Apple iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus against the world

Although they've been on the shelves for just a few days now, the hallmark Apple iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have already obliterated a few sales records during their launch weekend. However, that was practically a no-brainer - both the Apple iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus belong to the arguably most popular family of smartphones. They usually bask in a lot of popularity, but does this mean that they are the best smartphones money can buy right now? Well, as with most things in life, this depends on your personal taste.

Apple's latest and greatest have a tough competition against them, and the rivals are neither outnumbered nor outgunned. We are talking about a bunch of Android contenders that came out straight from the likes of Samsung, LG, HTC, Sony, and others. On paper, their flagships can surely challenge the iPhone crop in various performance- and feature-related battles, and although it's hard to determine a real winner in a real-world comparison, we made a few in-depth reviews that compared the iPhone 6 and its 5.5" counterpart, the iPhone 6 Plus, against a whole galaxy of smartphone superstars. 

Check out our in-depth toe-to-toe battles between Apple's latest and their gravest Android rivals. Don't forget to check out our reviews of both the Apple iPhone 6 and the Apple iPhone 6 Plus, too.

The galaxy s5,one m8,g3,note 3 have defeated the iphone 6 and 6 plus respectively. But no doubt, due to the huge fan base and loyal customers of apple, these two new devices would be the best selling smartphones yet

I do agree with you, before it was apple that was innovating but now with every device they release each year they are just watching the innovations android comes up every few years and just picks up the features one by one. Apple is just sitting up their asses while making google do all the progress that they'll later on adapt and people will claim it as revolutionary once the former introduces it

Please stop posting the gfx benchmarks before they are fixed. The resolution for onscreen tests is being incorrectly detected resulting in higher scores. Off screen scores are the only accurate ones for the comparisons.

I would love to know what world these editors come from. Purchasing the best money can buy, usually incorporates an itemized list of amenities that users may need or want at their discretion. I'm quite sure Mercedes, Bentley and other elegant auto manufacturers are not purposely leaving items out because they feel customers don't need or want them. If any of these editors were to purchase high priced luxury autos, they would be rather picky on the car offering up the most options for the price. Yet, when it comes to these iphones, it becomes perfectly acceptable to excuse Apple for omitting select items that the competition offers at a lower price. John B.

Let's be real for a second, the new Apple has zero compititon right now, even last years 5S is faster than all this years "flagships".

I have had almost every top smartphone to date and I was dead set on the note edge. I recently bought the 6 plus and it is the best phone I have owned to this point. I was an iPhone fan either! This phone works great and so is the battery. iOS 8 is great as well. I won't get the note edge now bc this phone is simply fast, great specs, and even has great outdoor visibility. Anyone who buys this phone won't be disappointed at all!

"Best smartphone money can buy" is where the answer is hiding - iphone6 is far from that. It is an overpriced gadget for fanboys. Most Android and Windows flagships could offer more for less money, so it's a non brainer. Z3 compact is more powerful, more capable, more compact, have double the batery life, it's water and dust resistant, and cost at least 200$ less... Why the hell anyone will buy iphone if not a fanboy. All the best for everyone with their preferences, but some of my friends with iphones already think switching to Z3compact.

There was a company that used to say big screen is useless and more than 300ppi is just for promotion use. Where is that company and its fan? Now ifans are restrictedly big screens lover it seems they are not able think and choose something by themselves and company brain washed them & do it for them.
