The Nexus 6 is one of the largest phones from the market, but this doesn’t necessarily mean that everyone is fascinated with enormous phablets. To some people, the Nexus 6 is too big and uncomfortable to hold, but if you’re interested to find out how it stacks against one of the newest releases, the LG G4, then below, you’ll have a comparison between their specs.
The Nexus 6 is tall and heavy, but it’s not ugly. It comes with a plastic back that is similar to the Moto X 2014, because Google chose Motorola to build this Nexus, and the manufacturer preferred to maintain the design. The phone has a metallic frame and a thickness of 10.1mm, it’s water resistant, but the protection is very weak.
The LG G4 is 7% shorter and 3% thinner compared to the Nexus 6, and its back is either made of plastic with 3D pattern or covered with genuine leather, which has a vertical stitching that runs down the middle. Also, the LG G4 is 16% lighter.
The screen from the Nexus 6 is AMOLED (from Samsung), it measures exactly 5.96 inches and it supports Quad HD resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels, resulting in a pixel density of 493 ppi. The LG G4 has a 5.5inches IPS LCD ultra-sharp screen with the same resolution, but which offers 9% higher pixel density.
Both phablets are housing 3GB of RAM and are powered by a Qualcomm processor, but the Nexus 6 is older, and it received a 32bit quad core Snapdragon 805 CPU clocked at 2.7GHz, which pairs with Adreno 420 graphics. The LG G4 was equipped with a hexa core MSM8992 Snapdragon 808 processor that consists of a quad core CPU clocked at 1.44GHz and a dual core CPU clocked at 1.82GHz. The graphics are inferior, though, as this hardware combination works only with an Adreno 418 GPU.
The Nexus 6 doesn’t have a microSD card slot, and there are two variants of internal storage: 32GB and 64GB. The LG G4 offers 32GB of storage and the possibility to expand its capacity up to 128GB.
The Nexus 6 has main camera of 13MP with OIS, dual-LED flash and an aperture of f/2.0, while the secondary camera is 2MP. The LG G4 performs better with the 16MP back camera with a wider aperture of f/1.8, OIS, laser autofocus and 1/2.6” sensor size.
The Nexus 6 has a bigger battery of 3220mAh, which outperforms the 3000mAh battery that powers the LG G4. Plus, the Nexus phablet supports Quick Charge 2.0 technology, allowing you to charge the battery from 0 to 50 percent in about 40 minutes.
The Nexus 6 has been receiving some significant price reductions in the past weeks, so now you can get the 32GB variant at a price of 488 dollars, while the 64GB variant costs 550 dollars. The LG G4 has a price of 485 dollars on the same website.
