Google Nexus 6P vs iPhone 6S Plus – Two Tech Giants Go Head To Head


Two of the best smartphones 2015 had to offer are definitely Apple’s iPhone 6S and Google Nexus 6P. The devices even fall in the same category sporting the similar sized display and the same price, but as we will soon find out that even though the devices come in the same size, the technology is different. Today we will go over the hardware performances, display and price to see which one of them prevails.

Hardware Performances

Apple didn’t shy away from equipping its device with the company’s own high-end dual-core A9 processor which clocks at 1.84GHz and that’s paired with a PowerVR G7600 GPU and 2GB of RAM. On the other hand, Google’s Nexus 6P is powered by Qualcomm’s octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor which clock at 2.0GHz and that’s paired with an Adreno 430 GPU and 3GB of RAM. Now in terms of battery life expectancy, Apple’s smartphone lasts up to 85 hours while Google’s only lasts 74 hours.


iPhone 6S Plus ships with a 5.5 inch IPS LCD capacitive touch screen display which features 16M colors. The smartphone has a screen to body ratio of 67.7 percent and a pixel resolution of 1080 x 1920 that’s accompanied by a pixel density of 401. Now to Nexus 6P, the device comes with a slightly larger 5.7 inch AMOLED capacitive touch screen display which also features 16M colors. Nexus 6P has a screen to body ratio of 74.4 percent and a pixel resolution of 1440 x 2560 and a pixel density of 518. While Apple’s display is coated with Ion-strengthened glass, Google uses Corning Gorilla Glass 4 for protection. Both displays also come with oleophobic coating, the only difference being that iPhone 6S features 3D Touch functionality and display zoom.

Verdict and Price

Both devices are priced around $514 on Amazon but what the smartphones bring to the table is totally different. It’s safe to say that in terms of performance and display technology the Huawei manufactured Nexus 6P has a slight advantage, but the differences aren’t that big. In the end, it’s just a matter of preference between Android and iOS.
