Today we’re going to compare Google’s Huawei Nexus 6P phablet, which was launched last fall with Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box, and the OnePlus 2, the successor of the successful OnPlus One, a flagship with a very affordable price, that was created by a Chinese company.
The Nexus 6P measures 159.3×77.8×7.3mm and weights 178 grams. This is Google’s first smartphone with a metal body and a fingerprint scanner on the back. The device looks a lot like Huawei’s Ascend P8, but it features a protruding black glass band running along the upper edge, and which contains the rear camera. The OnePlus 2 is thicker and slightly lighter as it measures 151.8×74.9×9.9mm and weights 175 grams. It has a rectangular body, unlike the floating arc design used by its predecessor and its back features a Sandstone Black texture, but the device is 1mm thicker and has a metal frame protecting the sides. Also, below the screen was placed a home key with a fingerprint scanner hidden inside.
The Nexus 6P comes with an AMOLED display of 5.7-inch that supports a resolution of 2560×1440 pixels at 518ppi and it’s protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 4. On the other hand, the OnePlus 2 has a smaller IPS LCD display of 5.5-inch that supports a lower resolution of 1920×1080 pixels at 401ppi and it’s protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3.
