Best Camera on a Nexus

The Nexus 6P has a 12.3 MP camera with a 1/2.3 inch sized sensor. According to, it has the one of the best cameras found on a Nexus. In fact, it ranks 3rd overall on their site, with only the Sony Xperia Z5 and the Samsung S6 Edge in front of it.


Huawei really outdid themselves with this one. Dubbed the #KingOfAndroid, the Nexus 6P is one beautiful device. It feels really good in the hand with its all metal unibody design. The AMOLED display is gorgeous, perfect for stock Android.

Admittedly, stock Android is not for everyone (I personally love it!). The Nexus 6P runs on stock (or pure) Android 6.0 Marshmallow. There are no other elements or features that slow it down. And because of this, the UI is butter smooth and fluid.


Check out the Huawei Nexyus 6P at the Huawei Experience store in the SM Mall of Asia. It has a suggested retail price of PHP29,990.
