In case you’ve chosen the iPhone 6 over the Nexus 6, you will most likely miss 4 features that were exclusive on Android 5.0 Lollipop, the OS that will power up the upcoming Nexus 6.
Here are the 4 features that you will most likely miss on your iPhone 6 that will be available on Nexus 6.
Guest or sharing mode
In concordance with Phone Arena, Google worked on introducing the ability to create a guest profile on a mobile device in earlier Android editions, but this feature was considered more useful in the settings for a tablet, especially if you want to share the device with your family.
However, in Lollipop, the device sharing is extended to Nexus 6 and other Android phones that will keep you calm when you allow your kids to use your device for games or in case you borrow the device to a friend and don’t want him to have access to your personal stuff. You will be able to set the files and applications the user can have access to when he’s in Guest mode, meaning that your personal stuff and the settings of the phone will be untouched.
USB support and extended memory
Until now, Apple has decided to restrict folder access to the device when it’s hooked up with your PC or Mac. However, this doesn’t happen on Android and Nexus and Google’s operating system allows full file access and exploration while connected to a PC. The Android devices are recognized as external drives while they are connected via USB on a PC, which will make you an easier life when you want to exchange some files from your Android device to your PC and vice-versa.
Let’s not forget that the iPhone 6 comes with an internal memory which can’t be extended, since it doesn’t support a micro SD card, while Nexus 6 allows you to do that without a problem. The storage may be a big problem for the iPhone 6 users.
Full application control
Android 5.0 such as its predecessors supports the idea of allowing the users full control of the applications without any problems. The Nexus 6 and Android 5.0 users will be able to install and use any application they want but keep in mind that there are some risks. At the same time, applications which cannot be deleted (as they come pre-installed) can be hidden. Both of these concepts are not available for the iPhone users and this didn’t change even with the iPhone 6.
More battery life
Google’s Project Volta will boost devices that will run the upcoming Android 5.0 Lollipop. When your device’s battery gets at 15 percent, the feature will kick in and your device will last for around 90 more minutes. However, keep in mind that when this feature is activated, your device’s functionalities will be limited.
The upcoming Google Nexus 6 will start its global rollout in early November.
