The Nexus doesn't quite have budget pricing, but considering its build
quality and internal hardware, its pricing is going to be tough to beat.
If the experience it provides is what we'd expect from its software,
specs and feature list, then it could end up being one of the better
smartphone buys this holiday season. Stay tuned.

Choosing between the best from Google and Apple is a lot of fun this year.
Watching Google and Apple compete for our attention is interesting for a
number of reasons, but the biggest one has to be how vastly different their
approaches are to certain things. Smartphones have been a fascinating
example of this over the past few years, especially to watch as Apple and
Google slowly move toward one another from these opposing perspectives.
This year Google and Apple both released a pair of smartphones, one smaller
and one larger.
If you take a look at the larger of these two offerings, the Huawei-made
Nexus 6P and Apple's iPhone 6s Plus, you'll find a pair of phones built
with different goals in mind that come together to be remarkably similar.
As we appreciate those similarities, it's not hard to see which company is
going to be making significant changes in the next generation and why.
Comparing this year's iPhone and this year's Nexus isn't usually all that
interesting, because Google's partnerships with hardware partners are
usually derived from an existing popular phone and so we've usually
already seen what the compare will look like. This year is fun not only
because that isn't true, but also because few users in the US have been
given a reason to care about Huawei as a manufacturer until now.
We've got a genuinely new hardware profile from a locally lesser-known
manufacturer that is following Google's lead to build something interesting,
and the result is the Nexus 6P.
Sitting this phone down next to the iPhone 6s Plus, the first thing you'll
notice is how remarkably similar these phones are in profile.
The Nexus 6P is just about exactly as thin and wide as the iPhone 6s Plus,
but slightly taller and featuring a more prominent camera bulge at the top.
Apple's design hasn't changed from last year, as expected in an "s" release,
which means you have a tall, flat piece of machined aluminum that curves
nicely along the sides with antennae bands along the top and bottom.
Huawei's (Nexus 6P) design offers a little more style, with a slightly curved
back and what they call diamond-cut edges to give it a little bit of extra shine.
The front of these phones is where you'll see the most significant differences.
Apple's design puts the fingerprint sensor on the front of the phone and the
speaker on the bottom, where Huawei opts for a fingerprint sensor on the back
and a pair of speakers on the front. The front facing cameras are positioned
roughly the same, and while both phones have some healthy top and bottom bezel
as a result of their hardware placement choices it's clear Huawei's design
allows for a slightly better screen to bezel ratio, which means more screen
to play on the Nexus 6P.

Under that glass, Google and Apple start to do things a little differently.
Huawei's 2560x1440 resolution AMOLED display isn't appreciably better than
Apple's 1920x1080 resolution IPS LCD display when watching a video or playing
a game, but makes all the difference when looking closely at photos or reading
text on the screen.
Powering the 6P's display is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, which on
top of having plenty of its own performance problems in phones prior to Huawei's
Nexus isn't nearly as capable as Apple's custom A9 processor.
With this processor and only 2GB of RAM, the iPhone 6s Plus can launch its
camera half a second faster than the Nexus 6P just about every time, and
when launching big games like Vainglory side-by-side the iPhone repeatedly
beat the Nexus 6P by almost two seconds.
This performance difference isn't noticeable when performing day to day
tasks like checking email or social apps, but with the bigger apps the
difference couldn't be more clear.
There's not much point to all that power if you can't make it through a full
day, and that's actually something both the Nexus 6P and iPhone 6s Plus do
well enough that there's no real concern. On paper you'd think Huawei's 3450
mAh battery would last a little longer than Apple's 2750 mAh battery, but in
practice both phones wind up getting through a 15-hour day with around 18%
Google's use of USB-C in this generation of Nexus phones means that not only
do these phones have a reversible cable similar to Apple's Lightning cable,
but the new USB tech means the Nexus 6P can be fully charged in half the
time it takes the iPhone 6s Plus.
Few companies have made as big a deal about the capabilities of their cameras
as Apple has in the iPhone line over the last couple years, but this year
Android manufacturers hit back hard in several significant ways.
Google's partnership with Sony resulted in an amazing new sensor being put in
the Nexus 6P that relies on 1.55 Ám pixels and a f/2.0 aperture to capture a
lot of light and turn that into very nice pictures.
Apple's jump from 8MP to 12MP was mostly spent making sure the new sensor
maintained the same high quality and impressive color reproduction as the
photo size increased, and to say the company succeeded is an understatement.
Where most smartphone sensors struggled to maintain quality with the increase
in image size, the iPhone 6s Plus handled it well and included optical image
stabilization for better photos and video.
If you compare the Nexus 6P and the iPhone 6s Plus photo capabilities side by
side, you'll find that Google's software crushes Apple's low light capabilities
and does an amazing job with HDR photography in extreme lighting conditions,
but it's still a little easier to just pull the iPhone out and take a quick
photo of something in ideal conditions.
As you can see, comparing these two phones is weirdly fascinating this year.
Google has released an entertainment powerhouse with a better display, audio,
and photography capabilities than we've ever seen before in a Nexus, which
are all things previously considered Apple's strong suits.
At the same time, Apple's big phone this year is rocking a noticeably more
capable processor that also means the phone gets better battery even with a
slightly smaller batter than before, while the more powerful processor has
traditionally been something Android fans have held over Apple users when
debating who makes the better phone.
Google's Nexus line grew up quite a bit this year with the Nexus 6P,
which makes the final point in comparing these two phones even more fun
When you see the $749 16gb iPhone 6s Plus next to the $499 32gb Nexus 6P,
the natural question to ask is whether this year's iPhone is $250 better
than this year's Nexus, and the answer is absolutely not.
FINGERPRINT UNLOCKNexus Imprint is fast, but you need to pay close attention to the setup.
Just like the Nexus 5X Imprint setup, you only get six captures to set up
a finger, so it's important to get as much of the finger as possible.
Try to make sure you have a large portion of your fingerprint on the
reader for each pass. The setup directions are clear and easy to follow,
so follow them.
Taking time to set things up correctly means Nexus Imprint will be more
accurate and consistent. Accuracy and consistency will help with the
"learning" process Google's Dave Burke talked about when the Nexus 6P
