Overall: galaxy s6>xperia z5>=iPhone 6s.
The only issue with the s6 is that the camera lens is soo easy to scratch.
This time around Apple was clearly better. They have to create such a phone since the iPhone 4 days. It enrages me that it is nor taken notice by the "fair and balanced" people. It's only left to be praised by the usual Apple financed media (making it seem worse than it actually is). This iPhone is truly the best for years to come (3d touch, more ergonomic, much more quality alloy than last time and of course the best mobile processor of 2015).
So sad to get relegated to the level of that overheating PoS, Xperia Z5...
Sony has always had best overall quality, feature balance and styling, least production mess ups and has always been underrated.
That's just an interesting fact.
AnonD-72449, 23 Oct 2015On paper the Z5's camera trashes the other ones, but in real life situations it doesn't handle... moreI've never had burn-in before, but I think it only happens if your phone is on full brightness all the time. I like to keep mine low since I'm staring at it a lot and don't wanna damage my eyes.
Of course your well within your rights to have full brightness so its a valid concern I guess.
[deleted post]Me too
Last time I check gsmarena.com there was article about camera where SONY win the article but here they said SONY camera is last between this phones. :|
What about quality of phone call, reception and security. The rest is just marginal. We do make phone calls you know, and most of us dont spend all day on facebook or playing games. Security is most important, and in that regard Android is way behind the game and is dangerous for any Government or secure business.
Z5 for me, after they update the camera software as they promised it a clear winner imo.
A little unfair to Z5 in video section
Good gawd... re-do the tests with the Z5 in the default 8 MP mode. And the Z5 is the only one with stabilized HD video that can handle actual movement, like walking. OIS doesn't even come close.
Xperia z5 is the best
On paper the Z5's camera trashes the other ones, but in real life situations it doesn't handle business like i thought it would. It is unbelievable how Sony hasn't managed to get the post processing part right.. Honestly the GS6 is probably the most well rounded phone of the 3 but the AMOLED tech is only good for 1 a year or 2 before it starts to have those annoying burn ins.. i stay away from that tech completely.. So this year i went for the Iphone 6S 128GB. It still looks great, has a reinforced frame, great camera, great eco-system, easy to use, and is the best performer out of the 3 even with a dual-core processor.. I haven't had an Iphone since the 4S so this experience will be fun.
Samsung galaxy s6...smartphone of the year 2015!
Galaxy S6 is clearly top spec phone hw+sw. Thing I miss in S6 the most is personal assistant and hw camera shutter. But there is 1 thing that I cannot forgive all of the andro/ipho phones: inferior audio recording to lumias. Play vidoe from 1520/... close eyes and listen, its fun to.
It reflects the comment I already gave in the blind test thread .
Samsung deserves to take the lead . It has been the best overall performer .
Sony . They really need to up their game on the software side . I mean Comon !! . Iphone beat you with digital stabilization :/ .
6s still has a very decent camera as it snap very good images ( if not the best ) . Its been a consistent point and shoot snapper and works for majority of the crowd .
I have been mostly a Samsung and Sony user ( s5 now) . My wife been a Sony and Note user ( since N2) . She just got an 6s over N5 ( a break from phablets ) .
What I am glad about is that finally we are seeing the gap between these phone getting closer and closer . What a year 2015 has been ! .
Samsung s6 simply the best . S6 is def best phone on market right now and my faworite
One phone won a lot of these comparisons and then in the end GSMArena just disses out on pronouncing it the winner just so it can be diplomatic and not start a war... *Tsk Tsk
After a long thinking I have chosen the galaxy s6 64gb, waiting for it to arrive. It is more pocket friendly than z5, better screen to body ratio, better low light camera and now even cheaper. Besides the missing features like removable battery and micro sd, for which I can can see advantages and drawbacks, I don't understand why the dropped the fm radio, I don't use it much, but I cannot imagine any advantage in dropping it. I wish the next galaxy will restore this feature, even improving it (maybe with radio dab?).
Pretty biased as usual. Z5 is the best fone of 2015. iPhone is not bad though. If only Apple could've increased the battery. My friends iPhone 6s has to be charged twice daily.
While Samsung has serious quality & ram management issues nowadays. Even S6 edge hangs like hell. Can't believe it. They are riding solely on marketing & kickbacks. No wonder they reduce their prices immediately after release of their fones.!
