The Apple iPhone 6s Plus and Google Nexus 6P became instant hits after they released last month. There isn’t much doubt both have great display features and cutting-edge software, but the 6S and 6P is a classic fight on many levels.

Let’s check-out how the Apple’s own phablet fares against the Android “enormo-phone”.  

Exterior shield

Apple’s oversized 6s has a strong aluminium body with rounded edges that distinguishes it from the rest of “slab o’ glass” smartphones. Despite its tough body and broad size, the phone is appealing but it seems that small-handed users will have to struggle with the size.

You’ll fall in love with the Nexus 6P’s svelte, aluminium shield that feels great to the touch. Sure, the phone isn’t as classy as the Galaxy 6S but its 7.3 mm thick body is good enough for a 5.7 inch display, as reported by Stuff TV.

Display

iPhone 6s Plus boasts of a 5.5 inch display packed with 1920 x 1080 pixels that enables users to delve further with its press-and-hold button on its 3D touch screen. Apple has been the best when it comes to displays enhanced with natural colours and so it stands way ahead of AMOLED displays such as those in the Nexus 6P.

Check out the Nexus 6Ps 5.7 inch display that features 2560 x 1440 pixels in a super AMOLED screen with stunning contrast. Although you might not experience superb usability like the iPhone 6s, the 6P’s display is highly impressive for day-to-day use.

Chips inside

Supported by 3 GB of DDR4 RAM with Snapdragon 810, the 6P offers great performance with its octa-core processor in its Marshmallow, says TechnoBuffalo. The 6s Plus is equally endearing with its powerful processor though some critics have rated it a little lower than other iPhones.

The Nexus 6P draws level with the iPhone 6s Plus on many counts but if price is a major factor, then the 6P wins the race.
