Google Nexus 6P Vs Apple iPhone 6s Plus: Which Is Better?

The Google Nexus 6P is being compared to Apple’s iPhone 6s Plus since both flagship phones are being called “phablets” or phone tablets.

The Google Nexus 6P is being hailed as Google’s largest and newest smartphone. Of course, that hasn’t stopped gadget geeks and tech blogs from comparing it to the iPhone 6s Plus. Although the Nexus 6P was just announced a few days ago, it’s set to become the most popular flagship phone for both Google and Android lovers. It has some hefty competition with the release of Apple’s iPhone 6s Plus, a smartphone that Google has referenced to during its live press event on Tuesday, September 29.

The Nexus 6P is built similar in weight and design as the iPhone 6s Plus. This new phone has a metal frame with an aluminum unibody, which is similar to Apple’s aluminum and metal body. The Google Nexus is lighter than Apple’s smartphone since the increased weight is because of the new 3D Touch feature.

There’s no doubt that both phones have an impressively large screen. The Nexus 6P has a WQHD AMOLED display with 2560 x 1440 resolution, which means that it has more pixels than the 6s Plus’ Retina HD display at 1920 x 1080 pixel count. The Google Nexus phone also has more pixels per square inch with its density of 518 ppi, while Apple’s phone has 401 ppi.

The differences between the Google Nexus and the iPhone 6s Plus are more obvious when it comes to their internal parts. The Nexus 6P is equipped with a Snapdragon 810 processor with 3GB of RAM along with the new Android 6.0 Marshallow OS. As for the iPhone 6s Plus, it has an A9 processor and 2GB of RAM. Of course, it runs on Apple’s latest iOS 9. Both phones also come with three memory options: 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB for the Nexus 6P, and only 16GB, 64GB, and 128GB for the iPhone 6s Plus.

Both phones don’t come with a microSD card slot. That’s a common theme with both Apple and Nexus devices, so that shouldn’t come as a surprise to users.

When it comes to battery power, the Nexus 6P has an impressive 3,450mAh battery, while the iPhone 6s Plus only runs on a 2,750mAh battery. The increased battery along with a new feature like Doze, which allows you to put your phone into sleep mode when it’s not in use, will make the Google Nexus phone more desirable to users.

Apple finally increased the megapixel quality with its iPhone 6s Plus by having a 12MP rear camera and a 5MP FaceTime camera. Meanwhile, the Nexus 6P has a 12.3MP rear camera and an 8MP selfie camera. Both can also shoot 4K video.

Google retails the 6P at $499 for 32GB, $549 for 64GB, and $649 for 128GB. It’s still remarkably cheaper than Apple’s iPhone 6s Plus, priced at $749 for 16GB, $849 for 64GB, and $949 for 128GB. It’s hard to tell whether or not Apple or Google has the better smartphone, but it’s obvious which phone has the better qualities and specs.

There’s also your choice of colors: Space Grey, Silver, and Rose Gold for the iPhone 6s, and silver, black, and white for the Nexus 6P.

It’s safe to say that Apple lovers won’t want to part with their iPhones and purchase the latest Google Nexus. On the other hand, Android users are scared off by Apple’s luxury prices. Still, it’s interesting to see how the Google Nexus and Apple’s iPhones stack up. Both the iPhone 6s Plus and Nexus 6P are both tempting for any gadget lover to own. It should also be mentioned both aren’t easy to carry due to their large dimensions. If you hate how smartphones increased in size over the years, then neither of these phones are for you.
