Nexus 6P or Nexus 6?

  1. 6 (it's still a great phone in 2016)

    50.0%
  2. 6P (it's worth the extra $250, and a lot better than the 6)

    50.0%

    Hello, so you guys might have seen my post about getting the Nexus 6 or not, because I don't have a whole lot of money right now. Well now I'm thinking of just biting the bullet and getting the 6P. What do you guys think, worth the extra $250? Or will I be happy with the 6? Sorry to make another post, I'm just really stumped.

    What if I don't care about the fingerprint scanner and it being smaller? Would the 6 still be a great choice? Although I would like a better camera...

    Looks like a great phone, but I really want a big, AMOLED screen...

    I have the Nexus 6 (have since launch - so coming up on 18 months) and I love it. If you don't care about the finger print scanner, and you don't mind the size (it's huge) then you'll love this phone. Best part is it's very competitively priced right now so you really can't go wrong. The camera is not as bad as they make it out to be and actually I think it's quite capable. It still has competitive specs, very speedy, great media (speakers rock) and it functions flawlessly. I love mine. Never had an issue with the non-removable battery and I am not a space hog so I don't need micro SD. So if, as I said, the fingerprint scanner, size, non-removable battery and no SD don't bother you you can't go wrong. Hope this helps.

    Why would you buy the 6P at this point at the very least it's not worth the full price it's an old phone now

    Maybe you should wait one month until the Galaxy and the G5 come out in the 6P will be $200

    It's about 5 months old to be precise, so mid-cycle. And Google will not suddenly halve the price because the S7 comes out, so unless you are talking about second-hand phones $200 is an unrealistic expectation.

    Yeah, probably the 6p price will follow the pattern of the 6, delayed about one year.

    The N6 had a series of drops over summer 2015 and bottomed out at around $300 for 64gb version where it's remained (off and on) for a few months. That low price ($300) first appeared around black Friday 2015 when the phone was over a year old and the next nexus (6p) was already out.

    I bought my Nexus 6 in December 2015 at that same price, very happy with it:
    The size is a big positive (not a negative).
    Phone is fast and reliable.
    Easier to tweak than other phones I've had (Samsung)
    Camera is average, but I use a Nikon Coolpix 620 when I want really good pictures.
    Battery life is average (a full morning to evening use including 3-5 hours screen on time will use close to full battery life... I normally top off in the late afternoon)

    Nexus 6p probably does better on battery and camera, but not hundreds of dollars better. At this point I'm thinking I'll hang onto this phone a full two years unless something unexpected happens.
