Samsung Galaxy Note5 vs Galaxy S6 edge+ vs Apple iPhone 6 Plus: specs compariso
Samsung today introduced its newest hot duo - the Galaxy Note5 and the Galaxy S6 edge+. To say that these handsets look like a pretty sweet package will be an understatement, as they seemingly employ all of the ingredients that made the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge so appealing, and then add some on top. 

Indeed, both the S Pen-boasting and the curved screen phones are most probably be all the rage on the Android scene for a certain amount of time, mostly specs-wise. 

Now that Apple is also playing in the big boys' league, it is more than natural to compare the new duo with the current crop of Cupertino's largest phone to date, the iPhone 6 Plus. The specs sheets of the trio pretty much speak for themselves and can be compared right below.
