Compare iPhone 6S Vs Google Nexus 6P Vs Google Nexus 5X: Hands On


Both LG and Huawei used the best hardware and software options they had to build these Nexus devices. Huewai Nexus 6P has an AMOLED display with a resolution of 518 ppi whereas Google Nexus 5X is equipped with IPS LCD type display which is not better at resolution but good enough at 424 ppi. Previously launched Motorola Nexus 6 was also having an AMOLED screen with 493ppi pixel density. Similarly iPhone S6 offers a decent but huge pixel density of 401 ppi.


One of the main advantage or merit of Nexus device is it light weight. Nexus 6P weighs 178grams and Nexus 5X weighs 136 grams only. Both Nexus have display smaller as compare to Nexus 6 (5.96 inch). Nexus 5X is installed with a screen size of 5.2 inches. Even if the new Nexus 6P is smaller in size as compare to already available Nexus Motorola 6, but with metal body 6P stands out of all odds. While Nexus 5X by LG is still built into a plastic frame.

Nexus has also provided a new identity option via fingerprint sensor at the back of the smartphone body. Google has called this fingerprint scanner, Imprint.

Processor and Memory

The Google Nexus 6P is powered by powerful Qualcomm MSM8994 Snapdragon 810 and works on Octa-core CPU which is packed with Adreno 430 GPU. This dedicated GPU enhances the gaming experience which can also be streamed to television. Huewai NexusP6 is available in three memory options 32 GB, 64 GB, and 128 GB depending upon user requirements as there is no SD card slot (the only disadvantage or demerit). All models of Nexus 6P has 3GB LPDDR4 RAM to fulfill great processing needs.

Also Nexus 5X gets its power from Qualcomm MSM8992 Snapdragon 808 chipset with Hexa-core processor which is also packed with Adreno 418 GPU. Nexus5X is available in two memory options 32 GB and 64 GB again due to absence of any memory slot (disadvantage or demerit). Both variations has 2GB LPDDR4 RAM for better processing which is still less than as compare to Nexus 6P. Whereas iPhone 6S is installed with an Apple A9 chipset and Dual-core CPU with every performance enhancement upgrade. The iPhone 6s includes a RAM of 2GB, which is sufficient to handle all processing tasks.

As per Google’s commitment the battery of Nexus devices will not make you look for charger till night, once fully charged.


Well for considerable changes, the Google has moved on to Type-C Connector for better connectivity.

Type-C USB has the benefits of ease to use and improved protocols for high-speed data transmission like videos and images.

Also Nexus 6P, iPhone 6S, and Nexus 5X also offers general connectivity options like WiFi 802.11, WiFi Hotspot, WCDMA, HSPA, LTA, DLNA, NFC, and WiFi Direct.

To sum-up we will say that Nexus Devices are best ever you can get or expect from this decade’s Android devices. If you are Android lover and want to get hold of best device then Nexus has got two most likely options for you. As Google has offered two totally different feature packages at totally different price band just to target everyone’s needs. You can choose from 16GB memory option to 128GB depending upon your requirements.

Also Type-C connector in both Nexus Devices is the biggest need of coming technological developments and large data transfer needs. Again if we consider camera then Nexus 6P’s 12.3MP camera has broken all benchmark records and said to be the best camera tested till now. So if you prefer Android device then Nexus Device do stand out from any other Android device including Samsung Galaxy S6.

But if you love Apple device then iPhone 6S is one great option and preference is still based on platform and price you can afford.
