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.
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.
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.!
Man, what happened to the blind test results? Lmao! The Z5 won the last time I checked. And here, it becomes an article to downplay the victory? What???! In the camera reviews, there's not even a single hint that most people opted for the Z5. (,--)
Finally a pretty objective review! Just came from some BGR article claiming that everything apple is pure amazing...all 3 phones have their strengths, but unfortunately it doesn't matter, because the seller archetype demographics are pretty much settled:
Iphones will continue to be the most popular ones because branding > technology and they have the young girls, older generations and "slower" people locked.
Samsung will continue to be leader amongst young professionals who want a little more out of their phones.
And that leaves Sony, with the smallest bite of the pie - mainly people who are looking for an alternative in Android phones i guess.
And then there's me, who prefers LG G4 over all these phones, but have to admit that the S6 Edge + comes pretty damn close...
Good review tho...
I wanna see review when you compare BB Priv and new Lumia top phones to iPhone 6s vs. Galaxy S6 vs. Xperia Z5, maybe you add something like OnePlus 2, Nexus 6 etc.
i think gsmarena is ditching sony toooo much
i think camera looks promising for me
come on gsmarena in your blind test comparison z5 won in daylight and its good . 1080p video was good enough ad stabilization is great with out ois. I think s6 and iPhone 6s cant make out things without ois.
I am going to buy z5 next month yayyyyyyy......
