Nexus 6 snapped next to the Apple iPhone 6 Plus
Earlier today, we showed you an alleged render of the Nexus 6 that was disseminated by retired serial leaker evleaks. We pointed out that the phone strongly resembled the Motorola Moto X. Now, we have another photo supposedly showing the Nexus 6 standing next to another big name in the smartphone industry, the Apple iPhone 6 Plus.
 
Even with both phones standing on their respective heads, we can see the larger sized-screen on the Nexus 6 (5.9-inch vs. 5.5-inch on the Apple iPhone 6 Plus) and the wider and longer footprint on the stock Android device. The Nexus 6 has some mighty mouth-watering specs, if the most recent rumors are true. For starters, we're talking about a 5.9-inch screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560. That works out to a scrumptious pixel density of 496.ppi. As a comparison, the 5.5-inch screen on the iPhone phablet offers resolution of 1080 x 1920, and a pixel density of 401ppi.

The rest of the Nexus 6 also sounds awe inspiring with a quad-core 2.7GHz Snapdragon 805 CPU under the hood, and the Adreno 420 GPU crunching the graphics. 3GB of RAM is on board. The rear-facing camera is 13MP, records in 4K, and is equipped with OIS. The front-facing snapper comes in at 2MP. A 3200mAh battery keeps the lights on all day, and Android L is pre-installed.

There is speculation that we could see this unveiled as soon as tomorrow (Wednesday), along with the HTC produced Nexus 9 slate. With these specs, stock Android, quick updates, and Nexus-style pricing, there could be a new sheriff in town very soon.

So much less bezel on the Nexus 6 than the iPhone 6 Plus. It packs a much bigger display than the iP6+ into just a slightly larger body...

Both are equally beautiful.

That's subjective, but I guess they both have their pros and cons...

Don't forget the thickness that will affect the use of the phone with one hand. Moreover, Nexus phones are heavy.

Well, those people who hate thick bezels and rage on everything with thick bezels and buy IPhone, they are naif.

I don't mind phones being a bit thicker and heavier. I held the iphone 6 and it's very goodlooking, but it's too thin and light for me.

I disagree. iPhone is smaller, more stylish,and has better specs. check it out versus.com/en/google-nexus-6-vs-apple-iphone-6

First, this comparison is about the iphone6 plus, not the iphone6. Second, I read your link about the specs and in a technical point of view, the advantages that the Nexus has weighs more value than those of the iPhone6. (ie, clock speed, resolution, front and back cam megapix count, OIS, wireless charging, etc)

Both phones are two-handed affairs. They're way too big.

TK is a total fraud this is a moto x and iphone 6 with a 6+ screenshot. Read this ht tps://medium.com/@derekmross/this-is-the-real-tk-t​ech-news-a-fraud-d9f4a9e51ecf I can't believe phoneArena is still reporting stuff he says.

Agreed. Apple's obsession with thinness makes their phones harder to hold, not easier. The smaller battery is also a minus because of the thinness.

How do you figure the IPhone 6 has better specs? Not true at all...

Way to big for what? You, maybe. If it's coming to verizon hands down the nexus 6 is my new phone. And if you want smaller then you have the moto X 2014 or standard iPhone 6 to choose from.

iPhone 6's is the least stylish phone apple has ever created. The curved edges, ugly, the thinness, who cares, the top and bottom bezels, laughable, the protruding camera, horrible and the accent lines, uglier than the htc one it ripped iff

Yes, but the Nexus 6 has a rounded back that helps the phone fit in your hand. The iPhone 6+ is just thin and flat, no gripability...

I feel a sudden urge to flip my table right now. Looks like a great phone. Oh well might as well be happy with what I bought haha

As you should be because if you try keeping up with the latest phones, your bank account will definitely take a hit. Trust me on this one.

Actually can't agree more.

Kinda wish I waited until the actual announcement and didn't base my judgement on those poor leaked renderings/pics though. Seriously thought it was going to be much larger than the iPhone 6+.

BTW rocking a Z3 and happy with it.

I've been through the S3, Note 3, S5, M8, and 6 Plus. All in one year.

I can afford it since I don't party every weekend, but yeah. Glad to hear you're liking your phone. What are your pros and cons?

My impressions so far:

- Bright and sharp IPS screen with great viewing angles. There is a notable bluish tint but I am not too bothered by it.

- Dual speakers are loud, but are only audible enough 3-4 notches from max volume. Might be an Android thing? When it gets decently loud however, I can hear distortions every now and then when there are too many channels. As expected for a smartphone, they are tinny sounding. Almost the same as 5S in clarity here.

- Build quality is great. Personally love the simplistic+stylish looks. Unlike other smartphones with Gorilla Glass 3 however, the screen feels somewhat flimsy. Maybe it's part of the design... have no clue.

- Camera is decent. I've never been all that impressed with camera performance on phones with Android, but this one is at least acceptable for me. Minimal noise and low-light pics come out looking brighter than it really is (which can be a pro or con). Images don't come out as sharp (marginal difference) and vibrant as say the 5S with the Superior Auto mode, and getting things to focus properly is a challenge. Anyway, it's not that bad. Definitely not a deal breaker like it was with the Xperia Z1.

- Call quality is the highlight of this phone for me. I've been rocking a 5S for so long I've forgotten how speakerphones should sound like. It's simply jaw dropping. Feels like I am actually speaking with the person. No muffled sound.

If I was to give this a score out of 10, it'll be a 7.5. Not that perfect - but at least impressive enough to keep for a year until the next best thing arrives.

Hope this helps.

Amen to that. I've had to slow down this year because it has gotten ridiculous.

Thank you!

Battery life seems to be superb as Phonearena reported. It's currently at 59% battery after two days of light usage (approx 5 hrs messaging, 30min of voice calls, but no gaming).

Ditto, that's why I skipped the N4, no more two flagships per year.
