My first Nexus

Nexus 6P

Just wanted to make a quick post about my impressions as a Huawei Nexus 6P owner.  This is my very first Nexus phone and my experience thus far has been AWESOME.

For quite a long time, I have been a Samsung user like so many others in the world.  But, during the past two years, I have been making videos (Mobile Geezer on You Tube) and writing articles for Bane Tech about phones and other tech-related subjects. If you follow many tech sites and channels as I do, you immediately realize that tech folks are greatly enamored with Nexus phones. Even when those phones come up short in some of the specs. Android tech bloggers and You Tubers love the stock Android experience. NOW, I understand why.

Nexus Smartphones

Owning a Nexus gives one a feeling of purity that you just can’t get from any other phone. I currently have a Samsung Galaxy Note 3, an Alcatel Idol 3 and an Axon Pro. The Galaxy is heavily skinned with Touchwiz (this was out before Samsung decided to ease up a bit on the bloatware, as they have for the past year or so). The Idol 3 and Axon phones are lightly skinned and are not so far from stock Android. But, now that I have the Nexus 6P, I understand the love and admiration for a pure Android experience much better than before. It’s as if with any other skinned phone, you want to say, “Get out of the way.” It also doesn’t hurt that this Huawei version of the Nexus is generally considered to be the best Nexus ever. At least, that seems to be the general perception.

In the next few weeks, I will be making videos and writing articles of my time with the Nexus 6P. But, I did want to make the point that I now ‘get it’. The pure Android experience light has gone off in my head and no matter what other phones I own or review in the future, I probably will not be without a Nexus phone for any amount of time going forward.

Great job Google and Huawei! And, THANKS.
