Nexus 6 and Note 4 compared in new Carphone Warehouse video

A new video from Carphone Warehouse gives us a quick look at how the Nexus 6 and Note 4 compare.
October 20, 2014

When it comes to big-smartphones (aka phablets), the Samsung Galaxy Note series still reigns supreme but the new Google Nexus 6 is certainly a solid competitor, despite its lack of a stylus. Curious as to how the two devices stack up against one another? A new video from Carphone Warehouse gives us a quick comparison of the two devices.

Considering its only a minute and 46-seconds, don’t expect a lot of detail here, but it’s still a nice video. It’s worth mentioning that the side-by-side shows that the Nexus 6 is clearly bigger than Samsung’s Note 4, though not significantly so.

Honestly, it’s really hard to say which phone is the better here. They both have excellent hardware, but their approach to software and features are dramatically different. The Nexus 6 totes a stock Android approach and leaves out special features like fingerprint readers and HRMs, in order to provide a pure Android experience that is smooth and as bloat free as possible. In contrast, the Note 4 is jammed full of software features and special sensors. It all comes down to which approach fits you the best.

For a better look at the Note 4, you’ll want to check out our full review. For more details on the Nexus 6, be sure to check out our original announcement post.
