Whenever a new smartphone enters the market, it has to pass the “Can you beat the iPhone?” test. There is no escaping it. Now, as Google‘s latest smartphone “Nexus 6P” is here, it, too, will be compared to the iPhone. So let us have a look at some of the key features and specifications of both devices – Nexus 6P and iPhone 6S Plus – so you can decide which smartphone is the best.


As the display size of the smartphones gets bigger and bigger, it has become essential to check whether the phone fits in your hand. Google’s Nexus 6P is a clear winner here as it weighs just 6.27 ounces. iPhone 6S Plus weighs a bit more due to its latest feature – 3D Touch. But for a feature as cool as 3D Touch, we can ignore that extra weight.

Speaking of the performance, none of the smartphones lags behind. Where Nexus 6P runs on one of the best chipsets made for Android phones, Snapdragon 810 processor; iPhone 6S Plus runs on A9 processor, which has helped it become one of the fastest working phones. Both high-end smartphones score 10/10 here.

Camera is another important feature people consider when investing into a phone. Nexus 6P wins.

Nexus 6P as well as iPhone 6S Plus are capable of recording 4K videos.

When it comes to battery, Nexus 6P is a better choice as it comes packed with 3,450mAh battery, which makes it a long-lasting Nexus phone. iPhone 6S Plus has an average battery – 2,750mAh. Nexus 6P is a little ahead of iPhone 6S Plus here as well.

The Huawei-made Nexus comes with a fingerprint sensor. This sensor can be used for Android Pay, just like Touch ID is used for Apple Pay. Right now, Nexus 6P is ahead of the race, but will it be able to convince iPhone fans to switch to Android? It’s something we doubt.
