Google Owes Nexus 6P Users No Features

By  | 

Although it does suck that the Nexus 6P doesn’t have official Daydream VR support, users don’t really have any right to complain. In terms of hardware, the device is simply unable to handle VR usage and would overheat, so there’s nothing that Google could do.

Even if it could, Nexus 6P users weren’t promised future VR support when they forked out cash for the device, so they would just have to temper their expectations.

It would be tempting for many to accuse Google of abandoning its Nexus lineup, now that the newer Pixel flagships have come to the fore, but that’s not really the case.

For instance, those holding the Nexus 6P could enjoy improved camera features from Pixel by putting in some effort and installing the Camera NX mod that also helps with the device’s camera software lag issues.

Android 7.0 Nougat is also arriving for the 6P, and it isn’t going to take long – by the second week of this month most users of the former flagship would already have left Marshmallow behind.

And coming back to the issue of Daydream VR compatibility, so far the phones officially supported by the platform are the Moto Z and ZTE Axon 7, which are much newer than the Nexus 6P. If, say, the Nexus 6 were to supported but not the 6P, then it would make more sense to cry foul.
