I love the look of Google's gold Nexus 6P (pictures)

The golden Nexus 6P is just like the Nexus 6P, only gold.

Still comfy

Google took the original Nexus 6P and covered it in gold. Same specs. Same everything. Except, gold.

Side by side

Here's the original Nexus 6P and the new hotness, side by side.

Fast sensor

The Nexus 6P still has one of the fastest fingerprint sensors we've ever experienced.

Power, volume

Such an elegant metal design.

Camera

The camera still lacks some of the features we've become accostomed to on other phones.

There's nothing like a smooth metal backside.

Contrast

With the gold version, the constrast in the design is really pronounced.

Front camera

The 8-megapixel front-facing camera takes good photos, but appears to apply an automatic air-brushing effect to images.

Corners

Those smooth rounded corners.

Any way

Well, almost any way. Let's be sensible here.

That big golden shield is quite comforting.
