Hey, guys, today I wanted to do a quick video comparing the iPhone six to the Samsung Galaxy s6. And I wanted to do this very casually just talk about my opinions on both devices, what I think about them what’s better and what’s not better, and give you a nonbiased Point of view of both, just in Case you’re looking into both of these to purchase or you’re just curious about both of these phones, the first thing that I want to talk about is that both of these phones for the first time, in my opinion, are finally on par with each other.
Both of them have great build qualities, you can’t access it, you can’t change the batteries, you can change the storage capacities, is what you get. And there’s a way to change that many people haven’t like that. They’re saying that Samsung is going away from what galaxy owners liked. But you know, they’re matching up Apple, and they’re doing what’s working for Apple, so props to them, and hopefully it works out. But the main difference here is of course, this is all aluminum. And we got an aluminum band around this one with a gorilla glass for back, which won’t scratch very much since Gorilla Glass four doesn’t scratch very easily.
Also got glass on the front and glass here. Both of these glasses are great, and they won’t scratch, even if you don’t have screen protectors on it. So yeah, I mean, it goes far to say, I go far to say that this was even better build quality than the iPhone six this time around. And that’s mainly because the aluminum on the sides here feels a little bit more premium than the aluminum use on the iPhone six. Even if that’s not the ase, it feels like it just feels like a heavier duty aluminum. And then the glass back feels very industrial, and very businesslike, which just makes me feel like I got what I paid for with this one. And this one feels a little bit on the cheaper side.
Cas on the iPhone five s this aluminum felt great, it feels very high quality. But the iPhone six one, it almost seems like if it was a plastic. And I spoke about this in my fake iPhone Versus the real iPhone, both aluminums almost looked and felt like the same thing, which is kind of crazy. And I don’t know why that is I don’t know why the iPhone six feels like this. But it’s just, you know, my opinion that this feels not very high end and not solid. it is very thin. And this one’s light very thin. But this one manages to somehow feel more premium, more industrial more business II, and more worth the $750.
Now moving on from the hardware, we have the software, which is arguably a little bit more important thinking is what you’re using every single day. And looking at the software, we have iOS eight right here on the iPhone six. And we have the latest version of Android Android Lollipop on the Samsung Galaxy S six, Android Lollipop is amazing. But this has a skin called TouchWiz. If you’ve never heard of it, but you probably have if you’ve had a galaxy or heard of galaxy before. And I don’t like it at all. It’s just it’s been improved heavily over the past few years. It’s taking more and more cues from stock Android.
But it still manages to somehow not be on par with stock Android, it just has icons that I don’t like I feel it’s a bit like just full of things that I don’t need. Until a little bit just scattered all over the place. Whereas on the iPhone, you know what you’re getting, it’s just a simple row of icons. You can’t change anything. Apple has preset it like that unless you jailbreak it. And you know, I usually just prefer this, I don’t like messing around with it too much. But if you like the customization aspect, you’re always want to go with an Android device.
You can change the themes, you can change the launchers you can change the icons, aspect of the phone, you can pretty much change without having to root it or, you know, jailbreak it in the Case of an iPhone. And that’s a great thing. But one of the things about the software is the app stores. We have Google Play on here. And then we got the App Store over here. Both of them have been doing a really good job of outing apps all the time. And they’re not like Windows Phone, which doesn’t get very many apps. But Apple’s always had a leg up on the app store front.
That’s mainly because they were one of the first big app stores. You know, they kind of introduced apps and made them what they are today. They are always getting new apps. You know, they’re always getting the exclusives. That’s mainly due to the amount of money Apple has but developers want to get in on the iOS software because they feel like they can reach more people on here. You know you got HBO NOW which just came out. You have periscope which is still iOS only, developers don’t really tend to go and develop an app thinking, Hey, we’re gonna go and build an app for Android first, then we have time, we’ll build it for iPhone.
Now, they usually tend to go for iPhone First, get a lot of buzz on there, like Periscope, or vine and things like that. And once they have enough buzz, people are saying, hey, why aren’t you making it for Andrew? Why are you making it for Android, then it finally comes out for Android. It’s all over gadget the verge. Then people download it on Android, if it would have been the other way around, it would not have worked out. That’s one of the things why you keep getting new apps on the iOS App Store. Not that many new apps on the Google Play Store.
Now it goes without saying that you can find pretty much important app on Android you can on the iPhone, you know, you got Twitter, you got Instagram, you got Facebook, all the important apps, social networks, anything like that. And most of the famous apps today are on both platforms and on many platforms. So, if you’re not like me, that has, you know, tons of pages of apps with different avoid scams and things like that, you’re gonna find every single app on the s5 or the s6, and you’re gonna find every single app from the s6 on the iPhone six, depending on you go to choose.
So you know, just keep that in mind, you can definitely replace your phone that you have right now, to of these phones, you’ll have the same features. But you know, different features depending on what software you go with. One of the biggest deciding factors on phones today are the cameras and the camera quality because you want to take pictures or Instagram, you want to take selfies, etc, etc. So we have a 16 megapixel right here on the Samsung and we have an eight megapixel on the iPhone, based on megapixels, you would think the s the s6 is much better. But Apple has proven that eight megapixels is enough to make the the pictures you take good.
You know we’ve had a megapixels on an iPhone for years now. Other companies are taking 14 megapixels of the things and they still haven’t really been able to match apples quality of pictures. That’s just mainly due to aperture software and everything working together to take a good enough picture. Now I tested both of these out. I can tell you straight out the better camera on occasions is going to be probably the six although they’re very close. And I’m going to tell you why you see some pictures I’ll put up on the screen. But usually most of the time, this one was better focused when use on out of focus, it was fresh, I could zoom in a whole lot more to the picture without losing too much quality. And this was the opposite.
Now the thing about this one that’s good is that most of the times in almost 100% of the time the colors on this one, we’re better when there’s a lot of light. This one right here for some reason tends to over saturate the pictures and you know add too much green or add too much red. And that can of course be fixed in post but if you’re going to post for Instagram or anything like that, you get a better picture of the time with the iPhone six.
And you know, but if you’re going to edit and post process and things like that, you’ll probably get a better picture to use with the s6. So the s6 is more like a real real camera while the iPhone six is more of a portable camera. But both have its pros both avec cons and you can’t really choose either of these phones based on the camera they’re both great, they’ll both be great in change occasions. So depending on which phone you go with, they will both have a great camera so no need to worry there. This one has Ultra HD recording, which is amazing. And this one just has 10 ATP. But the colors on this one are amazing. This one will perform best under good lighting and usually better than this one.
But under bad lighting, this one’s going to perform better. And this one just does really bad. The iPhone six is pretty bad under average lighting especially at night. Yeah, that pretty much settles the camera thing. Both pretty much the same thing. Different goods and Bad’s just how the same thing with the hardware. And the same thing with other parts of the software. And that’s why I’m saying that both of these phones for the first time ever are on par and you cannot go wrong what phone you choose this time around. You know if you don’t care about Apple or Samsung, then either way you’re going to be good.
If you have Mac books if you have if you want an eyewash you’re going to have to get this one right here the iPhone, if you want Android Wear or you have PCs things that you don’t care about the phone necessarily having the same apps a computer and things running smoothly between all devices and things and every phone sounding at the same time then you want to get the galaxy because the reason people are getting this is if you have a Mac then when you get a call here it’s going to sound on your Mac is gonna sound on your iPad. Apple’s trying to get the consumer sad every single product of their so that everything combines and merges together kind of how Windows is doing with all the new Windows devices, everything works.
And all the apps work on all the Windows devices, kinda like that. But you don’t have Samsung doing that. And if you have a normal computer, that and you don’t care about connection between your computer and phone, you want those to be separate things, you be better off with the Samsung an actual standalone device. Now, with that said, the battery life and both of these is okay. I mean, it’s definitely better on the Samsung and pretty much always won’t be until Apple stops deciding that the thinness is more important than the battery. But this one is not great I thought it would be. It’s not it’s not better than the iPhone six plus, definitely better than this one right here. I haven’t tried it enough to tell you .
But the iPhone six is battery is, is okay, it’ll last you maybe maybe a day. If you don’t use it too, too much. This one will definitely last you a day. But even if you start watching like four movies or something like that, both of these devices won’t really give you the movie experience for watching four movies, and still having some leftover to respond to emails, make calls and things like that. But definitely over battery life. You got to give it to the six. And yeah, I mean, that’s pretty much it for this guy’s if you have specific questions about both of these devices, you know, I’m always on twitter at our mar dnl or at our gadgets.
And you can always contact me message me comment down below, I always get back to you guys. I never ignore your messages if I take too long to respond to this because something’s going on. And I’ve just been off for a few days. Aside from that, that’s the Samsung Galaxy s6 and the iPhone six. whichever you choose, you can’t go wrong in this year. Both of these devices are great. And you know, you get a lot of customization options. Because you don’t got to do anything to it. And this one you don’t got to do anything to it either. But you can if you want. And yeah guys, that’s it for this article. I’ll catch you guys in the next one. Goodbye.
