Most new device launches go the same way: usually the press gets review units before they’re widely available, and we get to use them for a few days -or a week if we’re lucky- as we work on our review. Then press day arrives. The embargo on media coverage lifts, and everyone posts their reviews and videos at the same time. It’s a huge frenzy, commenters go nuts, and it’s a giant explosion of frantic opinion-sharing activity. For about … a day. And then it all goes away. Sure, there’s followup coverage as people find bugs and hidden features, but after that initial blast, not many people revisit the device to see how it feels a few months later, because everyone’s already focused on the next big deal coming down the pipe.
So let’s do something about that. Let’s see how we feel about devices when they’re not shiny and new anymore. This is After The Buzz.
The Nexus 6P has marked my return to a pure Android Phone ever since my beloved Galaxy Nexus. Google got kind of lost in its plan to defy technology through a pure Google plan by going either too cheap and dated, or too expensive and large. 2015 was the year of choice for the Nexus, and before our crazy review season this year, the Nexus 6P was my phone of choice. Watch our latest episode of After The Buzz as we discuss how things have evolved.
