20 Must have free Android apps for Marshmallow:
Here I'm going to give you 20 Must have apps for every Smartphone running on Marshmallow. All you going to need are these top 6 Google apps, 10 other basic apps and 4 regional/interest based apps.

Best 6 Google apps: In Marshmallow, Google has made most of the day to day usage apps inbuilt, like the Top 6 apps listed below,
Google Keep


Google Fit - Fitness Tracking


Google Chrome


Google Gmail


Google Docs


Google Indic Keyboard (For India)

If not pre-installed, I would suggest to go for it now.

Top 10 other apps on Google Play: Apart from these basic apps, Google has stopped supporting some of there most useful apps like the Gallery, Video Player, etc., So here is the Top 10 free apps on Google Play, which are very must useful for every day usage.

10. Cameringo Lite. Effects Camera
Developer: Perraco Labs

If you think the inbuilt camera app is not giving enough options, then I would suggest you install the Cameringo Lite.

Pros and Cons of Huawei Google Nexus 6P

Pros and Cons of Huawei Google Nexus 6P (32GB/Silver)
Pros:

1. Camera performance is amazing but lacks manual control. Slow motion video @240fps in 720p is something interesting feature to look for. UHD video also gave good results.
Photos look more natural with HDR+ feature enabled.

2. OS: as always my love towards android is ever increasing. With Marshmallow it runs smoothly and performs amazingly with great features. App switching is now made more fun with nice and smooth animation. With Nexus brand you get to enjoy all the future Android updates and new releases along with regular security updates. What's more is its stock Android experience, so install only what you want and no unwanted apps forcefully fed into your smartphone.

3. Phone features: the best thing I liked about this device is surprisingly it's signal catching capability. A phone however smart it is should serve the most basic feature which is calling. Haven't experienced call drops at all, compared to my ear…

Huawei Google Nexus 6P Hands-on Full Review(Detailed) This is my first flagship smartphone, and the initial experience was amazing. First looks made to feel high end and metallic. Read the detailed review and ratings below:

Competitors: Main competitors in this price range (30,000-40,000) are Apple iPhone 6/SE, Samsung Galaxy S6, LG G4, Sony Xperia Z5/Z3, Moto X Force, Microsoft Lumia 950 XL and Nexus 5X.

Build Quality (9/10):
The outer body looks strong metallic and flagship. The build quality is upmarket and looks very rigid, with the gorilla glass 4.

Primary Camera (9/10): [12.3 MP, IR laser-assisted autofocus, f/2.0, Broad-spectrum CRI-90 dual flash, 1.55 μm pixels]
The main highlight of the smartphone is its Front Camera. Photos come with natural colors and pixels look clearer when compared to higher MP camera phones. It doesn't have a fancy number for counting Megapixels like other phones, the 12.3MP photos look better than 21MP photos on other smartphones and doesn’t look lik…

Drive to the highest peaks in Karnataka

Drive to the highest peaks in Karnataka: It was the end of the summer season in south India and pre-monsoons were already felt, we decided to take an extended weekend tour to Chikmagalur. Though there was no initial plan, we had few places in mind like the Mullayanagiri, Bababudangiri, Kemmanagundi and Hirekolale Lake, within 3 days of our leisure time. After checking with the hotel staff we dropped the plan of Kemmanagundi as it was relatively drier in summer, we decided to start with Mullayanagiri as our first attraction.

At 1930 m ASL Mullayanagiri is the highest peak between the Himalayas and the Nilgiris, and also highest peak of Karnataka state. Located on the Chandra Dhrona Hill Ranges of the Western Ghats. The drive to the peak from Chikamagalur may be a short one but it is one of the most dangerous roadways I've ever experienced. Take my words, it's the stretch between Seethalayanagiri temple and Mullayanagiri peak which is about 2km and goes with wild turns and blind ed…
