We interrupt the Apple coverage for a look at a high end Android

The Nexus 6P is new from Google and is designed to compete directly against the new Apple devices, with an all aluminium body and a new USB Type-C connection for charging.  One of the benefits of the new USB is in the charging speed, which Google claims will give you 7 hours of usage off of a 10 minute charge.  They have also added a 12.3MP camera complete with a 1.55μm sensor, though in the style of the Nokia Lumia 1520, that camera does project beyond the casing.  The 5.7in 2560x1440 AMOLED screen is made of Gorilla Glass 4 and is powered by a 2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 v2.1 octa-core processor, which may display that chips tendency to get a little warm during use.  The Inquirer has not had a chance to fully review the Nexus 6P but you can catch their preview right here.

"THE NEXUS 6P is the first truly premium Android device from Google. Last year's Nexus 6 divided opinion with its bulky design and lacklustre features, but the firm is hoping that its successor, with the premium case and next-gen specs, will finally fill the void for those after a stock Android device."

The Snapdragon 810 has a bit of a reputation

the version of the 810 found in the 6P is v2.1, which actually under clocks it from 2ghz to 1.8, and has slight revisions in its microarchitecture so that it does NOT run hot.

This is about as lazy as reporting gets. Why even try? Now back to talking about the iPhone.

Who actually makes these and where are they made?

Im guessing China? I like the fact that my S6 Active is made in Korea.
