The Huawei Nexus 6P has been released in September 2015, while the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge has hit the stores this month. Today we’re going to compare these two devices, which come with some awesome specifications and let you decide which one suits your needs better.
The Nexus 6P measures 159.3×77.8×7.3mm and weights 178 grams. Huawei, its creator, made its back of metal and added a horizontal black glass bar at the top, which houses the rear camera and NFC. Below it sits a fingerprint scanner with which you can make online payments via Android Pay. On the other hand, the Galaxy S7 Edge is thicker and lighter, as it measures 150.9×72.6×7.7mm and weights 157 grams. Unlike its predecessor, it’s much larger, but the design is identical: the back is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 4 and the sides are covered by a metal frame. The fingerprint scanner is located in the same place: inside the home button.
The Nexus 6P has an AMOLED display of 5.7-inch that supports a resolution of 2560×1440 pixels at 518 ppi and it’s protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 4. The Galaxy S7 Edge comes with a smaller 5.5-inch display that supports a resolution of 2560×1440 pixels at 534 ppi and it’s protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 4.
Processors, Graphics Cards & RAM
The Nexus 6P features a Qualcomm MSM8994 Snapdragon 810 chipset with an octa-core processor formed from a quad-core Cortex A57 processor clocked at 2GHz and a quad-core Cortex A53 processor clocked at 1.55GHz, an Adreno 430 graphics card and 3GB of RAM.
On the other hand, the Galaxy S7 Edge comes in two variants, as follows:
– one of the models has a Qualcomm MSM8996 Snapdragon 820 chipset, a quad-core processor formed from a dual-core Kryo processor clocked at 2.15GHz and a dual-core Kryo processor clocked at 1.6GHz, an Adreno 530 graphics card and 4GB of RAM
– the other one houses an Exynos 8890 chipset, which is powered by an octa-core processor formed from a quad-core Mongoose processor clocked at 2.3GHz and a quad-core Cortex A53 processor clocked at 1.6GHz, a Mali-T880 MP12 graphics card and 4GB of RAM.
The Nexus 6P has been released in three internal storage variants of 128GB, 64GB and 32GB, but, unfortunately, it doesn’t offer a card slot for storage expansion. The Galaxy S7 Edge comes only in two internal storage variants of 32GB and 64GB, which you can expand up to 200GB using a microSD card.
The Nexus 6P sports a primary camera of 12.3MP that features laser autofocus, dual-LED flash, touch focus, face detection, geo-tagging, HDR, panorama and a secondary camera of 8MP. The Galaxy S7 Edge comes with a primary camera of 12MP that supports OIS, LED flash, geo-tagging, touch focus, auto HDR, panorama, face detection and the secondary camera is 5MP.
Both devices come with non-removable batteries and their capacities are: 3450 mAh (Nexus 6P) and 3600 mAh (Galaxy S7 Edge).
