The new iPhone is already on the market and now is the time to look around and compare the new smartphones. This time we want to compare the technical characteristics of the iPhone 6 s with the Samsung Galaxy S 6, one of the biggest rivals of Apple has.
Throughout the following paragraphs we will compare the most important technical specifications of both devices. Picking a winner is an almost impossible task for the vast differences in their operating system, so we will discuss all the features and summarize the devices so it can be a personal decision for each user.
iPhone 6 s Compared Galaxy S 6
Both the Galaxy S 6 as iPhone 6 s are very well designed. Both use quality materials and are aesthetically beautiful. The iPhone 6 s is identical to its predecessor, the iPhone 6, because it is a technical evolution of this device. The body is constructed from aluminum uni body of the 7000 series, a very durable material that prevents damage from drops.
As for the Galaxy S 6, the device is constructed of a mixture of aluminum and glass. The manufacturer was looking for this to capture the attention of consumers and they somehow got it. Choosing between the two is a very personal matter, as both are well designed and beautiful.
Certainly the screen is one of the most important sections of any smartphone today. It is the component we use to interact with the device and also to see all our content. Both devices have good screens, but the differences are quite remarkable. The iPhone 6 s mounts a 4.7-inch screen. It has a resolution of 1334 x 740 pixels and a density of 326 pixels per inch (dpi). It is also important to mention that the display incorporates 3 D Touch.
This is an innovation that Apple has incorporated for the first time in the terminal and can interact in a completely different way, based on different pressures on the screen technology. The Galaxy S 6, meanwhile, mounts a 5.1-inch screen. Quad H D has a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels and a density of 577 dpi.
The Galaxy S 6 mounts an coat-core processor that consists of four core 1.5 GHz Cortex-A 53 cores and four 2.1 GHz Cortex-A 57. It is a beast of a processor and it is accompanied by 3 GB of RAM. The iPhone 6 s, meanwhile, integrates the new Apple A 9 motion co processor alongside the M 9. In the area of RAM, the new iPhone has 2 GB of memory.
This section describes the hardware differences between the two devices, and they are very noticeable, although the final performance achieved by both is not so great. The reason being, is that the increased integration between hardware and software with the iPhone 6 s, is something that today very few manufacturers can get and that’s what makes Apple one step ahead.
This is one of the most important features of smartphones today, and both manufacturers have taken this into account. The iPhone 6 s is mounted with a camera that has a sensor of 12 megapixels, and video recording capabilities up to 4 K and slow motion. The Galaxy S 6, meanwhile, has a mounted 16 megapixel sensor and also offers ability to record 4 K video.
Battery Life Comparison
The Galaxy S 6 carries a 2550 meh battery, much higher than the iPhone 6 s 1715 meh capacity. However, this difference in capacity does not mean the terminal of Samsung has a greater battery life, since different factors come into play. The Android device has a larger screen and higher resolution, which means higher energy consumption.
To this we must also add the fact that the software is not sufficiently automated and a layer of customization from Samsung Touch Wiz is a real “drain” on the battery. The iPhone 6 s, meanwhile, has improved its energy consumption compared to previous generation and according to the manufacturer, the device has the same battery life as the previous generation despite a lower capacity from the battery.
How Long Does the Battery Last on Each of These Devices
According to Apple, the iPhone 6 s has a range of up to 14 hours on call, 10 days standby, 10 hours of LET browsing or up to 11 hours of use on WiFi. Samsung makes no official statement on the battery life of the Galaxy S 6.
As mentioned earlier the operating system makes a big difference between these two devices. That is why at this point is almost impossible to draw conclusions on which one is better and everything is based on a personal decision of those interested in buying one or the other terminal.
The S 6 incorporates the Samsung Galaxy Android with Samsung’s rationalization layer and continues to receive updates to keep pace maker. Meanwhile, the iPhone 6 s comes with OS 9 and receives updates over the years. Apple releases updates for all your devices at the same time, so we always have the latest version of the operating system.
Another point in which we find differences is the price point. Apple maintains a pricing policy that does not change throughout the life of their devices. So, the iPhone 6 s will cost the same amount the day of its release as the day before being replaced by a new model. Thus, the new iPhone 6 s have the following prices
- iPhone 16 GB 6 s: $800.
- iPhone 64 GB 6 s: $900.
- iPhone 6 s 128 GB $1050.
As for colors, Apple has four different options: silver, space gray, gold and rose gold.
Samsung Price Point
Samsung for its part does not follow the same policy with its devices and because of that, a few weeks after its release, you may begin to see price declines. At the moment the 32 GB model can be found for $600, while the 64 GB version is for about $650. As for colors it is available: white, black, gold and blue.
