Rumored Samsung Galaxy S6 vs iPhone 6: What to expect?

There is no doubt about the fact that Apple iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are currently one of the best smartphone in the market. But things can certainly change with the launch of the next device from Samsung. Although there is no surety of the news that when the next device is going to be launched, but individuals are quite certain that the next smartphone from the Asian giant will possibly be Samsung Galaxy S6. With the launch nearing, it will be important for the individuals to find out the things to expect from Samsung Galaxy S6, when compared with iPhone 6.samsung-galaxy-s6-concept

The rumors about the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S6 have been swirling around for quite some time now and some people have already started talking about the date. Since, there is no sure news about the launching date, I will skip that part. Otherwise, there are quite a few things to talk about when we are looking forward to what to expect from the Samsung Galaxy S6. Many fans have already set high expectations for the upcoming device and it will be interesting to see that whether Samsung can catch up to them.


Talking of Apple’s products and their design, I do not think that there is any individual who would rate anything poor. The fact that Apple Inc. has always played with the design of its products, makes things even better for the iPhone maker. On the other hand, Samsung has followed a similar kind of design for literally all its high end smartphones.

On one hand, an iPhone flaunts a metallic body and on the other hand, high end smartphones from Samsung come with a plastic body with an exception to Galaxy Note 4, which flaunts a metallic rim around it. The general expectance would be to have something different with Samsung Galaxy S6 compared to the other devices of the Galaxy S series.


Apple’s iPhone made its much required jump from to the 4-inch screen since iPhone 6. Thus, this is probably the right time for Samsung to make its amends. The rumors are that Samsung Galaxy S6 will be sporting a 5.1-inch screen, which is larger than the display of iPhone 6 by some margin. Although it will not make a substantial difference, but the number might as well play in Samsung’s favor.


On the other hand, rumors also suggest that S6 will have a Quad HD display with a 2560×1440 resolution at 575 pixels per inch. This is way more than the Retina Plus display features of iPhone 6 at 1334×750 resolution at 326 pixels per inch. But nevertheless, Samsung should at least make things better that Note 4 to land the knockout punch.

Operating System

iPhone 6 operates with iOS 8.1.3 and very soon it will be having iOS 8.2 as and when it is launched. As it happens, Samsung Galaxy S6 will also be coming with the latest version of Android, but the change is expected with the User Interface. We again have the same issue here with similar GUI’s in literally all the Samsung smartphone. The general expectance would be that Samsung would make some changes to Touchwiz to add a spark to the UI. This is another section where Samsung Galaxy S6 can again land a heavy punch on iPhone 6. The issues with iOS 8 has not gathered more fans for Apple and Samsung should certainly exploit it.


iPhone has one of the best cameras for quality pictures at exceptionally low light regions. In fact, the 8 megapixel cameras can easily beat some of the 13 MP cameras. The rumors are that Smasung Galaxy S6 might well be coming with a 16 or 20 megapixel camera with optical stabilization. The rumored 5-megapixel secondary camera will also add to the quality. All of us will be expecting a much improved camera with better pictures in low light and wider angles.


The rumors suggest that no 16 GB variants will be available for the Galaxy S6. The flagship device from Samsung will be coming in 32 GB, 64GB and 128 GB models. The prospect of a MicroSD card slot is still under the fog. But this is still better that iPhone which does not support MicroSD cards at all.

Having said all this, there might just be quite a few smaller additions to the Samsung Galaxy S6 which will meet the unclaimed expectations. It will be better to sit back and wait for the launch of Samsung’s Galaxy S6 flagship.
