joonius, 20 Feb 2015"Turbo charge" is kind of also available with Samsung devices. I know the S5 takes a... more2-4 hours is a big interval, be more specific?
Nexus 5 on lollipop also takes 2.5 hours for 0-80
AFAIK nexus 6 gets 0-60 in 20 minutes.
Galaxy series doesn't have as large a community as nexus devices.
All the Samsung's I have owned start declining terribly in performance after 6 months of use at max. Maybe that's an issue with exynos or something, but no one can deny that touchwiz is part of the problem.
What shortcomings does nexus 6 have?
PS: in India the 32gb nexus 6 is about a 100$ cheaper than note 4
THE-DEVIL, 20 Feb 2015If nexus 6 was put to same display Nits, it's batterylife would get half of what it got. No... moreDude you really need to use some good custom ROMs then. Also I would rather have faster updates and turbo charging rather than a device that starts lagging terribly with every update and has a better battery life. It would make sense to buy a note 4 if your job requires a lot of field work and/or you really need the S pen features. All I'm saying is that for most people who don't want to just upgrade every six months, nexus 6 is a better phone.

No amount of shitty custom kernel is going to improve that batterylife. I had nexus 5, so I know a lot about the custom kernel, ROMs etc., I also know most of them are buggy and need to keep flushing every week to come to a usuable state. A phone should work out of box, not like this non-sense.
Field of view on Samsung devices is TOO SMALL now with the MP count so high.
I have to back way up to fit people into a shot using full resolution.

Galaxy line also has one of the largest communities for modifications...
Nexus got totally served on this comparison. And this time, the price can't even justify the short comings.
THE-DEVIL, 20 Feb 2015Note 4 brightness at 50% - 291 Nits Nexus 6 brightness at 50% - 149 Nits Still Note 4 39% ... moreHave fun when your touchwiz starts lagging. Also turbo charging in nexus 6 makes battery life much less of a problem. Then the dev support with custom kernels and ROMs is another way to improve battery life.
