The Nexus 6P is the phablet which has been created by Huawei and it has better specs than its Nexus 5X sibling, because it uses the latest Qualcomm processor. It will be interesting to compare it to LG’s freshly released V10, which is a phablet very resistant to shocks and which has two front cameras and a secondary screen.
Designs and Displays
The Nexus 6P comes with a metallic back, which features a wide horizontal black band that is placed at the top (it contains the camera and the dual-LED flash) and which has rounded corners (Huawei was accused that they’ve stole the idea from one of ZTE’s phones, Grand S), while below it was integrated the fingerprint scanner (“Nexus Imprint”). The three color options for this device are Aluminum, Graphite and Frost, its dimensions are 159.3×77.8×7.3mm and the total weight is 178grams. The screen measures 5.7-inch and it uses Samsung’s AMOLED technology, which supports a resolution of 1440×2560 pixels at 518ppi.
The LG V10 is an interesting smartphone, with a lot of potential, because of its two unique features. The design isn’t very catchy, because it has a textured silicone back with stainless steel sides, and it’s not very luxurious because it was created to resist to shocks, (accidental drops), not to impress with its aesthetics. Anyway, the available color options are Space Black, Luxe White, Modern Beige, Ocean Blue and Opal Blue. Despite of its rugged body, the V10 isn’t very thick, measuring 8.6mm. Also, it’s 159.6mm tall, 79.3mm wide and it weights 192grams.
On its back, you’ll find a fingerprint scanner. Now comes the best part, where we’ll tell you about the two screens from the front side. In fact, there is a main screen of 5.7-inch (IPS LCD) supporting a QHD resolution at 515ppi and above it, there’s a second screen (a slim strip) which, when the main screen is turned off, it provides information about missed calls, the date and time etc, while then the main screen is awake, it provides shortcuts for your favorite applications. This screen measures 2.1-inch and has a resolution of 160 x 1040 pixels.
The Nexus 6P is more powerful with its Qualcomm MSM8994 Snapdragon 810 octa core processor (four cores clocked at 1.55GHz and four cores clocked at 2GHz), which is backed by Adreno 430 graphics and 3GB of RAM. The LG V10 has an extra GB of RAM, but it uses the previous Qualcomm MSM8992 Snapdragon 808 hexa core processor (four cores clocked at 1.44GHz and two cores clocked at 1.82GHz), which is coupled with Adreno 418 graphics.
The Nexus 6P has three variants of internal memories (32/64/128) which are unexpandable, while the LG V10 allows you to double the capacity of its internal memory of 64GB.
The 12MP rear camera (dual-LED flash, laser autofocus and 1.55µm pixel size) and the 8MP front camera of the Nexus 6P compete against LG V10’s 16 MP rear camera (laser autofocus, OIS 2.0, LED flash, f/1.8 aperture and 1/2.6” sensor size) and the two 5MP front cameras which take two photos which are merged, resulting one image .
