You’re in the home stretch, buying the last gifts for Christmas for your loved ones, but you forgot to put yourself on the first place. It is absolutely normal to want a new gadget, a more powerful and bigger smartphone, and the market is full of options. For example, Samsung released an excellent phablet with an ultra-sharp Quad HD display and a more responsive stylus, while Google brought its massive phone, Nexus 6, which works like a mini tablet.
The advantage with the Note 4 is the S Pen stylus, otherwise, you’d have to stretch your finger to reach all corners, and the experience is not so pleasant with the Nexus 6, because you’ll have to use both hands to operate on it: one to hold the device, and the other to tap on the screen.
Both devices have plastic backs (with faux leather patter on the Note 4 and matter plastic on the Nexus 6), and both devices come with a metal band that surrounds the edges. The Note 4 looks like its predecessor, but it removed the fake stitches from the edges, and the Nexus 6, because it was made by Motorola, resembles one of the company’s successful phones, the Moto X.
The Note 4 is thinner, shorter and lighter than its rival, measuring 153.5×78.6×8.5 mm and weighting 176grams, and has a fingerprint sensor on the front panel, hidden into the home button. The Nexus 6 measures 159.3x83x10.1 mm and it’s 8grams heavier, being water resistant, although it doesn’t have a certification.
The Note uses a Super AMOLED display of 5.7inches with a resolution of 1440×2560 pixels at 515ppi, while the Nexus 6 has an AMOLED screen with the same resolution, but with a lower pixel density of 493ppi.
Regarding the cameras, the Note 4 definitely steps ahead with its 16MP snapper, which takes excellent photos in low light conditions, plus it has an efficient zoom which allows you to enlarge between 4x and 8x. The Nexus 6 has a 13MP back camera that features optical image stabilization, just like the Note 4.
As for the batteries, they have the same capacity, 3220 mAh, but in some benchmarks, the Note 4 had a longer battery life when streaming video over WiFi, with a brightness set at 75 percent, dropping 10 percent/hour, while the Nexus dropped a bit quicker, 12 percent/hour. But on paper, the Nexus 6 offers 24 hours of talking time on 3G, with 3 hours more than its opponent. Each phone comes with its own fast charging mode, and Samsung allows you to charge your battery from 0 to 50 percent within a half of hour, thanks to the Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 2.0 technology.
Both devices are powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 quad core 2.7 GHz Krait 450 processor, which pairs with 3GB of RAM, but there is another variant of the Note 4, which comes with an Exynos 5433 octa core.
The Nexus 6 has built in memories of 32 and 64GB, while the Note 4 brings 32GB of storage, expandable up to 128GB.
