Google Nexus 6 vs. iPhone 7 – Is Apple Worth It ?
Ever since Google decided to venture into the smartphone market their devices have been pinned against the likes of Apple’s iPhone and Samsung’s Galaxy S devices, and to our surprise Google’s phones prevailed in most of the comparisons. One of Google’s most renowned mobile devices is the Nexus 6 and the phone is in the same category Apple’s iPhone 7 is. Since the two devices go head to head on the market we decided to compare them in order to help readers choose the one that fits their needs the most.
Apple’s device ships with a 4.7 inch IPS LCD display that has a pixel resolution of 750×1334, while on the other hand the Nexus device features a larger 5.96 inch AMOLED display that has a higher pixel resolution of 1440×2560. We can clearly see that Google wins this round, but now let’s take a look under the hood and check out the hardware specs. The iPhone 7 is powered by a quad-core A10 Fusion processor that’s paired with 2GB of RAM and the Nexus 6 is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon and 3GB of RAM. The Nexus device wins this round as well.
Now on to the camera department, the Nexus 6 features a 13MP camera that’s equipped with LED Flash, OIS sensors and a smaller 2MP camera which should be just enough for the user to take selfies with. The iPhone 7 features a 12MP main camera that’s equipped with the same sensors and a 7MP secondary camera that helps the Apple device prevail in this category.
The biggest difference between these two devices is the operating system they use, both manufacturers having their own software. Google’s device runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop that will eventually be upgraded to the latest Nougat OS and the iPhone 7 uses Apple’s latest iOS 10 version which provides users with a new interface and higher quality graphics.
We’ve compared the most important aspects of these devices and it looks like the Nexus 6 wins overall. The only department in which the iPhone 7 won is in the camera one, so its up for customers to decide if they either want more stable performances or better camera specs.
