iPhone 6 vs older Nexus 5, benefits clarified


The iPhone 6 is making headline news and releases in just three more days alongside the larger iPhone 6 Plus. One of the main rivals to the standard iPhone 6 will be Google’s popular Nexus 5 smartphone, and they both have similarly sized displays. Today we’re sharing a video of the iPhone 6 vs. older Nexus 5 that clarifies the benefits of each.

We’ve already given a specs comparison of the Nexus 5 vs. iPhone 6 so please do check that out for a straightforward breakdown. The YouTube video we have for you today could be really useful though, as it aims to show the advantages of each in a concise way. It comes from TotalTechWar and is particularly handy if specific aspects of a phone are more important to you than others.

The comparison begins with showing the stronger points of the Nexus 5 when opposed to the iPhone 6. Some of the benefits include wireless charging, 100% more RAM, the cheaper price, and a notifications light. The video continues by showing the advantages of the iPhone 6 over the Nexus 5, and some pointers are its aluminum build, dual flash, a fingerprint sensor, and louder speaker.

We’re not going to spoil your enjoyment of this iPhone 6 vs. Nexus 5 video by giving away all of the details here, but there are many more aspects pointed out. At the end you’ll see them all listed for both phones side-by-side. It would be remiss of us not to point out that the Nexus 5 was released last year and rumors suggest a Nexus 6 could arrive around Halloween this year. However, the current Nexus smartphone still has plenty to recommend it, although for some it will simply be a case of iOS vs. Android.

It would be good to hear what readers think about how these two smartphones stand up against each other. Are you a diehard iOS or Android enthusiast? Would you opt for the iPhone 6 or the Nexus 5? Let us know with your comments.

    Your div ads make your site almost useless. 3 popping up? One causing the other to be stuck “open” because it dims the screen down and doesn’t recover when the ad is closed? I bet you’re raking in the dough…

    Nexus 5 all the way! This smartphone is so quick and responsive. I have had an iphone before, and they really are getting left behind i feel. Okay, sure they look kinda nice, but i want performance. Android is also far superior to iOS. I love to customise everything on my Nexus 5, so android is really the only platform for me.

    iPhone 6 is twice the price. My Nexus5 cost £240 from Carphone Warehouse. Cheapest iPhone 6 is £539. Is it more than twice as good? I bought my Nexus 5 in April 2014 because I needed a bigger screen and was fed up waiting for Apple. I’m not now going to shell out over five hundred quid for a phone that has minimal advantages for me.

    Nexus is so much better. Yes some of the features on an iPhone 6 are slightly better but the price of the nexus 5 compared to the iphone justefies that. Plus I bet googles new android update coming in the next few months will again raise the profile of all android phones, especially the nexus. If your watching this video and are wondering which to buy. My advice would be to get a nexus. But if you want the finger print sensor and all that, shell out that extra 200 quid. Is it worth it?

    After trying to download iOS 8 on My CrApple iPad3 I am glad I got the Nexus5. iOS is twice the size of 4.4.4 KitKat. Apple needs to do some work slimming down their OS.
