5

The Nexus 6 device is part of Google’s Android squad. But in this article we will be taking a closer look at the Nexus 6 and compare it with the iPhone 6. So, if you’re interested stay tuned.

  1. Power

Google has included a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor and 3GB of RAM into the Nexus 6 device. The battery is a 3,220-mAh one, so expect your gizmo to be up and running for 24 hours straight (this is just for conversation time) and for up to 300 hours of standby.

The iPhone 6 on the other hand is packed with an Apple A8 processor. The graphics are amazing due to this processor and it saves up to 50% more energy. As far as the battery for the later gizmo, it can resist up to 14 straight hours of conversation and it comes packed with the Voice Over LTE.

  1. Design & Screen

The overall aluminum assembly of the Nexus 6 device gives it a spick-and span look. You have the 32GB and the 64GB options and you can buy the white variant or the neat blue one. The curvy body is exactly the same as the Nexus 5. The screen measures 5.96-inch QHD AMOLED (1.440×2.560pixels). The exact measurements are (6.27x.3.27×0.40 inches and it is really light, weighing only 6.49 ounces.

The iPhone 6 device can be bought in a silver, gold or a space-grey hue. The screen measures 5.44×2.64×0.27 and it tips the scale at merely 4.55 ounces. In theory, Google’s device takes the lead (in terms of resolution). However, these display fine points have their pluses and minuses for sure. OLEDs screens are known for their high quality ratios whereas the LCD ones have a lot more hues and light.

  1. Camera Specs

Apple added for its iPhone 6 a 2.1 MP front facing camera and an 8MP one in the back. And wait, that’s not all. You also get to enjoy some neat features that permit you to edit your pictures and even your videos. And the best part is that they can be instantly uploaded to Instagram, Youtube and of course Facebook. Because the device has the image stabilization feature integrated, you can record videos while enaged in other activities. You also get the slo-mo feature and a burst mode that can take various photos/sec.

But Nexus 6 is not far behind and shows off some amazing camera specs as well. It comes equipped with a 2 MP front facing camera unit and a 13 MP attached at the back end of the device. As far as image stabilization is concerned, of course Nexus 6 also incorporated the image stabilization, plus a LED flash. And because of its amazing and enhanced features, those of you who love taking pictures can enjoy top-notch photo quality. Something else you will be stoked about is the fact that it permits you to record 4K video at 30 frames/sec.

  1. Costs

Users can get their hands on the Nexus 6 device in the month of November. Expect the 32GB variant to be priced at $650, whereas the 64GB can be bought for $700, contract-free.

A 16GB iPhone 6 is currently available at AT&T, T-Mobile and so on. By signing a 2 year contract you can have it for $200, the 64GB version can be yours for $300, while the 128 GB is available for the price of $400.

Final assessment:

Nexus 6 has a wider screen and the 4K feature of the camera is definitely a bonus. However, the iPhone 6 has a sleeker look and it’s great for editing both photos and videos. Both of these devices come packed with state-of-the-art enhancements and they are certainly worth looking into.
