Apple iPhone 6s Plus vs. Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+. Who is the best among two? Auckland iPhone Repair, Samsung Unlock, Auckland, Queen Street 094192529

3D Touch or curved Edge screen? Metal or glass? LCD or AMOLED? iOS or Android? Speed and silky-smooth response or heavy-duty multitasking? These are the questions and no one's got better answers than you. And if the answers consistently put you on this or that side of the line, you know all there is to know.

Yet, Apple or Samsung? Having looked at each in depth, we know for sure that the side-by-side comparison will be even more exciting. No lengthy introductions needed, get ready for the spectacle.

Even though it looks exactly like the one from last year, the Apple iPhone 6s Plus is a massive upgrade on the inside. It's powered by a blazing fast A9 chip and delivers a long overdue camera upgrade on both sides. The pressure-aware display tech, faster Touch ID, and a tougher aluminum chassis complete their season's tally.

Samsung on the other hand, had a 6-month old device that wasn't in desperate need of an upgrade. That's what you'd think though while Samsung knew a phablet was due in time for Apple's big release this year.

The new S6 edge+ just got a bigger screen compared to the S6 edge - 5.7 inches of curved Quad HD AMOLED, and kept the hardware package intact: an Exynos 7420 powerhouse, a great 16MP camera, a plethora of sensors and superb design.

So, Samsung or Apple? In the coming pages, this big question will be stripped of all intangible forces at play such as brand loyalty and investment in the ecosystem - and will boil down to the physical experience and aesthetic perception of metal, glass, screen and camera resolution, interface and design.

We have a couple of fine phablets fully prepared for action. Two of the finest smartphones and cameraphones one can get if price is of no object. Let's get to it, shall we?

Hardware comparison
The iPhone 6s Plus is as big as the Galaxy S6 edge+. The Samsung's flagship is thinner and comes with a bigger display. This means the iPhone 6S plus has bezel where the S6 edge+ has screen. The size comparison is clearly not in the iPhone's favor.

And there is more bad news. The iPhone 6s Plus has gained some extra weight at 192g, which makes it 40g heavier than the Galaxy S6 edge+. The extra layer of screen pressure sensors not only took a toll on the battery capacity but probably accounts for much of the added weight.

The Apple iPhone 6s Plus has a familiar design, though its chassis is made of higher-grade Aluminum Series 7000, the same used on the Apple Watch. Even a year later though, most of the people find the subtly curved metal unibody quite attractive. It's just the plastic strips covering the antennas that spoil the excellent impression. But you can have it in rose gold now.

The Galaxy S6 edge+ design isn't fresh off the board either. It's been around for about half a year courtesy of the original Galaxy S6 edge. The curved display is great, the metal frame beautifully connects the rear glass with the front. There are no strips or interruptions of the seamless design.

Samsung hasn't yet jumped the rose/pink bandwagon and is sticking to its recent paintjobs, which still look great on the edge devices.

The control set of both devices is kept to minimum - both iPhone 6s Plus and the Galaxy S6 edge+ offer discreet home keys, which double as fingerprint scanners. The second generation Touch ID is blazing fast compared to its predecessor, while the Galaxy edge+ is just a hair behind though its shape isn't as comfy.

Both flagships are big and single-handed operations are almost no-go. Samsung has a lot to offer with the Multi-Window feature running two apps side by side, while Apple's only improvement is the double tap on home to bring the status bar closer.

Let's take a closer look now. The front of the iPhone 6s Plus features a new 5MP f/2.2 selfie snapper and the option to use the screen as a selfie flash. The S6 edge+ also comes with an even wider 5MP f/1.9 camera, which often produces better pictures.

Flipping both phones around reveals the main camera sensors. Here Samsung's offer has a huge advantage specs-wise - its 16MP Sony IMX240 sensor is much better than the 12MP Apple put on the iPhone 6s duo. It has much wider lens, more pixels and overall produces better pictures. Apple has an edge with the dual-LED true-tone flash though vs. a single-LED one on the S6 edge+.

Taking a peek at the bottom of both models reveal a rather similar arrangement. The iPhone 6s Plus has a proprietary Lightning port, which might be more comfortable because of its reversible nature, but we'd prefer the Galaxy S6 edge+ microUSB standard connector because of its wider compatibility with accessories.

And finally, handling those two gems is a real pleasure, but the iPhone 6s Plus is quite slippery without a case on and this compromises the day-to-day handling. The Galaxy S6 edge+ isn't much better, but its metal frame provides for a more secure grip.

Handling the iPhone 6s Plus and the Galaxy S6 edge+

Winner: Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+. The Galaxy S6 edge+ looks are fresher and more innovative than the year-old iPhone 6s Plus design and it's definitely the eye catcher of the two. Add to that the fact it has fitted a bigger screen in the same footprint and the fact it's 40g lighter and you get the picture.

Sure, the iPhone 6s Plus looks and feels premium, as it should, but it's not as premium as a Galaxy S6 edge, not this year at least.

Apple iPhone 6s Plus has an extra layer of pressure-aware sensors but other than that, the screen is the same as last year's - a 5.5" 1080p IPS panel of 401ppi density and an RGB matrix. Specs only tell you as much though as we can testify that when viewed at a steep angle the screen is noticeably better than last year's iPhone 6 Plus.

iPhone 6s Plus vs. S6 Edge Plus
Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ brings a bigger 5.7" Super AMOLED display of Quad HD resolution. The pixel density is lower than the original edge model at 518ppi, but it's still a lot higher than the one on the iPhone 6s Plus.

Colors are a matter of taste and Samsung gives you an option of multiple screen modes that adjust both saturation and the white balance. The contrast ratio is exceptional due to the deep blacks. Samsung has maintained their partnership with Corning (those two have a joint venture) and uses Gorilla Glass 4 on both sides.

iPhone 6s Plus vs. S6 Edge Plus
While the Super AMOLED screen has the deepest blacks possible, the iPhone 6s Plus measurements are show its LCD unit is spectacular for an LCD too. It also has higher maximum brightness than the S6 edge+, though the maximum auto brightness (usually used under bright sunlight) of the Samsung's flagship can go as high as the iPhone's screen.

The AMOLED contrast is absolutely great, but the iPhone 6s Plus IPS display offers one of the best contrast ratios in its class.

So, when it comes to these numbers, the iPhone is often brighter, while the S6 edge+ has an edge in displaying the blacks and the overall contrast.3D Touch has huge potential and its quick launch icon shortcuts are great. Image credit: Gordon Kelly
