Nexus 6P vs LG G4: Software

Nexus 6P vs LG G4: Software

Another area of importance is software. The Nexus 6P runs the latest version of pure Android 6.0 Marshmallow right from Google, and will get quick software and security updates. LG though, runs Android 5.1 Lollipop, and covers it with a somewhat decent but slowly improving interface or overlay. A skin over Android, similar to what Samsung does with TouchWiz, The LG G4 will see Android 6.0 Marshmallow, likely around Christmas time, but it won't be stock Android.

LG has some fancy features though. An IR sensor for a remote control to operate household things like the TV or even an AC unit. Multi-window mode for running two apps at the same time, and neat options to instantly launch the camera by double tapping volume down on the back of the phone. You can also double tap the screen to wake it up, which is one of our favorite LG G4 features.

It's hard to talk about software, as everyone changes it these days, aside from Motorola. Those who want a true Android experience will go with the Nexus 6P, but if you'd like some customization and a slightly different look, LG has a decent interface over stock Android 5.1 Lollipop that's worth considering. The Nexus 6P will always have the latest version of Android a goof 3-4 months earlier, if that matters to you.

    No wireless charging. Who cares? A plug-in charger out performs a wireless charger any day.
