After releasing its Nexus 5, Google has unveiled the Nexus 6 during an event in San Francisco. In the fall of 2015, Google has released a new Nexus 6P device and now there are many users who ask themselves if it’s really worth changing the Nexus 6 for the Nexus 6P.
Well, today we’re going to talk about these two devices and we’ll let you decide which one suits you better.
The Nexus 6P measures 159.3×77.8mm and weights about 178 grams. At the same time, the device is just 7.3mm slim thick, means that it is taller, but not as wide or thick as the Nexus 6, which measures 159.3x83x10.1mm. In addition, the Nexus 6P is also 6 grams lighter, which is not a big difference, but we had to mention it.
The Nexus 6 is available in two colors (blue and white), while the Nexus 6P comes in three colors (graphite, frost and aluminum). The Nexus 6P also features an all metal build, which gives it a premium look, while the Nexus 6 has a plastic finish.
In addition, the Nexus 6P also features USB Type-C charging and a Nexus imprint fingerprint sensor on the rear side.
The Nexus 6 comes with an AMOLED capacitive touchscreen display that measures 5.96-inches, it supports a resolution of 2560×1440 pixels at 493 ppi and it’s protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. On the other hand, the Nexus 6P features an AMOLED capacitive touchscreen display that measures only 5.7-inches, supports a resolution of 2560×1440 pixels at 518 ppi and it’s protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 4.
The Nexus 6 comes with a 13MP primary camera that features OIS, dual-LED flash, touch focus, face detection, panorama HDR and is able to record at 2160p@30fps. The secondary camera is not that good, as it supports only 2MP, which is very weak nowadays.
The Nexus 6P features a primary camera of 12.3MP that features laser autofocus, dual-LED flash, geo-tagging, touch focus, face detection, HDR, panorama and it’s able to record videos at 2106p@30fps and 720p@240fps. The secondary camera of Nexus 6P is an 8MP one, which is able to record at 1080p@30fps and it is pretty good.
Processors, Graphic Cards & RAM
The Nexus 6 comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 chipset, a quad-core Krait 450 processor clocked at 2.7GHz and an Adreno 420 GPU.
On the other hand, the Nexus 6P features a Qualcomm MSM8994 Snapdragon 810 chipset that’s formed from a quad-core Cortex A57 clocked at 2.0GHz and a quad-core Cortex A53 clocked at 1.55GHz. When it comes to the graphics card, the Nexus 6P comes with an Adreno 430 GPU, which is a bit more powerful than the one found on the Nexus 6.
Storages & Batteries
Neither the Nexus 6 nor the Nexus 6P features a card slot, so we suggest you to think twice when you are purchasing one of these two devices, as you will not be able to expand the internal storage. The Nexus 6 comes in two storage variants of 32GB and 64GB, while the Nexus 6P comes in three storage variants of 32GB, 64GB and 128GB. Both devices feature 3GB of RAM, which in our opinion is enough for handling multiple applications at the same time.
The Nexus 6 features a non-removable battery of 3220 mAh, while the Nexus 6P features a bigger battery of 3450 mAh which is also non-removable.
