Until now, Apple stood tranquil on its throne, waving and smiling ironically at its rivals, because there was no smartphone capable of competing with its latest iPhone. But things have changed in 2016, because most of the manufacturers started using 64bit processors, much more powerful, and Samsung brought a premium device which is not only a beast, but it has an improved aspect. So, forget about the Galaxy S5 and its dotted pattern. The Galaxy S6 and the S6 version are the best smartphones that will make any iPhone owner bite his nails.
Here are the reasons why the Apple fans will be jealous of the Galaxy S6 owners.
A new design
Samsung learned from its mistakes and ditched the dotted pattern in favor of glossy plastic and metal, combined with Corning Gorilla Glass 4 for protection against scratches. The new Galaxy S6 and the S6 Edge have a luxurious design, they’re sturdier and come in four color variants (White Pearl, Black Sapphire, Gold Platinum and Blue Topaz) to satisfy pretentious customers. The iPhone 6 Plus is using Gorilla Glass 3 and has an aluminum casing available in three color options: Space Gray, Silver and Gold. The Galaxy S6 Edge has a screen curved on both sides, and you can take advantage of those “peripheral” portions.
Samsung built the Exynos SoC processor using 40nm technology, and backed it with the latest 3GB LPDDR4 RAM, which gives double speed compared to LPDDR3 RAM. Also, LPDDR4 offers double bandwidth and it’s 10 percent more energy efficient, consuming 2/3rd less power compared to LPDDR1 RAM and 1/3rd less power compared to LPDDR3 RAM. The iPhone 6 Plus has an Apple A8 processor built on 20nm architecture and has 1GB LPDDR3 RAM.
Samsung retained the resolution of 16MP, but added a 5Mp camera on the front. The main shooter has F1.9 aperture lenses, smart optical image stabilization, auto real-time HDR, IR Detect White Balance and the high resolution sensors provide better images taken in dark environments. The iPhone 6 Plus has a camera with half of the resolution, but it offers optical image stabilization, dual-LED flash and has a sensor size of 1/3inch. According to a Reddit user who tested both phones in low light conditions, the Galaxy S6 managed to take crispier images with a great amount of colors and the brightness levels were clearly better.
WiFi charging and faster charging
Both of the new Samsung smartphones feature with built-in wireless charging capability and they work with any wireless pad that supports WPC and PMA standards. Also, the devices can be charged 1.5 times faster, and can provide four hours of usage if you let them charge for ten minutes. To charge an iPhone, you have to wait two hours, and also, there is no WiFi wireless charging.
Samsung introduced the new payment system named Samsung Pay, which works with NFC free stripe card readers and requires your fingerprint scan whenever you make a payment. Apple Pay is only a NFC-based system.
Who do you think will win between Samsung Galaxy S6 and iPhone 6 Plus? And why, please try to be genuine about it, not talking from a fanboy point of view.
