The Nexus 6 is now an inevitable release in the future, with only the release date in question. However, the main concern for the device isn’t when it’s going to release, but how big is it really. We know it has a 5.9-inch display, which for many sounds far too big, but how does that shape up to some of the devices we already know, particularly the Nexus 5, it’s soon-to-be predecessor? Thanks to Canoopsy, we have a great video comparing the sizes of different flagship devices to the Nexus 6, in particular a Nexus 6 vs Nexus 5 size comparison which really shows the Nexus 6′s size difference. Check it out below:
While it was always going to be much bigger than the Nexus 5, some of the other comparisons of the Nexus 6 show some interesting results. In particular, I was surprised to see that the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is almost exactly the same size as the Nexus 6 – with a 5.7-inch display, it clearly makes less efficient use of its front side real-estate with the Nexus 6 employing some slim bezels to help keep the size down. There’s not all that much to be surprised about here - it’s going to be a big phone - even if some of the comparisons are surprising, but it’s nice that we can see them compared as accurately as possible.
