3D gaming gets pretty impressive as the octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor powers the Nexus 6P. It runs Android Marshmallow OS, upgradable to Nougat.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge specs review: Design, software and hardware
Unlike the Nexus 6P, Galaxy S7 Edge design is sleeker, more elegant and much lighter. The 5.5 inch phone has 76.1% screen-to-body ratio. It is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass for the front and back panel.
The color production is impressively sharp and vivid with 1440 x 2560 pixels resolution and 534 ppi pixel density. Running on Android Marshmallow, Samsung pairs quad-core Snapdragon 820 with 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal memory. Dedicated slot is available for memory expansion.
Samsung squeezes a lot of features for its 12 MP rear camera. There is LED flash, phase detection autofocus and OIS to record a smooth 4K video without getting blurred. There is also dual video recording mode and what's great about the auto HDR mode is that it's also featured in its 5MP front camera. Galaxy S7 Edge gets 3,600 mAh battery with fast charging and wireless charging features.
