In its detailed teardown, iFixit noted, It’s very difficult although not impossible to open the device without damaging the glass camera cover. Because of the unibody design, this makes every component extremely difficult to replace. For replacing the display assembly, one needed to tunnel through the entire phone, making it difficult to perform one of the most common repairs (cracked display).
The Huawei Nexus 6P is the latest smartphone under Google s Nexus program. In our brief hands on, the smartphone had impressed us with its metallic body, which yielded a premium feel and seemed compact, light and sturdy.
Launched earlier this month, the Nexus 6P pricing starts at Rs 39,999. In terms of specifications, the smartphone features a 5.7-inch WQHD display with Gorilla Glass 4 protection. It runs Android Marshmallow out of the box and is powered by a Snapdragon 810 64-bit processor coupled with Adreno 430 GPU and 3GB of RAM.
Other important features of the smartphone include 12.3-megapixel rear camera, LTE support, USB type-C port and 3450 mAh battery. The smartphone is available in 32GB and 64GB storage variants.
