If 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.
