Which should you choose?
Smartphones are still the hottest technology trend and the market is evolving rapidly. With the ongoing achievements in this era, users are often confused when they plan to buy a new smartphone, as there are so many choices out there.
Let’s talk about two of the most famous flagship phones – Apple iPhone 6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 – and examine their specifications to distill some of the differences.
5 years ago, people wouldn’t believe you if they were told that the camera on their phone was going to be their main camera for day-to-day usage. Today, that’s true for millions of smartphone users. In fact, the camera is one feature that can completely change people’s mind when buying a new smartphone.
The iPhone 6 has an 8 MP camera with TrueTone flash and Phase Detection Auto Focus. The iPhone camera has been one of the best cameras in the smartphones and always satisfies its fans.
On the other hand, the Galaxy S6 has a 16 MP camera on the back that offers Optical Image Stabilization feature and Fast Tracking Auto Focus. Also Samsung has claimed that the camera can be launched in less than a second when double clicking on the home button. This is important in terms of replacing a point-and-shoot camera.
In terms of the video quality, the iPhone 6 can capture 1080P at a rate of 60 frames per second which produces extremely smooth and sharp video.
The Galaxy S6 is capable of capturing 4K video, – 2160P, the next generation of display resolution – at a rate of 30 frames per second and 720P at a rate of 120 frames per second. Again, amazing speed and quality for a camera in a smartphone.
The front facing camera in the Galaxy S6 has a 5 MP resolution and offers Real-Time HDR and Special Low Light Feature that tries to improve the quality of the pictures taken in a low light condition, which has always been a drawback of smartphone cameras.
The iPhone 6 provides a 1.2 MP front-facing camera that is really nice and consistent through different conditions, including low light.
One other interesting difference is that the iPhone 6 has its lens placed in the top left corner on the back of the device, whereas the Galaxy S6 has their lens located in the top middle of the back of the device.
I tried talk about some of the most important features of these devices and left the rest of the feature for the second part of this article. In the next part I will talk about the battery, payment feature, finger print authorization, heart rate sensor, remote control and more!
