The Google Nexus 6P Review

Battery Life

Battery life on the Nexus 6P will be a quite interesting story. On one hand we have a very large 3450mAh battery, but on the other hand we have an AMOLED screen that is less efficient than most LCDs, all of which is driven by the Snapdragon 810, which trails in efficiency. Due to the Note 5 and Mi Note Pro both sharing the same form-factor and a 5.7” 1440p screen, they present perfect comparison devices that isolate either the screen advantage or disadvantage (Mi Note Pro) or the SoC differences between the devices (Note 5).

Web Browsing Battery Life (WiFi)

We start with our web-browsing battery test. Here we see the Nexus 6P reach 9.9h of runtime. While by itself this doesn’t represent a very bad figure and most people would be able to make do with such a number, when comparing it to other devices it represents a quite disappointing performance as the increased battery size doesn’t seem to give the 6P any advantage. The 6P reaches same battery figure as the Mi Note Pro which sports a smaller 3090mAh battery (11% disadvantage). As both devices sport the same SoC, any difference in the web browsing test is most likely due the power efficiency disadvantage of the AMOLED screen on the part of the 6P.

On the other hand if we want to look at the difference in efficiency of SoC, we can use the Note 4 as a relatively fair comparison. The Nexus 6P sports a screen that is ~5% more efficient and has a 7% advantage in battery capacity, yet it manages to fall behind the Note 4 with Snapdragon 805 by 16%, or almost 2 full hours.

Web Browsing Battery Life (4G LTE)

On the 4G LTE test, as with other reviews in the past I have to warn that I have worse cell network signal conditions compared to our other mobile reviewers Joshua Ho and Brandon Chester, making this not a fully accurate apples-to-apples comparison in terms of testing conditions. Keeping that in mind, we see the Nexus 6P also struggle to compete with the other devices in our results database.

PCMark - Work Battery Life

PCMark’s battery life test is a more balanced workload that compromises of more real-world use-cases. Due to the test also having a lower average picture level (darker contents), the AMOLED screen is able to regain competitiveness against the Mi Note Pro. Again, mostly due to the efficiency disadvantage of the SoC, the differences between the Nexus 6P and the Note 5 remain large in this test as the former manages to last almost 1.5h longer even though the 6P has a 15% larger battery. Disregarding the competition, the 6P still manages to show some good battery scores in this test, although we do have some concerns over the performance demonstrated in the writing-subtest.

BaseMark OS II Battery Life

BaseMark OS II’s battery test is a very heavy CPU test that if more of a sustained performance and overall device TDP benchmark. Here the Nexus 6P lasts a little over 4 hours. As we’ve seen in the device thermals section from earlier, there’s a significant difference in long-term performance between devices even if they sport the same SoC.

How long a device can last in such a heavy load test is thus mostly a function of the thermal settings of the device, which does not give any good indication of the overall efficiency of the device. For example a given device can end up with a low battery runtime, but may have actually have better efficiency than one with higher battery runtimes. This rule is generally limited to synthetic scenarios as real-world scenarios where a device is thermally limited are generally rare.

Again for this review I feel I need to go a tangent to better explain why the Nexus 6P ends up with the battery life it has. The Snapdragon 810 and 808 unfortunately suffer from exceptionally bad efficiency that affects most of this year’s devices, Nexus 6P included. As we can see in the above graph, both SoCs exhibit worse performance/W efficiency than last year’s Snapdragon 800 series (805 included). For the Nexus 6P this is especially worrying as it would mean the device is actually less efficient than the Nexus 6 when it comes to computational loads. Unfortunately it seems that this year Samsung is alone in being able to showcase an improvement over last year’s devices courtesy of the Exynos 7420 enjoying a 2-3x lead in power efficiency over this year's competing high-end SoCs.

GFXBench 3.0 Battery Life

Lastly on GFXBench, the Nexus 6P ends up with 4.2 hours runtime on the on-screen battery test. This is a good result for the phone, even though it’s required to throttle to about 50% of its peak performance for most of the duration of the test to maintain reasonable skin temperatures. Here Qualcomm still has a considerable advantage over ARM’s Mali GPUs so that the Adreno 430 still is very competitive even though it has to deal with a process node disadvantage. It will be definitely be interesting to see how the Snapdragon 820’s Adreno 530 will be able to shake up the field.

Overall, the Nexus 6P offers what one would subjectively call good battery life. The large battery largely makes up for any SoC inefficiencies and we’ve even seen that the AMOLED display is near being on par with LCD’s power efficiency. If I seem a bit harsh it’s because I cannot shake the feeling that had the Nexus 6P come out with either the Snapdragon 805 or 820 we’d have seen much better battery figures more in line with the Note 5.

Charge Time

The Nexus 6P ships with a [email protected] charger. The charger uses a USB Type-C connector, so you need a Type-C to Type-C cable to be able to charge the device. The Nexus 6P does ship with one out of the box, but I question Google’s decision as it would have been much more practical to receive a more traditional USB A to USB C cable to allow the Nexus 6P to charge from existing sources without having to buy an additional cable (technically the 6P does also come with such a cable, but at only about 15cm in length it’s very impractical).

The Nexus 6P along with the 5X are some of the first devices to come with USB Power Delivery 2.0, the official specification for device charging as opposed to more proprietary charger communication protocols such as those from Qualcomm (Quickcharge) or Adaptive Fast Charging that is used in Samsung chargers.

What seems to be interesting about the charging behaviour is that there’s visibly more charging “steps” than other devices. The period that is usually called the fast-charging phase of the charging cycle runs up to 40% battery capacity. Here the battery cell receives up a bit over 12.5W of charge power, after which it steadily reduces the input current until it enters another charge pattern from 50 to 80% coming in at around 10W. Finally at 80% the device switches to trickle-charging as the input current exponentially decays over time.

Charge Time

What is worrying is that the battery charge indicator is extremely inaccurate at high charge levels. The device reports 100% much earlier than other devices. In fact there’s still over 2W of power coming into the battery as it reports being fully charged. This goes on for another 40 minutes, representing an actually significant amount of energy representing about 7% of the battery’s true capacity. As such, the Nexus 6P doesn’t receive a good grade in the charge time metric due to its misleading charging indicator behaviour.

Nevertheless, it’s able to charge from 0 to 40% in 30 minutes which is outstandingly fast. 45 to 80% takes about an equal amount of time which means for the large majority of use-cases where you are in desperate need of power the Nexus 6P will be able to serve you well (As long as you have your charger and cable with you).


The LG Google Nexus 5X or Huawei Google Nexus 6P supports the new base power levels of 1.5 Amps and 3 Amps enabled by USB Type-C to provide rapid charging to these phones.  These phones also come with USB Type-C chargers that support 5 Volts @ 3 Amps which provide quicker charging than legacy USB chargers.  But what happens if you lose this charger or need to charge in a hurry when you don't have the charger with you? 

One of the nice things about Android Marshmallow on the Nexus LG Google Nexus 5X and Huawei Google Nexus 6P is the ability to see how quickly you are charging.  When these phones are connected to the USB Type-C charger that came shipped with the phone, you will always see the phone is 'Rapidly Charging' on the home screen.

Apple also has a Apple 29W USB-C Power Adapter that supports USB Power Delivery.  Unfortunately it can only supply a little over 10 Watts to the LG Google Nexus 5X which the Nexus 5X reports as just 'Charging' instead of 'Charging Rapidly'.

If you don't want to go USB Power Delivery and instead try the LG Google Nexus 5X with the Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 based charger that came with the Nexus 6X, the charger only supported about 10 Watts to the Nexus 5X since the Nexus 5X doesn't support Qualcomm' Quick Charge technology.

Connecting the LG Google Nexus 5X to the Apple iPad Pro through the Apple USB-C to Lightning Cable, you won't get any power since the iPad Pro only consumes power and doesn't provide power as per the USB Power Delivery specification.

The LG Google Nexus 5X can also work with the Dell 30 Watts Wall AC Adapter that comes with the Dell XPS 12 9250 Laptop which is able to provide rapid charging to the Nexus 5X.

The LG Google Nexus 5X can also be charged by the Dell XPS 12 9250 Laptop itself which guarantees a max of 15 Watts per USB Type-C port as per the Thunderbolt 3 specification.

If you are in a real hurry, the LG Google Nexus 5X can also get charged by the LG G5 but will be charged a lot slower than the other methods above given the lower power provided by the LG G5.

Most of the Nexus 6P smartphones are problem free, but some have reported that the Nexus 6P not charging correctly. Some Nexus 6P owners thought that the USB cable was an issue and went out and purchased a new charger, instead some quick methods that we’re about to suggest can generally fix the problem when the Nexus 6P not charging when plugged in.
Some of the other most common causes of the problem of the charger on the Nexus 6P not working may be the following, including the Nexus 6P not charging – grey battery problem:

  • Bent, broken or pushed in connectors on the device or battery.
  • Phone is defective.
  • Damaged battery.
  • Defective charging unit or cable.
  • Temporary phone problem.
  • Phone is defective.

Changing Cables
The first thing to check when the Nexus 6P not charging properly is the charging cable. Sometimes the charger cable has been damaged or lost the proper connection to charge the Nexus 6P. Before purchasing a new cable, try switching it out with another USB cable that works to see if the issue is with the cable. If the other USB cable charges the Nexus 6P, then think about getting a new Nexus 6P cable charger here.

Sometimes the reason that the Nexus 6P not charging when plugged in is because the software needs a reboot. This method may be a temporary fix the problem, but does help fix the charging issue on the Nexus 6P. Read the detailed guide here.
Clean USB Port
Another common issue with the Nexus 6P not charging via usb is that there is something blocking the connection to the smartphone. It could be debris, dirt or lint that stops the connection. A good way to fix this issue is by placing a small needle or paper click and move it around in the USB charging port to get everything out. The majority of the time, this is the main issue when the Nexus 6P is not charging properly. But it’s important to note that when cleaning the USB port, be careful not to damage anything and clean it out gently.
Get Support From Authorized Technician
If none of the above methods work for fixing the Nexus 6P not charging problem, another suggestion would be to take the smartphone and get it checked out by a Nexus technician. If for some reason the smartphone is need of repair and they might be able to provide a replacement under the warranty.

Katya came to her senses a little and tried to cover herself with her hands, but I quickly Sonya: (has to tear it off) That's it. So, that is why you were so frightened then, shuddered, got angry. (looks at the hook) And what about me. He: (takes the hook, throws it out the window) Bye with you, I. Sonya: (looks after) And if she comes.
