Nexus 6P Slow Motion is a real iPhone Competitor!


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.

We found a few videos we would like to share showing what the Nexus 6P can do within the slow motion spec that might make your purchase easier when compared to other options. We have been contacted several times with the question of the iPhone vs the Nexus 6P in regards to slow motion and these videos might help. Build quality aside the phone’s camera might be the best Nexus camera ever made.

There you have it, there is a lot of material out there but these samples should give you a good feel of what the phone can do. It does record audio in the 120fps and 240fps modes which is a plus and it really adds another dimension to some clips.

Happy New Year -HSC!

    1. The built in Android app does not do it, it will be a matter of looking for a third party app that could force the sensor to do it. At a max of 240fps 1/8000 is a bit extreme. 1/2400 should suffice to freeze motion for this phone.
