Nowadays, the discussion between Apple and Samsung cellphones are quite hot. Some people really love Samsung, but some people are die-hard Apple users. Therefore, let’s look at this problem critically!
If you’re looking for a phone with a large screen, the iPhone 6 Plus and Galaxy Note 5 are by far the best choices on the market right now. Both phones have gorgeous metal and glass designs, offer fast performance and long battery life, and capture excellent photos.
It’s tough to decide between the two — ultimately, it boils down to whether or not you prefer iOS or Android, and whether or not having extra features such as a stylus really matter to you.
But if your buying choice is more complicated than that, there are a few differences between the iPhone 6 Plus and Galaxy Note 5 that you may want to consider.
Both phones will cost you a decent amount of money. The iPhone 6 Plus starts at $750 off-contract, while the Note 5 starts at around $700 without a carrier subsidy.
After some research on the Internet, I found some important notes.
- Both phones are gorgeous, but with the Note 5 you get a slightly larger screen packed into a phone that’s the same size as the iPhone 6 Plus.
- The Note 5’s screen displays colors more vibrantly than the iPhone, but it’s not any sharper than the iPhone’s screen even though it’s a higher spec.
- The iPhone is still much more simple to use than Samsung’s phone.
- The Note 5’s S Pen feels natural and the multiwindow feature is useful, but Samsung’s version of Android is still too cluttered for me.
- Both phones take excellent photos. It’s a win-win here, but, as is the case with the Note 5’s display, its camera also sometimes exaggerates color.
To be clear, both phones are excellent and would be an ideal choice for those seeking a large-screened phone. But, if you’re really trying to choose between the two, here’s what you need to know.
The Note 5 has an amazing screen and lots of features that make multitasking easier, such as its multiwindow functionality and included S Pen stylus. Those are the two areas where it really shines over the iPhone.
The iPhone, on the other hand, is more simple and doesn’t come with any bloatware. Its software is less busy, which makes it easier to use from the moment you pick it up. It takes excellent photos, especially in low light, and the general app ecosystem is more polished. That’s important if you care about getting the best apps as soon as they launch, since many apps such as Instagram, Vine, and Periscope were all available for the iPhone before they launched on Android.
