Apple iPhone 6 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 4 vs LG G3: specs comparison

Apple iPhone 6 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 4 vs LG G3: specs comparison
Apple's latest, the iPhone 6, is not only the largest iPhone ever, it's also the most sophisticated and advanced one, but that's a no-brainer, as we are talking about a flagship device here. Equipped with the newest Apple-made silicon inside, the iPhone 6 surely has more than enough processing power to chew with ease through whatever you might throw at it.

We already compared the device specs-wise against some of its rivals, but there are two that are a tad more formidable, at least size-wise. We are talking about LG's G3 and the recently-unveiled at IFA 2014 Samsung Galaxy Note 4. They are arguably the best Android will have in its hand against its iOS contender, and we can only salivate in anticipation of a future real-life showdown between the most advanced smartphones at the moment.

Although the Galaxy Note 4 and the G3 are not in the same size class with the Apple iPhone 6, in the end all of these devices will end up on the same shelves, figuratively speaking, and potential buyers will have a tough time deciding which one's the best option for them. Is it the latest iPhone with its more compact size or the Quad HD Android powerhouses? Better single-handed usage or a ginormous, pixel-dense display in tow? iOS with its overall looks and interface-wide performance or Android with its openness and broad flexibility? Well, we can't answer these questions for you, but we can surely help you get a little more familiar with the specs sheets of these rivals.
