Re: deathmatch or who cares?
Yeah, but this is a comparison of two large screen phones. Don't comment if you don't like them, I could say that I don't like rectangles but that wouldn't really be relevant either.

Re: Have you ever even considered video when you compared the cameras...?!?!
Plus the Nexus 6 produces RAW photo images while ios devices do not. This was completely ignored in the cameras review section and yet a HUGE advantage for the Nexus device.

Re: deathmatch or who cares?
Bentgate is an iphone 6 plus issue because of its build and not a Nexus 6 issue. Try not to be too general with such comments.

Re: Finger Print Sensor
And the Nexus allows unlocking via close proximity to specified bloothtooth devices such as fitness bands and smart watches which ios 8 has not. I've done the finger print sensor thing and found it a minor convenience. Certainly far from a major device. Have it on my samsung tablet as well but no biggie.

Re: deathmatch or who cares?
For me an essential part of cell phone's definition is its portability. I think larger phones are not easy to carry. Fitting these large screen phones in jeans pocket and pulling them out when needed is a task itself. Why not buy something with which you are comfortable with ? No to large phone screens in my case .

Finger Print Sensor
Apple's Touch ID sensor is the best in the business. And with iOS 8, it doesn't just let you easily secure your phone – it also plays nicely with third-party apps. Password managers are an especially great fit for the sensor. No finger sensor in Nexus 6, conventiona locking, unlocking and password protection.

RAM
iPhone 6 plus has 1 GB RAM while nexus 6 has 3 GB RAM. I count this as a major difference too. Which one is the winner in this case ?

Re: deathmatch or who cares?
That is a good point, not only is it uncomfortable to fit one of these large phones into a pocket but I have heard of stories in which a large phone has bent while in a jean pocket, resulting in a costly replacement for the user. The backpack idea is good, but it is difficult to carry a backpack everywhere.

Have you ever even considered video when you compared the cameras...?!?!
The quality of stills is only half of the camera story. The other half is video, and it's here where the Nexus 6 camera truly shines. Try Chromecasting (or AirPlaying) an iPhone video to a 4K UHDTV and you'll see why: 8MP cameras don't pack enough pixels to shoot 4K video (the equivalent of an 8.3MP still). 13MP cameras, like the one in the Nexus 6, however, do indeed pack in enough pixels to record such videos. Also, it's only in low-light conditions that any difference in camera quality is noticed at all. AndroidHeadlines, if I'm not mistaken, actually did a side-by-side comparison of Nexus 6 photos and iPhone 6 Plus photos... with minimal, if any, difference in camera quality, the most minimal being in the case of those pics taken in bright sunlight (which we have plenty of here in SoCal IMHO).
