Smartphone vendors are competing to grab more buyers, which gives consumers the advantage of getting the best phone within any budget.
Here's a comparison between the latest flagship phones, the Google Nexus 6 and OnePlus One, to help you decide which smartphone is right for you.
Google Nexus 6 Vs OnePlus One
Google's latest flagship phone, Nexus 6, has a 5.96-inch Quad-HD display with 1440 x 2560 pixel resolution. The handset carries razor-sharp display quality and has 493 pixels per inch density. It is protected by a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 with on-screen buttons and has thin bezels.
As for the OnePlus' flagship One smartphone, the display has Full HD 1080 x 1920 pixel resolution. It is slightly smaller compared to the Nexus 6, at 5.5 inches, and has a pixel density of 401ppi.
Under The Hood
Google Nexus 6 is faster compared to OnePlus One as it is powered by a 2.7 GHz quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor. But the difference is not massive. OnePlus One runs almost a similar 2.5 GHz quad core Snapdragon 801 processor.
The Nexus 6 packs 3GB RAM alongside 32GB or 64GB optional built-in storage. Sadly, there is no option to upgrade storage using a microSD slot.
The OnePlus One also boasts 3GB RAM and comes in 16GB or 64GB memory options. The One smartphone also does not offer memory expansion using microSD.
In terms of Google OS powering the two handsets, Google advances by running Android Lollipop while OnePlus is still using the previous Android KitKat version out of the box.
On the camera front, both phones pack similar sensors. The Nexus 6 offers 13-megapixel rear-facing camera with autofocus and dual LED flash. It also has a 2-megapixel front shooter for selfies and video calling.
OnePlus One also offers a 13-megapixel rear camera with a pixel resolution of 4128 x 3096 and a dual LED flash. On the front side, OnePlus One beats Nexus 6 by featuring a 5-megapixel shooter.
Google's big-screened phone uses a 3,220mAh battery while a 3,100mAh battery powers up the OnePlus One.
OnePlus is known for its effective pricing and describes its One phone as the flagship killer. The OnePlus One smartphone can be bought for Rs. 21,999. But the smartphone cannot be purchased directly like Google's Nexus 6 as the Chinese manufacturer is using the invite-only model to push sales of its OnePlus One.
Google's Nexus 6 smartphone in this category competes with other flagships from Samsung and Apple. The 32GB version of the phone is priced at Rs. 44,000 while the high-end 64GB model sells for Rs. 49,000.
If you want a high-end budget smartphone, then OnePlus One is a better choice. But acquiring a OnePlus' requires patience, while Google Nexus 6 can be bought instantly.
