Check out this video of the Samsung Galaxy S5 water test. The only reason I posted this is to illustrate one major advantage of the Samsung Galaxy S5 over the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. It is completely waterproof and incredibly robust! I wouldn’t normally care about such things except for that my wife just dropped her brand new iPhone 6 into a little bit of water on the ground during a rainstorm and it was pretty much toast after that. Other than the Apple logo coming on when I tried to hit the power button and a red screen appearing a couple of times, it never powered on after that. This was all after a quick drop and pick up! For all the people who think that the iPhone 6 or 6 Plus is waterproof, don’t believe it! We learned first hand.
Apple has consistently been making innovative phones for many years, but it seems as if they have outdone themselves with the release of their latest smart phones: the iPhone 6 and the 6 Plus.
Both phones instantly look different from what Apple has previously put out on the market: the iPhone 6 is significantly thinner but also significantly wider than previous phones in Apple’s lineup, but the 6 Plus is even bigger than the 6 (to give you an idea, the 6 has a 4.7 inch screen, and the 6 Plus a 5.5 inch screen).
If you are concerned at the size of the phones, you’ll be comforted in knowing that both of the phones are improvements over previous Apple phones in that they have flatter and more vivid screens, have faster processors, better cameras, quicker internet connection, and much improved voice quality.
But what’s really unique about these phones is that it is the first time that Apple has introduced two phones at the same time. Before, Apple only introduced their new phones one at a time. That trend has just been broken…and it may it more difficult for you to choose between the two.
Overall, these are two excellent quality phones. With faster internet speeds, a brighter screen, better camera focus and more storage memory, it’s hard to fault these phones.
If there are cons that should be brought up, it’s that both phones have an average battery life compared to what’s out on the market. It should be noted, however, that the 6 Plus has better battery life than the 6. Granted, almost all of Apple’s smart phones on the market will get you through the workday easily enough, but neither of the new iPhones have the significantly improved battery life compared to the iPhone 5. Nonetheless, these are two solid smart phones that deserve some attention from people who are always looking for the next latest and greatest smart phones.
