Comparison: iPhone 6 vs Samsung Galaxy S5

Design and display

Both terminals have a continuous design, although each one with its own details that differentiate it from previous versions. On the one hand, Samsung opted for a dotted back cover that facilitates the grip and a plastic frame, although yes, keeping the rounded edges and physical button in the center, something that Apple has also maintained, although in a much more modern way, in which sharp peaks have been avoided.

However, what most catches our attention is the screen that the new iPhone 6 has brought with it since, as you will see, it is of a quality below the expected -or rather, the rumored-. Specifically, it has a 4.7-inch IPS polarized panel with a resolution of 1,344 x 750 pixels, which gives us a density of dots per inch of 326, baptizing it as Retina Display HD. In contrast, the Galaxy S5 offers a larger screen, 5.1 inch, but with a much higher resolution, specifically Full HD 1080p, with Super AMOLED technology.

Iphone 6

Of course, with respect to thickness, the new iPhone 6 wins by a landslide: 6.9 millimeters versus 8.1 millimeters for the S5.

Processor and memory

The iPhone 6 integrates a new A8 chip with 64-bit support in a 20-millimeter architecture, being one of the most advanced processors on the market together with the new M8 co-processor that offers the possibility of measuring changes in altitude and much more, increasing the performance of the device, joining all this SoC to 1 GB RAM memory.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 opted for a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 with 2 GB of RAM, so on paper the S5 may seem superior. However, we expect even performance, especially due to the optimization of iOS 8, the relative heaviness of TouchWiz, the South Korean interface, and the 64-bit architecture.

Galaxy S5 Fingerprint Reader

As usual, the iPhone 6 will arrive in several versions (not counting the iPhone Plus) of 16, 64 and 128 GB, of course, without the possibility of incorporating a microSD card. In that regard, the Samsung Galaxy S5 is offered in 16 and 32 GB, but we can incorporate a microSD up to 128GB, so we will have a higher capacity than the Apple device.

Multimedia and others

One of the aspects that have been taken care of the most in the iPhone 6 has been the camera. The main one has a sensor 8 megapixel iSight with new lenses capable of achieving higher quality both day and night. However, this model does not integrate an image stabilizer, something that the Samsung Galaxy S5 does have and that is capable of achieving great moving images thanks to its 16 megapixel sensor. Furthermore, the latter is capable of record 4K video at 30 fps per secondwhereas the iPhone can only record in Full HD (at 30 or 60 fps). However, Apple has been able to improve the slow motion up to 240 fps and therefore, it is capable of doubling its competitor. Regarding the front camera, iPhone has once again improved the optics and included new interesting modes to perform selfies, especially for the smallest of the house, and the famous time lapse.

With respect to sensors and monitoringBoth terminals have a fingerprint sensor and can be used to make payments, a novelty that is presented in the iPhone 6 although for now it will not be available in Europe. This, along with the NFC, allows us to secure our data and make these payments in the easiest possible way. Thanks to M8 co-processor, the iPhone 6 will also be capable of measure our activities, although not for example, the heart rate.

In another vein, Apple has once again taken care of the details and returns to “surprise” with some interesting functions such as the possibility of call simultaneously via Wi-Fi and LTE network (supports VoLTE, like the S5) to β€œport” calls from one network to another, or a barometer to estimate atmospheric pressure.

Finally, the autonomy is one of the points that cannot be compared for now, although according to Apple, the iPhone 6 is capable ofpray 10 days in stand-by u 11 hours of continuous video playback. Samsung, for its part, is able to offer more than a week with a full charge of the Galaxy S5, especially thanks to its energy saving system.

Unfortunately, the price of the iPhone 6 has not been confirmed yet in Europe, but the minimum is expected to be 699 euros free, 200 euros more than the smartphone compared.

And you, what do you think? Will the iPhone 6 be one of the best smartphones of the year and will it surpass Android?
