Samsung Galaxy S7 vs Nexus 6P spec shootout

by Brandon Russell | February 21, 2016February 21, 2016 11:45 am PDT

We thoroughly enjoyed the Nexus 6P, Google’s most advanced smartphone ever. It’s still a really terrific phone, and you can get it for cheap right from Google proper. But the Galaxy S7 (and other new Android powerhouses) are making a strong case for you to say your goodbyes to Google’s flagship. As hard as it is for me to admit, the Nexus 6P seems, well, so ordinary now. You can see how these two phones compare on paper in the table below.
