The Nexus 6P was 2015’s pick for the best smartphone, and this year is no different. Even though it has been a year since its conception, it still performs amiably because its successors, the Pixels, have been unveiled.
The Nexus 6P has the most solid build quality we have seen on a smartphone, but it is still with its drawbacks. For starters, the aluminum body tends to get scratched relatively easily and even though it feels quite nice and smooth, it drastically reduces any grip you have on the smartphone.
For these very reasons, we at JOA recommend that you use cases for your Nexus 6P to give it a flair of style and functionality that it lacks when used without.
