At the MWC 2015 earlier this week, Samsung showcased two smartphones Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge. As regarding design, both the Galaxy S6 and the S6 Edge are completely different from all the previous Galaxy S series flagship smartphones. The curved corners and the port placements on the bottom of the galaxy S6 and the S6 Edge are quite alike the Apple iPhone 6. Therefore, we decided to compare them with the iPhone 6. Below is their comparison.
Both the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge have display of a 5.1” Quad HD 577 PPI Super AMOLED as compared to the 4.7” 326 PPI IPS display of iPhone 6. The S6 and S6 Edge are powered by an Octa-core (Quads 2.1 + 1.5 GHz) Exynos processor that features 3GB RAM and run on Android 5.0 (Lollipop) while iPhone 6 has Apple A8 processor with dual-core custom ARMv8 64-bit cores at 1.4GHz per core, 1GB RAM and also runs on iOS8. Both the Samsung flagships have 5MP front camera as compared to a 1.2MP front camera on the iPhone 6.
On the home button of both these smartphones, there is a fingerprint sensor. The Galaxy S6 devices have touch-based fingerprint scanner as compared to the earlier Samsung devices which have swipe-based fingerprint sensors.
The S6 and S6 Edge also have 16MP main camera with OIS, LED flash and infrared heart rate monitor which helps the camera to achieve right balance. Comparatively, the iPhone 6 has a 8MP back camera without OIS and heart rate monitor but includes True Tone Flash. There is CAT.4 LTE on iPhone 6 which provides maximum download speed of up to 150Mbps while S^ and S6 Edge have Cat.6 LTE support that supports download speed of up to 300Mbps.
