Camera is one of the features that is highly highlighted due to consumers’ preference on better shots.

Security feature is one among the most important features that a phone can brag of. The S6 uses a finger print scanner to access the phone when locked. On the other hand, the Nexus 6 uses retina scanner. The functionality of the retina scanner has been questioned with many critics doubting its viability. If the retina scanner can work well, it can be said to be better than the finger print scanner of the S6 but until it proves to be functioning well, galaxy S6 will still remain to be the gadget to watch in terms of security.

  1. Sorry but your knowledge on camera’s is terrible as is the discussion on them. Your talk of the storage is completely wrong. neither offer 16gig versions…. Everything you mention on the Screen is wrong too. both identical on res both being 2k, the nexus is 1/2 inch bigger size, the nexus uses gorilla glass 3 while s6 uses glass 4 and is super amoled compared to amoled and as the s6 display is smaller it ha a greater ppi. You dont even mention the difference in the processors being 32/64bit, nor any info about the camera lens.

    Really read up on your crap before you write such a poor, unfactual comparison. Possibly the worst article i read on the comparison so far….

  2. Everything aside, I think there is a something very disingenuous ploy at work here. Nexus 6 has a bigger size than the Samsung S6. Why do you show the Nexus to be smaller? I never really like the popping button on the bottom of Samsung. Never. And again, the screen size of the Nexus is a thumbs up, as such, it makes a compelling case for me to buy a Nexus 6. Can’t beat that.
    |Case close.

  3. Sorry, but the Galaxy s6 has a 2k screen. It has a higher pixel density with the same resolution because the screen is .86 inches smaller than the screen of the Nexus 6.

  4. Is this page a translation or is it a genuine article. The quality of writing is poor. The pieces are there to make a good article but the writer lacks the grammar and vocabularic knowledge to maintain any weight that the article would otherwise carry. Please do not take this comment as an insult. I only mean it as constructive critism. Who writes for your website if you don’t mind me asking?

  5. I have been with the Galaxy series for 4 years and was excited about getting the gs6 but if it has a 5.5 inch screen I will not be purchasing it. Samsung already has a Phablet, the Note series. That is Too big for the average consumer or at least me. Sorry Samsung but you will probably not do as well as you think if you put out a larger screen gs6

    1. Sir thanks for your voting we are taking your feed backs we are planning to take nexus series and we are planning to take iPhone iOS series also we are testing the devices its take time please contact with us thank you Samsung corporation India M.D Siddhartha gurthika
