On iPhone 6s launch day, Samsung showcases 4K videos shot on the Galaxy S6 edge+ and Note5

What Samsung does not mention in this new video - embedded below - is that 4K recording is limited to up to 5 minutes on both the Note5 and Galaxy S6 edge+ (in fact, most Android handsets have similar limits). Meanwhile, 4K video recording on the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus seems to be limited only by the amount of storage space available - so, if you have a 16 GB iPhone 6s, you can shoot just about 32 minutes of 4K video before you run out of space. This being said, we're looking forward to pitting the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus against Samsung's latest high-end handsets and see for ourselves which does a better job at recording 4K video.

Samsung can try all they want, but this day belongs to Apple. It's their launch day for iphone, and it's hard to disrupt it.

Agreed. It's a little embarrassing to be a Samsung fan today. They need to let their product speak for itself.

The difference between mono and stereo is clearly noticeable especially when you show videos to friends and family on the big screen with 5.1 channel music system hooked up. I hope 6s Plus has stereo audio, that one may be my next phone.

Apple launch day was weeks ago and was covered to a fault, if not to excess. Except for the telepresence purchase and the teardown, this day is not very dramatic. As for Sammy letting the product speak for itself, isn't that what this add is doing? And finally, as one who had camcorders that could record for over an hour, a 5 minute video will bore anyone you make watch it; a 30 minute video will have them contemplating suicide. A picture may be worth a thousand words but a thousand frames isn't worth a million words. Be succinct people.

"And finally, as one who had camcorders that could record for over an hour, a 5 minute video will bore anyone you make watch it; a 30 minute video will have them contemplating suicide." See you're thinking from a fanboy point of view (I dont have this feature = it sucks)... Every video I recored has been cut, and edited and parts thrown out (especially of my kids between 0-4 years old). You have to film nonstop til they do what you need them or something cute on their own. When filiming anything else: your buddy making a stunt that takes "like, fore-ever". If you showing 5-30 minute continuous videos to your friends - I feel bad for your friends, get iMovie or some other app, and get to editing that crap fast, slow down some parts (helps if you got great slo-mo feature) and speed up other parts, cut off the fat. Make that 30 min video into a 5 minutes of effin awesome!!! You're welcome...

Whatever fan you are, why should you bother about advertisement? it's iphone launch day in US. But for rest of 250+ countries, it's just another normal day. So why should Samsung stop their commercials/advertisements just because consumers in US are going to buy another product? Your statement makes zero sense.

Agreed. All the stunts their pulling right now is ridiculous and shameful. I thought I'd expect more respect from this company. I was wrong. They should accept where they are right now.

Really? Did you say the same about Apples Mac vs PC ads? What's wrong with advertising your product on someone else day? Apple does it. Consumers knowing both phones can record 4K, may decide to make a purchase on which phone does it better. Not saying it can take happen, but I don't see the 12MP camera on the iPhone recording it better than the 16MP camera on the S6's or the Note 5. Do critical.of everything Samsung does. Oh, they are suppose to stop running ads, because Apple is releasing something? What company does that?

Dude, grow up. Those ads are really old and they are nothing but remnants of Steve Job's era. Now that the gap has closed, Apple and Microsoft are cool now in the world of desktops. I'm gonna ignore 90% of your comment since you're probably gonna right an essay no one would bother reading anyway.
