From a design standpoint, this is the most premium-looking Nexus we’ve seen since the original Nexus One all those years ago. Huawei’s taste for metal unibody phones shines through, with a phone that looks incredibly elegant despite its obvious large size. The aluminum chassis will come with a choice four different anodized finishes: Aluminum, Gprahite, Frost, and a Japan-exlusive gold. The only part which isn’t metal on the back is the slightly protruding camera hump. The phone measures in at just 7.3mm thin, 77.8mm wide and 159.4mm tall, making it smaller in every dimension than the current Nexus 6.

The 12.3MP rear camera is housed in a large pill-shaped glass panel along with a dual-LED flash. It’s also equipped with optical image stabilization and 4K video recording, along with an f/2.0 aperture to ensure low light pictures look as good as they can from a sensor this small. It also has pixels much bigger than standard smartphone cameras and can take 30fps bursts of photos to help create cool GIFs and choose the best pictures.

That’s especially true when it comes to the battery, but something especially odd and potentially dangerous has been happening with the Nexus 6P, and Google still hasn’t fixed it.

Google’s Pixel smartphones support a handful of features that the Nexus 6P or Nexus 5X don’t. Why not? According to Google, the hardware doesn’t support at least some of them — namely Night Light and Fingerprint “Moves.” Google confirmed outright last month that the Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X physically couldn’t support fingerprint gestures since they require the new fingerprint sensor…
