iPhone 6s vs Nexus 6P vs Galaxy S6 Specs

With so many quality devices on the market, picking a new smartphone in 2015 is as difficult a choice as it’s ever been. If you’re looking for a great value, the OnePlus 2 might be up your alley. If you prefer experimental designs, Samsung’s Galaxy S6 edge is a great option. Heck, if you want leather on the back of your phone, LG has a flagship device just for you.

DON’T MISS: The best thing about the iPhone 6s

It’s a buyer’s market, but today, we’re going to break down the specs of the three phablets that we think are going to dominate the conversation this holiday season.

You probably won’t be surprised to see the iPhone 6s Plus on this chart, but we’ve also included the well-received Galaxy Note 5 and the recently announced Nexus 6P from Google.

For a vast majority of you, the decision will simply come down to whether you prefer iOS or Android, but the reaction to all three of these oversized phones has been uniformly positive. Even the Nexus 6P, which was only announced a few days ago, has already started generating buzz ahead of its unspecified October launch date.

Speaking of the Nexus 6P, it shares some specifications with the Note 5, but impressive battery capacity of 3,450 mAh and the 8-megapixel front-facing camera might sway some Android users away from Samsung. On the other hand, the 4GB of RAM and the 16-megapixel camera sensor of the Note 5 trump both the 6s Plus and the Nexus 6P.

Although the iPhone 6s Plus is sure to outsell the competition, it will be interesting to see which Android phablet comes out on top. If you haven’t yet, be sure to read our iPhone 6s review and our Galaxy Note 5 review.
