2

If you’re looking for a new phone, or phablet, then you’re in the right place. We’ll tell you about two of the new smartphones that have been released recently, and which have become very popular for their features. The Nexus 6P is one of Google’s devices which came installed with the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow, while the LG V10 is the variant of the G4, but with some additions.

Designs and Displays

The Nexus 6P was created by Huawei and it’s inspired from the Ascend P8, featuring a metal construction with a black band on its back, at the top. It’s a bit protruding and curved on the sides, and on the left side it has the camera and the flash. It comes in three variants of colors: Aluminum, Graphite and Frost, its dimensions are 159.3×77.8×7.3mm, but its weight is average, almost 180 grams. The screen measures 5.7-inch and it uses AMOLED technology, being able to support a QHD resolution of 1440x2560pixels at 518ppi.

The LG V10 is shock resistant because it has a textured silicone back with a stainless steel frame and it’s available in five variants of colors: Space Black, Luxe White, Modern Beige, Ocean Blue and Opal Blue. It has a floating arc form, meaning that the top and bottom sides are curved, and it has the physical buttons located under the rear camera, just like the LG G4. This device is a bit heavier at 192grams, its dimensions are 159.6×79.3×8.6mm and its display is using the IPS LCD technology, but it has the same size and resolution, but the pixel density is a bit lower at 515ppi. Above the top area of the main screen is a second display sized at 2.1inch, which can be set to be on and to offer information related to the time and date or weather, when the main screen is off, or when the main screen is on, it shows the shortcuts for your most used applications. Also, the resolution of the secondary display is 160x1040pixels.

Hardware

Likewise the LG G4, the V10 uses a Qualcomm MSM8992 Snapdragon 808 hexa core processor, which doesn’t have over heating issues, and its performance is boosted by the 4GB of RAM, while the internal memory which has a capacity of 64GB, can be doubled with a microSD card. The Nexus 6P, on the other hand, received the second edition of the Qualcomm MSM8994 Snapdragon 810 chipset, after its creators managed to get rid of the overheating issues, but the processor is backed by 3GB of RAM and the internal storage doesn’t support expansion and it’s available in variants of 32/64/128 GB.

Cameras and Batteries

The Nexus 6P uses a 12.3MP Sony sensor which obtained good results with DxOMark. To mention a few features, we’ll tell you that it supports laser autofocus, dual-LED (dual tone) flash and 1.55µm pixel size, while it’s capable of recording 2160p videos at 30fps. The 8MP secondary camera performs very well, but we recommend you to take selfies outdoors, in good light. The V10 has two front cameras of 5MP, which capture wide angle group photos, the main camera is 16MP and supports laser autofocus, optical image stabilization, LED flash, and 1/2.6′ sensor size.

The Nexus 6P is powered by a battery of 3450mAh which comes with a rapid charge feature and it’s charged via the new Type-C reversible plug. As for the LG V10, it comes with a 3000mAh removable battery, which supports Quick Charge 2.0.
