A new video from Carphone Warehouse (posted on YouTube and spotted by Droid Life) shows the Nexus 6 and Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (LON:BC94) (KRX:005930)’s Galaxy Note 4 side by side, and one thing is immediately clear: they’re both massive phones. We’ve embedded the full video below, but here are some of the highlights.
Nexus 6 edges out Galaxy Note 4 in size
Of course the Nexus 6 is a bit larger than the Galaxy Note 4, and as the video demonstrates, the size difference is actually noticeable even though it might not seem like it would be. The Nexus 6 is 5.96 inches in size, while the Galaxy Note 4 is 5.7 inches.
One of the highlights in the video is the camera on the Nexus 6, which appears to work better than the cameras on the past Nexus line of phones. The reviewer does state that the images taken by the Note 4 are a bit sharper than those taken by the Nexus 6, but the Nexus 6 offers “true to life” colors and takes better pictures in the dark because of the jewel flash.
Nexus 6 experience is smoother
Unsurprisingly, the Nexus 6 appears to offer a smoother performance because it isn’t filled with the bloatware Samsung is notorious for loading onto its phones. However, the health apps offered on the Galaxy Note 4 are pretty good for those who are interested in that sort of thing, and Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL) (NASDAQ:GOOG)’s stock-Android loaded Nexus 6 doesn’t have them. Also the Note 4 has the S Pen, which differentiates it from all other phablets and is one of the things that made Samsung’s Note line of phones so popular.
Both phones feature the same size battery, which means they’re even in terms of battery life. The Nexus 6 comes with a turbo charger that in just 15 minutes provides 6 hours of charge. The Galaxy Note 4 takes 30 minutes to fill half of its battery.
