    I watched up until 22 mins and now I see why you took an interest in the iPhone. It performed a lot of the tasks faster than the S6, I'm actually really surprised considering the processor and internals comparisons. I notice he didn't focus on how the iPhone 6 was loading webpages, apps and even transitions much faster. I'll definitely watch more comparisons with these two phones.

    It just goes to show, you can put as much power in to the hardware as you want, but you can't beat Apple's optimization.

    With Exynos chipset and the device being optimized for it, the GS6 marks a pretty nice step forward. It is also an advantage that Samsung can start to control more of its own production and development process depending less and less on third parties for components. This advantage will become more apparent going forward. Apple makes a great device no doubt but they are slow to react and take more of a "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" mentality when their fans are screaming for more features and experiences found currently in Android devices like the GS6. Not saying that they would suffer the fate of RIM. It would take a lot for them to alienate the fan base so used to Apple.

    Just asking. Is it also possible that the GS6 being compared to a production unit of Apple still is a non-production unit?

    I am looking forward to reviews from sites like Mobile Tech Review who typically uses production units from all four major carriers and reviews them. They also use them in smackdowns or device comparison reviews.

    I disagree that Apple fans are screaming for more features which android has.

    Most of my friends have iPhones and never mention lack of features

    You're a really keen mobile enthusiast clearly, so without insulting your knowledge, doesn't the iPhone 6 have NFC with apple pay and a larger screen?

    Good one. Reviewer seemed more bent out of shape about the exclusion of the IP67 features than the card or battery issues. Attributed battery performance more to Lollipop 5.0.2 which dovetails with the TMO getting a patch to adress bug fixes and other issues, possibly? Seemed to think it would be fixed by Lollipop 5.1.

    Touchwiz has slow transition speed. You can increase the transition speed.

    The S6 was loading the web-pages faster than the iPhone 6.
    You can check if the page is still loading on the iPhone by the top left side of the UI. There's a circle-ish shape there.

    Transition speeds can be changed.

    App loading speeds are even between the S6 and the iPhone 6, with the S6 being ahead by a small margin. Really, you're just nit-picking at this point.



    As a sidenote, the S6 has a complete lead when going from app to homescreen. That is undeniable.

    In all the back and forth, most set lower speeds to reduce battery drain. I had almost forgotten about the setting. Well spotted.

    Hey man, for the record I'm definitely being nitpicky….I am very interested in the S6, its actually my contender for my HW upgrade in June. Since I have the time to check tons of comparisons, i might as well be as critical as possible. However, in saying that i also know whats important and not to me. By no means am I dissing the S6, it looks like it runs fantastic…but we can't ignore how well the iPhone 6 performs in comparison. Now mind you, the optimization of iOS is mostly a process freezing/halting environment as oppose to Android which acts more like a CPU.

    If i am comparing the greatest upcoming device to last years top seller, i expect to see an improvement even with the Android vs iOS differences. I am by no means a fanboy of Android or iOS, i respect both for what they excel at over the other.

    Good review, battery & smoothness not super solid, but enough to give the S6 the crown.
