There is just a lot of competition around, now that Apple has done the one thing every user has been craving for, a lot tougher decisions have to be made. Google did not release a standard sized phone this year, rather they felt inspired from god known what and released a 6 inch phone- the Google Nexus 6 by Motorola. Apple knew they had to offer a larger display and came with the 6 and 6 Plus, 6 Plus being the larger phone with 5.5 inch display.
So how do these stack up against each other? The Apple iPhone 6 Plus has a 5.5 inch display with a full HD resolution and the Nexus 6 comes with a 6 inch Quad HD resolution. That makes the Nexus 6 a lot denser and detailed but you can’t beat the saturated colours on the iPhone 6 Plus and the 6 Plus can’t beat the clarity of the Nexus 6. Both of these phones have some incredible speakers.
The Apple iPhone 6 Plus with the state of the art camera “might be” or probably is better than the 13MP sensor on the Nexus 6. You should not really compare the processors and ecosystem because it is just too different and provide their own experience. That includes RAM. On the Nexus 6 you get the 32GB and 64GB versions and Apple offers the 6 Plus for 16GB, 64GB and 128GB versions.
