Curious to know more, many users who annually size up the good from the bad from one system to another. Overall, it is iOS to Android and vice versa, seeing that the two systems have close similarities and, while maintaining their own identity. Argument that is as true for the hardware than software. So Galaxy S6 Edge+ or iPhone 6 Plus? Let's see it together.
Galaxy S6 Edge+ vs iPhone 6 Plus: Design and finishing
Starting with the design, no squirming hundred and seven years since we are dealing with real products "premium" in every sense of the word, then just under 6 Plus for the iPhone (which Apple could have been more generous with the data sheet). Anyway, no use denying that the manufacturer at the apple is considered the nemesis of Google, with iPhone that make the eye to many. Not to be confused with all users. Myself, I must admit that I have had views of the iPhone 6 and I even owned a 3G iPhone for a while, and it also allowed me to discover in the middle of the mobile more seams.

Yet taken over recently during a holiday in Paris, the quality of the iPhone 6 plus screen is more than adequate. In all sincerity, I do not say that the Quad-HD screens are useless, but they are big eaters who need a battery and an optimization that hold water. For iPhone 6 Plus, the firm at the apple has resigned in selecting a full-HD screen and that's enough. Okay, it is true that the prices of iPhone are very high for what they offer, but they offer some simple Android interface pervert.
|The Quad-HD display 5.1 inches from the Galaxy S6 edge is perhaps one of the best on the market.|
The touch screen of the iPhone is slippery like butter and appreciable grip Mobile makes use of a very successful experience. For having the edge S6 in my possession for several days, I would not say that the grip is less significant, but different. It takes some time to adapt. Again, the screen of the latter was clearly bluffing, perhaps too precisely. But hey, it is well known that Samsung has the habit of eyeful with themes and much flashy contrasts.
|Comparative test: Galaxy S6 Edge+ vs iPhone 6 plus|
Regarding the S6 Edge+, the grip may be more significant, seeing that the screen surface is already wider. For example, the S6 Edge+ will override the limitation of five contacts to add more in the sidebar. Moreover, the interaction options with the contacts will also be improved. Short. All that to say that there is no reason why the Galaxy S6 Edge + screen is a failure, quite the contrary. The definition is higher, the amount of pixels per inch is more important for an almost identical screen size.
Galaxy S6 Edge+ vs. iPhone 6 Plus software interface
Since its inception, Android has become large and mature, with a flat interface in the air. By adopting it, Samsung has not too denatured with its TouchWiz UI. That said, the amount of options - although it has been reduced - is still very important. At least, the user can not complain, saying he can not do that, since Samsung Galaxy "high end" is somewhat considered as the bible of functions, unlike the iPhone where Apple has almost everything locked. For me, the main defect of the iPhone is not being able to natively switch to USB mode to transfer data, you must definitely go through iTunes ...
|Visual comparison: Apple iOS 8.4 against 5.0 Lollipop Android (Samsung TouchWiz).|
In the manner of some Customs ROM of Android, the interface of the iPhone 6 Plus natively has the ability to reshape it according to how you hold the camera (portrait or landscape). For now, the number of applications "really" compatible with this mode are limited, but the situation is quite pleasant. This was a little reminiscent of Paranoid Android, Custom ROM in question can enjoy a tablet mode, among others.
Galaxy S6 Edge+ vs. iPhone 6 Plus: Performance
To see the data sheet, you should definitely tell you that the Galaxy S6 Edge+ is fifty times more powerful than the iPhone 6 Plus, and you have far from wrong. On paper, the Galaxy S6 Edge+ is certainly more powerful, but the iPhone software optimization allows them to maintain high fluidity without really having to type in the components of the high-end. A way for Apple to save money? or else to favor other components it considers most important? Do not forget to recall that an iPhone costs between 150-200 euros to make and, even if we have to count all the labor behind it.
|In the unconventional, we can place the raw power of the Exynos 7420 which is excellent.|

Apart from this, the performance of a product is not limited only its computing power, but expand to all internal components. On this aspect, the iPhone 6 Plus does not complain with good grip on mobile networks, as well as WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS navigation, photo / video and calls. As for the Galaxy S6 Edge+, we have not yet had in hand, but his brother (S6 edge) also offers a good experience for all of these points. So, we want to believe it will be the same for the S6 Edge+ seems embark what is best in terms of components present, and without Snapdragon 810.

Edge Galaxy S6 vs. iPhone 6 + Plus Camera
During my sessions taken pictures and videos, I was clearly impressed by the Sony IMX240 sensor Galaxy S6 edge. At the same time, we are dealing with one of the best photos and videos sensors that can be found in the high end at present. In addition, it is important to remember that this sensor also has the best market opening (f / 1.8), which allows for photos and videos acceptable night.
With the iPhone 6 Plus, it's a bit the same slogan, but the results reflect a Galaxy S6 still above. Why talk about Galaxy S6, when it is the Galaxy S6 Edge+ here? This is explained by the fact that the Galaxy S6 / edge / Plus and Galaxy Note 5 have almost all the same Sony sensor in 2015. The only changes that may exist between them are at the level of software optimization which can be even better on the Galaxy S6 Edge +. Because the expertise of Samsung has been longer, logically better?
Although we have not really had time to test the depth, responsiveness when taking pictures and lavished quality seemed already to go. Of course, we will wait to receive the test mobile to tell you more. For now, it's a little boat, and you say that, but it gives you an idea.
Galaxy S6 Edge+ vs iPhone 6 Plus: Battery / autonomy
Autonomy, a crucial point for many users eyes. In this regard, the Galaxy S6 current edge takes a full day without flinching, but do not expect more. With superior screen size and a larger capacity battery (but not much), the battery life of Galaxy S6 Edge + should not be much more. I kinda feel like repeating myself, but the autonomy of this S6 Edge + should be a day not more.
|We do not see much, but here's another visual Galaxy S6 Edge+|
History repeats itself with the iPhone 6 Plus. After survey of some acquaintances and colleagues, all confirmed to me that the battery of the latter held the day, but not more classic / heavy use (sometimes a little less or a little more). This clearly depends on the use of each. It is sure that by disabling 36 options that consume, you can take several days ... but what if owning a smartphone for the curb? Might as well buy a http://ikkemunandar.blogspot.com /2015/02/nokia-3310-motorola-startac-ericsson-t29.html" target="_blank">Nokia 3310 in this case, right? On paper, the capacity is very close to its two batteries:
Galaxy S6 Edge + have a battery with a capacity of 3000 mAh
iPhone 6 Plus loads a battery with a capacity of 2915 mAh
|Which of Samsung and Apple will have greater autonomy?|
With less powerful components, Apple iOS 8.4 would have a higher consumption holding a mobile Android more powerful components? It remains to be seen, but this mini analysis can let us think. How do you explain that a Galaxy S6 has an autonomy similar to an iPhone 6 (including the components of the latter are less ahead of their time)? A question that probably lend a comparative study in future. I leave you to debate on it in the comments, but do not fight huh.

Galaxy S6 Edge+ vs iPhone 6 Plus: Conclusion - verdict
Again this year, Samsung and Apple will perhaps sow doubt in the minds of users. Users who seem increasingly take the lead screen sizes unconventional, but there are still many advocates more compact smartphones. Taking the position of a user who sees such great products, it expects necessarily conclusive autonomy, but do not you rock him too many illusions and wait for the first tests of experts and users. Tabler 3000 mAh for PHABLET seems to me very thin.
|So it will be Samsung or Apple for you this year?|
