In mid-October, Google presented its new flagship smartphone Nexus 6. The device runs on the latest operating system, Android 5.0 Lollipop and equipped with a large 6-inch screen. The creators of YouTube-channel Macmixing decided to compare the new with the “planshetofonom» Apple, to determine which unit was more successful.


The first thing you pay attention to users, comparing the two smartphones, it’s hardware. However, formal indicators difficult to pick a winner. Nexus 6 has the advantage of a 5.96-inch large screen with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels (445 ppi). Smartphone is equipped with 3 GB of RAM and a 4-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor clocked at 805 2.7GHz and Adreno 420 graphics.

The iPhone 6 Plus 5.5-inch screen with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels (401 ppi), 1 GB of RAM, but powerful 64-bit processor Apple A8, made using 20nm process technology and chip outperforms competitor.

This year, Apple launched a new platform iOS 8 with advanced features and tight integration with Mac, and repeat last year’s Google move Apple, completely transforming the design of its software platform. We have found that the performance ahead of iPhone 6 Plus. But what about the functionality of the software?

If you compare iOS and 8 Lollipop, is the main conclusion is this: the whole operating system interface is very similar, but the first is much more intuitive. Android 5.0 is chaotic, but still offers more features than epplovskaya “axis”.

Both operating systems make a serious impression. Both have their aces up their sleeves. Both vendors have tried to improve the user interface, but usually chosen for this different way. iOS 8 – easier, more accurate and intuitive, but provides fewer features and less opportunity to set up the system “by itself” than Android.


In Nexus 6 is a sensor Sony IMX 214 1 / 3.06-inch sensor Exmor RS and aperture value f / 2.0. Like the iPhone 6 Plus «google phone” has the function of optical stabilization.

Experts believe that the fingerprint iPhone 6, allowing to pay for purchases in stores, App Store and unlock the smartphone without entering a PIN-code has changed the rules of the game in the industry. Unlike similar designs from other manufacturers, sensor reads the fingerprint quickly and clearly. With the introduction of fingerprint module in the iPhone, many people who have not previously used passwords and PINs for fear of them forget, now began to apply security. Nexus 6 is deprived of this module.


iPhone 6 Plus is one of the best smartphones on the market. Thanks to the slim and stylish aluminum housing, high-quality camera device is an excellent choice for fans of “planshetofonov.” On the other hand, the new generation of Nexus 6 also has a premium design, and the new operating system Android 5.0 adds the machine extra points.
