. A higher pixel density translates into more clarity and sharpness for the images rendered on the screen, thus improving the quality of the viewing experience.
2.resolution

1440 x 2560px

Resolution is an essential indicator of a screen's image quality, representing the maximum amount of pixels that can be shown on the screen. The resolution is given as a compound value, comprised of horizontal and vertical pixels.
The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
Damage-resistant glass (such as Corning Gorilla Glass or Asahi Dragontrail Glass) is thin, lightweight, and can withstand high levels of force.
5.Has an OLED or AMOLED display
βœ”Google Nexus 6P
OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) displays are formed of organic materials that emit light. They have higher contrast ratios and wider viewing angles compared to LCDs. AMOLED and POLED are types of OLED displays.
Gorilla Glass is one of the most popular brands of chemically strengthened glass, manufactured by Corning. Several versions have been developed, the newer ones being more durable and providing better damage resistance.
7.has a touch screen
βœ”Google Nexus 6P
You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.

Performance

Random-access memory (RAM) is a form of volatile memory used to store working data and machine code currently in use. It is a quick-access, temporary virtual storage that can be read and changed in any order, thus enabling fast data processing.
The CPU speed indicates how many processing cycles per second can be executed by a CPU, considering all of its cores (processing units). It is calculated by adding the clock rates of each core or, in the case of multi-core processors employing different microarchitectures, of each group of cores.
The internal storage refers to the built-in storage space available in a device for system data, apps, and user-generated data. With a large amount of internal storage, you can save more files and apps on your device.
The system on a chip (SoC) has an integrated LTE cellular chip. LTE is capable of downloading at faster speeds than older, 3G technology.
Small semiconductors provide better performance and reduced power consumption. Chipsets with a higher number of transistors, semiconductor components of electronic devices, offer more computational power. A small form factor allows more transistors to fit on a chip, therefore increasing its performance.
The graphics processing unit (GPU) has a higher clock speed.
It can support faster memory, which will give quicker system performance.
A 32-bit operating system can only support up to 4GB of RAM. 64-bit allows more than 4GB, giving increased performance. It also allows you to run 64-bit apps.
Using big.LITTLE technology, a chip can switch between two sets of processor cores to maximize performance and battery life. For example, when playing a game the more powerful cores will be used to increase performance, whereas checking email will use the less powerful cores to maximize battery life.

Cameras

The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the main camera. A higher megapixel count means that the camera is capable of capturing more details. However, the megapixel count is not the only important element determining the quality of an image.
The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the front camera. A higher megapixel count means that the front camera is capable of capturing more details, an essential factor for taking high-resolution selfies.
Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect the vibrations of the camera. The lens adjusts the optical path accordingly, ensuring that any type of motion blur is corrected before the sensor captures the image.
The maximum resolution available for videos shot with the main camera. Although it may be possible to choose among other frame rates, those recordings usually have lower resolutions.
5.Has a dual-tone LED flash
βœ”Google Nexus 6P
A dual-tone flash has LED lights with different color temperatures, delivering a better color balance to photos and videos.
6.has a BSI sensor
βœ”Google Nexus 6P
A BSI (backside illuminated) sensor is a camera image sensor which captures better quality images in poor lighting conditions, and offers better overall sharpness and image quality.
When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.
Slow-motion is an artistic video effect that makes time seem to go slower. It is achieved by recording a video at a higher frame-rate than the standard playback rate of 24fps or 30fps. Depending on camera capabilities, frame rates for slow-motion videos vary between 60fps and 960fps.
9.has a built-in HDR mode
βœ”Google Nexus 6P
It can automatically shoot pictures with a higher dynamic range (HDR).

Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.
More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.

Battery

Battery power, or battery capacity, represents the amount of electrical energy that a battery can store. More battery power can be an indication of longer battery life.
The ultra power-saving mode, also called low power mode, is an effective way to extend the battery life of the device. Usually, it involves limiting screen brightness and contrast, disabling location services, restricting connectivity, and turning off nonessential apps.
