Google Nexus 6P vs Motorola Moto X Style vs Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+: specs comparison


In case you're an Android fan but have been living under a rock, Google just released two new Nexus phones, the Nexus 6P and the Nexus 5X. Made by Huawei and LG respectively, these will be the new conveyors of the pure Android experience. 

The Nexus 6P is undoubtedly the better-spec'd handset: with a Snapdragon 810, 3GB of RAM, a 5.7-inch Quad HD display, and a fingerprint scanner at the back, its specs sheet is definitely not too shabby.

However, there are two other relatively new and pretty compelling devices in the same display 5.7" size diapason - the Moto X Style, also known as the Pure Edition, and the Galaxy S6 edge+. How does the three stack up against each other in terms of specs and specs alone? We decided to put the three against one another in an improvised specs clashdown and determine which one is the best equipped and which one has brought a knife to a gunfight.
