The LG G4 is the latest flagship model from LG Electronics and it is simply waiting for a face-off with the LG Nexus 6. Let us start with a comparison of the two devices. In case you are familiar with Motorola’s Moto X 2014 flagship, you will notice a huge resemblance between the Nexus 6 and the LG G4. After ditching LG, Google teamed up with Motorola and created the Google Nexus 6.
The latest Nexus 6 has asymmetrical bezel and the largest Nexus smartphone so far measuring 159.3x83x10.1 mm. It has dual-stereo speakers located at the top and the bottom portion of the front panel and in the back we have Nexus written vertically, below the dimple housing the ‘M’ logo.
Meanwhile, the LG G4 is quite different from its predecessor, meaning that the company has now discarded the brushed metal approach and has instead, come up with two different ideas. In one model, there is genuine leather with stitching that runs down the middle. Meanwhile, the other model has the plastic back cover with a 3D Diamond pattern.
Compared to the Nexus 6, the phone measures 148.9×76.1×9.8 mm, The Nexus 6 has an AMOLED Display from Samsung with a screen size of 5.96inches and is capable of supporting a QHD resolution of 1440×2560 pixels at a high 493ppi.
The LG G4 has a QHD screen with an IPS LCD panel measuring 5.5inches. It has a pixel density which is denser a538ppi. When the brightness is adjusted to maximum, the LG G4 will be able to produce more natural colors. Compared to that, the whites in Nexus 6 almost look like yellow. However, both the displays are protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3.
In the camera department, the Google Nexus 6 has a 13MP camera with optical image stabilization and dual-LED flash. In terms of the secondary camera, the Nexus 6 has a 2MP shooter, which is far below in quality compared to LG’s 8MP front snapper.
The Nexus 6 is powered by a 3,220mAh battery, which is non-renewable in nature and will last longer, thanks to the Doze feature which was added in Android M. With a ‘turbo-charger’ adapter, the device can charge upto 50% in a single hour. The G4 on the other hand, has a smaller replaceable 3000mAh battery that lasts long enough.
