Apple iPhone 6 Plus vs Samsung Galaxy Note 4 vs Samsung Galaxy Note Edge: specs comparison

83
The unthinkable has finally become a reality - Apple answered to its main rivals and unveiled an iPhone behemoth, which sports a 5.5-inch display - the Apple iPhone 6 Plus. This directly pits it against some of the larger smartphones Android can throw at it. Apple's arguably biggest rival, Samsung, unveiled its newest additions to the Galaxy Note series of devices just a few days ago, at IFA 2014:  the Galaxy Note 4 powerhouse and the innovative Galaxy Note Edge, which waves "Goodbye!" at the side bezels (well, at least at one of these). These are not on the shelves just yet, but once they are being sold, they'll undoubtedly clash against the Apple iPhone 6 Plus. 

We've often dreamt of being able to eliminate the size aspect and compare an iPhone and a Samsung-made device. Thanks to Cupertino's first try at a phone with a large, 5.5-inch display, we're finally able to do so and make an almost perfect comparison between such devices. The Galaxy Note 4, with its 5.7" Quad HD display, and its curious Note Edge variation, with a 5.6-inch display in tow, are nothing but the fiercest rivals the largest iPhone might ever encounter. 

That said, let's not waste any more time and pit the three beasts against one another and see which one's the clear winner in terms of raw hardware power. Well, we'll have to wait for an in-depth comparison, but currently we can compare these rivals at least on paper. Check the specs sheets below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
