The Nexus 6P has had a rough start due to it’s somewhat lackluster build quality that buckled on the bend tests against the improved iPhone 6s which fixed that problem that appeared on the iPhone 6. However that does not detract from the fact that the Nexus 6P is a serious powerhouse of specs and camera performance which brings true competition at 120fps and 240fps quality against the iPhone hegemony.
The compression has been improved and the scaling is actually pretty good generating fewer artifacts than ever before on an Android Phone slow motion mode. While there is a bit of Moire and aliasing in the images especially at 240fps, it is in line to what the iPhone 6s delivers. That is why we ranked them side by side on our best slow motion cameras of 2015.
It’s always good to take a look at the slow motion talent out there and what better way than a dozen amazing video samples of some of the best slow motion on the net. While many use professional cameras, some are using the RX series from Sony. There is no question that Slow Motion content and gear options are increasing and will continue to do so now that the feature is a flagship of phones, action cameras, consumer aimed mirror-less and more recently on the FS5 mid-range shooter.
