Google Nexus 6 vs HTC One M8: A Quick Comparison

Nexus 6 and HTC One M8 is probably the two best android smartphones in the market at present. Thus making a comparison between the two best is not just tough, it is really hard. Nexus 6 is the extension of the flagship series of Google and on the other hand HTC One M8 is one of the much appreciated devices from HTC.google-nexus-6-vs-htc-one-m8

Speaking of configuration and performance, both the devices outclass majority of the well known smartphone models by a fair margin, but how do these devices fare against each other?

Nexus 6 and HTC One M8: main specs compared


Lets us admit it straight away that the design and the looks around a smartphone is one of the first things that comes to our notice whenever we are around them. In majority of the cases, the decision to buy a device gets a bit biased based on the look of it. In this regard, I have a strong belief that HTC One M8 is probably better. I am certainly not referring to Nexus 6 as Ugly but it is somewhat similar to Nexus 5. On the other hand, HTC One M8 has a certain look of elegance around it!


The comparison of the display of Nexus 6 and HTC One M8 is yet again very difficult. M8 comes with a 5 inch 1920 x 1080, 441ppi display, which is probably the right combination as well. Google’s Nexus 6 has a 6 inch 2560 x 1440 493ppi display with sharper images that HTC One M8. With a larger screen and better display Nexus 6 pleases the eye, but it also puts quite a bit of pressure on the battery as well.


This is where Google Nexus is the outright winner with things to boast about. Google Nexus comes with a 2.7GHz Adreno 420 Quad-core Snapdragon 805 processors, whereas HTC One M8 is just a step behind with 2.3GHz Adreno 330 Quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor.


Although this is my personal thought, but I think that many will accept that matching the quality of Camera and its specifications is really difficult. By a long way, HTC One M8 has the best camera in the market with Ultrapixel rear snapper with a powerful secondary camera of 5 megapixel. This certainly does not mean that Nexus 6 is anything less. Google’s flagship device comes with a 13 megapixel primary camera, which can also stun you with exquisite photography. What lacks here is the secondary camera, which is just 2 megapixel but still manages good selfies.

I am personally a big fan of HTC smartphones, but Google’s Nexus 6 is nothing too less. In addition, Nexus 6 will have pre-installed Android Lollipop version. One will have to upgrade HTC One M8 separately to Android L. This is to be precise the advantage that Nexus has over all other smartphones. Apart from this, nothing too specific to point out, which certainly makes the choice much more difficult. I will leave the difficult part for you!
