Why do reviewers not realize that most of the people use their camera to take photos of themselves or other human beings, and the said human beings do NOT prefer more "resolved details"..
Photos from an iPhone are more or less ready to share as the fine detail is not resolved and hence most of the skin blemishes are already faded out producing a high quality photo.
I have acne scars on my face and none of the photos taken by my Galaxy S5 were worth sharing without heavy photoshop work first while my iPhone 5S took photos flawlessly. There were a few traces but most of the photos taken were not overblown or too dark or too "detailed".. I could just share them right away.
There is a reason people prefer an iPhone's camera. If someone is into taking photos of nature and buildings and birds and scenery and such and prefers absolute details, they would probably prefer a DSLR or a digital camera at first place, not their phone. iPhone usually takes a photo with moderate amount of detail, so without zooming, it comes out perfect, neither too unnecessarily detailed, nor blurred by any means, basically being a perfect all rounder for all purposes practical. Afterall synthetic pixel peeping matters for lab testers and nerds only. A common man would want his camera to perform to his needs.. And I sold that iPhone a while ago because of its terrible interface.. God I hate iOS but that camera was really good.. I might buy a 6S or something for that..
Mick, 17 Oct 2015Everytime cornered I sheep always resort to sales proof..very typical. yeah better run if you ... moreLol! Right???
It's always oh well iPhone sells more... Or they jump to bashing about malware and lags...please...
Or they try and turn things around to somehow claiming that anyone who even mentions hardware thinks that specs are the only thing that counts.
And you know what. They do account for a lot. You need great hardware and software to have the best experience. When they say that they are just trying to play twisting games.
Dodo, 17 Oct 2015OK then, the real test is sales.
In the real world, when having to chose between the Galaxy... moreLol. Cute attempt. But horrible fail.
A few problems. iPhone is the only iOS phone option. For Android there endless other choices besides the S6 Edge Plus. Flawed comparison of sales.
That does not negate the fact that the S6 mopped the floor with the iPhone in these tests no matter how much you try and make it.
If sales alone told the whole story that would make over popularized, trashy, barely talented singers with auto tune the most talented people in music.
The simple fact that I can have full manual control over my images taken with one of the phones makes one superior and definitely not a"tie". The screen which is what I see every second i use the phone is must important. I used both in store and the QHD screen was moved better to look at photos and video ad I was even able to change the color saturation to my taste on the Edge plus. The apple 6s phone is great but no match for this galaxy phone. If I am a brand centric consumer I may have preference for the iPhone for loyalty alone but not quality in this case.
jeon , 18 Oct 2015Samsung galaxy s6 edge+ is bestYes Sir , well said 100% agree
Dodo, 17 Oct 2015OK then, the real test is sales. In the real world, when having to chose between the Galaxy... moreYour logic is amazingly poor. How can the higher number of sales help make your iPhone better? Can it, for example, help make your iPhone show infinite contrast on its display? Or maybe suddenly make it take better pictures and have better audio output? Or probably prolong its talktime? Or maybe the higher sales number can help make your iPhone have smaller bezels, a bigger display, a bit less slippery and lighter in weight? Can it? Please tell me, can it?? No? I didn't think it can, also. :)
Wow! I didn't think that Apple would lose that miserably! And even the battery life goes in favor of the Edge+. That extra stand by time should be no where comparable to the twice of 3G calling time of the Edge+! So GSMA, it definitely is NOT a tie on the battery department. So the final score is actually 12-2! It just goes to show just how the iPhones are actually not in the same class as the Samsung flagships.
A few days ago I was confused as to which of the two phones I should buy. Everything that I consider important with respect to a phone pointed in favor of edge +. Better camera, more storage, larger screen, cheaper. But since I was already using android (nexus 5) so I chose iPhone 6s plus. Great phone. But using iOS reminds me that Android has come a long way ;)
My nexus 5 was a great phone. It performed some tasks better than iPhone. For example Web browsing. But nexus had an average camera that made me feel embarrassed at times. IPhone on the other hand is a consistent performer with great camera and matchless gaming experience
so Samsung Galaxy s6 edge plus
is best, bigger, batter smartphone iPhone 6s plus is lol
Let me make a quick review for 70% of the other people who are not phone geeks like us.
> S6 edge+
More compact design
> iphones 6s plus
Not as good looking
Not as good camera
Smaller screen. Not as good color saturation
Butter smooth performance
Bulky design with big bezels
Made by apple
There you go guys! Just by reading my short review 70% of other consumers can already decide on which phone is better!
The winner is........... the iPhone 6s plus!!!! Woooooh!!! the deciding factor was that it was made by apple!! Yeeeey!!
Well the iPhone is just a good gaming phone what I can see, but they are good games on IOS? (for free?) NO, so the Galaxy s6 edge + wins in an overall smartphone for what I care, Pictures, OS and Audio
Dodo, 17 Oct 2015OK then, the real test is sales. In the real world, when having to chose between the Galaxy... moreEverytime cornered I sheep always resort to sales proof..very typical. yeah better run if you can't back it up with real fact anymore. Cheers
Maan, 17 Oct 2015Which beast i should buy:galaxy EDGE+ or galaxy NOTE 5;reply soon.....urgentBuy S6 Edge + (2016, Huawei may have dual screen amoled, sourced from Samsung)
Buy Note 5: Stylus technology is very matured, very useful.
i would take S6 edge +.
Maan, 17 Oct 2015Which beast i should buy:galaxy EDGE+ or galaxy NOTE 5;reply soon.....urgentI had the regular S6 Edge and I hated it after a couple of weeks.
The curved screen gets annoying and the software for it is gimmicky. Holding the phone without a case is unpleasant after a time. It got really hot and lagged from time to time, badly enough to look as if it was frozen for a few seconds.
I replaced it with the Note 5, which is more comfortable, does not get as hot and strangely, it seems to take better quality photos that the Edge did. I don't use the pen.
AnonD-442781, 17 Oct 2015If people think its better, and objective tests say it is better, there really is no room for ... moreOK then, the real test is sales.
In the real world, when having to chose between the Galaxy or the iPhone, a lot more people buy the iPhone, which means that they really think it's the better device.
In this case, there is really no room for debate, says you....
AnonD-356282, 16 Oct 2015Because that's just not their core business. There's not a single manufacturer out there that ... moresamsung would be the closest to producing all there own parts. apple on the other hand , do they produce any?
JD, 16 Oct 2015You SamboysFanboys think that mobile is all about hardware........ Shame.... Its all about Sof... morespoken like a true isheep. first off the best way to gauge the seamless work of hardware and software meshing , is actually in the camera. since it is mostly post processing that determines the outcome of the hardware, and why 2 identical set ups on different phones , can either be great or absolutely horrible. so to say it is flawless is a little far fetched since most the problems with the camera seem to be post processing , which could be corrected with the proper software updates. minus the detail resolution thats just lens/Mp count, a little trickier to software up that one.
