We’ve been using the iPhone 6 since September and the Samsung Galaxy S6 since April. These are two of the best smartphones on the market though there are some differences that prospective buyers need to know about before picking up one or the other. Today, we want to take a look at a few ways that the Galaxy S6 beats the iPhone 6.
In September, Apple took the stage and announced two new iPhone 6 models that were, and still are, aimed at the Android competition. The two devices come with the usual array of high-end features including speedy processor, solid rear camera, and high-resolution display. The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus also come with large displays a feature that was once a hallmark of Android devices.
The 4.7-inch iPhone 6 is the iPhone for most people and it’s still one of the best smartphones that money can buy.
In March, Samsung took the stage and announced two new Galaxy S6 models that were, and still are, aimed at the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The two devices come with an array of high-end features including speedy processor, solid rear camera, and Quad HD resolution. The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge also come with a premium design language that was once reserved for the iPhone and more recently, the HTC One.
The 5.1-inch Galaxy S6 is the Galaxy S6 for most people and like the iPhone 6, it’s one of the best smartphones on the market.
We’ve been using these two phones, extensively, for a number of weeks now. Both phones are great though there are some places where one or the other shines. With that in mind, we want to point out some of the places where the Samsung Galaxy S6 beats the iPhone 6.
Both of these phones come with large batteries, capable of delivering all day battery life. While that's nice, large batteries often take awhile to charge, something that is annoying if you're in a hurry to get out of the house or office.
Well, if you use the right charger, you can charge the Galaxy S6 faster thanks to the device's QuickCharge 2.0 technology. For this feature to work, you need the charger that came with your phone, or one of these spares, and you need to plug in directly to the phone. While fast charging, the battery can go from below 10% to 50% in about 30 minutes.
The feature is not a gimmick, it actually charges much faster than your average phone. It's one of the advantages the Galaxy S6 holds over the iPhone 6, a device that doesn't come with any fast-charging capabilities of its own.
