The Huawei Nexus 6P is a device that has been released back in September 2015 with Android 6.0 Marshmallow, while the Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016) has hit the stores in April 2016 and it was released directly with 6.0.1 Marshmallow. Today we will compare these two handsets and let you decide which one of them suits your needs better.
The Huawei Nexus 6P measures 159.3×77.8×7.3mm and weights 178 grams. The manufacturer has used its own design style and the result was more than satisfying. The customers liked the metal body and the black horizontal strip from the top of the back, even if it was slightly protruding. The Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016) is thicker and slightly lighter, as it measures 151.7x76x7.8mm and weights 170 grams, but it has a simpler design: the device is made entirely by metal and the back has curved edges.
The Huawei Nexus 6P comes with an AMOLED display of 5.7-inch that supports a resolution of 2560×1440 pixels at 518 ppi. The Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016) has a smaller super AMOLED display of 5.5-inch that supports a lower resolution of 1280×720 pixels at 267 ppi.
