The Nexus 6 has finally arrived, so get ready to be blown away. Even if you’re a big screen junkie or not, the latter device will definitely be one of Android’s stellar flagships. The LG G3 has been its main adversary given all its amazing specs. But, have a look for yourself at the following phone comparison and decide on the supreme champ.
Build Value & Design – No one can deny the fact that the LG G3 device is the “prettiest” Android handset of the year. It is a heavy light device with some clear and sharper lines as well as tiny bezels. The rear end of the latter can be detached, so users can remove the microSD card and the battery. These are features that you won’t be seeing in the Nexus 6 gizmo.
If you love the Moto X (2014) phone, you will love the Nexus 6 one, because it’s like a bigger version of the Moto X one. The Nexus 6 tips the scale at 184 gr. while the LG G3 is merely 149 gr. When you turn it over, the Nexus 6 isn’t that impressive, not like the LG G3 one at least. The former device sports pretty big camera lens which might not seem appealing to you. The metal-trim surrounding the Nexus 6 can also be pretty perilous in one’s hand. Dual-front stereo speakers will also be integrated in the Nexus 6 while the LG device has only one.
Display – The LG G3 has a 5.5-inch QHD display, which may not be one of the best one’s out there, but it does the job. The color hues might be slightly moderate. As for the Nexus 6, the gizmo will sport an AMOLED display, similar to the one in Moto X (2014). So you will be pleased to see amazing contrast and great shades.
Software – The Nexus 6 will operate on Android 5.0 Lollipop, so be sure to expect a heighten Android experience. Because the Nexus 6 will be pumped up with more RAM and an extensive and quicker clock velocity, it will be a pretty fast gizmo (even faster than the all mighty Nexus 5).
As for the G3, LG made the UI pretty tidy and slick. There might be some occasional delays and of course it cannot beat the stock Android. The G3 gizmo also has features that the Nexus 6 doesn’t have. These are: Knock Code, multi-screen and QMemo+, floating mini apps and way more. But Nexus 6 may also get the voice controls implemented in the Google Now voice and the guest mode. You will also get to enjoy the

Performance – A quad-core Snapdragon 805 (running at 2.7 GHz and 3 GB of RAM) will be included in the Nexus 6 device. As for the G3 gizmo, you have the quad-core Snapdragon 801 (2.5 GHz and 3 GB of RAM) whereas the 16 GB version of the latter device has merely 2 GB of RAM, hence the sluggish performance.
Camera Specs – The 13 MP Moto X camera hasn’t really bedazzled users, But one thing is for sure, the Moto G (2014) camera is a lot better than the Moto X (2014) one. So we can only hope that Motorola as well as Google are considering these complaints and that they are doing their best to improve the camera specs. Google made some enhancements to the Nexus 5 camera, by rolling out a few software upgrades. The 13 MP camera unit integrated in the Nexus 6 comes with the optical image stabilization features, so that is a bonus right?
The 13 MP camera included in the G3 device is a stellar camera unit. It has auto-focus and the lighting is pretty good too, but several upgrades won’t hurt, that’s for sure.
Battery Life – Nexus 6 has a 3,220 mAh battery, but we are not expecting miracles over night with this type of battery.
A 3,000 mAh battery is what the G3 device has. Because LG mended the QHD display, it succeeded in optimizing the battery life.
Launch Date and Price Tag – You can get your hands on the 16 GB LG G3 (2 GB of RAM) on Amazon. The device is priced at $460 while the 32 GB one (3 GB of RAM) can be yours for $525 also on Amazon.
The Nexus 6 can be bought for a starting price of $649 for the 32 GB variant and users can place a pre-order in October. The stores will receive the latter device only in the month of November.
