Number of the beast: six Galaxy S6 features that can't be found on the iPhone 6

We are listing six features that the Galaxy S6 holds over Apple's finest, helping you cut through the slack with some tangible advantages that are different from dual-core versus octa-core processor rivalry, or RAM amounts. Of course, we will be making the reciprocal checklist as well, but for now here's the scoop...

So most of these were on the S5 and didn't help. Also, why are they focusing on the iPhone 6 only? The 6plus has OIS. They had no problem comparing the Note to the iPhone before. These people kill me! Honestly, that list is laughable. that's it?!?

"Number of the Beast" is a very appropriate title. Bar the missing MicroSD card slot, the GS6 is a DEMON.

Well, heartrate monitor isn't something I would call as 'not featured on iPhone', I can download Azumio, which uses camera lens+LED flash, and works just as fine. lel?

They were talking about a /bold/ dedicated sensor /bold/ for heart-rate testing purposes (why not a infared camera to supplement the high megapixel camera for seeing farther using infrared).

Everyone crying about no removable battery and no SD card suppor = 0.00001% of the consumer base. I myself will greatly miss these features, but if Sammy catered to just us, they would go out of business. They have to satisfy "it looks cute" buyer than makes up most of the buyer type. This is pretty much what ALL mobile devices are going to eventually do.

Honestly, the s6 could fold your clothes, cook for your children, make you money, and people would still buy the iPhone 6 just because it has an Apple logo. I have no faith in humanity.

I have lost faith in you for losing faith in humanity because people like to have choice regardless of if their choice is "better" or "not better." Do you lose the same faith for the people that chose to buy a Lexus instead of buying a Toyota?

The funny thing is, you don't even see the irony in that statement.

M9 is the Same as the M8. But M9 has a freakin ugly camera module and dual tone colour and a rough power button and A 20MP Toshiba sensor without OIS. The Best Change you can find- It also acts as a boiling slate. You could boil hot water and anything you want! M8 is wayy beautiful and better than M9.
