Adding Shortcuts to Your Galaxy S6 Edge

Samsung Galaxy Note5

After three generations of aesthetic mediocrity, Samsung pulled out all of the stops with the Galaxy S6 and has arguably produced a more attractive handset than the iPhone - especially in its curved Galaxy S6 edge form factor.

The pricing is $32.41 for a 16 GB model Galaxy S6 to $44.91 for the iPhone 6s Plus. They don't mention that Apple will still keep the same 1334 x 750 pixel screen resolution on the 6s and the 1980 x 1020 pixel resolution on the iPhone 6s Plus - this would have been great in 2012, but it is completely underwhelming in 2015.

There is no clear victor here, unless you are partial to a screen size or want a more touch-sensitive display. Perhaps the most useful improvement is the ability to take a quick note with the S pen without having to turn on the phone.

As expected, Apple continued its typical 2-year release cycle, and the new iPhone 6s Plus looks look identical to last years models, but inside everything has changed for the better.

For the shutterbugs, the Galaxy Note 5 is equipped with a 16-megapixel rear snapper of aperture f/1.9 along with dual LED flash and Optical Image Stabilization (OIS). It has got Live Photos where It captures the moments just before and after your picture and sets it in motion The Galaxy Note 5 features a 16MP camera, supports 4k videos and there is also a live streaming video option onboard.

But Apple has always done a good job in optimizing its system.

In reality, much of how an image looks depends on software processing, and this includes low-light pics. Both devices are excellent smartphones, but as a daily driver, the 5.1-inch display would be a little easier to lug around all day.

Yes, Samsung has certainly taken a few design pointers from Apple's past smartphone efforts - it's sort of an iPhone 4/iPhone 6 hybrid - but that isn't necessarily a bad thing. As usual, the Samsung is larger - at 5.1in compared to the iPhone's 4.7in, the same as the year-old iPhone 6.

All devices come with very powerful internals.

The process of adding shortcuts to your Galaxy Edge S6 screen is very simple. Each has a fingerprint sensor that is PayPal certified, Samsung Pay ready, a heart rate and oxygen saturation sensor, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, NFC capable and they both have a microUSB 2.0 port for charging and data transfer.

The Galaxy S6 Edge+ is no doubt, an impressive smartphone. From a new iWatch OS to the finally-unveiled iPad Pro, Apple showed off a large number of gadgets. Neither phone has an SD card slot - once a strong positive for Samsung's flagships - and both stretch up to 128GB at the top end.

Samsung's Galaxy S6 Edge is available with 32GB, 64GB or 128GB of storage but, as with the iPhone, doesn't come with the option to expand. The colour reproduction, clarity and sharpness on the Note 5 is superb.

Additionally, the leak also stated that Apple A9 is going to sport 2GB of RAM, which is twice the amount that was present in iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.

Since we have talked about the differences in display sizes and resolution, we should also compare their actual footprints and weights. Please Apple, let this be the last iPhone to start at 16GB... So not only will you see what a press can do - you'll feel it. Given that phablets are not small devices, the differences should not matter.

Which Is the Better Phablet? Android has more than 51.4% of the total smartphone subscribers in its camp.

This all sounds a little complex for the historically simple iOS, but it has the potential to let you do more within the confines of multitouch.

Throw in the new 64-bit A9 processor that is said to rival processors of the desktop variety, and users should notice a welcomed boost in performance over that of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.
