Is the pen mightier than the pull of Apple and iOS? Do Super AMOLED displays make you feel super or does the game selection in Apple's app store for iPhone make you feel giddy? That's right, it's time for another Samsung vs. Apple battle, and this time its between two of the best phablet smartphones on the market: the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and the iPhone 6s Plus. This was an unusually big "s" year for Apple and the latest big screen iPhone has a lot to offer. Meanwhile, Samsung pulled back on some once key features while focusing instead on a premium design and classier materials. That makes the on-paper race a little closer since both phones now lack a removable battery, microSD card slot and IR blaster.
As ever, your OS preference is the most important factor in choosing a phone, that is if you have a strong preference for Android or iOS. The usual factors apply here, though as the operating systems grow more similar, the divide isn't as great as you might think. As ever, Android is the more customizable with widgets, alternative launchers (home screen replacements) and even alternative ROMs. Apple's iOS 9 operating system is very secure, easy to use and streamlined since Apple makes both the OS and hardware it runs on.
There are quite a few points to cover, from display size, resolution and quality to speed to ecosystem and design. So sit back and watch our in-depth comparison of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and the iPhone 6s Plus.
