Pitting the Nexus 6 against the iPhone 6+

Okay, let's call a spade a spade.  Everyone that looked over yesterday's blog post on the new Nexus line up thought "kinda reminds me of Apple".  I know a few posts over the past day have drawn that conclusion as well, so let's see how well they stack up against each other

Based on specs alone (which is not a true comparison)


iPhone 6+
Nexus 6
Size
158.1 x 77.8 x 7.1 mm
159.26 x 82.98 x 10.06 mm
Screen Size
5.5”
6.0”
Resolution
1920x1080
2560x1440
Processor
1.4GHz x2 (64bit)
2.7GHz x4
Chip
A8
Snapdragon 805
RAM
1GB
3GB
Storage
16/64/128
32/64
Camera
8MP (1/3”) / 1.2MP
13MP / 2.1MP
Battery
2915mAh
3220mAh
Price
16GB - $860
64GB - $970
128GB - $1080
32GB - $750
64GB - $?? (~$800)

So you can see that although it is marginally larger (see the image below) a bigger, higher resolution screen is crammed in there, and everything else the Nexus 6 trumps easily.

After seeing the physical size myself I'm maybe rethinking the 'too big' phenomenon I was worried about.

Pricing is definitely an advantage that the device has over the 6+, so it'll be interesting to see how the subsidized prices will lay out.
