Best phone 2016: the 10 best smartphones we've reviewed

Helping you choose the best mobile phone since 2008

8. Nexus 6P

Google goes again for a phablet, and it's a corker

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

The bigger of the two new Nexus phones is a phone that can entice you in many ways. Perhaps you'll like the vivid QHD display, which is more compact this year to offer a sharper resolution when watching movies or browsing the web.

Or the fact it'll get the latest version of Android first (currently the highly-rated Android Marshmallow) or the innovative placement of the fingerprint scanner on the back - which is both quick and accurate.

It's not super-cheap like the old Nexus phones (although it's more competitive than other phablets in the same screen size bracket), but it's very well made, and thanks to the improved camera and battery capabilities, there's not a lot to hate here - just make sure you fancy that extra screen size and you're away.

Also consider: If you're after a Nexus phone, you're thinking about getting the latest version of Android in a smartphone - and you can get that in the Nexus 5X too. It's cheaper, and not as powerful in some ways, but it's cheaper and more palm-friendly.
