Nexus 6P vs Galaxy Note 5 spec shootout!

by Sean P. Aune | September 29, 2015September 29, 2015 6:00 pm PDT

Some people just like big phones. It is a great time for phablet lovers, it seems like every platform and manufacturer offers a big display version phone in its lineup. Even the most basic phones now seem to offer screen sizes 5-inches or larger making phablets less absurd than they once seemed.

However, with so many phablet options available now, it just becomes that much more difficult to pick amongst a sea of worthy options.  So how does the Nexus 6P compare to one of the most popular options available, the Galaxy Note 5? We already gave the Note 5 high marks in our review earlier this year and while you’ll have to wait a tad longer for us to get our own Nexus 6P in the office for review, you can check out their specs.

For now, check out how the Nexus 6P compares versus the Galaxy Note 5 in this spec shootout.
