Google just unveiled the Nexus 6 on Wednesday and the pure Android device is very likely going to make a splash among Android fans. What about consumers who are still on the fence between the new flagship from Google and one of Apple’s latest flagships, however? We can shed some light on that situation.
We’ve taken the specs of the Google Nexus 6 and built a table comparing them directly to the iPhone 6. The hardware is certainly different under the hood, with Apple choosing its own proprietary processor, and the screen resolutions are definitely much different. Still, we think it’s compelling to see how two flagships compare and hopefully it’s useful for consumers who want to know how the device stack up on paper.
Check out our comparison tables below.
