Google claims that its flagship smartphone Nexus 6 would be one of the best phones in the market.
It is not yet launched but we will compare Apple’s iPhone 6 with whatever we have been told about Nexus 6 for now.
There are three different models of Apple’s iPhone 6 available in the market. The 128GB model of iPhone is available in the market for £699. The 64 GB model is available for £619 and the 16GB version is available for £539.
The Nexus 6 has only two different models. The 32GB version is available for £499 and 64 GB model is available for £549. Both the smartphones do not have any card slots for increasing the storage capacity. You can use OTG USB drive with Nexus 6 to watch videos or listen to the music.
There are various opinions from tech minds around the globe; we thought this one might be worth sharing:
For all the iPhones 6’s plaudits, it’s not been without its issues and many commentators have found quite a few flaws in the software not to mention Bendgate.
Design and Build
Nexus 6 is no doubt just a larger version of Motorola Moto X in terms of looks. This phone has an aluminum frame with a camera at the rear of the phone. The camera is surrounded by LED flashes. There are stereo speakers present on the front side. It has a huge screen of 159 x 82x 10 mm and it weighs around 184 g. On the other hand iPhone has no comparison as far as looks are concerned. It is a lightweight phone with metallic body and sleek design. Its beautiful screen is 138 x67 x 6.9mm and the phone weighs around 129 g only. Nexus 6 is even bigger than the iPhone 6 plus and hence much heavier in weight too.
The Nexus 6 has quad- HD screen and a pixel density of 493 ppi. Apple’s iPhone 6 4.7 inches screen is smaller than Nexus 6 with pixel density of 400 ppi. The Nexus 6 would have beautiful colors as it uses AMOLED technology. Apple’s iPhone uses the original IPS LCD. We already know that iPhone 6 has the best screen amongst all the iPhone models.
Apple’s iPhone is definitely a winner as far as hardware is concerned. The Nexus 6 uses the quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor. The Apple’s iPhone uses A8 processor with the M8 co-processor. Both the smartphones have barometers, WIFI connectivity and NFC. They both use nano SIM and support 4G.
The Nexus 6 camera has a 13 Mp sensor and it can shoot 4K video at 30fps. The Apple’s iPhone has an 8 Mp camera and it can shoot 1080 p video at 30 or 60 fps. From the numbers it seems like Nexus 6 will capture more detailed pictures than the iPhone 6. Nothing can be said for sure until the Nexus 6 is tested for the picture results.
