The iPhone 6 and Galaxy S6 are sure to be two of the most talked about and scrutinized phones on the market this year. Both Samsung and Apple have seen impressive levels of success with their past releases of these phones, so consumers’ expectations are certainly high at this juncture.

Whether you’re due for a phone upgrade and are trying to decide between the iPhone 6 and the Galaxy S6 or are simply interested in the competition between Samsung and Apple, you might benefit from an objective comparison of each phone’s specs.

Camera

These days, smartphone owners are using their cameras more than ever, thanks to social media sites like Instagram and Snapchat. As such, camera quality is of utmost importance to many phone buyers.

The iPhone 6 comes equipped with an impressive 8-megapixel camera with improved low-light performance and faster focus. The front-facing camera on the iPhone 6 remains 1.2-megapixel, so it hasn’t changed since the iPhone 5.

The Galaxy S6, on the other hand, features a previously unheard of 16-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, both of which are equipped with f/1.9 aperture, making them superior for low-light shots.

Hardware

One aspect of the Galaxy S6 that many people were surprised to hear at the phone’s announcement is that it doesn’t have a removable battery. The reasoning behind this is not to become more like the iPhone (which has never had a removable battery) but to better enable the devices for wireless charging. The new Galaxy S6 batteries will also have a “quick charge” feature, which is designed to give users up to four hours of battery life on just 10 minutes of charging. The iPhone, however, still has a longer lasting battery (if you go with the 6 Plus).

Display

Both phones have an impressive display; the iPhone, with its 5.5-inch Retina display and 1920×1080 resolution (on the 6 Plus). The Galaxy S6 features a slightly smaller 5.1-inch display at 1440×2660. The slight difference between the display specs may not seem like much, but can be quite noticeable when viewing photos or watching videos.

Ultimately, there’s no clear-cut winner between the iPhone 6 and the Galaxy S6. Both are sure to be excellent phones, and what it ultimately will come down to for most consumers is brand loyalty.
