  • Google has now declared 2015 successor models to both the Nexus 5 and Nexus 6 with the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P, both running the most recent programming with Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
  • In 2014 it was the turn of the Motorola-constructed Nexus 6. Be that as it may, the Nexus 6 –– dissimilar to its LG-made ancestors –– was marginally diverse to what preceded. To begin with, it was a phablet and a great deal greater than the Nexus 5 and, second, it was a ton dearer than its forerunner with a beginning cost of £499 sans sim. It has crazy specs and a huge battery, be that as it may, and it additionally runs Android Lollipop in its purest structure. In any case, then so too does the Nexus 5…
  • Google’s Nexus handsets will be the first gadgets to get Android Marshmallow when it starts taking off later on this quarter. Both the Nexus 5 and Nexus 6 are qualified, and also Google’s Nexus tablets. The upgrade is a sizeable one, look at some of Android Marshmallow’s Key Features, and will start sifting down to other Android gadgets from Google’s equipment accomplices in the coming weeks and months after its introductory rollout to Nexus gadgets. The overhaul is completely highlighted and you read how it looks at to Apple’s most recent redesign here — Android Marshmallow versus Apple’s iOS 9.
  • You can still buy the Nexus 6 on the Google Play store (for now), but the Nexus 5 has been phased out, although with a bit of sleuthing it’s still possible to find one with third party retailers or on eBay.

Nexus 6 vs. Nexus 5: Design

  1. The contrasts between the Nexus 4 and Nexus 5, while self-evident, weren’t precisely jolting in that one could change from one to the next with practically zero trouble. You had a marginally bigger, better quality showcase and new form materials, and enhanced specs, however that was about it –– nothing excessively emotional had changed with respects, making it impossible to the general look, feel and weight.
  2. n6-moreeverything-1600_0The Nexus 6 is a totally diverse mammoth, on the other hand, with its MASSIVE 6in presentation and totally reconsidered body outline. In general, it’s a limitlessly prevalent looking handset that takes the larger part of its configuration motivation from Motorola’s altogether astounding Moto X 2014 handset. The Nexus 6 looks premium, highlights a metallic edge, and has a madly capable QHD board on the front of it, which predominates the Nexus 5’s setup both as far as quality and size.
  3. The Nexus 6 is the most premium-looking handset Google has created to date, with its aluminum casing and appealing blue and white shading alternatives. Like never before the Nexus 6 feels like a handset than can run toe-to-toe with a best’s percentage composed handsets right now accessible – handsets like the iPhone 6, LG G3 and HTC One M8. On the off chance that you’ve seen the Moto X 2014, you’ll have a smart thought about what we’re discussing, as the Nexus 6 acquires intensely from its configuration. Also, this is something to be thankful for, undoubtedly. Motorola is without a sad remnant of an uncertainty one of the best OEMs working in the Android space at present. No big surprise Google picked it to fabricate the Nexus 6.
  4. The Nexus 6 is A LOT greater than its antecedent, however. Furthermore, when we say, “A LOT”, we truly mean it (recall: this thing packs in a 6in showcase). Motorola has been exceptionally astute with the outline, in any case, and has lessened the bezels’ extent keeping in mind the end goal to make the handset more convenient, yet this still doesn’t get around the way that this handset is A LOT greater than the Nexus 5, and this could bring about a few issues for longstanding Nexus fans. The handset itself is rather special, though, as it represents yet another switch in the way Google is pitching its Nexus line of smartphones. Previously, the Nexus 4 and Nexus 5 were all about high-end specs and low-end prices, with savings made wherever possible (the camera, for instance).

Nexus 6 vs. Nexus 5: Display

  1. This aspect is pretty straightforward: the Nexus 5 has a 1080p display, while the Nexus 6 features an insane, LG G3-style 5.96in QHD resolution (four times the resolution of the Samsung-built Galaxy Nexus). If pixel density and overall screen resolution is your thing, then the Nexus 6 is, by far and away, the superior handset and is definitely a very comprehensive update over the Nexus 5.
  2. screen_shot_2014-10-28_at_15.07.03QHD boards gazes completely hypnotizing close upward, as effectively confirm on the LG G3 and Galaxy Note 4, and will go ahead to end up the standard in 2015. The main drawback connected with QHD boards at present is the prerequisite for super-substantial battery cells, which, thus, implies regularly expanding handset sizes, so as to give enough power in order to guarantee an entire day’s charge. In any case, in the setting of this piece, be that as it may, it is a disputable issue, as the Nexus 5’s battery life was grisly abominable at any rate.

Nexus 6 vs. Nexus 5: Imaging

  1. The camera has been immensely enhanced as well, and now incorporates OSI, 4K video recording capacities and an enhanced 13MP sensor. Notwithstanding, in spite of being noticably superior to the Nexus 5 straight out the crate, the Nexus 6, as with most Nexus gadgets, remains fairly dull in the photography division – this has never been a Nexus’ foundation experience and it appears Google needs to think endeavors somewhere else.
  2. Pictures caught utilizing the back sensor as a part of tolerable light are above normal, I’d say, despite the fact that they don’t tend to look on a par with results caught utilizing the Galaxy Note 4 or LG G3.
  3. Shots have a propensity for turning out a touch boisterous as well, if taken in the wrong setting; strangely this tends to be inside with unnatural lighting. Auto-center is observably slower than the stage distinguish technique you get on board the iPhone 6 Plus and Galaxy Note 4. However, honestly, this will barely be a major issue for most clients.
  4. nexus-6fWhile it’s fair to say that the Nexus 5’s camera capabilities are still not the best on the market, it’s important to note that Google’s software updates since launch have improved the imaging performance considerably. The update to Android 4.4.1 introduced a new camera application with tweaked software optimizations.

Nexus 6 vs. Nexus 5: Final Thoughts

  1.  As I said before, this handset is a bit too huge for my preferring. Yet, that is only my own inclination. For those that wouldn’t fret super-uber huge screens, be that as it may, the Nexus 6 speaks to a serious recommendation. Not just does it convey the most recent form of Android, however it likewise looks totally lovely, has a tremendously enhanced camera, and packs in Qualcomm’s most recent and most noteworthy silicon.
  2. Be that as it may, this new equipment include some significant downfalls –– the Nexus 6 is the most costly handset Google has ever created. Keeping in mind it took a while for Google to affirm the UK estimating, we now know the Nexus 6 will cost £499 for the 32GB model and £549 for the 64GB unit. That is still less expensive than the iPhone 6 Plus and Galaxy Note 4, yet it is still A LOT more costly than a year ago’s Nexus 5. Still… with specs like the Nexus 6’s this was continually going to be the situation.
  3. Still, as noted by Android Authroity, the Nexus 5 still makes an extremely convincing case –– even after this time: “It may sound somewhat hard to spend your well deserved money on the Nexus 5 when you take a gander at the specs found in a leaders’ portion that have hit since it’s introduction. Be that as it may, one central point emerges when looking at all of these gadgets… the cost. The Nexus 5 is as yet being offered at its unique cost of $349.99 from Google Play. Contrasted with different gadgets, the Galaxy S5 is offered around $550 – $600 opened, the HTC One M8 for around $750 – $800 opened and the Nexus 6 begins at $650. The main telephone that supports nearly with regards to cost is the OnePlus One (beginning at $300), however that is whether you can get your and on a welcome or get to it through pre-order.
