One looks original, other one is just a blown-up iPhone. *runs away with jumbo-sized sweet popcorn*

Geez guys, learn to take a joke, or whatever. :D I wasn't serious, and I am not that dumb. Who cares anyways, that could've been just my opinion, don't get so much butthurt about it. It is just an opinion, im not hurting or emotionally traumatizing anyone. I GUESS. But you do all need to defend your OEM's phone......for reasons. :V

The edge plus looks so much nicer than the nexus 6.

The Nexus was an awesome phone last year... Compared to the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+, anything "sux". SMH

Agreed.. I had the whitewhite nexus 6 and loved it but it looks not so good compared to the edge plus

I agree, excluding the interface. I would love a Samsung Galaxy Edge Plus Nexus. It'll never happen, but it would be nice.

from the box to the gs6 everything is some sort of a mimic of an iphone. look at the bottom of an gs6 from the soeaker cut outsto the antennae bands to the glass back of an earlier iphone 4. no other galaxy has that design of ports at the bottoms. to be even more like an iphone. no sd. no removable battery. etc. etc. yawn. lets see how many samsung products gets released today

Similar yes but a copy no.. That's like saying iphone copied HTC for design and copied Samsung with their big phone. If design cues is all you have then you are reaching. Rumors that iphone will be testing amoled panels so that too must be a copy of samsung

Another pro to the nexus 6 is it can keep other apps open.

I'll take the Samsung, sell it, buy the Nexus, and keep the difference. I used S6 and Note 5 at BB, and I was immediately met with lag and jerkiness. SO much for UFS and the lack of lag inducing sd cards The Nexus, on the other hand, is a pleasure to use.

I had lag on my s6 bug in was a lemon.. My s6 edge plus has been the fastest phone I've ever used and much faster than even my white nexus 6

Maybe it is but will that hold up? Based on previous history, no. And we're not talking about benchmarks here, but rather system performance and general stability. In a couple of months when Android M comes out how fast will your Galaxy be updated? You'll have to wait a few weeks or months. It might never get updated because Samsung wants to sell you new devices.

If I went Android, I would only want a pure experience, so the Nexus wins with me regardless. Temp me with a Google Play Edition, Sammy. I would listen.
