It’s not even the 25th yet and it already feels like Christmas. Why? The Nexus 6P has FINALLY launched in Malaysia. Ooh, that tingling of holiday magic just sent little waves of tech-gasm down our bodies. Of course, not everyone shares our enthusiasm, but we think we’ve come up with a little magic of our own to help you experience this euphoria.
If you aren’t a “tech enthusiast” like we are, or if you want to convince your “non-techie” friend that this is the Android smartphone to get, well you’re in luck. We, the ever helpful folks at SoyaCincau.com, have donned our holiday themed thinking caps and come up with a list of 6 reasons why you should get the Nexus 6P.

By far the sweetest iteration of Google’s mobile OS has to be the white, fluffy one. Android 6.0 Marshmallow comes with a host of features that are sure to satisfy anyone’s sweet tooth. From quality of life improvements like Doze (improves battery life by “dozing” the device) to new (dare we say revolutionary) updates like Now on Tap, the Nexus 6P has got it all.
In case that wasn’t sweet enough, Nexus devices are also first in line for any Android updates, so that brand new Nexus 6P will stay brand new for quite a long time. As the proverbial cherry on top of this sinful dessert we’ve built, Nexus devices will also come stock, that means no bloatware taking up your precious internal storage.

Behind the Nexus 6P’s stormtrooper-esque visor likes its party piece, a 12.3-megapixel primary shooter with a large (and fast) f/2.0 aperture lens. That’s not all, the device’s camera also comes with a laser autofocus and phase detection autofocus which translates to super fast focusing speeds.
That’s not all, the camera sensor comes with large 1.55 micron pixels. If you’re a camera buff like we are, then we’re sure you know what large pixels mean. For those who aren’t though, the TL;DR is larger pixels = more light = better low light photography. Bigger is better after all…well, most of the time.

For added security, the Nexus 6P comes with a super snappy fingerprint scanner, dubbed Nexus Imprint, at the back of the device. All it takes is a single touch to wake that gorgeous 5.7-inch quad-HD AMOLED display. It also lets you store up to five different fingers so you can either set up multiple of your own fingers or share the unlock between your friends (not recommended though).

This is the first Nexus device to come dressed in glorious metal. It has a metal unibody with a brushed back coupled with Corning’s Gorilla Glass 4 which should make it more durable and resistant to bumps and scratches. Despite its size, it fits really well in the hand with chamfered rails along the edges which are edgy and grippy, but not sharp.
[nextpage title=”Media in your palm”]
The Holy Grail of smartphone speaker technology is the front facing speaker. Nothing beats it for sheer media enjoyment and immersion. Thankfully, Google’s latest and greatest sports a pretty decent pair of front facing speakers, not quite BoomSound, but better than any other non-front facing unit.
Pair that with the Nexus 6P’s 5.7″ quad-HD AMOLED display and you’ve got a pretty awesome media consumption device.
[nextpage title=”Future proof”]
The future is now. At least, it should be now. Some tried to bring the future here earlier but ended up being ridiculed by an Amazon vigilante. In any case, the Nexus 6P comes equipped with USB Type-C which promises far better performances (both in charging and data transfer capabilities) than its previous generations. It’s also reversible so no more fumbling around when trying to charge. Oh and did we mention it also comes with a 3A power brick that supports fast charging? Well, it does.
