Comparing the top phablets: The Nexus 6 vs Galaxy Note 4 vs iPhone 6 Plus 2014 is undoubtedly the year of the phablet.
Samsung started the trend years ago with its Galaxy Note, which was an experiment but quickly became one of their top sellers. Apple entered the ring this year with their iPhone 6 Plus, confirming that the "mass market" is finally ready for Apple to offer something without a tiny screen.

Most recently, Google released the Nexus 6, its first technical phablet, and the company's showcase for their latest Android operating system.

Each device offers strong performance, a massive screen, and a large price tag.

Check out the specs and key features of the year's most important phablets:

Yet............2 things 'CAN' actually be total crap..Amazing huh??

"Petard" huh......had to look that one up. Small bomb used blow up fortifications in the 16th Century. Kinda like the bomb in LOTR 2.

You must be an old person to shell out that antiquated terminology in a such a lame comparison.
