On iPhone 6s launch day, Samsung showcases 4K videos shot on the Galaxy S6 edge+ and Note5
Earlier today, the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus went on sale as Apple's first smartphones to feature 4K video recording. As you probably already know, 4K video is not exactly a novelty in the world of Android smartphones, with tens of previously released models offering this feature. Perhaps that's why Samsung chose this day to post a video that includes 4K footage shot on its Galaxy Note5 and Galaxy S6 edge+ (both of which are available to buy since last month). Needless to say, all footage looks crisp and clear.

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.
