Apple iPhone 6S Plus vs Google Huawei Nexus 6P: Specs, Features and Price comparison

Made in collaboration of Huawei and Google, Huawei Nexus 6P is the Google’s latest flagship smartphone. The Nexus 6P is a stiff competitor to the newly launched Apple iPhone 6S Plus. Now, you might be wondering how these two devices fare against each other. Here is an in-depth comparison of Nexus 6P and iPhone 6S Plus.


As far as the size is concerned, both devices are quite similar. The Nexus 6P is a bit bigger with 6.27×3.06×0.29 inches body dimensions as compared to 6.23×3.07×0.29 inches Apple iPhone 6S Plus.

There is also a minor difference between the weights of the two smartphones, with the iPhone 6S Plus being a bit heavier. When it comes to the look and the feel of the two devices, the Nexus 6P may have a bit of a setback as some users may not like the small bulge that is at the back of the device where the camera and other sensors of the device are present. Alike its predecessor, Apple iPhone 6S Plus has a great aesthetic feel and looks.



The Huawei Nexus 6P boasts a 5.7-inch (1440 x 2560) resolution display, whereas the Apple iPhone 6S Plus features a 5.5-inch Full-HD display with screen resolution of 1920 x 1080p. This equates to the fact that with the Nexus 6P, the viewing experience will be more vivid and crisp. The 3D touch feature on the iPhone 6S Plus is a very new add-on.

Processor and Storage:

The Nexus 6P runs on a Quad-Core Cortex-A53 or a Quad-Core Cortex-A57 paired with 3GB of RAM alongside with an Adreno 430 GPU for graphics processing. The smartphone comes in three different storage variants i.e. 32GB. 64GB and 128GB.

On the other hand, Apple iPhone 6S Plus comes packed with an A9 processor and M9 co-processor paired with 2GB RAM. The handset is available in three storage variants i.e. 16GB, 64GB and 128GB.

Here, we would say that the Huawei Nexus 6P will have an edge when we consider the overall speed and performance.


On the camera front, the Nexus 6 beats the iPhone 6S Plus with a 12.3MP primary camera and 8MP front-facing camera as opposed to the 12MP iSight primary camera and 5MP front-facing camera on the Apple iPhone 6S Plus.

In the video recording, however, there is not much difference as far as the specifications are concerned. Both smartphones are capable of recording 4K videos at 30 fps and slow-motion shots at 240 fps with 720p quality.


The Huawei Nexus 6P comes packed with a 3,450 mAh lithium-polymer battery, which clearly has the greater capacity as opposed to the non-removable 2,915 mAh Li-polymer battery of iPhone 6S Plus.



The Huawei Nexus 6P is available to buy at Rs. 39,999 for the 32GB and Rs. 42,999 for the 64GB variant. Whereas the Apple iPhone 6S Plus is available to buy at Rs. 72,000, Rs. 82,000 and Rs. 92,000 for the 16, 64 and 128GB variants respectively.


In terms of raw power, the Google Huawei Nexus 6P has a definitive edge over the Apple iPhone 6S Plus. But, when we consider the aesthetic appeal, the iPhone 6S Plus may steal the show there. However, the specifications that Nexus 6P offers at a much cheaper price is an important thing to consider.
