Yesterday, Apple lifted the veil off of its two new iPhones for 2015, the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. We already summed up everything you need to know about them, but here's the gist of it: While the design remains virtually unchanged, the specs sheets of the duo have seen bump in a lot of aspects, with a handful of new interesting features added on top of it all. 3D Touch is undoubtedly the most interesting one, as it unlocks a whole lot of new user-interface interactions.
iPhone 6s is better than the Galaxy S6, the flagship of one of Apple's more serious rivals? While there's no universal and objective answer to this question, yet we feel like we can highlight a number of aspects in which the Galaxy S6 is a better phone than the new iPhone in town.Does this mean that the spic and span new

I can't believe that this article has been posted by phone arena who always praise iPhone.

Not surprised at all. This is PhoneArena revealing (again) its true colors since this site has always been partial to Samsung (look at the top rated phones, it's always been the Galaxy S flagship series year after year).

They do this for literally every major device. If you go to the Phone arena home page there's an article listing 6 reasons why the iPhone 6s is better than galaxy s6. They've done this with Galaxy Notes and LG G's, Sony Xperia's, HTC One's, Motorola X's, iPhones and the One + family. It's one of the tactics that used to draw traffic to the site, by giving brief comparisons that are basically tailor made the ignite fanboy battles. I have no idea why you're choosing to focus on Samsung in particular when they do this for literally every major manufacturer. And for the record, they have pretty much always had iPhones and Galaxy devices have identical scores.

It's called clickbait. PhoneArena's loyalty is to neither Apple nor Samsung, but to almighty advertising. Next headline: 9 reasons why the Apple iPhone 7 will be better than the Samsung Galaxy S7

Well they simply posted 8 facts. I I can add way more. How about the fact the S6's have a heart rate monitor right in the phone, so you dont need to buy a watch. The S6's have Quick Charge 2.0 which sharges the batter in 90 mins from 0 to 100%, while the iPhone even with a smaller battery takes 2 hours to charge. The 5MP camera on the front of the S6 is better than the iPhone 6s, because it too is 1.9 aperture and it can take wide shots

Imagine taking 4K video on a 16gb iPhone 6S at 3.5gb/10min.. Why even have a 16gb iPhone... and then you cant even play it back at anything like 4K on that sweet 750P screen so much LOL

Just to say... I've always been an android user and fan. Last year I bought a Lg G3. It was a flagship months ago but now it is completely forgotten. Don't have updates. I feel like a subpar user. Same with previous Galaxy SIII witch cost me €600. Te only "peace" I got was with Nexus 5 by far the best android I've had. I was really stupid about selling it... It's the last time I waste my money in a non-vanilla android. I'm even considering an iPhone. At least I have more respect; I pay way lot more but I'm given more respect. Total spending in Android crap last 2 years: €1600. Sorry for my bad English

This is a failing on the part of manufacturers like Samsung and LG, and in the US the carriers who take it upon themselves to test and push updates on their own schedule. Google can't force them to provide better support. I understand the frustration though. If you want updates, get a Nexus.

U gotta admit Sammies limitation to software is down to Google + touch wiz however the big frame is google. They always made phones with better hardware however Apple's Software is the best there is and their optimization of hardware to Software is just unbeatable. i'd like to see IOS on a Samsung phone. I still use Samsung and Note5 is good.
