Having been on vacation during Apple’s iPhone 6 event last week I am now playing catch-up, although I did manage to pre-order my new handset last week, but not the Plus model, as it is just too big for my needs. My colleagues did manage to offer some insight into these new smartphones from Apple, but this has made me wonder just how they compare to rival devices.
We have already looked at how the iPhone 6 compares to its Plus sibling, as well as the Nexus 4, although this was a biased review from Android haters. It is for this reason why we thought we would see how the iPhone 6 compares to the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the HTC One M8, which are the two closest rivals — for now.
iPhone 6 vs Samsung Galaxy S5 video review comparison – In the first video the editor compares the features and specs of each phone to see just how they stack up against each other. If you were to look on paper, then it would be the latter that comes out on top, but we all know that the new iPhone punches far above its weight thanks to a seamless integration between its hardware and software.
It is up to you to watch the video and decide which of the two smartphones has the edge because while the S5 seems to be more feature rich, there is no denying the iPhone 6 build is of better quality.
iPhone 6 Vs. HTC One M8 comparison – While we await a full hands-on comparison between such handsets, we can already build up a great idea from the second video that looks at many of their key features, such as hardware and design. Both have a sleek design, although the iPhone 6 has the edge thanks to its 6.9mm thinness. However, the HTC One M8 redeems itself thanks to its front-facing speakers and expandable storage.
Please watch both videos below and let us know which handset gets your vote.
