The P in the name means premium. As Google’s latest flagship Android smartphone, the Nexus 6P carries a lot of bells and whistles. This smartphone comes equipped with a USB Type-C port (complete with a reversible, fast-charging charger that guarantees seven hours of use for only 10 minutes of charging), fingerprint sensor, one of the best rear cameras, and front-facing stereo speakers. Its metal unibody is svelte and nice to the touch.
Some say that the “P” in the Huawei Nexus 6P also stands for “price.” The official price here in the Philippines is Php21,990 (with expected availability in the coming weeks). Is the phone a bargain or not? Tell us what you think in the comments below.
