Nexus 6 vs Nexus 5 : Display

Display is another factor which I would focus on to bring in a competition between the Google Nexus 6 and Google Nexus 5. Talking about the Display, as the price of the phone is not one factor which would enable us know which phone is better, the Display also can’t help us decide which phone is better. Some people prefer a Larger display, some prefer a smaller one and some prefer a medium-sized display.

On the other hand the Google Nexus 5 comes with a 4.95 Full HD IPS display of resolution 1080 x 1920 resolution having 445 ppi density.
