Ten Differences Between an iPhone 6 and a Nexus 6


Partnership in business is a marriage of thoughts, which delivers offspring that have the ability to awe. When Google partnered with original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in the mobile business, the result was the Nexus range, which in its sixth series has been stamped with the approvals of the meanest critics, too. Apple, on the other hand is believed to be a bachelor, though its offspring comes from its own ingenuity. The iPhone was one among the many of its creations. And it just proves that partnerships are not always necessary to create progenies who have the potential to keep the delight of wonder among millions around the world. Here are ten differences between Apple’s iPhone 6 and that of the Motorola-Google partnership, Nexus 6.
