Earlier this week Apple finally debuted the often-rumored new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. Two of its best smartphones ever released. And while they look just like last year, they’re very different in multiple ways. For those considering the bigger iPhone 6s Plus, here’s how it compares to another quality 5.5-inch smartphone that runs Android, the LG G4.
In April LG took the stage and unveiled its best smartphone yet, the stunning LG G4 with an excellent camera, big and bright display, and multiple genuine hand-made leather backs for customization. It hit the market in early July, and has a good lead on the iPhone. These are two excellent phones that should be on all buyers radar.

Back in September of last year, Apple unveiled the new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus with bigger screens to finally try and compete with Android, and steal back customers that left for big 5.5-inch or bigger screens. This year Apple is building on the popularity of its first “phablet” with the new iPhone 6s Plus, and here we’ll be comparing a few key differences between it and the similarly sized LG G4.
Just as we all expected and like Apple has done for years, the company stuck to its usual 2-year release cycle by delivering a device just like last year, but added an “s” to the name. The new iPhone 6s and 6s Plus look the same, but they’ve made huge improvements across the board. Everything is better from the 12 megapixel camera, 2GB of RAM, iOS 9 and more.
Samsung and Apple have been battling for years over consumers dollars, but now that Apple has a big 5.5-inch iPhone 6s Plus, it has to compete with many other Android smartphones at the same time, not just against Samsung. As a result, many considering the bigger iPhone are also looking at the LG G4, Moto X Pure Edition, OnePlus 2, or even the Galaxy Note 5.
With the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus set to go up for pre-order this weekend, and available in a few weeks on Friday September 25th, buyers have a tough choice to make. To help ease the decision, here’s everything that’s important about the iPhone 6s Plus in comparison to LG’s G4 with the same size 5.5-inch HD display.
