Nexus 5X vs Nexus 6 vs Xiaomi Redmi 3S – Three Powerful Android Smartphones

One of the best things about being an Android fan is that there’s a large variety of smartphones to choose from. Things get even better, Android smartphones don’t have an expiration date most of the time because Google keeps on providing them with software updates. However, even though Google might decide to stop supporting them, Android users can always manually flash custom ROMs on their smartphones.

Today we’re going to present three Android powered smartphones which can be acquired for rather cheap prices. Two of them are going to be Google’s own Nexus 6 and Nexus 5X while the third one is going to be Xiaomi Redmi 3S. Without any further ado, let’s get into it.


Nexus 5X has been fitted with a 5.2 inch display which offers a full HD pixel resolution of 1080 x 1920. Nexus 6 ships with an even large 5.2 inch panel that features a high pixel resolution of 1440 x 2560. Last but not least, Xiaomi Redmi 3S has been equipped with a 5.0 inch display which presents a HD pixel resolution of 720 x 1280.

Hardware Power

LG has been the manufacturer behind Nexus 5X and it has equipped the smartphone with Qualcomm’s hexa-core Snapdragon 808 CPU that’s been paired with an Adreno 418GPU and 2GB RAM. Nexus 6 is also using one of Qualcomm’s highly powerful quad-core Snapdragon 805 CPU that’s been coupled with an Adreno 420 GPU and 3GB of RAM. Finally, Redmi 3S is fueled by Qualcomm’s slower octa-core Snapdragon 430 that’s been fitted with an Adreno 505 GPU and 3GB of RAM.

Final Words

As we all can see, these three smartphones are quite powerful. Nexus 5X features the most powerful processor, but its RAM memory is quite small. Redmi 3S comes with the best GPU, but it’s processor lacks in power. This leaves Nexus 6 as being the overall best smartphone. Obviously, Nexus 6 is nowhere near flawless, but it performs exceptionally well in all hardware departments and not just one.
