TOP 1000 REVIEWERon 29 July 2016
I bought this from Flipkart for 24999 (32GB Carbon). But I thought I should post the review here because it might help others who wish to buy this beast.

Display: It is fantastic. 423ppi. Human eyes are saturated at 300ppi. But when it comes to games and videos you can feel the difference in higher ppi screens.

Performance: It is great too. SD808 is a beast. I'm running Android N preview. Even with a beta OS, I haven't noticed a single lag.

Camera: This is the best part. Nexus 6P and 5X came with the same sensor for the back camera. And DXOMark (well-known camera rating site) rated the camera above the iPhone 6s (which costs 60K). Camera is awesome even in low light. Front camera is excellent.

Battery: Lasts for a day. That is great nowadays.

Software: Nexus - Stock Android + First in line for updates - Bloatware. I am running Android 7.0 which will take a year from now to arrive for other smartphones. Plus we get monthly security patches.

In the box : Charging adapter, USB C-C cable, USB C to micro USB adapter, SIM ejection tool, LG headphones with mic.

Fingerprint scanner: This is very fast. Someone made a comparison video which I viewed in YouTube. It even beat the iPhone 6S by a few milliseconds. Imagine the speed.

Charging: Charges completely within an hour. 3A is blazing fast. Similar to Qualcomm quick charge.

Connectivity to Computer: This is the only con. With USB C to C cable, it's very difficult to connect to a PC. You could use the adapter but it is very easy to lose. You might have to buy a USB A to C cable. Be very careful while buying it. Many cables are not compliant with the USB C standard. Search for Benson Leung in Google. He is a Google engineer. He reviewed many cables and shortlisted which ones are safe.

Note: You could get 6GB RAM phones for almost the same price. Having a smartphone with 6GB RAM doesn't guarantee a better performance. It depends on a lot of factors like software optimisation etc.
