Rage Will Go On Among Samsung Galaxy Note 5 VS Iphone 6
It is sometimes said that the world is divided into two types, Apple lovers and Apple bashers. Therefore, there is always a chance that opinion gets tweaked in this way or other. But, it is difficult to compare apples and oranges, because Apple has a huge lead in software platform over Samsung and while testing the very principle of interfacing matters. And then there are standard ways to test the hardware on standard platforms, and if you are clever, enough you can tweak your OS to beat anyone in the run. So, the question is what to compare and how to compare. However in India there is not much difference in price.
Comparing competing Specs
Comparing specs of two different architectures is meaningless. The comparison between Samsung Galaxy Note 5 VS Iphone 6 will rage, but there is a problem; you cannot compare the performance of DSLR with a mobile camera. It is pertinent to compare the performance. Then the question of tweaking will always be there. However, we can take a look at the specs of 64GB variety of the two giants
- iPhone 6 runs on ios 8 based platform and Galaxy Note 5 on v5.1.1 Lollipop
- Dimension of iPhone 6 is 138.1X67X6.9 mm, and Galaxy Note 5 is 153.2X76.1X7.6 mm
- iPhone 6 is 129 gram and Galaxy Note 5 is 171gram
- iPhone 6 has a resolution of 750X1334 pixels at 326 ppi, and Galaxy Note 5 has 1440X2560 p at 518 ppi
Comparing competing technologies
Is anything gets clarified from the comparison? The answer is no. It appears from the above comparison that Galaxy has beaten iPhone hands down. But, may be the answer is not that easy. In the resolution part, Samsung appears to be miles ahead, but two resolutions are based on two different technologies. The Apple use LED-backlit IPS LCD against that Samsung use Super AMOLED screens. Apple is using their proprietary OS for last three decades and Samsung is working on an open platform. Check the hardware platform
- iPhone 6 use Apple A8 chipset and Dual core ARM v8 based Typhoon 1.4 Gig CPU
- Galaxy Note 5 use Exynos 7420 chipset and two Quad-core CPUs 1.5 Gig A 53 Cortex and 2.1 Gig A 57 Cortex.
- iPhone 6 use 1 GB DDR3 RAM and Galaxy Note 5 uses 4GB DDR 4 RAM.
The final verdict
The Apples Retina display is smooth and viewing angles are great, whereas Samsungs AMOLED displays are live with vibrant colors two are totally different technology and time has not yet ripe to deliver the final one. Because, which screen is long haul is not yet established. The craze to upgrade or to go for the new brand is so fast that long hauls are probably meaning a couple of years only. Similarly, the power of processor is always a deciding factor but the threading of the core always matters. In benchmark tests of net surfing the iPhone 6 apparently beats Galaxy Note 5 hand down. But, of you refresh the page iPhone 6 stays in the page while Galaxy Note 5 is opening the refreshed page. So, who wins probably the consumer! The fight for supremacy between Samsung Galaxy Note 5 VS iPhone 6 will force innovation and cost cutting.
