Samsung Galaxy Note 4 vs Google Nexus 6 – which is best?
The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and the Google Nexus 6 are arguably the premiere phablets currently available – but which is better? Read on, to find out!
The Note 4 has a 5.7″ super AMOLED screen running at 1440×2560 resolution (4x720p). The Nexus 6 is very similar – with a 5.96″ AMOLED screen running at the same resolution.
The Note 4 is powered by a Snapdragon 805 processor, which runs two quadcore processors totalling 2.7ghz. There’s 32GB of on-board storage, and 3GB of RAM. There’s also near parity on the Nexus 6 – which is also powered by a Snapdragon 805. Similarly, it also comes with 32GB of storage and 3GB of RAM.
The cameras are where the differences between the phones starts to emerge.
The Note 4 has a 16 MP camera – taking photos at 5312 x 2988 pixels, and videos at 2K (at 30fps).
The Nexus 6 meanwhile only has a 13MP camera, photographing at 4128 x 3096 – though it can also shoot 2K video at 30fps. Both phones offer optical image stabilisation.
The front camera is also better on the Note 4 – at 3.7MP compared to the Nexus 6’s 2 MP.
Software and Extras
Perhaps the big difference at present is on software – with the Note 4 only running Android KitKat, compared to the Nexus 6’s Lollipop. But Samsung is expected to release a software upgrade at some point in the future.
The difference here is perhaps arguably philosophical: Do you prefer plain Android, as Google intended, or do you like the Samsung bolt-ons like S-Health? The Note 4 also comes with a stylus, which some users have found useful for note taking and drawing.

They both have different strengths and weaknesses. It would be unfair to label one as better than the other. It really depends on what features the consumer prefers on their device. http://fusionofideas.com/detail/1954/mobile-app-development
