3. Nexus 6P

Google partners with Huawei for a special device

OS: Android 6 | Screen size: 5.7-inch | Resolution: 2560 x 1440 | Memory: 3GB | Storage: 32GB/64GB/128GB | Battery: 3,450mAh | Rear camera: 12.3MP | Front camera: 8MP

Google's Nexus platform has always been about partnering with different manufacturers to deliver the best possible handset for the time, and for the Nexus 6P, Huawei has stepped up to the plate.

With Android Marshmallow singing on the device's 5.7-inch screen, and the included rear-fingerprint scanner set to help Android deliver unified mobile payments a reality, this truly is the best Nexus handset ever made.

Incredible battery life and quick charging make up for the handset's lack of optical image stabilisation, but the fact remains that both front and rear cameras excel even without it.
