Google Pixel XL VS  Nexus 6P: camera phone battle

Before we start the battle of Google Pixel XL VS  Nexus 6P, we want to remind you that both Google phones come with various ROM versions. In this battle, we just take the biggest ROM (128GB) model of 2 handsets. So, let’s have a look at the processor of these phones. The latest Google flagship is powered by a quad-core SND 821 processor paired with 4GB RAM. On the other hand, Nexus 6P runs on an octa-core SND 810 processor along with 3GB RAM. With stronger chipset and bigger RAM, Pixel XL will offer you a smoother, better, and faster performance.

Since these handsets are both labeled by Google, their camera features are similar. They both have an 8MP selfie snapper with the aperture of f/2.4. They own a 12.3MP main camera with f/2.0, dual LED flash, 1/2.3″ sensor size, and 1.55µm pixel size. The core difference is that the primary camera of Pixel can record 4K videos with digital image stabilization (EIS). This feature is not added on Google 6P. This could probably be the reason why Pixel camera gets the highest scores (89) on DxOMark camera benchmark. Nexus 6P has 84 points.
