As the title says, take the new camera from the Nexus 5X and pit it against the best Apple has to offer with the iPhone 6S Plus. The iPhone 6S Plus has optical image stabilisation and the Nexus 5X omits this for super large 1.55 micron pixels. To see full size, click on photos.

The iPhone 6S Plus goes first on then the Nexus 5X. This is for all of the shots. The iPhone 6S shoots at f/2.2 ISO25, and a shutter speed of 1/110. The colours are very natural in this shot.
The Nexus 5X takes a good shot but the grass is a different colour.
The next shot by the iPhone 6S Plus is with the sun on top of the church roof in the clouds. f/2.2, ISO25, Shutter 1/2849
So let’s look at the Nexus 5X. Hard to believe the difference here. f/2.0. ISO 61 f/2236.
So iPhone 6S Plus again. The colours and exposure are more accurate than the Nexus 5X. The clouds aren’t over exposed by the iPhone either. ISO 25 and shutter 1/1832.
So next up the Nexus 5X. Even though it over exposed the sky and is more saturated, its a good shot.
iPhone 6S Plus again.
Next the Nexus 5X. The colours are not as natural as the iPhone. Same thoughts on exposure too.
Lastly, a street scene. iPhone 6S first. Notice the different field of view between the phones.
And now the Nexus 5X.
Obviously there is more to test, from the front cameras to video. But the above gives you a taste of how the Nexus 5X performs.
So what do you all think?
