We dedicate a special section solely to the screen as it is the most remarkable feature of these three smartphones. We are talking about devices that can hardly be considered simply smartphones, since they are almost tablets, hence we commonly call them phablets. What happens is that these phablets have become the market standard. The Nexus 6 has a six-inch screen, which is closer to tablets than smartphones from a few years ago. The iPhone 6 Plus has a somewhat smaller screen, 5.5 inches, while the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 goes to 5.7 inches.
The main difference is that the Nexus 6 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 have a Quad HD resolution of 2,560 x 1,440 pixels, while the iPhone 6 Plus stays with a Full HD resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels, which even so allows you to have a pixel density per inch of 401 PPI. The Nexus 6 stays with 493 PPI and the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 goes to 515 PPI, with the screen with greater clarity. In fact, it is considered the smartphone with the best screen on the market. To top it all, all three displays have the same 3D look, with some thickness, and a unique glossy finish.
We forget about the processor and RAM, since the processing capacity of the three is at a very similar level, to go to talk about the camera, in which we find very large differences. The resolution of the camera does not have to be what determines the quality of the camera, which is why it is so difficult to talk about which is better. The Samsung Galaxy Note’s camera is 16 megapixels, capable of recording at 2160p at 30 fps, and Full HD at 60 fps. Well, the Nexus 6 has a lower resolution 13 megapixel camera. But even with a lower resolution, the camera is capable of recording at 4K at 30 fps. But if that is surprising, talking about the iPhone 6 Plus then it will be even more surprising. This one carries an 8 megapixel camera, but it is capable of recording Full HD at 60 fps, and at 720p at 240 fps no less. We are actually talking about cameras with very similar characteristics and of a high level, to be talking about smartphone cameras.
The keys to each smartphone
This being the situation, in which the differences between the three smartphones are scarce, how to choose one or the other? We explain how each of the smartphones stands out.
Nexus 6 – The best
The best thing about the Nexus 6 is, without a doubt, the fact that it has the latest version of the operating system running in the most optimized way possible. If we have to talk about a smartphone that works well with Android, there is no other better than this. And it comes with all the news of the operating system. To all this we must add the six-inch screen that the smartphone has, superior to the screen of the Galaxy Note 4 or the iPhone 6 Plus. And we don’t want to forget about the front speakers, since it is probably the smartphone with the best audio of the three. You can learn about all the features of the Nexus 6 in our launch article.
iPhone 6 Plus – Best
The best thing about the iPhone 6 Plus is its operating system, although the most likely thing if you are reading this comparison here is that you prefer the Apple smartphone. iOS 8 is one of the best operating systems, and the smartphone is optimized to work with it. Nor can we forget that the multimedia characteristics of the iPhone, such as the screen or the camera, go far beyond its technical specifications, and are usually of a high quality. The camera is a clear example of this, considered one of the best mobile cameras that have ever been presented.
Samsung Galaxy Note 4 – Best
If we can highlight something about the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 it is its S Pen pointer, as well as all the applications that come to get the most out of it. Users looking to write on their smartphone, or who have used this stylus before, will know perfectly well that the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is unrivaled. In addition, the smartphone will drop in price in a matter of a few months, while it seems that the same will not happen with its rivals, so it could be a great incentive to buy the new Samsung smartphone.
