Today we will be comparing two of the most popular Android phablets although being released over a year back – the Google Nexus 6P vs LG V10. Huawei built Nexus 6P sports a high-end metal body while the LG V10 is made up of stainless steel body, with both providing a premium look and feel to the users. The two phablets are almost similar in few areas and quite different from each other in most areas, so it should be a pretty interesting comparison.

The LG V10 is an upgrade over the LG G4 and provides a more premium build than the latter device. LG has made some considerate changes to the new device when compared to G4 while maintaining the core specs more or less the same. The new device makes a great choice for audiophiles who spend a lot of time listening to music on their smartphones. LG V10 has the same high quality 16 MP shooter from the G4 while providing new features for better functionality, also it comes with a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner which is not available on the previous device.

Winner - Nexus 6P

The Nexus 6P provides a few features that are not present on the LG V10 – such as the Samsung-built AMOLED QHD display. For better sound output the dual stereo speakers are positioned above and below the display. Out of the box it runs Android Marshmallow v6.0 (upgradable to Nougat v7.x) and guarantees fastest upgrades to the phone’s firmware in the future.

While on the other hand LG V10 includes a fingerprint sensor which can be paired with NFC for quicker online payments. It is positioned with Hi-Fi circuitry speakers with impressive sound quality on the bottom of the device. Also there are a wide range of colours to choose from for this device.

Coming to the final verdict of Nexus 6P vs LG V10 , it would be unfair to say that one device outperforms the other device as both provide impressive specs and the decision solely depends on the user. But considering having a full package phone, the choice should be GOOGLE’s NEXUS 6P as it has premium build, impressive hardware and also comes with guarantee of fastest availability of future android software updates.
