"According to the slides, the Huawei Nexus 6P will feature a 5.7-inch WQHD display, a slim, metal unibody, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, dual front-facing speakers and a USB Type-C port. All of these specifications have been rumored for some time, so these shouldn’t come as a surprise. What hasn’t been rumored is the device’s battery size, which, according to the slides, will come in at 3450mAh. The 6P’s screen will also be made of Gorilla Glass 4. The device will also weigh a total of 178 grams, which is relatively light considering the Nexus 6P’s all-metal build. For comparison, the Motorola Nexus 6 weighs 184 grams."
All in all, I've become more impressed with the new Chromebook Pixel the longer I've used it. The laptop is a strong performer -- easily twice as fast as most other Chromebooks -- and can last all day on a single charge. Even when there's some app or activity that's not ideally suited for or not supported on the Pixel, there are options to help me get work done.
The next time you read an iPhone review, keep all these biases in mind. The iPhone is the favored tech product of a vast swathe of our planet’s population, serving both utilitarian and aspirational purposes. It is the catalyst for and sole supporter of entire ancillary industries. It is the nexus where communication and commerce blend most easily, and it is the surest harbinger of the future that is to come. Any review that doesn’t account for all of these factors might be considered technically objective and ubiased, but it would also be frightfully uninformative. Assessing an iPhone against a blank canvas is akin to describing Notre Dame or Sagrada Família as old, large, religious buildings.
"One area where this device trumps all three varieties of Apple laptop is in the screen; the 3:2 aspect ratio is exceptional for viewing web pages and reading documents. Not only is it super-high resolution with class-leading PPI, it also has terrific contrast and deep, rich blacks. It is also a touch-screen that supports pinch-to-zoom. While Chrome continues to have minimal optimization for touch input, having this functionality is still very useful and helps show off that fantastic display. Anything negative I can say about this device from a build quality perspective would be nit picking, so I’m not going to just for the sake of doing it. It is great to look at, has a super-premium feel, and I am confident that regardless of what your prior laptop was, you’ll be very comfortable with all aspects of the build quality of this Chromebook." ...
"It isn’t just the boot times that make me say that; the web-browsing performance is exceptional. Even with twenty tabs open, new tabs continue to open instantly and pages render with blistering speed. Scrolling is buttery smooth even on websites loaded with images and videos, like CNN.com or The Verge.Running five Octane 2.0 benchmarks on the 2015 Pixel gave me an average of 24747 with a median score of 24894." ...
"Instead of competing with the MacBook Pro as the 2013 edition did, at this price point, it is now competing with the 13″ MacBook Air, which the Pixel outperforms in many categories. The Pixel offers significantly better screen quality, double the RAM, comparable battery life, a touchscreen, and where it can compete head-to-head such as Octane tests and web browsing applications, the Pixel has much more power on tap than the MacBook Air.
Of course, the Air does take the day when it comes to local applications and with regard to weight.
If we take this comparison to the new “MacBook” for 2015, this escalates the performance advantages of the Chromebook and highlights the additional ports of the Pixel compared to the limitations of the that device; here, even more so than with the Air, the weight difference is the major issue. With its low-power Core M processor, the MacBook will work best at the same things Chromebooks are good at: web browsing and media consumption. The Pixel is much heavier, but does these things far better, at a lower MSRP."...
"The reality here is that if you’re looking for a premium device and the majority of your time spent on that device will be in a web browser, the Pixel is a very compelling product. For those who have to do a lot of local application work while on the go and need their laptop to be their primary device, laptops like the Dell XPS 13, Surface Pro 3, and MacBook Pro probably still have the edge on the Pixel. But, if the Pixel is your second computer, it offers a faster device with significantly more accessibility options and better battery life compared to the comparable options from Apple and Dell. The base Pixel is cheaper than the comparable touchscreen Dell XPS 13 or Surface Pro, and has the typical Chrome OS pros/cons of being a more stable and hassle-free experience in exchange for one that is much more limited in scope."
