If you like android phones (and I love android phones) then there is no cleaner experience than a Nexus branded phone. I have happily carried the Motorola Nexus 6 since release day, and my wife carries the LG Nexus 5x. Initially, I was concerned I would miss the screen real estate if I upgraded to the Huawei Nexus 6P. Also I was not having any performance issues with the Motorola Nexus 6 so I was in no hurry to upgrade. I spent two weeks with the 6P and I’m never going back.

On paper some of the large differences that jump out:
- The 6p has a slower clock speed but is a 64bit processor with 8 cores.
- The 6P has a lower megapixel (on the rear camera) but a better photo sensor
- The 6P has a bigger battery
- The 6P has a much better front facing camera.
