Six ways the iPhone 6s is better than the Galaxy S6

Apple introduced the iPhone 6s yesterday, and the outpouring of comments was towards the approval side of the spectrum, with what could be considered the biggest intermittent "s" upgrade Apple has ever done.

We got treated to a new, slightly thicker iPhone, with a pressure-sensitive screen, 14nm chipset, revamped iSight camera, and some neat imaging tricks to match, like the Live Photos endeavor. Can it stand up against the best and brightest from the world's largest phone maker, though? 

We will be making the usual opposing argument posts for the iPhone 6s' advantages and disadvantages against the Galaxy S6, and this time we are looking through the prism of the new iPhone's positives when stacked up against the S6. Of course, at least as many arguments can be made pro the S6, but that's the point of the other post in this Clash of the Titans series.

It just takes too long... You are holding the screen to get the peek, then you keep on holding to get the pop... It seems very gimmicky... but who knows.

You are holding the screen to get the peek, then you keep on holding to get the pop... Okay first, your not holding, your hard press the screen to get the peek, when the preview window opens, you can move around that email, website etc, and if you want to open it full screen you press the screen again but harder and it opens up.

Thank you for correctly explaining this. Too many people think this is long-pressing, when it's really sensing pressure.

Perhaps more LTE bands, but Samsung has LTE.9 instead of LTE.6

Please please please, an Apple logo alone is enough to crash every low class Android phone with random logo at the back. No Apple logo means no buy for me UNDERSTAND? :)

16. RebelwithoutaClue unregistered

Only you would think that, since you make that same lame joke over and over ;)

39. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Don't fix what isn't broken.

45. RebelwithoutaClue unregistered

Poor boy, doesn't even see how broken it is ;)

15. RebelwithoutaClue unregistered

Ahhhh you figured out that joke all by yourself. Same lame joke as mxyzptik, who made that joke a thousand times and still isn't funny.

They're probably the same person. No other sane person would find that funny.

40. Mxyzptlk unregistered

It's an inside joke between grownups. You're too young to comprehend.

44. RebelwithoutaClue unregistered

Hahaha snakeboy and you grownups... not THAT is funny. Didn't know you had it in you haha

49. Mxyzptlk unregistered

I think you mean "now." I forgot you don't have a clue.

50. RebelwithoutaClue unregistered

awww how sweet, focusing on a typo instead of the rest. But that's the way you are haha. And how could you forget, that lame joke is embedded in your brain.

Actually it is funny.

37. RebelwithoutaClue unregistered

I heard it a thousand times and never from a very intellectual person. It's about the lamest joke you can think of

41. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Well maybe you should get a clue and use a different username. You're making it too easy

43. RebelwithoutaClue unregistered

If you would like to use the joke over and over again, be my guest. I'm not changing anything for someone without any form of creativity who thinks he's funny ;) And no not salty, just stating facts. It takes a lot more than you can ever offer to get me salty :P

If they have to resort to attacking your username you've already won the argument.

53. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Are you shocked that he doesn't have a clue?

42. Mxyzptlk unregistered

He's salty now.
