    Default Apple's iPhone 6 Plus and Google's Nexus 6 Bear an Uncanny Resemblance


    TechCrunch has recently compared Apple’s iPhone 6 Plus to Google’s new Nexus 6 device. They provided a picture of the two side by side, and if you’re looking at it now- you’d notice something quite similar between the two. The two smartphones almost look identical. However, Google’s Nexus 6 is slightly larger, as its display space is 6.22-inches compared to Apple’s 6 Plus device. The Nexus 6 is about 6mm taller, 3mm thicker, and 5mm wider than the iPhone.

    According to TechCrunch, the two devices also feel very similar when you’re holding them. TechCrunch stated:

    Close your eyes, and you’d probably have a hard time figuring out which is which without poking around to find the buttons.
    One thing the Nexus does not have however, is the incorporation of Touch ID. The Nexus has a more stretched out screen as the hardware button is a small horizontal button with the home, back, and menu buttons incorporated into the software as opposed to the round one Apple is known for and uses.

    What do you think of the new Google Nexus 6? Let us know in the comments below.

    I think comparing the two is stupid. Both offer totally different user experiences.

    They may look similar, but compared to the iPhone the Nexus is really fat (10mm). Nothing you want or you can carry in your pockets anymore.

    I don't care so much about the physical appearance. Most smartphones look really nice. I don't care who copied who. It's all about the OS. I prefer iOS over Android any day.

    Umm..they have been copying Apple since the first iPhone. Nothing is going to change moving forward.

    I so agree.

    Especially all smart-phones. They're all ugly and look just like an iPhone6/5/4/3/.. or anyone else's phone. If it's about looks and carrying them around, they all are pretty bad contenders. Flip-phones were the best form-factor , especially the small ones.

    Uncanny to whom? Are they suffering from myopia and looking at the phone from a mile away?
    I am on 6+ with iOS 8.0, glitchy as hell.
    Keyboard disappears the home screen disappear when flipped...
    iOS is not looking so well right now, hope this 8.1 fixes these glitches.

    What ever genius came up with this line is super duper awesome! If you close your eyes ALL phones look alike. My god who the hell comes up with this crap?

    Sorry but trying to say they look alike is a real stretch..... Yes they're both square, yes they're both flat, yes they'er both a phone. GET OVER IT ALL READY!!!

    There's only so many ways you can make a flat, rectangular touchscreen device.

    Couldn't agree more.

    But I wish the Pangu team were more thoughtful. Evad3rs seems much more professional to me. Pangu seems to prefer being first rather than best. And they did steal ideas they weren't supposed to. I'm concerned that in their haste, they'll end up ruining jailbreaking for everyone.
