The Nexus 6P: A second opinion

It’s been a couple years since I had a Nexus phone I truly wanted to carry around. That’s changed in a big way with the Nexus 6P.

When we started our series of “second opinion” reviews, the idea was simple. Good reviews are a mix of the objective and subjective, and we all have different ideas about what makes a good smartphone good. Maybe one reviewer will spot something another didn’t. Maybe one is inherently biased in one direction or another.

Second opinions are important, and unfortunately nobody else on the Internet is reviewing smartphones these days. (Ed. note: I’ve been told that’s technically no longer true. Go figure.)

This Nexus 6P second opinion will not be one of those dissenting reviews. Jerry unabashedly gushed over the phone in our official take on the phone — “It’s the best Android phone I’ve ever used,” he wrote.

I’ve been using the Nexus 6P full-time for nearly a month now, and I think he’s right. Here’s why.
