Google Nexus 6 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 4 vs Apple iPhone 6 Plus: specs comparison showdown

38comments

The wait is over! The new member of the Nexus line of devices has broken cover at long last – the Google Nexus 6 is here, hot out of the oven, and it is really a beast and each and every aspect. It has not only greatly grown in size with comparison with last year's Nexus 5, it is also packing mind-boggling hardware specs that can easily dwarf almost each and every representative of the current flagship crop you might through at it (except for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, that is).

The latter is poised to land on most of the major markets across the globe in two days' time and is already running circles around the Quad HD competition in terms of battery endurance, camera performance, and sheer hardware prowess. Meanwhile at Cupertino, we have the supersized Apple iPhone 6, which is the largest and most advanced iPhone the world has ever seen. Along with its smaller counterpart, the behemothy iPhone is already breaking records on the market.

Being among the hottest devices on the market at the moment, we couldn't help but put the trio in the ring and sound the gong. Yes, it's time specs comparison time!
