Today we’re going to talk about two flagship smartphones: the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge and Huawei Nexus 6P. The Nexus 6P is slightly less powerful than the Galaxy S7 Edge, because it was released in the fall of 2015, but that doesn’t make it a weak device. With other words, it really depends on your needs.
If you are that kind of person who wants access to the latest technology, then the Galaxy S7 Edge is surely the best choice. However, if you don’t care about owning a device that’s already a few months old, the Nexus 6P might also be an awesome choice.
The new Galaxy S7 Edge comes with one of the best designs out there. In addition, the device has a 5.5-inch curved quad HD display, wireless charging, Samsung Pay, a Snapdragon 820 processor, a microSD card slot, a 12MP primary camera, 4GB of RAM and a battery of 3600 mAh.
On the other hand, the Nexus 6P features a 5.7-inch quad display, USB-C support, front-facing speakers, access to Project Fi, a primary camera of 12MP, 3GB of RAM and a battery with a capacity of 3450 mAh.
The Nexus 6P runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow, likewise the Galaxy S7 Edge, but Google’s Nexus 6P will receive the Android N OS sooner than the devices manufactured by Samsung. It is good that after a new Android OS version is released, it usually takes a few months until Samsung’s devices start receiving it.
The Nexus 6P doesn’t come with expandable storage and wireless charges, and doesn’t have an IP68 certification as the Galaxy S7 Edge handset, which means that many users will decide to go for Samsung’s device just because of these features.
In addition, Samsung is a recognizable and trusted brand, and let’s face it, on paper the Galaxy S7 is superior to Nexus 6P. However, if someone don’t have too much money to spend on a smartphone, we’re pretty sure that (s)he will prefer to purchase the Nexus 6P.
