Google has dumped the Nexus brand and replaced it with all-new Pixel phones. But will you upgrade your phone to the new Google Pixel or have the older Nexus 5X? Just have a look at the comparison of the key differences between the Nexus 5X and Google Pixel:
The lesser expensive and smaller Google Pixel is priced at £599 for the 32GB option and you can get the 128GB option at only £699. Besides, the Nexus 5X comes under £200 for the 16GB model. So, will it be worth pay more than double for the all-new Pixel?
Design & Build:
The Pixel is 8.5mm and weighs 143g in comparison with 7.9mm Nexus 5X which weighs 136g. The weight difference causes due to the glass and metal design of the Pixel. Meanwhile, the Nexus 5X features the plastic build. The new Pixel is only IP53 rated, i.e. splash resistant, whereas the Nexus 5X is not at all.
Specifications & Hardware:
In comparison with the Nexus 5X, the Pixel is smaller with its 5-inch screen. The resolution is full HD 1080×1920 pixels on both phones. The Pixel features AMOLED panel technology which offers punchier colours, although some like the 5X’s more natural look.
In terms of storage and processor, the Pixel wins. It has 4GB of RAM and the latest Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 821 processor, which outdated the combination of 2GB of RAM and Snapdragon 808 processor of the Nexus 5X.
The Pixel offers a standard 32GB option and 128GB storage options, although the storage can’t be upped by a microSD card slot. Meanwhile, the Nexus 5X provides just 16 or 32GB capabilities. Both smartphones offer the same connectivity options like NFC, GPS, Bluetooth 4.2 and dual-band 11ac Wi-Fi. However, the latest Pixel has Cat 9 LTE in comparison with Cat 6. Both smartphones have rear-mounted fingerprint scanners; however, the Pixel’s is really handy. Even, both have a USB-C connector; however, the Pixel is backed by a larger 2770mAh battery and also features fast wireless charging with v3.0.
Both smartphones have the same 12MP rear camera, dual-tone flash, 1.55µm pixels, 1/2.3 in sensor and f/2.0 aperture; although the Pixel also has a phase detection auto focus.
Although the Pixel ranks higher on DxO, the Nexus 5X also offers good quality photos and videos more than sufficient. In terms of the front-facing cam, the Pixel is a winner with its 8MP sensor, compared to the 5X’s 5MP sensor.
The Pixel comes with the latest Android 7.1 Nougat OS, alongside new navigation buttons, new-look home screen and Google tab and the built-in Google Assistant also. Meanwhile, the Nexus 5X is up-gradable to Android 7.0 Nougat and it’s uncertain when it’ll receive a 7.1 upgrade.
Thus, you can see that the Google Pixel outclasses the Nexus 5X in many areas. But both phones are worth buy. So, which one will you pick for you? Let us know in comments.
In terms of quality smartphones, two companies are there which are competing with each other as their battle is just for winning the crown to have the best smartphone – Samsung and Apple. Prior this month, Samsung introduced its latest flagship smartphone Galaxy Note 7 and the reviewers already have begun comparing the iPhone flagship offerings to the Phablet. After seeing the initial results, it appears like Apple still might be dominating the South Korean firm, Samsung, at least in terms of real work functionality.
If we go through the comparison video regarding the latest speed test between iPhone 6s and Galaxy Note 7 posted by PhoneBuff, a channel of YouTube, we can see that the latter is well behind the former even though the iPhone 6s was introduced last year.
Both smartphones were made for opening 14 apps, one after another in this speed test and when iPhone 6s was capable of performing this function in just 1 minute and 21 seconds, the Note 7 took 2 minutes and 4 seconds for finishing the same.
And opening all 14 applications the 2nd time, the Note 7 took 2 minutes and 49 seconds, whereas iPhone 6s took only 1 minute and 51 seconds.
The Note 7 is having some superb features and specifications because the phone sports a Quad-core Snapdragon 820 SoC, paired with 4GB of RAM. This Phablet is anticipated to challenge iPhone 6s, which sports Dual-core A9 processor, coupled with 2GB of RAM. Well, the tests appear to display something else.
Albeit, this test might not be ultimate evidence that iPhone 6s is a faster smartphone in comparison with the Note 7, because there is just one scenario displayed in the test, it is quite fair to predict that Apple is capable of producing an essentially better result in terms of functionality in spite of having seemingly inferior hardware due to better collaboration between the hardware and OS of its phones.
It is expected that Apple will be coming up with its latest smartphones upcoming month, and those smartphones are expected to come with a better hardware than now on iPhone 6s, and it will be exciting to see how Samsung handles the condition from now onward.
Blackberry DTEK50 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 7, These two new Android smartphones have no comparison if cost is concern, but Blackberry and Samsung Note smartphones have there unique qualities to compare.
If we look back at a week before the news of the Android world, we can see that the week includes all types of latest news about two most recent launched Android smartphones: Samsung Galaxy Note 7 and Blackberry DTEK50. These two new smartphones have entered the Android world almost at the same time. After its launch, we have seen that Samsung Galaxy Note 7 has become really popular among the masses. However, the newly launched Blackberry handset also has won the smartphone wars. Let’s have a look at their comparison:
Comparison on security:
Blackberry is back with its second Android phone, while PRIV was its first solid Android attempt. Its switching to the Google’s Android OS put a great affect to the Blackberry fans. The idea behind this attempt is just to make Android more secure and safer. It is claimed by Blackberry that its DTEK50 handset is world’s most secure smartphone. As a part of Android security offerings of Blackberry, the DTEK50 handset comes preloaded with Blackberry Password Keeper. This app helps you keep your every information including login, passwords or any other vital records safe and secure. In addition, you can use this app for creating secure passwords also. Apart from this, what are the other things that make it different from Note 7 in terms of security and safety? Here’s a list:
Dedicated security research and response teams
BID (Blackberry Integrated Detection
On-going security patching
FIPS 140-2 Compliant full disk encryption
A better boot loader
Hardware root of trust
Hardened Linux Kernel
In my personal opinion, Blackberry DTEK50 is an excellent phone by look and security options. But it lacks in fingerprint scanner and Iris scanner which Samsung Galaxy Note 7 provides us.
Blackberry fans vs. Samsung fans:
Blackberry made an incredible change after stepping on the Android world. People like Blackberry because of its top-most security assurance. As we all know that security is Blackberry’s favourite subject. Blackberry reminds me of Nexus-like visuals. Its shifting to Android is big technology news that stirred its fans greatly. After its launch, people have just gone crazy. We have found many tweets on Twitter about this phone’s specifications, especially its features. The tweets are all about this marvellous handset’s security.
On the other hand, Samsung has also made its Note 7 by keeping in mind its fans. The phone is designed for the users base specifically – those who are craving a Stylus and want a larger screen too. Melding together some great features of S7 range, Samsung has just made an excellent job again with its new S pen Stylus and iris scanner.
Galaxy Note Series users:
Since its debut in 2011, Galaxy Note series has come a long way and has experienced many challenges this year. Note series handsets are the only smartphones of Samsung which use styluses and this has made a niche target audience. Compared to the last year’s Note handset, newly launched Note 7 has received many upgrades under the hood. Thus, this phablet has gained huge amount of popularity among the masses and has been highly able to attract the Galaxy Note series users particularly.
If I discuss about Note 7’s first impressions, then I can say that it has just nailed it by its sleek design and exclusive features like IP68 water and dust protection, S Pen Stylus, Super AMOLED display and Android Marshmallow OS. Note series users prefer this model more because of its host of improvements over its predecessor Note 5. Interestingly, it is competing its rival Blackberry DTEK50 in security options also, as it comes with biometric security like fingerprint scanner and iris scanner.
In my personal opinion, both are superb smartphones. But if I think about only security, I will choose the Blackberry brand. Blackberry always ensures us secure using of mobile. On the other hand, if I think about security, advanced technology, excellent design, and superb features, I would rather choose the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. Blackberry DTEK50 needs some improvements in terms of software. Otherwise, this handset is extremely great. But according to the choice of brand, Blackberry market is not so up to the mark in terms of competition with Note series. The smartphones of Note series run on Android OS, which is user friendly, and DTEK50 is only the second phone of Blackberry in the Android market. So, if we prefer using Android and have already experienced Samsung’s features, we will definitely choose the Note 7.

The device has 16M colours which bring out nice and clear colours in the pictures. The device is multi touch and has 326ppi pixel resolution.

Then, it comes to memory. Nexus 6p has an internal memory of 32 GB with 3 GB RAM. On the other side the Apple iPhone 6S has an internal memory of 16 GB with 2 GB RAM. Both the device has no space for memory card. Therefore, memory can be expandable.

It brings out super images in low light as well. On the other side the secondary camera of the device is 5 megapixels with f/2.2, 31 mm.

No doubt Apple iPhone camera brings out super smart images, but as the megapixels of Nexus 6p is higher. Therefore, I would prefer to go with Nexus 6P.
Last but not the least is Operating system. Apple iPhone 6s has a latest operating system of iOS. It is the best and the latest software of apple. Upgradation to UN touched software is also available. The device has a chipset of Apple A9 accompanied with dual core 1.84 GHz twister.

The device has a chipset of QUALCOMM MSM8994 snapdragon 810 accompanied with quad core 1.55 GHz Cortex A53 & quad core 2.0 GHz cortex A57. Both the devices are fast and have the best chipset. But if you really want a fast device, then I must say nothing better than Apple.
In all both the devices has latest features and liked by the user. It really depend what is your need and what to do want . if you looking for a device with best camera then I must say apple is best but if you look according to megapixils tthen undoubtedly nexus must be the preference .
