In light of the fact that the Galaxy S6 just hit shelves this week, we thought it would be a perfect time to remind you of exactly why you should be buying it instead of the iPhone 6. Here are the 6 reasons that we think Samsung has crafted the better device.
1. 577 Reasons To Love The Screen
With a large, but not too obnoxious (looking at you, iPhone 6 Plus) 5.1-inch screen, the Samsung Galaxy S6 has a 1440x2560 resolution that delivers a whopping 577 pixels per inch pixel density. Apple’s flagship sports a wimpy 4.7-inch screen with a lackluster 326 pixels per inch pixel density.
2. Powerhouse Performance
Ridiculously fast and topping out the benchscores, the Galaxy’s Cortex A57 chipset is quad-core and measured at a speedy 2.1GHz. Apple’s very own A8 chipset is dual-core, and a much slower 1.4GHz.
3. Storage Spaces
The S6 runs on Android’s 5.0.2 Lollipop, with 3GB of RAM. The iPhone 6 runs on the new iOS 8 platform, and has only 1GB of RAM.
4. Pay, and Get Paid
In an effort to match the revolutionary Apple Pay, Samsung finally included an updated fingerprint sensor certified by PayPal, and Samsung Pay, that operates with Visa and Mastercard. Apple finally loses its advantage.
5. Camera To Kill For
The Galaxy S6 features a killer 16 megapixel shooter, which has completely outdone the iPhone 6 camera, particularly in low light settings. The Galaxy S6 has a 5 megapixel front-facing camera as well. The iPhone 6 is a mere 8 megapixels, but immediately the camera has been impressively updated from the iPhone 5. However, in low-light settings, the iPhone camera reverts to Apple’s notorious “whitewash” photos. Additionally, the front-facing camera is a pretty pathetic 1.2 megapixel shooter.
6. A Battery To Get You Through The Day
As always, the iPhone 6 has a non-removable battery, specifically a Li-Po 1810 mAh, which, as we all know, will not last you through the day. Samsung has taken another idea from Apple, aside from the Samsung Pay, but this was a downgrade: the Galaxy S6 has a (sadly) non-removable, Li-Ion 2550 mAh battery.
Still, overall, the comparison doesn't lie: for flagship dollars, your best investment is with the Galaxy S6.
