Apple iPhone 6s Plus vs Samsung Galaxy Note5 vs LG G4 specs comparison

Apple iPhone 6s Plus vs Samsung Galaxy Note5 vs LG G4 specs comparison
The booming phablet category of smartphones has a new heavyweight contestant - the iPhone 6s Plus. With the original iPhone 6 Plus, Apple basically took almost half of the US phablet sales market for itself, so chances are its successor will repeat, or at least approach its customer-grabbing performance! This spells trouble for other hot-shot phablets, though, such as the Samsung Galaxy Note5 and the LG G4. Both have pretty much all it takes to compete with Apple's challenger, but can the Note5's strong design and hardware, or the LG G4's killer camera and leather charm convince the Apple faithful to look elsewhere? We'll have to see about that, folks.
