Good review but there is faaar too much weight given to individual aspects of camera & video , while design, hardware etc is all lumped in together for a single point? C'mon, it's like this:
Design, feel, button placement, screen-size, hand-comfort, weight: 1 point.
Speaker volume: 1 point
Speaker sound quality: 1 point
Still standard images: 1 point
Still HDR images: 1 point
Panorama mode: 1 point
Still Low-light images: 1 point
Standard video: 1 point
Stablized video: 1 point
Low-light video: 1 point
I mean seriously?? 8 different "points" for bascially one general aspect of the phone, where design/build/appearance/feel are all bundled up into one? Really makes the "scores" in this thing meaningless. I would never choose a phone based on any of those 8 separate points alone, or any combination of those 8, since they all do the job well enough, just perhaps not theeee best. But I would certainly favour one or the other based only on Weight, or Design, or button placement, or width.. etc etc. GSMArena, I love the in-depth-ness of your reviews, but pleeeeease if you're going to keep scores, make them meaningful....
Anonymous, 16 Oct 2015You can even use it as a hot plate!I heard that some people can use their touch id for one of Apple's new patents. The iLighter, for lighting cigarettes.
Whether you are Apple or Google hardcore fans or not, it is NO-BRAINER to think that Apple iPhone 6S Plus was better than a Samsung S6 Edge Plus.
To me, Samsung S6 Edge Plus is the truly and only winner and the King Smartphone of 2015. Perhaps Apple iPhone 6S Plus just settled for a runner-up?
JD, 16 Oct 2015You SamboysFanboys think that mobile is all about hardware........ Shame.... Its all about Sof... moreSorry to disappoint you, but Samsung package is more full lately.
Even if we talk software functions.
BTW Do you really think that camera , display bigger and better, phone size smaller and 40gr less., battery and fast charging, Ultra Saving Mode, OTG...are not important????
The CPU contest winner should be Samsung even Apple A9 chipset is a real beast. Because Samsung design and manufacture its own CPU based on ARM architecture. Apple design the CPU with stealing the CPU patent from University of Wisconsin without paying them.
"... its chassis is made of higher-grade Aluminum Series 7000, the same used on the Apple Watch"
Can you guys once, say what kind of metal Galaxy 6s Plus use????
Anonymous, 16 Oct 2015only the LG V10 can beat the samsung galaxy s6 edge +
LG V10 the best the &#^@ you're talking about? there's not even a proper review of the V10 on this website, it's still too early to say.
V10 sure looks good, but S808 is not even close to exynos in performance. it's just...not.
Also, LG UI is a virus by itself. (well samsung has it's lagwiz, I guess they should just focus on software).
V10 seems good, but don't get crazy about it.
Anonymous, 16 Oct 2015only the LG V10 can beat the samsung galaxy s6 edge + LG V10 the best LG V10 is a beast. One of the primary advantages of Edge + is how small and light it is for its screen size. Truly the only phone amidst phablets, everybody else , especially V10 are true phablets, very big to use. Also Qualcomm vs Exynos, Exynos wins every time. Lastly the screen, for better or worse Samsung is ahead of everybody else. By sticking to the much beleaguered oled tech (which was always the best tech anyway) lead them to have the best screens by far)...
rynn, 16 Oct 2015note 4 exynos is very similar processor to note 5 exynos? 1. bro, go compare the Benchmark, i... more20% difference in performance. That's all, I wouldn't care even if they are/were 10 generations apart, truth of the matter is that if you have Note4 you'd hardly notice any difference going to Note5. Well you will, things likes no SD and removable battery, but yeah...
"Yet, the best-selling device is not necessarily the best device and that's what phones have in common with movies, books, games, anything.".....This is so so true.
Its so clear with evidence that between these two, S6 Edge+ is the clear winner. However, iPhone sales are higher and I strongly believe Samsung will take over Apple in the very near future. iPhone was the greatest but no more. It is the strong belief and trust on Apple because of the reputation they created through their quality, innovation and after sales support that people across the world blindly buy the iPhone even today overwhelmingly. But I doubt it will last long unless Apple finds "another steve jobs" and Samsung is the biggest threat.
JD, 16 Oct 2015You SamboysFanboys think that mobile is all about hardware........ Shame.... Its all about Sof... more"You Samsung fanboys" haha good one.
Now for real, Who said anything about hardware and specifications? Are you making things up?
I'ts just one thing, RESULTS. did you even read the review?
AnonD-262556, 16 Oct 2015why dont they make chipsets, display, RAM n flash memory of their own if they are very good?Because that's just not their core business. There's not a single manufacturer out there that produces every single component on their own.
