7 Things I Like about Huawei’s Nexus 6P Android Smartphone

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Huawei. All opinions are 100% mine.

Before I dive deeper into my experiences with Huawei’s Nexus 6P device, you might wanna read what I’ve already written about the company. As much praise as Google’s biggest flagship smartphone is getting with techies, the company that created it deserves a bulk of the credit.

There are certainly an array of Android-driven experiences in the marketplace to accommodate a variety of users (which is the power of the platform), but this was my first experience with Huawei. I had been eyeballing it for quite some time, if only because I had been using an older product as my go-to Android gadget and had been wanting something with updated internals and a far more responsive screen.

The Nexus 6P did not disappoint.

  1. It shipped with the latest version of Android (currently 6.0, also known as Marshmallow). This is a welcome surprise. It will always be at the head of the pack for updates, too – given its status as a Nexus device. It’s as pure of an Android experience as you can get today.
  2. It looks good all around with clean edges constructed of metal and glass. Moreover, the front is all it needs to be with a screen and speakers – no design distractions (all logos are on the back of the device).
  3. The ability to record 4K video is currently a cutting-edge feature, fully available with the camera (and 1080p video in the front camera is also wonderful to have).
  4. The power button and volume rocker switch have different textures. This is a fine detail that really makes the device more usable (since you know which button you’re pressing without needing to look).
  5. The screen is bright and responsive. I felt that the animations and transitions were always smooth – always hitting around 60 frames per second without serious snags.
  6. The fingerprint sensor is blazing fast. I never had to rejigger my hold on the phone to get it to recognize my registered fingerprints, either.
  7. The software is running in parity with the hardware. I didn’t feel like I was dealing with an Android’ish experience – I felt like I was using a device that was designed with a singular vision.

These days, there are a smattering of smartphones from which to choose – but sacrificing quality for budget isn’t an absolute anymore. You can have premium products without necessarily paying a premium price, and that’s pretty much what Huawei has produced in the Nexus 6P. If you want to get one, you can go directly to Huawei and experience a level of customer service satisfaction that helps further set the company apart.

This Freebie is Worth Five Bucks

Hello, My Gnomies!

I usually earn gift cards left and right (and, sometimes, diagonal).

I was price checking an item at the store today and discovered that it was far more affordable to buy there than it was online. If you’re not double-checking everything you’re shopping for, you’re easily wasting the value of that smartphone you carry with you wherever you go.

While I was doing my research, I was prompted to let you know about an offer.

Use my referral link to get a $5 coupon at Amazon for signing into the Amazon App the first time: https://amazon.com/mpr?referralcode=CHRIS19404N&ref_=mpr_tr_ss – that’s what they told me to tell you.

So, if you’ve not yet logged into the Amazon app, that’s one nice incentive that could be applied to whatever it is that you want to get next.

The 24/7 Live Chat Room is Back

Hello, My Gnomies!

As many of you know, I started up my account on Twitch last week in an effort to better engage our community on another front. With it has come a side benefit of becoming a partner and being able to offer subscriptions and bonuses to anybody who cares to take advantage of the ongoing offer.

You see, my Twitch profile has a web-based chat room that is also fully accessible by way of IRC – and THAT means some form of live text chat with me is back (if you remember the way it used to be long ago). That’s a 24/7 live text chat, even if I’m not there 24/7. My old chat room regulars are still quite amazing people, and I wish that my personal life didn’t interfere with my ability to keep going with it years ago; I couldn’t support it half as well as it always supported me.

While Twitch chat is currently for any Twitch “follower,” I will likely lock it down to just my Twitch “subscribers” at some point. Anybody can “follow” on Twitch for free, but to get “sub” bonuses on Twitch, you have to “subscribe” at $4.99 a month. It’s their wording, not mine. You probably already sub to someone on Twitch, anyway.

All I want to do is interact with y’all, and it seems that chat on Twitch is going to be the best way to do it 24/7 – but that means you’d have to sub to me on Twitch for *THAT* feature if it’s something you want. Again, absolutely nothing changes with how we’re doing TLDR at this stage – for Super Gnomies or anybody.

Twitch is pretty much all about gaming, but if you don’t care about watching video game streams or other streams from me there, my 24/7 chat may be enough of a value to join in. Once it’s locked down to just my Twitch “subscribers,” it should be relatively free of trolls just like our Patreon arena is with TLDR.

Being active on Twitch does not keep me from doing TLDR for you as I’ve been doing (and offering this same range of bonuses that I’ve been offering you all this time). I’m just doing more and able to offer more bonuses to people on another platform.

I’ve always been limited by what these platforms can offer, and text chat has been missing for so long that I’m happy to see a viable option back on the table (albeit, not on a single platform as desired).

If you want, I’m in text chat now / constantly: http://twitch.tv/ChrisPirillo (and often multitasking). If you have any questions that I haven’t already responded to, please ask. I hope I was clear.
