Samsung Galaxy Note 5 vs Nexus 6, superior or saving
The new Samsung Galaxy Note is always one of the biggest launches every year, and the Galaxy Note 5 has recently hit the shelves. The latest Note has some top-notch specs, but some loyal fans of the line were disappointed about the non-removable battery and lack of microSD storage expansion. It’s time to put it up against another phablet, and we’re showing a comparison of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 vs Nexus 6.
The Galaxy Note 5 has a 5.7-inch display and last year’s Motorola-made Google Nexus 6 has an even larger screen size of 5.96-inches. Therefore if mammoth handsets are your preference, both of these could be on your radar. You can check out much more on the Note 5 or Nexus 6 in our previous articles on them from the links provided, but sometimes a video comparison can be a really useful way of seeing how two top phones stack up against each other.
We’ll start with a brief reminder of some key specs of each before we get to the video. The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 has an Exynos 7420 octa-core processor, a 5.7-inch display with Quad HD resolution of 2560 x 1440, and 4GB of RAM. It has a 16-megapixel rear camera, 5-megapixel front-facing camera, and 3000 mAh battery. It launched running the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop operating system with Samsung’s TouchWiz, and comes with the use of the S Pen stylus.
On the other side of the coin the Motorola Nexus 6 has a Snapdragon 805 quad-core processor, a 5.96-inch display with Quad HD resolution, and 3GB of RAM. It has a 13-megapixel rear camera, 2-megapixel front-facing snapper, and 3220 mAh battery. It launched on virtually stock Android 5.0 Lollipop, upgradable to Android 5.1. Both phones have internal storage options of 32 or 64GB (both non-expandable), and both have non-removable batteries.
Beneath this article we’ve positioned a YouTube video from Phone Arena that shows an insightful comparison of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 vs Nexus 6. It begins with discussing the designs of each and this is handy for some close-up looks of the handsets from all angles. The comparison then covers many different aspects such as the displays, software experience, performance, and camera capabilities (with image samples and video footage).
Following this the reviewer covers audio quality, call quality, battery life, and prices. Ultimately it’s felt that in the battle of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 vs Nexus 6, it’s the Samsung device that is the superior choice. However, the significant price difference between the two could mean that the Nexus 6 could appeal to those who want to make a saving. Will your choice be the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 or Nexus 6?
