I compared V10 to my Note 4 recently in Best Buy. The former feels much bulkier with no obvious advantage over the latter.
It is funny that the s-pen isn't mentioned. The camera differences and chipset performance differences would be barely noticeable under average normal usage of the 3 phones.
The note 5 wins in a place that is noticeable the most, battery.
The s-pen, made it easier to vote the note5 over the others. Using big phones is no longer appealing to me but the s-pen adds sense to it.
The v10 with the small always on screen adds a little sense to the big screen but the s-pen's functionality is out of their league.
The Truth is the average user doesn't care about all the nitty-gritty of nexus's advantage over other oems smartphones. Would I simply choose the nexus 6p over the s6 because of the newer OS version, assuming I didn't know anything else about the phones, absolutely not.
Android has over tons of advantages over ios but the average consumer doesn't care about the nitty-gritty, it's just stress!
