So the specs are being leaked all over the place if you haven't heard. The 2016 Nexus to come after the 6P is the Marlin, it will be made by HTC, will have a 5.5 inch quad HD display, no wireless charging, 4 GB of RAM, and possible the SnapDragon 821. Also is stated to have BOTTOM FIRING SPEAKER/S.

So will you upgrade or will you keep the 6P or will you go elsewhere for your 2016 phone?

I'm thinking I might stay on the 6P if the downgrade in screen size and the speakers is true.

Yea, I was thinking about the One Plus 3. MKBHD says he upgraded that to his daily driver so it must be pretty good. But I like having the newest software and I'm sure they won't get updates as fast as the Nexus and they won't get the Developers Previews and Betas. This is the first phone that I don't feel the need to root.

No reason for an upgrade, nexus 6p is an excellent machine.

For enthusiasts - which we most likely are. Pls view the You Tube Launch of Mi Max - they show an analysis of screen sizes - 5.5 is the "most sold" device, but in larger devices 6.4 is the most sought after. IMHO Google has gone down to 5.5 in which is the wrong direction.

Now I hope you are all young, vile, and healthy in eyesight - personally I can stand to see a bigger device better - Currently my 6P is maxed out on both the font size and the screen size running beta for Nougat (dear God not even the name flows. call it Android N Beta)

I don't mind the 5.7 vs 5.5 so much as I mind the bottom firing speakers, if true. I love the front facing stereo speakers on the 6P! That along would keep me from upgrading to the new Nexus if indeed true. The 6P is still a very capable device!

No and for no other reason than my phones have a 2-year life cycle. Excited for Nexus 2017.

I will probably but not immediately. Will wait on the price to drop on the larger nexus because the rumored specs don't blow me away. I hope the rumors are false about no front facing speakers. HTC has some of the best speakers in the game don't know why they would not want to include them.

No, not a chance, no front facing speakers or fingerprint reader on the back, I'm not buying.
