I've been waiting for Google to be able to export slow motion videos that actually slow down when you want them to. Apparently this is now fixed!

So I present to you, lighting a candle from the smoke.

Islands Brygge, Copenhagen. The best camera is the one you have on you. Upgrading from Nexus 4 to Nexus 6p my "best" camera got a whole lot better!

I must admit I'm pretty impressed with the Nexus 6p camera. This image was taken after sunset (obviously). I pointed the camera, clicked and done... I actually took a second shot because it was too fast... I didn't believe I had actually taken a photo.

What really impressed me was that it looked exactly on the phone as IRL. Very good!

After updating to the new Android N beta I noticed that Method.getAnnotation(class) returns null, when on earlier devices it correctly returns the arguments in the annotation. Just a heads up that this might break your build until Google gets it fixed.

On the spot photo using stock photo app (HDR+). A bit grainy, but impressive none the less.

So I've been having some issues with my Nexus 7 battery life recently... Not really sure what's causing this. I uninstalled Facebook and thought that helped for about a day, but obviously not... :(

The entire 5th part of this screenshot the tablet is sleeping. The screen is off!

A decent writeup about how Nexus phones come to be, including a bunch of other interesting tidbits. Worth a read!

Nexus 6p a week's worth

It's large. Going from a Nexus 4, that was my initial impression, and consistently the first comment from people I've shown it to. Luckily it fits into most of my pockets, but handling it as a one hand sword is both an exercise in channeling your inner Mr. Fantastic to reach across the screen and making sure it doesn't slip out of your hands. The smooth black (I went for black) aluminium back doesn't help.

The size out of the way though, the phone feels very robust (Although it might actually be disturbingly bendable). The aluminium feels cool to the touch and with it's 178 grams there's a certain heft that makes it feel a bit more premium. The snapdragon 810 makes everything fly as you would expect from a 2015 flagship phone and I haven't experienced any excessive heat problems as you might have feared from the 810, but then again, it is version 2.1, so hopefully the heating issue is fixed here.

The Screen
The screen boasts an impressive 1440 x 2560 pixels (The same as my 30" computer monitor) and it shows. Everything is incredibly crisp. Unfortunately the screen is also just a little bit too warm, giving whites a strange yellow tint. Now this by itself is not a huge problem, but looking at images the extra warmth become obvious and everyone looks like they've been living off carrots for a month. You can go to developer settings and set the screen to use the sRGB color profile which will do absolutely nothing.

The Camera
From the limited experience I have had with the camera - mostly taking involuntary portraits of my family in dimly lit restaurants - it is good. It manages to be pretty good at producing an image containing what I see, with sufficient brightness. What has really been stealing my attention though, is the ability to do high speed video recording. This is a new feature, and unfortunately it shows. It's pretty glitchy, but when it works it's incredible! It requires quite a bit of light as any high speed camera would, and what you get is a video with smooth slow motion action. Amazing! Except for the one time where I had to reboot the phone because it did not record at 240fps but at probably 30fps and then just slowed it down to 5fps which wasn't really that satisfying. Or when it refused to slow down at all during playback, because the sound was routed through bluetooth. Or all the times the application simply crashed when I tried to review my recording. Still, it's pretty cool and I'm going to be using this as much as I can. Which is probably quite a lot (you have been warned!).

The Speakers
The speakers are decent. Definitely a step up from the rear facing speaker of the Nexus 4. Putting a finger over each of the speakers it becomes apparent that one speaker is full spectrum while the other is only a tweeter, but for stereo effect this is enough. At one point I turned up the ringer to full throttle and while definitely loud the speaker also gave a decent amount of distortion. I'd rather have them play it safe so the speakers won't die an early death...

Conclusion
Several people have called this the best Nexus phone - some even the best phone in general. Disregarding the size I tend to agree, in spite of the too warm screen and the slightly buggy software, but coming from a 4.7" phone, 5.7" is huge! I was tempted by the Nexus 5X, but it is using an older SoC and plastic. The plastic I could live with (it might actually be better), but I wanted the latest and greatest in Nexus. Also, the 5X is only little more than 1cm shorter than the 6P making it a monstrosity as well. In the end I'm sure I'll get used to the enormity that luckily fits into my mansized pockets (women don't seem to stand a chance here), but a smaller phone would definitely have made this less of a reluctant purchase.

Tak for ordene. Det stemmer nogenlunde overens med min oplevelse her til aften i Elgiganten, hvor jeg forsøgte at bringe den i knæ et kvarters tid. Varm glød på skærmen, dog mindre end på Nexus 6, så vidt jeg kan se. Lidt lavere lysstyrke end på SG6 og iP6. To ting der burde have været i orden.
Ok men ikke overvældende lyd. Et kamera der er lynhurtigt klar. Slow mo fik jeg ikke testet. Lækker mobil, men til den pris ville jeg gerne have set at de sidste småting var i orden. Jeg køber den dog nok alligevel.
Det lykkedes mig aldrig at bringe den i knæ. Det gjorde det til gengæld på et øjeblik med iP6+. Nogle hurtige swipes til hver side, så reagerer den ikke længere. Når den virker, hakker den helt vildt. Det samme kunne jeg gøre for et års tid siden med en ældre model af iPhone og kan kun konstatere, at der er tale om et defekt operativ system. Til gengæld koster den 2000 mere end N6P.

My friend, who is still struggling with the technical details of photography, went here to upgrade her lens to one more sensitive to light. She told the clerk she needed this to photograph at events. However, they didn't have what she needed, but through a very convincing sales pitch she got the spectacularly bad advice to upgrade to a slightly better lens with a more limited zoom and the exact same f-stop. At great cost. This is one of the more expensive brick and mortar stores in Copenhagen, and if you can't go there when you are unsure of what you need you are better off shopping online or at least somewhere else. A single star added for reversing the deal when we came back 20 minutes later.

An adventure into the world of seafood. Try the seafood special! €27 is expensive for an appetizer, but it's worth every cent. Great atmosphere, competent waiters. If you're willing to spend a little extra, this won't disappoint!

Went there for lunch. The very nice waiter recommended the daily special, a New York strip steak sandwich, which I ordered. The sandwich smelled incredibly spoiled and I had to send it back. Ruined my appetite completely. They have a very impressive milkshake menu, including classics such as bacon pancake flavour or captain crunch. I chickened out with a caramel, which was ok, except for the ending which most of all resembled butter. I won't be coming back.

Fairly expensive, but they serve the best cocktails in town, and the service is always top of the line!
