Gaming battle: Samsung Galaxy S6 vs Motorola Nexus 6 – how the powerful flagships handle the latest games

model-nexus-6-vs-galaxy-s6If you have read our Nexus 6 review, you’re already aware that although it’s equipped with the super powerful Snapdragon 805 SoC, there is still something to be desired from the frames per second during gameplay. Actually, this is precisely what mobile gamers should pay attention to, instead of the synthetic benchmark results.

We’re going to test the actual graphics performance of Samsung Galaxy S6 and Motorola Nexus 6 with four GPU demanding games – Asphalt 8, Brothers in Arms 3, Overkill 3 and Despicable Me: Minion Rush.

Overkill 3 has great graphics but presented no problem for the new Exynos 7420, which ran the game at 29 fps – a score identical to Nexus 6. Brothers in Arms turned out to be the most demanding game in our test – the average framerate was only 23 fps for Galaxy S6 and 24 fps for Nexus 6.
