Apple iPhone 6 vs Samsung Galaxy S6: Which is the best Smartphone of 2015?

  1. Physical Appearance:

Talking about physical appearances of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Apple iPhone 6, you are basically talking about differences.

The Apple iPhone 6 is made of Aluminum, the thickness is just a 6.9mm and weighs a mere 129g. Which means, the phone is sleek, thin and quite minimal yet premium looking in terms of design. The overall design of the Apple iPhone 6 is quite different from the earlier generation Apple iPhone 5s.


Whereas, what Samsung tries to do with the Galaxy S6 is to remove the “cheap plasticky Smartphone” image that its predecessors had. Samsung opted for a glass sandwiched design for the Samsung Galaxy S6, where the front and rear portions of the S6 are covered by Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protected glass panel. The thickness of the Galaxy S6 is same as that of the iPhone 6 at 6.9 mm, however, the device is a tad heavier at 138g.

  1. Hardware Specifications:

We can’t skip this part, right?

For the spec junkies out there, the Samsung Galaxy S6 may seem to outdo the Apple iPhone 6 in every aspect. Which is not entirely true though.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 is packed with a 2.1 GHz octa core Exynos processor, 3 GB of RAM, 5.1 inch QHD display, 16 MP primary camera, 5 MP secondary camera and a 2550 mAh battery.

The Apple iPhone 6 on the other hand, is powered by a 1.4 GHz dual core Apple A8 processor, 1 GB of RAM, 4.7 inch display with Retina resolution, 8 MP primary camera, 1.2 MP secondary camera and a 1810 mAh battery.

Not to forget that both these Smartphones have fingerprint sensors. And the Samsung Galaxy S6 has an added heart rate sensor as well.

The Apple iPhone 6 comes with either 16/64 or 128 GB of internal storage space and in 3 color variants: Space Grey, Gold and Silver.

And the Samsung Galaxy S6 has storage options starting from 32 GB and you also have a 64 or 128 GB variant to choose from. The color variants of the Galaxy S6 are as follows: White Pearl, Blue Topaz, Black Sapphire and Gold Platinum.

Samsung Galaxy S6 or Apple iPhone 6: Which is the Best?

When you compare the Samsung Galaxy S6 with the Apple iPhone 6, both these Smartphones are priced in kind of similarly, yet they are a lot different.

Hardware specifications wise, you get a lot of processing power, an advanced camera, and some great tech with the Samsung Galaxy S6, whereas the Apple iPhone 6 only provides you with features that we have seen in Android, years earlier.

However, the Apple iPhone 6, even with its outdated looking specifications and features, offers competitive functionality and performance when compared to the Galaxy S6.

Therefore, if you were to choose between these two Smartphones, then it can simplified as below:

If you prefer the customizing features of Android, the raw hardware and great additional features like heart rate sensor, then you should go for the Samsung Galaxy S6.

Instead if you prefer an easy to operate OS and great performance and functionality, then pick the Apple iPhone 6. Even after all this you can check iPhone 6 VS Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge as well.
