Nexus 5X vs iPhone 6s: Software
We're not going to waste time comparing Android to iOS, because we all know that's worthless. Everyone has a preference, or some just want the latest of whatever is available. Many are locked into Apple's ecosystem of apps and won't wander off, but if you do, the Nexus 5X is the purest and best of Android. Well, aside from the aluminum Nexus 6P.
With iOS 9 the iPhone 6s has tons of new features, plenty of improvements, and a brand new 3D Touch feature unlike anything we've ever seen. The phone can feel how hard a user is pushing. Allowing light taps on the screen to show previews of an app, setting, or email, and a deep (hard 3D press) will go from the preview, to opening the app. This allows for quick launching certain aspects of apps, like instantly launching the front camera when hitting the camera button, rather than doing it after, multi-touch controls like we've never seen before and more. Reviews all around the web are praising 3D Touch, and you'll want to experience it for yourself.
iOS 9 also has live photos, a better camera software, Apple Pay mobile payments and much more. Again, everyone is different, but these are just a few of many points you should know about.
How Apple changed touch with 3D touch, Google's revolutionized multi-tasking with Android 6.0 Marshmallow and a new feature called Google Now on Tap, debuting on the Nexus 5X and 6P. Long-pressing the home button while doing anything from reading an email, texting a friend, using WhatsApp or messaging with Facebook will read and analyze what's on the screen, and find relative content. A user can lookup a movie, see the reviews, watch a preview or trailer, buy movie tickets with an app installed and more all without ever leaving the email, conversation, or message thread. Just hit back and you're right where you left off. It's a powerful new search and multi-task feature that Android 6.0 Marshmallow users are going to love.
Here's a video of Android 6.0 Marshmallow and Google Now on Tap, but it's just a small example of many possibilities it brings to the table. Both of these phones run the latest and greatest mobile OS versions in the world, are packed full of features, and it's up to you to decide which to buy.
Obviously there is much more to the software than these few points, but Android vs iOS could be an entire article in itself. Most know what they offer, so choose what's best for your needs.
