As we had been flooded by different flagship Android devices these past few weeks, we thought that we have seen it all! And then the metallic Google Nexus 6P of Huawei enters the stream. Who would have thought now that we’ve seen the best Android?
Packaging and Accessories
The Google team for Nexus 6P must have been proud and we can obviously tell that as the regular Nexus packaging is now endowed with the proud letter ‘P’ on front. Other than the P, the packaging holds the minimalist appeal that can take the breath away of purists. (By the way, Nexus 6P is available in three color variants: aluminum, graphite and frost. Certified purist through and through, right?)
Inside the box, you can immediately see the quick start guide that discusses the handset’s main points. You also have other pamphlets that further show the awesomeness of Google 6P. Also, you get a wall charger and two different charging cables—one is the USB Type C to USB Type C cable and the other is the USB Type C to USB Type A cable wire— which offers great convenience for you.
Great Points about Marshmallow
6P experiences rise of temperature as you update 10 to 15 apps but that’s only normal and you don’t have to worry. Other than the initial update, you might never experience the heat again.
Now, Google’s answer to Apple’s virtual assistant, Siri, is the latest Google Now On Tap found in Android Marshmallow OS. The feature enables you gather information by merely tapping. For example you found this wonderful image and would want to know all about it. Google will then provide you the data you need by merely tapping on the image. It can be a little bit scary at one point wherein you can stop where you are, press a button, and let Google do ‘its thing’ basing on what it can ‘see’ and/or ‘hear’ on its surrounding. It can then provide you the info or links you can sort out yourself and help you decide.
