The above table just highlights the hardware specification comparisons, but all of the three are different in some ways. The Nexus 6p and the NOTE 5 are more or less similar in terms of software base and hence the hardware comparison between the both will make sense in real time but the Apple iPhone 6s is entirely running on different platform.
Apart from the heterogeneous software base, some more clear differences on their hardware specifications are the system memory size (RAM), battery capacity and the display size. On top of everything the Nexus 6p is priced only at around Rs. 45000, which is far better than any of the other flagship phones in comparison. The NOTE 5 is still unique because of the Stylus Pen and all the features that comes with. Even if you will keep the Stylus feature aside and see, I am sure that you cannot ignore the Nexus 6p and its stand.

Finally if you see the Nexus 6p in a fair comparison, it will be the only winner at this point of time in the smartphone market. Please do write your thoughts on the Google Nexus 6p and its stand against other flagships.
