Google Nexus 6P review: the best phablet available.

According to the experts at iFixit, Google’s new Huawei-built handset isn’t exactly easy to repair, earning a failing grade of two out of 10 in terms of reparability (with 10 being the easiest to repair). This struggle was down largely to the smartphone’s aluminium unibody case, which required a “curved razor blade, safety glasses and prayers” to pull apart and risked damaging the glass camera cover in the process. “It’s very difficult, although not impossible, to open the device without damaging the glass camera cover,” iFixit said. “Because of the unibody design, this makes every component extremely difficult to replace.” The display on the , in particular, is very problematic to replace, so if you’re prone to a smashed smartphone screen, or alcohol, this might not be the best smartphone for you.

’s Nexus 6P is definitely the new premium smartphone from and Huawei, but repairing this premium phone will not be an easy task, according to iFixit. Instead, maybe you should take a look at Motorola’s so-called “shatterproof” Moto X Force. iFixit said: “The display assembly cannot be replaced without tunneling through the entire phone. Following Motorola last time round, this is the first time Google has partnered with rising Chinese smartphone manufacturer Huawei and the results are excellent. This makes one of most common repairs, a damaged screen, difficult to accomplish.” The Nexus 6P does have some redeeming features, though. iFixit said in the teardown that the internal design is pretty impressive, and that both camera modules and the USB-C port are all relatively easy to remove once you get inside. IFixit had to remove the motherboard to get at the rear camera, but once it accomplished that feat, the team found it fairly easy to disconnect and remove.

The all-metal and glass phablet has a plain front – a glass screen with a pair of stereo front-facing speakers at the top and bottom and a notification light in the top left – but the back is relatively unusual. The top bulges in thickness slightly, forming a glass window that contains the camera, as well as NFC and other sensors that don’t work well through metal. Running on Google’s latest version of Android, Marshmallow, Nexus 6P was launched at a price Rs 39,999 (32GB) and Rs 42,999 (64 GB) with two colors Aluminum (Silver) and Graphite (Black) in India.

It’s also colourful and bright, but not quite as vibrant as Samsung’s highly saturated AMOLED screens on the Galaxy S6 series, which some may prefer. During the tear down, iFixit found components from various manufacturers such 3GB RAM from SK Hynix, Qualcomm processor and flash storage from SandDisk. In other devices, notably especially the Sony Xperia Z3+, the processor has a tendency to overheat, making the phone overly hot and reducing its performance. I spent 2.5 hours browsing in mixed connectivity conditions, four hours listening to music via Bluetooth headphones, around 20 minutes of gaming and a couple of photos per day. Wireless charging and two-day battery life would be nice, but Google’s new Doze power saving system will make it last considerably longer if you leave it idle on a desk for most of the day.

One very short standard USB-A to USB-C for plugging the phone into a computer or battery backup and one longer USB-C to USB-C cable for plugging into the charger. For more information on Doze, app standby and Google’s new Now on Tap digital assistant, please read: The Nexus Imprint fingerprint sensor on the back of the phone is the best I have used to date and is that found on the Nexus 5X. USB-C is also a lot less fiddly to use and battery life is good enough to see you through one heavy day with enough juice to see you home from a night out.
