iPhone 6 Plus Vs Galaxy S6 Edge Mobile Phones Comparison, Reviews, Specs and Features – The Battle of Sixes
The Apple iPhone 6 Plus is one of the best and wonderful phablet in the world. Although if you precisely compare it to its rival Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge you’ll find out much more differences in terms of technology and features they may have. For example; there are some restrictions in sharing files via Bluetooth to other devices from iPhone 6 as well as, it has a limited memory storage of 16GB, 32GB or 64GB and a built-in battery. But still, there are so many other great benefits that may compel you to get an iPhone; and there is no excuse that Apple uses the world’s best technology. Here we’ll discuss some key features and specifications of Apple’s iPhone 6 Plus versus Samsung’s Galaxy S6.
Big Screen Phones:
The time has gone when people loved the small mobile phones, with small screens now 5.5” inches looks a great jump for Apple users; after all you’ll have a great time enjoying your favorite HD songs and high-definition mobile games.
Well, in terms of design and specifications there isn’t much difference between Apple iPhone 6 plus and iPhone 6 except the screen size.
The iPhone 6 Plus has not only brought some new features but incorporates a full HD Display and a big body. It supports A8 chip with 64-bit architecture processor claiming the world’s most highly advanced and super fast smartphone processor; 1GB of RAM, 8 megapixel rear camera and M8 motion coprocessor.
iPhone 6 Plus’s Storage/Memory Capacity
The iPhone 6 Plus comes in 3 different memory versions, 16GB, 64GB and 128GB. So it is important to choose smartly what version suits you, as there is no micro SD slot. But Apple company has also introduced a 128GB of big space for those fans who needs more space for their favorite and memorable videos collection. That makes it more pricey than its rival phablets Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy S6 Edge.
For the 1st time Apple shows FullHD video resolution in its latest iPhone 6 Plus phablet as well as the introduction of OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) feature; to the camera makes it a perfect and all in-one mobile phone in the competitive market around the globe. Out of all Apple 6 plus’s aluminum unibody design with rounded corners & sides are very impressive and awesome. It is too light despite it is all metal body. Even big hands can’t take the iPhone 6 plus in one hand. The Plus is big enough for one-handed use.
iPhone 6 Plus Battery Life and Autonomy
When it comes to battery life so Apple made it quite different for the iPhone 6 Plus; you can play games, listen to the music and videos on Youtube, make 2 or more hours of voice calls; Facebook, Twitter, Whatsup and lots of photography all can be done only in a single charge. The call quality is very excellent, you will never face a drop. And the network signal strength is also much powerful compared to iPhone 5s.
There are some points we may discuss here about charging your iPhone 6 plus battery; if you use a powerful charger of iPad Air then definitely you will fill up the battery faster compared to its normal charger. The more milli Amps per hour you supply to the battery the faster it will get charged and the fewer milli Amps per hour you supply the longer time it may take to fill up the iPhone 6 battery; hence increasing your battery life.
Apple iPhone 6 Plus has a very nice Touch ID fingerprint sensor for security reasons similar to Apple iPhone 5s. It has a screen pixel density of 401 ppi (pixels per inch); with 1080p Full HD display resolution and 16:9 standard aspect ratio. Another interesting feature is that it supports landscape photography mode as well; and for some mobile apps even it split-screen in landscape mode.
What is Apple’s IPS LCD Panel Technology?
Apple company incorporated IPS Panel technology in its iPhone 6 Plus screen for best picture viewing angles. It offers natural colors, you can tilt it up to 180 degrees and you won’t see any change to the image color and quality; you will notice if the image is printed on top of the screen from any direction. The screen brightness level is so high that you can use it in direct sunlight as well.
IPS means In-Plane Switching, it is a LCD technology first introduced in the year 1996 by Japanese most famous brand Hitachi.
It was developed to correct the poor viewing angles and screen color problems. Great color contrast also helps the overall picture quality. One of the iPhone 6s Plus’s great and innovative features in terms of screen display is its “3D Touch display” technology. It works on “Pressure Sensitive Force Touch” technology therefore, it interacts as a 3rd level medium among a tap, normal press and a deeper one.
As we discussed above that Apple uses IPS LCD in their phones and tablets because it gives you natural vivid colors and gorgeous sharpness. It has a smart and intelligent display than any other smart phones in the line. From the below image you will notice the real difference between a full high-definition video format and a 4K video format resolutions. However nowadays 4K Tvs are very expensive and they are not affordable for everyone therefore; 1920 x 1080p Full HD videos are more popular and less-expensive and almost all digital devices offer and support this video resolution.
What is Apple’s Retina Display?
Apple’s Retina Display is a slim LCD Display that is made by squeezing a high pixel density of 1080 x 1920 pixels into 5.5 inches screen that offers ~ 401 ppi (pixels per inch). It is really a super high resolution screen by Apple; that delivers very clearer display than ever. It is one of the breakthrough technology of Apple which is used in iPhone 6 Plus.
The super high quality glossy panels of aluminosilicate and gorilla glass is used in iPhone 6 Plus smartphone; it is a type of glass which are used in the wind screens of choppers and bullet trains.
Not just a bigger display, rather a better display.
The size of the new, higher-resolution Retina HD Displays on iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus may be the first thing you notice. But what you experience is so much more. With innovations that deliver higher contrast, dual-domain pixels for more accurate colour at wider viewing angles, and an improved polariser, these are the thinnest, most advanced Multi-Touch displays we’ve ever made.
Chemically it is proven to be 20 times stiffer and 30 times harder than plastic material. This glass is scratch resistant and at the same time it is also ultra-durable. The large 5.5 inches screen’s contrast is manufactured bright enough to reflect excessive sunlight during a hot summer day; and making it one of the best mobile phone you can use in sunny days as well. The display got accurate colors, intelligent viewing angles and the best brightness levels. That is how it has the most accurate and advanced mobile displays on the market.
iPhone 6 Plus’s Wi-Fi and 3G Connectivity
You can experience the real speed of mobile internet connectivity from the new LTE connection though; you can get connected to a faster 150Mbps of internet connection. Overall all Apple iPhones support a high Wi-Fi connectivity. The iPhone 6 Plus has a built-in 2,915mAh lithium-ion battery pack, quite enough to talk for hours and browse your favorite websites for 10 hours as well as; it gives you a continuous 10 hours of a standard video playback.
It is better to use your iPhone 6 Plus with iOS 8 by default; as it is the best mobile operating system than the new released iOS 9 or iOS 10. If you upgrade it to iOS 9 or iOS 10, then you won’t be able to experience the great performance of your phone. It will definitely affect your phone’s overall performance including talk time, speed etc.
So even don’t try to upgrade your apps as far as it works fine just don’t upgrade any app. One of the best feature of iPhone mobiles are their touch sensors; especially it offers the world’s super typing experience. When you text someone or just type something you will love the way it types the words and letters, so sharp and brilliant. In other words, it is a very intelligent mobile phone in the market.
iPhone 6 Plus Camera Secret Revealed
Apple uses Sony corporation Carl Zeiss lens for its built-in iPhone cameras. And Sony Carl Zeiss lens is known as one of the world’s top optical lens. That is the case when you capture the images with an iPhone mobile the result is the best with rich colors; in-depth details and low picture noise. You can manually set different exposure like a semi-pro digital camera.
Although, it offers 8 megapixel but it has a wider aperture i.e; f/2.2, that allows more lights to enter through the lens. The resolution of an image and the real factor behind a clear and sharp image does not count only because of high megapixels in a camera; but there are other major factors like the lens, image sensor size, image processor, Auto focusing; light metering and no. of f/apertures responsible for super quality and outstanding images.
Big image sensor is the best
Out of all the image sensor size matters the most, take an example of HTC one’s mobile with 4 MP camera; you don’t believe it that its image quality is superb than any other mobile phone in the market. Proper lighting is the main thing in terms of photography when you have sufficient light you will definitely get ultra sharp images. Therefore;
“Big sensors with small number of megapixels absorb enough light in order to produce the best result than small sensors with huge number of megapixels.”
The iPhone 6 Plus is capable of shooting Full HD 1080p video with a slow motion mode of 240 frames per second. Contrary to this, Samsung Galaxy S6 can only captures slow motion video at 120 frames per second. Samsung is increasing screen resolution so quickly without noticing the fact that only having more pixels don’t cover up all the things rather it results in poor High Definition video quality if true processor capabilities and architecture not implemented.
Please see the below image for further details:
As we seen from the above image the HTC image sensor size is very big 4 micron-pixels than the rest;
it means the big image sensor or ccd a phone camera may have the more light rays it absorb resulting in high resolution photo shots; and the small size sensor it may have, less lights absorb resulting in poor or low quality photos.
So iPhone 6 has a medium size sensor of 2 micron pixels big enough for high quality great shots.
One thing we may add here is that sensor size is only one factor for a great shot there are still other factors responsible for outstanding shots. Apple’s iPhone mobile phones not only offer average size sensors but they also offer good light balance, wide aperture, color saturation; and high quality Sony’s Carl Zeiss lenses for stunning photo-shots.
Please see below the real picture quality difference in daylight;
iPhone 6 Plus’s Graphic and Gaming performance is stunning!
Generally iPhone 6 plus is the most responsive phone in the market; with A8 chip Apple is leading the smartphone market worldwide a place where other brands are still struggling. If we talk of gaming in iPhone 6 Plus, so the performance is outstanding. You can play heavy graphic games like Shadowgun and Infinity Blade even some new games like Plunder Pirates etc. The graphics are stunning you will definitely enjoy the game smoothly, no crashes no flickers. While on the other hand, Samsung Galaxy S6 delivers poor graphics performance.
You can feel it as you’re playing a game on a PlayStation or X-box. Both Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge and Apple iPhone 6 Plus are great. But there is a problem with Galaxy S6 while gaming for around 30 minutes it gets very hot at the back. With some heavy multi-tasking temperature inside the phone rises to great extend. Although the iPhone 6 also gets hotter than usual but not so much.
About iPhone High-Tech A8/A9 processing chips
Although Galaxy S6 has 8-core processors as well as a high resolution display still it can’t beat iPhone 6’s in GPU rich apps and games. Because Samsung makes low and poor quality engineering choices when it comes to chip architecture and other related aspects.
Almost all new high graphic games and apps first launch by Apple; and then later they are followed by Android only when they get much popularity in App Store.
Samsung is always runs ads on its Exynos 7 octa-core chip by making a lot of people fool into thinking that the number of cores is something good for the power.
“In other sense it is like calling a truck or a lorry as four wheel drive while it only powers 2 wheels at once”
On the other hand Apple uses its Cyclone A8 chip that uses fewer cores and power as well as; it offers more precise management for better performance. In other words, iPhone 6 Plus has console-quality graphics.
The iPhone 6 Plus is made of Apple A8 system-on-chip (SoC) 64-bit Architecture ARM based system chipset. It really deserves some attention.
The A8 chipset is extremely efficient, It is made by a new 20nm process; means tiny parts, less heat and less battery consumption.
Thanks to the latest engineering of the chip by Apple and the technical details they shared. Apple’s A8 chip packs a Dual-Core means 2 cores of 64-bit Cyclone processors are clocked at 1.4GHz of speed; that is 100MHz faster compared to the processor of A7 which was used in iPhone 5s. But at the same time it requires low power to run. It is 50% faster in CPU (Central Processing Units) tasks and 84% faster on the Graphic Processing Units GPU.
Also it is fifty percent more efficient than A7. It includes almost 2 billion transistors despite doubling the transistors count its die size still remain 15% smaller than the A7 chip. Although Apple used dual-core processors in it but still it is more efficient and faster than its rival Samsung’s quad-core or octa-core processors.
The reason behind these all is that there is something interesting and very strange going on in the world of smart phones. Today when every mobile manufacturer or company is talking about 4 or 8-core processors phones; still Apple incorporated a simple dual-core processor in the iPhone 6 plus and 6.
You think just two cores for one of the world’s top and most expensive phone! When you hear of Xiaomi RedMi Note costs almost less than $150 which has Quad-Core Processors,
Please see the following GPU graph for further explanation on this topic:
From the above graph it is clear that although iPhone 6 Plus is a Dual-Core phone with 1.4GHz clock speed and with 1GB Ram still it beats Samsung Galaxy S6 in OpenGL ES 3.0 and OpenGL ES 2.0;
The Apple iPhone has the best Graphics chip as well as; its frame rate is very high compared to its competitors.
What is the secret behind these all?
Do you think iOS is quite light that can be easily accessed with a Dual-Core processor and Anroid KitKat or Lollipop needs more cores ? The answer is No.
The real fact is that the Dual-Core processor which is used in the iPhone 6 Plus and 6 is the world’s most advanced smartphone processor. The Apple A8 chip which has only 2 cores that runs at 1.4GHz; is very efficient and fast than that of Qualcomm Snapdragon 805, which is considered the fastest Anroid mobile phone processor in the world. Although, Snapdragon 805 chip has 4 cores and runs at 2.7GHz.
The reason why Apple’s two core processor beats all of them with 4 or 8-cores processors is because Apple used a right architecture in designing its processing chips. Contrary, to this Samsung, Huawei mobile or other major smart phone brands are just counting the number of cores in their chips. To further understand this we may brief this a little bit here;
The processing power of a mobile or desktop chip doesn’t only depend on Core Count and the Clock Speed; there are a lot of other factors. The main aspect is the latency, memory bandwidth and the ability to execute threads in a more efficient and better way. That is the instruction per cycle (IPC) a processor can execute.
Since IPC depends on many factors and it is not necessary that a high clock speed and more cores tends to a better IPC. Apple was launched its own processor with A5 in the year 2011, in this belief that no other company was going on the right path. So from then it worked on IPC. So if you see it from marketing perspective the number of cores sounds more attractive and popular than the IPC we are talking about. Since that time MediaTekand Qualcomm were working on increasing the number of cores in processors although it was not necessary for the best performance of mobile phones.
While Apple’s rivals have chosen the way of increasing core counts; Apple started on maximizing the memory bandwidth. It is not an easy task to build processors like that. So, here we will explain how fast is the Apple’s A8 processor than that of Samsung Galaxy Note 4’s Snapdragon 805 as well as; the HTC’s Snapdragon 615 according to GeekBench.
As you see from the above image that the Snapdragon 805 is the fastest of all in multi-core processing but that doesn’t mean it will work in real life.
There are a lot of mobile apps which aren’t work on multiple-cores, rather they work more fast and efficiently on a single core chip. Therefore, iPhone 6 Plus is the fastest mobile phone than others in the world; as it works on single core technology.
Because it works on the same single core apps formula. If you remember the year 2006; When there were a big race in between Intel and AMD. Intel increased the speed of its desktop processors up to 3GHz; compared to AMD but it still lost the battle to AMD processors in terms of performance because of low IPC.
So this is what happening with mobile processors nowadays. In terms of under-lying technology, processors used in Anroid phones are just made for marketing purposes and they are inefficient in performance. While on the other hand Apple’s A8 chip beats the 4-core and even 8-core processors with its only 2-core with 1.4GHz of speed. It also improved the battery life in all Apple products.
Samsung or other Anroid phones can only beat Apple if they change their processors making policy as well as; improve the chip architecture inside the processors otherwise Apple will always lead them in terms of performance. Not all cores are created equal so don’t try to buy a smart phone that is powered with more cores. One of the most beautiful feature in all iPhone phones we liked is the click sound; when you connect the cable and the power or volume control plus minus buttons it just produces a solid click sound.
Sound and audio Quality
The sound quality of both smartphones are great; it is not only loud but at the same time clear too. The speakers are built at the base of the phone, next to the microphone. Both devices have 3.5mm headphone jack option. The call and audio quality is the best, no call drops in both mobile phones.
