Apple iPhone 6s vs Samsung Galaxy S6

Comparing mobile phones isn’t easy because so many of is put emotional values onto them. Everyone’s listened to someone say “I’ve always had an iPhone” or something similar. For those guys the thought of changing to anything else doesn’t cross their mind. More open minded people though really should consider the Apple iPhone 6s vs Samsung Galaxy S6.


As the Galaxy Note 4 isn’t coming to the UK, these two phones are the only ones competing with one another for the market’s attention. Comparisons between the two are easy to make. Let’s start with the display size. The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ has a 5.7 inch AMOLED screen. The fact that it curves to the sides is why it’s been given the “Edge” name. Screen resolution is 2560 x 1440 which gives it a pixel density of 518ppi. The equivalent iPhone, the iPhone 6s Plus, has a smaller display at 5.5 inches. LED rather than AMOLED technology and a 1920 x 1080 resolution. That equates to 401ppi. Basically on specs alone, the Samsung had the Apple beaten hands down.


The way we interface with our phones really makes a difference to our experience with them and how much we fall in love with the devices. Both the iPhone and the Galaxy S6 have innovation here. The iPhone’s “3D Touch” system is an updated version of Apple’s “Force Touch” found on the latest MacBooks. With this technology the pressure you apply when you touch the screen affects the output you get. Applying a little pressure to a compatible area of the display allows you to “peek” inside the app. This is great for checking the contents of an Email without having to open up the Mail app. With the Galaxy S6 there’s nothing as innovative but the curves screen edges give you access to some of the phone’s functions. This is supposed to save you a bit of time but the jury’s out on whether it does or whether this is just a gimmick to help sell the device.

The verdict

Users ultimately decide which one they prefer but we believe that the Samsung S6 has the iPhone beaten in more than enough ways to call it the winner of this contest.
